a very tapas birthday

Saturday, April 19, 2014

Matthew and I are on our way to Hong Kong for the week! But before we take off, I wanted to share some photos from the tapas party we hosted last weekend. 

Curt and I have the same birthday so naturally we threw ourselves a joint party. He was the mastermind behind all the amazing dishes like the paella, saffron meatballs and clams in wine sauce. And what's a tapas party without the sangria?! We whipped one up with passion fruit since they were in season. Needless to say, it turned out AMAZING and the best sangria I've ever had.

Can't forget flowers for the occasion! I picked these out at the corner flower shop. We also snacked and sipped on cocktails while prepping for the party. I'm sure you can imagine how quickly this turned into an all-day event :)

And a birthday isn't complete without the outfit. This was an early birthday gift from Matthew and I couldn't have asked for a more perfect dress. It's the Broadwalk Dress by AQ/AQ and was purchased from Revolve Clothing.

Maria brought over cake and desserts just in time! Clearly, I was ready.

I'm so thankful to have been able to spend my birthday in Japan with such sweet and amazing friends! And most importantly, with Matthew. This was my first birthday EVER with him so I suppose you could consider this a milestone :) I also want to thank everyone for all the sweet birthday messages I received. You guys are the best  and I can't wait to see you all in June!

That's it for now! I will try to post pictures from our daily adventures in Hong Kong. Have a great week and Happy Easter!
