Coffee and Chocolate Birthday Party

My birthday and my husband's are both in November, just days apart, so this year we decided to combine our birthdays and have one get-together. We did a coffee and chocolate theme (these are a few of my favorite things!) and pulled that theme into the decorating.

We had a dessert table with all types of chocolate goodies on it including a completely raw chocolate torte--it truly was heavenly! My mother-in-law made the "birthday cake" centerpiece--it turned out beautiful! It was a pretty simple party, but we all had a good time and were pretty caffeined-out when it was over!

I am linking this party up to the Celebration Inspiration Party. Head on over there and check out all the great parties!



  1. Wow! What fun!!
    I would have loved to have been an attendee to this partay!
    How does one make a raw chocolate torte?
    We eat as much raw and organic as we can- so this sounds very good to me!!
    Do you suppose you could email me (in your spare time ;) with the recipe??
    The cake is gorgeous!

  2. Thanks so much for joining the Celebration Party! This is beautiful party. The torte sounds amazing and the centerpiece is stunning! Thanks for sharing - Hope you enjoyed your party!
