Mad Science Birthday Party…For Adults!

Science and Birthday

I have the same birthday as one of my husband’s best friends. Instead of a big party (that was last year), we decided this year to celebrate together with a dinner party that included our two families and another family we are both friends with. (There were three kids in attendance, a one year old and 2 two year olds.) Using our Mad Science Birthday Party Collection, which was designed by Lindsay, I developed a party with a bit of a twist — a mad science theme for adults.

To reinforce this theme, the centerpiece for the party was a muddling bar. To stock it, I had three different kinds of lemonade, carbonated and regular water — and wine and vodka for those who wanted an extra kick. We had a combination of fruits and berries that included blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and pineapple as well as two herbs (basil and mint).

The menu for the night was vegetarian — and was all catered by Goodness Bakeshop. When I asked Catherine to plan the menu, the direction I gave her was that I wanted foods that had unique flavor combinations to again bring in the mad science theme but in a sophisticated way.

For appetizers, we started with a delicious cold peach and ginger soup that was served in test tubes and followed it with warm apple and beet tarts.

The dinner included a deconstructed  ceasar salad, broccoflower soup and white lasagna with a tomato froth.

Since it was a birthday and we had kids at the party, we ended the night with mad scientist cupcakes. The fondant hair on the cupcakes, which was created by Edible Details, mimicked the hair on our party hats.
