An Intimate At-Home Birthday Dinner Filled with Lots of Love

Call it serendipity, call it fate, call it whatever you want — but it’s no mistake at all that I share my birthday with Valentine’s Day. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a hopeless romantic with a serious passion for anything and everything pink. I just love love (and hearts!). As a little girl, I drew hearts everywhere (at the end of my last name, in my notebooks… even my first car had a heart decal on the lid for the gas tank!). So, when it came time to make a plan for how I wanted to celebrate my birthday this year, I knew I wanted pink and hearts… and lots of it!

For my intimate birthday dinner at home with my family, I wanted to incorporate all of my favorite decorative details and sweet treats. From vintage tabletop, french macarons to lush arrangements of flowers, and lots of candlelights, I wanted to present a romantic, sweet and elegant affair to bring in my 30’s.

I already knew I wanted to team up with my absolute favorite people in the world — Holly Flora, Dish Wish, and Sweet and Saucy Shop. They’re my dream team and I remain obsessed! I can’t thank them enough for always making all my parties one of a kind.

Holly Flora put together the lushest, most romantic floral arrangements in bronze vases of various sizes. Nothing is more gorgeous (or makes me happier!) than a whole bunch of artfully arranged florals in inviting soft pink tones. Then, with the help of my friends at Dish Wish, I created a vintage tablescape in coordinating gold and blush tones to match the overall palette and theme. The mismatched look pulled the table together perfectly in an effortlessly chic way I just love.

Sweet and Saucy Shop created the simplest, most charming pink cake covered in gold flakes for me. I couldn’t get enough of the heart shaped macaroon toppers — so cute!

To match the evening, I wore a delicate lace dress from Ted Baker in a coordinating blush tone. I paired this beautiful, timeless dress with my absolute favorite blush pumps from Valentino. I couldn’t have asked for a better evening at home celebrating with my family!
