Golden Birthday

Over the holidays my little brother was not the only one to have a birthday. I celebrated my golden birthday--27 on the 27th! I got really into the theme (like always) and made golden cake cake pops, tied golden pipe cleaners to everything, decorated with golden Christmas balls, and covered the sticks in the flower arrangement with golden spray paint and glitter. In fact getting ready for the party might have been as much fun as attending. Kind of makes me wonder why I am in law school and not event planning :) My dad catered so naturally everyone loved the food (a nice perk of having a chef for a father), and I had plenty of champagne and mulled wine to fill the sugar-rimmed flutes and the bow-adorned mugs.

PS: I sported my new favorite up-do, a braided halo/wreath creation that wraps all the way around the head. I took some of the twigs that broke off from the spray painted sticks and mixed them in with the braid for a woodland nymph kind of look. Sorry the picture is terrible, but it was super cute! Plus it is a cheap and unexpected way to add a little something extra to your look!
