Norm + Sherri | Huntington Bay Club Birthday Party

When the owner of 24 Carrots AND his lovely wife celebrate a milestone-birthday, we naturally pull out all the stops! Norm and Sherri celebrated their 50th and 60th birthdays at the newly-renovated Huntington Bay Club. Surrounded by amazing family and friends, we were so thrilled to be able to spoil this sweet couple who is obviously extra near and dear to our hearts.

The focus of this event was the food, and just like the quote printed on the menu stated, guests were encouraged to “eat like you mean it!”. A fully-custom menu, personalized cakes, and surprises waiting around every corner made for an epic celebration. Cheers to Norm + Sherri!

Summer Inspiration: Cake by the Ocean Cocktail

We are loving the summer vibes at Baker Party Rentals, as we celebrated their 35 year anniversary! To keep cool this summer, we’ve included the recipe for the fun signature cocktail, Cake by the Ocean, for you to make your own pitcher at home!

    • 2 cups vanilla vodka
    • 2 cups coconut rum
    • 2 cups pineapple juice
    • 2 cups orange juice
    • Club soda, optional
    • Maraschino cherries, pineapple, and orange slices for garnish (optional)

To make a pitcher: Add vodka, rum, and both juices to a pitcher filled with ice or frozen pineapple. Add 2-4 cups club soda to make it more like a punch, or to feed more people, if desired. Place some orange slices and pineapple wedges in the pitcher.

 

We hope you enjoy!

The rest of the Baker Jive 35 was full of some great treats and yummy designs, including a biscuit bar with housemade gravy – yum!!
