emily's birthday brunch.

sweet Emily turned twenty-one last month. twenty-one to Emily meant friends, bubbly, + brunch (cake is implied, because cake). 

to celebrate over two decades here on Earth, I baked her a champagne cake with vanilla bean buttercream, topped with salted caramel. adorned with jasmine vine from the property + a bit of edible silver leaf. 

If you haven't already had the pleasure, the birthday girl is the creative behind Lion & Lamb Co. (many of her pieces litter the walls of our home). Emily's work and words are well worth the wander. 1996 created by Emily.

I've yet to understand what's so enchanting about a lit birthday candle, but it gets me every time.
