Happy Birthday in Sweet Style

Las Vegas, birthdaysIf you live in Las Vegas, you know the famous junk food platter at Simon, where we love to while away the afternoon, gazing out at the human aquarium. If you don’t, allow me an introduction. My recent trip there last Sunday was for the birthdays of two dear friends. So for the first time, I saw it tweaked a little for a celebration! I’m quite famously not a dessert person, but pretty pink cotton candy and crunchy caramel corn (inside the “to go” container) are perfect treats while finishing the last champagne of a fun Sunday brunch. Enjoy!

  1. How can you not like sweets!?!?! I don’t know if we can be friends anymore? Oh wait, that just means more sweets for me. Okay, I’ll keep ‘ya!

  2. Exactly!! I do like candy. Does that count?!

  3. Oooooooooooooh..I am going to Vegas to celebrate the big 3-0 in December…I WANT THAT!!!

  4. It’s sooo good! So funny how everyone has their “favorite” junk food from when we were younger. Let me know if you want suggestions for your birthday party!

  5. It all looks pretty good to me, except for the cotton candy! Birthdays are great times for indulgences. Had my birthday recently and enjoyed chocolate mousse cake (several slices).

  6. YUM! Was it homemade? That sounds amazing!

  7. I could devour this whole thing!

  8. That plate looks so fun!

  9. Ahh I don’t eat sweets either but this is too much of a temptation.

  10. It’s too fun not to eat, right?

  11. I heart Simon! It’s my favorite Sunday brunch in the city!

  12. Looks Yummy:)
    My first visit to your blog and I loved it. The header is cool!
    Have a fabulous Sunday:)

  13. JoAnna, we need to go! I never have to work on Sundays. 🙂

    Arti — welcome! Thank you so much for coming by!

  14. Do you get to customize this? Such a great idea!

  15. No, you don’t. 🙁 But THAT is a great idea!

  16. I remember this place… to bad I was so hung over that I couldn’t enjoy anything (you and D though did a good job killing it! lol). Think I only ate two pieces of sushi and some soup, maybe one cookie. Most expensive sushi I ever paid for! lol

  17. Welcome to Vegas, Troy! Us locals are used to tourists being hungover. 🙂

  18. I saw the first photo and I couldn’t help but sigh. My birthday is this Friday and some friends are off to Vegas this weekend to celebrate all the Septmeber birthdays in one place. All except mine since sadly I get to stay home in cold but beautiful Seattle. Hopefully I can find a Simon-eque kind of place here, too. I really want to binge on junk food. They say there’s no calories on your birthday. Day-by-day I’m regretting my decision to stay away from Vegas.
