Hello! So, next Wednesday (July 8 to be exact) I'm turning 23. I guess I'm rather "meh" about the whole thing. After you turn 21, I feel like there's not really anything to look forward to. I mean, I'm not one of those people that feels depressed about getting "old" & I realize 23 is still considered pretty dang young. Regardless, I'm not overwhelmingly excited about my actual birthday. However, I am excited about a little get-together I've decided to host in honor of my birthday next Friday. It's going to be a wine/cheese/bread/etc themed party! I've actually never hosted a proper party at my apartment before, so it should be interesting. It's not going to be anything extravagant-- just a small gathering of good friends & (hopefully) good conversation. I've been spending the majority of the day making the playlist for my party. I plan on posting it here for you to download when it's finished! Should be pretty great by the time it's finished.
Anyway, all of this "party planning" business has inspired me to look for some interesting & lovely party decorating ideas out there in the black hole that is the internet. Here are just a few of my favorites:
These little nightlights are so freaking cute & would give the perfect ambiance to an evening party. (via marthastewart.com)
These are awesome because (a)I love cupcakes & (b) I love putting faces on inanimate objects.
So, combining those two things = DOUBLE WIN. (via aashdown)
Polka dots everywhere! My dream come true! (via camillestyles' photostream)
The morning of my birthday, I'd like to wake up to this. Just sayin'. (via 20x200)
What about you? Have any inspiring birthday images/links/decor ideas/etc. to share with me?
