Dirty 30 Birthday Bash! {Part One}


There have been so many reasons to celebrate in 2011! I wanted to share an exciting part of 2011 for me personally~ I turned 30! Now I am sure any of you have hit this milestone understand when I say that there is definitely a mix of emotions leading up to the big day. I decided earlier this year that if I was going to turn 30 I better do it looking good, celebrating with all my fave people, and having a drink or two ( or three or four… who is counting really?). Now those of you who know me were not surprised to see that my birthday party was a bit over the top (that is just how I roll) with a tent, amazing decor, and a BOMB photo booth (by the best- SoCal Shutterbooth).

Being in the event business has given me the chance to meet and become friends with some wonderful wedding vendors who stepped up to help make my birthday fabulous! There are so many awesome photos of the party I am making this a 2 part blog so stay tuned for the rest of the festivities soon!

Many thanks to my friend and wonderful photog, Molly of Luminaire Images (thanks friend!):

Awesome tent provided by- Create A Party Rentals, thanks Jeff! The A-maze lighting provided by Honored Occasions !

Florals and Decor by A Good Affair Wedding & Event Production!


Jennifer created a one of a kind art installment that literally blew my mind! The whole look screams ME and I LOVED it!!!


Such a dream dessert station filled with gorgeous cakes by my friend Brooke of Simply Sweet Cakery & mini desserts (take note of the fab doxie cookies) by The Appropriated Muffin!


Love the adorable party hats that Jennifer made for photo booth props! We had too much fun with these beauties.


Here I am- all dressed up and ready to P-arty!


Love the Fam-Bam shot here… Mom is eager to put that on her Christmas card!


As the night went on you can see that I was enjoying the cocktails and feeling the fun:

My good friend Brooke and I decided it would be a great idea to throw yarn balls at one another… yep too much fun!


Everyone left with a wonderful custom sweet treat from the fabulous Dolly’s Cotton Candy (P.S. Grape is pretty much the best thing ever, just sayin!)


Stay tuned for even more great photos, hope you can take some of these great ideas for your next BIG birthday bash!
