Flashback Friday: My 40th Halloween Birthday Party

Editor’s Note:  This post was first published in October 2012.

I am so excited to share more photos from my 40th birthday party with you. These were all taken by Audrey deWys of My Father’s Daughter Photography, a Westchester-based photographer who works in NYC and the surrounding suburbs. I adore Audrey’s work. She captured the spirit of the party–and each guest’s personality–so perfectly.

Audrey is available to photography NYC area families for their holiday cards. On December 1st she is offering mini-shoots in Central Park; for a $200 half-hour shoot you’ll get 4 edited digital images with a turnaround in a week so you can use them for holiday cards.  It’s a great value.  Visit Audrey’s website or Facebook page for more information.

Here is some of Audrey’s photography from my birthday party:

Amazing, delicious, nut-free and gluten-free birthday cupcakes by Eleni’s NYC (thanks, Cousin Kathy):


R. and I were dressed as matching hippies, circa 1972.  Our costumes were from the Chasing Fireflies catalog:


The real star of the party was my dear friend’s five-month-old son, dressed in his finest Halloween attire.  He was so well-behaved and everyone took turns holding him:


Including my kids, who have become somewhat obsessed with him:.  

Audrey took so many great candid photos of my closest family & friends. I’m so glad to have these:


Next, it was time for toasts….



Six-year-old S. made a toast where he ordered “Raise your hands if you like my mommy!”


The piece de resistance, my 40th Halloween birthday cake from Pink Cake Box in Denville, New Jersey.  It looked and tasted spectacular.  Highly recommend them!
