black and gold party

01 July 2013
hi, friends! i'm back from a self-imposed week off from blogging, but i'm excited to be back sharing my idea board for my 30th birthday. i don't turn 30 for another... 10 months, but obviously i'm already thinking about it because i'm crazy i love planning. seriously - i had so much fun planning our wedding and i'm looking forward to planning another event!

along with planning, i also love birthdays. growing up, my parents threw me a true blue birthday party every year until i graduated high school. maybe that sounds indulgent, but i think it was incredibly sweet. i grew up an only child, so the only time the house was full of kids was when we threw parties, so we threw parties a lot. birthday parties, graduation parties, and a pretty epic string of new year's parties in high school and college.

i suppose all the festivities instilled a love of celebrating and the recognition that putting time and energy into planning a party in honor of someone (like james' 30th) is a really special way to show her how much you love her.

my 30th is a perfect excuse to get my closest together again. i'm not sure where it will be (maybe rm champagne salon or gather), but i love the idea of a black-and-gold-themed fete. champagne and confetti will also be making appearances.
