My Glam 30th Birthday Dinner Party


 Almost 12 months later, I'm finally getting around to sharing my super fabulous and glam 30th birthday dinner party! Better late than never, right?


WOOH! 2021 was the year I turned 30!


Before I show you guys all of the beautiful details of this day, I have to just say how AMAZING this dinner was for me! I was around five months pregnant and super excited about turning 30 with my beautiful close friends and family surrounding me. We laughed, we cried, we danced to 90s R&B and I was in absolute heaven! I'm so thankful I was able to bring my most favorite people together to celebrate this milestone with me. I'm BIG on Birthday's! This was exactly what I needed/wanted.


If you follow me on Instagram, then you would already know that right after I rounded out my 30th birthday celebration in Jamaica (we left for that trip a few days after this dinner), I ended up having some pretty scary pregnancy complications and was on bed rest for the remainder of my pregnancy. More on that at a later date, but that is the reason why I just never got around to posting about this party. My life became laser focused on making sure my baby survived. However, when I take my mind back to this beautiful day when I had no cares in the world, I just smile because I truly had the best time. My vision came together perfectly thanks to Shayla at Shayla J Creations! I showed her a few Pinterest photos and she took it from there. All I did was show up and I was absolutely blown away! I loved everything so much!

Turning 30 was very personal to me. My 20s were all about finding myself and finding my tribe. I spent way too many years chasing people, wanting to be liked and loved SO much (I'm a Type 2 personality and being a people pleaser was like TOP of my list). Turning 30 felt like a new beginning for me. I wanted my dinner not only for myself, but to show appreciation to my friends who have literally always had my back. I am more than grateful! I made monogrammed necklaces for all of my girls and my guys got some cigars from me. Both got personalized handwritten notes because I don't feel I can tell my friends I love them enough! My husband asked everyone to go around the table and make a toast to me for my birthday and that's when the tears started. Between my pregnancy hormones and just my overall emotional well-being, I was a mess! I am truly grateful for all of these amazing people in my life.
