Thirty and a Half

Tomorrow I will have been thirty for 6 months! It was my golden birthday last September 30th (30 on the 30th) so I made a big deal out of it. I started the planning 6 months in advance. I always love a good party and planning it is most of the fun for me.

I started with a color scheme...magenta, of course, and decided to throw in gold for the golden birthday aspect. Then I had to find a venue...after much research I decided to have it at our loft. It is a large open space and after all the money we would be saving on not renting out a space we could spend the money on food and drinks.

Being a designer I couldn't do anything but paper stationary. And since I was going all out I decided to make it cocktail's fun to get dressed up now and again.

With the help of a few friends to help me clean, make the food and decorate the night was a huge success. Thanks for everyone who came out to party! Here are a few pics from the night...xoxo

The party at our loft.

The invites I designed: gold envelopes, magenta paper and gold confetti inside.

Some of the decor: home made garland, lots of magenta flowers, gold 30s all over the place.

The desserts: cupcakes, Oreo truffles with gold dust and strawberries.

The food: bruschetta, hummus and pita chips, fruit kebabs, cheese and crackers, tomato/basil/mozzarella sticks, and veggies.

Nic working hard all night making delicious drinks, he used LOTS of limes with the seven signature cocktails being served.

Blowing out 30 trick candles!
