Today is my birthday. It isn’t a milestone birthday, but I’ve believe that we should celebrate every day in our lives, especially our birthdays! So today I have a fun lunch and a relaxing spa day planned today with my daughter and a fabulous dinner out tonight with family. It’s going to be perfect!
It just so happens that Paperless Post – the fabulous online and paper stationery company – asked me to tell them what I would do to celebrate my birthday if I could plan a fun soiree! Now that’s a bit of a hard one for me because I love planning parties for other people where I am the hostess, but I am not one to have big birthday party plans when I am the guest of honor. I usually keep my birthday pretty simple. But just for fun if I WAS having a fancy fete, it would be all about the details…
I am really making it a priority these days to spend more time with my friends – people whose company I truly enjoy. So I would have a small party with a few of my favorite people. And Paperless Post has fantastic online designs for birthday invitations, including the one above that I love which would be ideal. This one is perfect for me with its pattern of dots and its bright pink color! So I would invite friends to enjoy cupcakes and cocktails – two more of my favorite things.
And any event that I plan has to have fresh flowers! I especially love bright pink peonies, white tulips, and gorgeous lush hydrangeas. Flowers liven up a room with color and style, and they are my favorite form of decoration.
I’m all about little nibbles at a party – in fact, I would probably have hors d’oeuvres instead of dinner most nights if I could get away with it. So my cocktails and cupcakes event would include lots of frosted cupcakes, salty snacks, and deliciously designed appetizers. I’m thinking these Neapolitan cupcakes would be the perfect flavor because my family and I can never agree on our favorite flavor. Some of us love chocolate and others vanilla. So these are the best of both with fabulous strawberry icing on top!
And to keep the pink color theme going, I would pop the cork on a few bottles of a gorgeous rosé champagne like the one above! After all, it isn’t a celebration without some bubbly!
And my family is the BEST when it comes to thoughtful and fabulous presents that are chic and colorful. Because a color-lover like me can’t celebrate without bright, fun, and festive details!
Thanks for letting me share my perfect little celebration with you and with Paperless Post! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, be sure to check out the gorgeous designs from Paperless Post that will help you celebrate with those you love, too!
