An Old Fashioned Birthday Party
December 24, 2010 § 3 Comments
I’m turning 25 in a few days! Now I can legitimately say I’m almost 25 (*ahem* Ben *ahem). Anyway, one of my good friends, Holly turns 26 a few days before me and so we decided to celebrate at the Neely Mansion in Auburn, WA with an old-fashioned Victorian style tea party. It was delightful!
Holly is a special friend…we go all the way back (literally) to our first day of community college. We married the men of our dreams with a week of each other and were each others bridesmaids. If I ever have a need, Holly is always willing and able to do anything she can to help. She’s fun, encouraging, and a great mom to a beautiful baby girl (their son is due in the Spring). Everyone needs a Holly in their life!
What a lovely group of women! We really did have a good time, I promise…we were practicing old-fashioned-no-smiling pictures.
Normally, I loathe costume parties (unless I’m doing a Star Trek character) or wearing something old-fashioned. Victorian?? I pretty much insisted that with a theme birthday party I had to dress the part. And I rocked it! That sounds a little anachronistic but I think you get the picture.
These pictures are too much…what fun!
