In the frenzy that has been 2012, I decided to use my birthday as a great excuse to see some of my friends (I’m lucky they remembered me!) and Mayra and her husband were kind enough to host a dinner for me in their lovely apartment. Since, for my 30th, I had what amounted to a day into night dance party, I thought that a more sophisticated option for my 35th birthday would be an elegant meal of my favorite cuisine: Italian! I asked my old friend Arden, a chef at one of New York’s most chic hotels, if he’d be interested in cooking for us and he created e a menu, SOO yummy and amazing, it exceeded my wildest dreams. Of course, it being an AaB Party, it didn’t take long for it to evolve (or devolve?) into something a little more raucus than what I had planned, BUT a good time (and amazing food) was certainly had by all. I’ll spare you the photos of all the insanity, but I will share for you the pretty, modern table top (rentals by Classic) inspired by my post from a few weeks ago! We do so much romance, it was fun to play with a mid-century mod kind of look! (Thanks to Amber Gress for stopping by to shoot some of the soireee).
One of my friends joked that they’d never been to such a fun 35th Birthday, but remember, anything is a good reason to have a party if you feel like celebrating!
