For our families, celebrating golden birthdays is a big deal! A golden birthday is a birthday year where you turn the age that corresponds to the day of the month of your birthday. For example, if your birthday is June 22nd, then your golden birthday is when you turn 22. We also have the tradition that you receive that same number of presents on your golden birthday. This makes the golden birthday that much more special. So this summer when Kimberly’s son turns 22, he will get 22 gifts. Maybe some of them with be golden birthday cookies;)
When a friend’s daughter was celebrating her golden birthday on the 21st of February in the year ’21, we had to make this set of Golden Birthday Cookies to add to the party. The colors for the party were going to be a combination of rose gold, pink and gold so we had a fun color palette to work with. Initially, we came up with some sayings to add some fun and whimsy using the Fishfinger font. And since no birthday is complete without a cake, we added that to the mix. In addition, we added a toast to the set with two champagne glasses clinking. Finally, to finish off the set, a cookie with the number 21 in gold added shine and sparkle.
