The year 2020 was totally different from everything I have lived so far. It is not a totally negative experience because I like to focus on the positive things. I did not give up the celebration of events and I prepared almost as before for anniversaries! I think we have all learned to focus more on the space we live in, on the events inside the house and to make an ordinary day a successful experience. I redecorated several times so as not to feel imprisoned at home and each time I fell in love with the place where I live.
For me, anniversaries and holidays are a pretext to prepare and experience different recipes and decorations, we can do this every day, but I think that the celebrated event would not feel as special. The cake is the most interesting element and the highlight of the day so I have prepared some ideas for cakes, appetizers and decorations that I hope will inspire you for the next event. You don’t have to prepare everything if you don’t like it, I think you would lose the joy of the event. If you feel burdened with the preparations, I think it is better to ask for help.
My first birthday celebrated the way I wanted it to be was at the age of 20, but I made up for lost anniversaries by celebrating others. Since then I have not missed any anniversary and no occasion to celebrate a loved one, if that involved making a cake for the person celebrated it was even more interesting. Cakes can take different forms and in terms of flavors and decoration the offer is unlimited. You can opt for perfectly contoured cakes, dressed in fondant or marzipan, classic cakes or you can experiment with what you have in the kitchen (I do this most often). More details in this regard can be found in the article Birthday Decoration.
Whether you celebrate your time together, the date you met, the date you got engaged, the wedding date or Valentine’s Day , you can sweeten your day with a cake or other types of dessert that remind you how sweet love is. Such a celebration is usually celebrated in pairs so something sweet and a sparkling wine are enough (for me).
The winter holidays always transport me to another dimension – maybe all the stories built around this season contribute to my mood, although I have always known that they are not real. I think that most families have certain recipes that they prepare only during the winter holidays, and this habit makes the event even more awaited. Winter cakes and desserts with enticing aromas specific to the holiday, successfully complete the magical atmosphere of this period.
Other types of anniversaries
Family reunions, meetings after 10 years held by colleagues from various institutions or reunions after long periods can be considered important events. Each of us chooses what are the important days we celebrate and how we prepare for them. Even if you simply choose to pamper yourself or pamper your loved ones – the day has become an event.
Lots of events are waiting to be celebrated, let your imagination run wild and get ready for any day you consider a holiday. We all deserve to feel special, so why not do this as often as possible?
Both the dishes and the photos belong to me, I will probably mention this in each article to remove any doubt!
