Before the party I gave each important person in my life a small 6X6 canvas with instructions & then we displayed them at the party as a mini-gallery opening (more info on how to do this here).
Everyone did awesome! I can't even tell you how happy each & every one of them made me. People really made the pieces their own & every canvas had each artists personality. I can not wait to hang them up!
WOW, people really went all out (Rachel even shared her recipe for flat bread & Greek spreads here). And I mixed up some fancy "mock"-tails to drink.
A girl could not ask for more than these lovely ladies (& their awesome husbands who also came dressed up & ready to party!)
NEVER use them. It was a great chance to bust them out.
I even made the little golden animal cocktail stirrers (You can buy your own set on my Etsy site). I told you, I have WAY too much fun with gold spray paint.
(cleaning their rooms, planning the party, hugs & kisses) to make my day SUPER special. I can't wait to spend the next decade hanging out & partying with them.
Here's a little list:
1. I fell ridiculously in love
2. I got hitched
3. I inherited an awesome in-law family
4. I earned a degree
5. I had Sydney
6. I took care of my mom
7. I had Rob
8. I started a blog
9. I began & finished writing a book
10. I had Lincoln
A degree, a deliriously happy marriage, 3 babies, & so much more that I can call good. I can only feel positive that there is so much exciting stuff for my 30's bring!
P.S. And just because I can not manage to not add more photos here are some more!
