One of my ultimates turned 30 with a party and even though her man is an excellent host... I emailed him a bunch of stuff I wanted to do. And because he is the best he let me.
A while back Brittany helped me out with some crafts and I scarred her for life by drilling into a disco ball.
So I brought that back out and made flower arrangements and little Brittany sized ones too.
I used a penny to stabilize the little ones - an old cd for the big ones.
Mary Kenny and I blew up pics of her at Staples - if you do b/w drafting prints it's less than 2.00 to get them this big! Mary made them them big and beautiful and as hi-res as possible.
Me: Ohhh. You are sooooo good at black and white!
Mary: Stop. It's the b/w tool.
Me: But you use it so well.
PLEASE. Can you handle that face!
And one more in the bathroom.
Brittany is not afraid of a bow so I made bow party headbands and hats with blush French grosgrain ribbon I got for a bargain.
For REAL! So Fancy for 30.
Her gift was a coffee table book about Hollywood in the 30's that served as a guest book and YES I marched around the party and made everyone take a polaroid, paste it and write her a birthday note.
B ROSS. You are truly an exceptional human. You bring a friendship to my life that is supportive and bursting with love and laughter. I always say... just looking at your face makes me feel better. Which is why we posted it all over your party. I hope all of your birthday wishes come true! Happy 3-0!
