by dena

IMG_8571i turned 24 last saturday and it was one of those birthday’s that goes on and on and you celebrate like everyday for the whole week. on tuesday i had a 24 karat gold themed party. my favorite things about the night: samosas + fresh naan from bombay sweets // $7 of decorations (i am most proud of the spray painted gold palm fronds from my back yard) // s’mores over the stove (literally my favorite food and camp fires are way over rated) // my not favorite: the gold sshlager shots, hince my face in the photos below // back to good things: girl talk + all my favorite people in general // having a craft element (who doesn’t want to make a gold pipe cleaner crown at a party!) // also rockin’ a tuesday like it’s the weekend!
