I threw a Pinterest party for my 23rd birthday! Check out my recap below.
For my 23rd birthday this past year, instead of doing the usual ‘get a bunch of people together and eat somewhere then go home and open presents’ thing, I decided to do something different and throw a Pinterest party. Of course, any sort of party involving crafts usually repels anyone of the male perspective, but I convinced my boyfriend to come (he lives an hour away) and bring along his twin. This was my first birthday back home since graduation, and all of my friends have dispersed into several different places, but luckily, I still had a few in close proximity that wanted to come celebrate with me.The instructions for my Pinterest party included having everyone bring a recipe that was inspired by something they found on Pinterest. Then at the party, we do Pinterest-y crafts. Fun, right?!
The most important element of a birthday party is cake, so I had to do something exciting and Pinterest-y. I made a rainbow cake, and it was kind of awesome (but hard to cut).
To do the “23,” my little sister cut the numbers on computer paper then we put it on top of the cake and sprinkled sprinkles all over it. Another pinterest idea, of course. I really love how the inside turned out.
Other party foods/drinks included cake batter muddy buddies and pink fizzies. The salsa and bean dip were provided by my mom and her friend. Though not from Pinterest, they were still delicious. My sister made some bacon wrapped smokies, and my friends brought crackers, mini corn dogs, and pizza.
I got really into crafting, so I didn’t take many pictures, but, trust me, it was lots of fun. I captured a few of the girls make pebble mats for pots and pans and whatnot. These things ended up failing though. I found a better tutorial after the party, but I haven’t tried to make another one.
I was so thankful that my friends had time to come celebrate with me. I had such a fun time, and I love them all so much.
