Let's be honest, I'd been planning my 27th birthday since the day after my 26th birthday! I turned 27 on the 27th this year, making it my golden birthday. I LOVE gold and birthdays, so this was going to be my best party yet! We just finished our backyard, so what better place for this shindig then right at home. Everyone wore gold and/or tropical print, I drank out of a pineapple cup, Julia made me a tropical cake (red velvet), I got gold 27 balloons, we ate mexican food, played beer pong, and took photos against my "photobooth" backdrop. I carefully picked out my outfit, gold on top, Show Me Your Mumu on the bottom! It was the perfect excuse to buy myself a pair of Mumu shorts! My sister-in-law Jenae even flew home for my party, and my friend Lee came up from Santa Barbara. It was so fun having all my favorite people in one place, and I just love entertaining in our new yard. My main decor items were the gold donkey (I spray painted him gold), my birthday cake, my birthday candles, the backdrop for photos, and my outfit, of course!
