In case you missed it on my Instagram stories or in last week’s podcast episode, I recently threw a big party at my house in celebration of my 35th birthday! I’m not usually big on birthdays, but have been eager to host something fun at my new house and wanted to give people a reason to dress up + party. My friend Katie gave me the idea for the theme, La Dolce Vita, at brunch in May, and that really got the wheels turning with ideas! In keeping with the theme, I had beautiful blue + white tablecloths, a limoncello signature cocktail, fresh white, green and yellow florals (with lemons!), and fresh Italian food served. It ended up being such a fabulous evening and turnout! Quite a few people stayed over until 3am, if you can believe it. It was certainly the latest night I’ve had in awhile, and it was 100% worth it. Thank you to everyone who helped me celebrate!
