An Italian/Polish Birthday

Last month we celebrated two very important birthdays, my husband's grandparents.  Not only have they been married for over 70 years but the lives they both have lived on this earth have been enjoyed to the fullest.  When my mother-in-law asked me to create some cookies for these two very special people it meant so much to me.  Since this was an Italian/Polish birthday a sunflower and grape themed party was perfect.  The day of  their party was beautiful.  Sunny, warm and not a cloud in the sky.  A small family and friend affair with some delicious food to say the least.  Everything was fresh for each course.  It was nice to sit and relax with family while listening to the fountain in the background.  Memories were captured on film from this special day. 

Below are some pictures including what the fountain looked like to the dessert table which displayed the handmade shortbread cookies that I made for them (which were decorated with royal icing) some beautiful (and tasty I might add) cakes, stuffed cannoli's which were absolutely delicious and biscotti.
