Hi everyone! :) Thank you again for all those lovely birthday wishes!! :) Although I haven't been throwing a big party this year (I normally throw a costume party and invite all of my friends, but they have just been here 4 weeks ago on New Year's Eve and unfortunately, they weren't able to visit us again, because my friends live in several different cities all over Germany, far away from Potsdam), I had such a beautiful day!
My mother has been staying with us for a few days and the night before my big day, she, Flo and I prepared some food and I made some birthday decor. :) I found the idea for the colorful accordion paper flowers on Pinterest and on the same site was an easy DIY for those cute party hats I immediately made. :)
We made my favourite chocolate cake (I'll share the recipe soon...) and I bought doughnuts and creampuffs. :)
Two of my girlfriends came over for afternoon coffee, I got some great presents and we ate a lot. :)
How do you like my decor? :)
I love tea parties, they are the perfect opportunity for using my pretty vintage dishes. :)
I wore my new asos dress, the color is awesome! <3
My friends who weren't here all sent me little packages (they know how I love unwrapping presents :)), the day was great and I felt special! <3
One of my best girlfriends sewed me a dress (it's sooo beautiful, I'm going to show it in an outfit post as soon as it is warm enough to wear it :)), another one made me a beachbag with a towel inside, using my favourite fabric, my mother gave me two wooden vintage chairs for our balcony, I got lots of organic seeds for the balcony, the cutest bird house, a DVD of one of my favourite bands, books, accessories, gift cards for different fabric stores (can't wait to pick out pretty fabric :)), a wooden vintage coat hook with a deer (my best friend sent it to me, I had it on my wishlist <3), kitchen crockery, handmade slippers, a DIY magazine and organic baked apple honey. <3
When I came to work two days later, my colleagues were waiting with a little surprise, how lovely!! :)
I think the best thing about this birthday was spending it with the two people I love most, my mum and my boyfriend. :) They anticipated all my wishes and made my day special. <3
Now I'm 25, a quarter of a century. Let's see what the next year will bring and if I'll be able to achieve my goals.
Thank you for reading and for always leaving comments! :)
