With 40 in my rearview, I look back at this party with a big smile but the days before and of, I was definitely stressed about it. Will everyone have fun? Will people leave hungry? Will I have time to get a manicure? (no)
Sharing this party with Kevin, my “birthday bestie” (who will always be one day older than me) was def the best part. Having someone to celebrate with def takes the heat off the singing and cake slicing portion of the party. I came up with the favorite things theme after I spied an adorable kids party with the same theme on Hostess With the Mostess. Via text, Kevin and I free wrote 20 favorite things each, then figured out how to incorporate them into the party. Here’s the fun details of our 40 Favorite Things Birthday Party, one year later!
The party was held in the upstairs dining room at City Bistro in Hoboken. I worked with owner, John Avoletta, on the restaurant branding years and years ago. Its a Hoboken tried and true classic and the party room is perfect!
…fun was had by all! (I hope!) Special thanks to Mike Boylan who snapped a few sweet and amazing photos…
Thank you to all of our favorites. You inspire us every day! 41 I’m comin’ for ‘ya! Xo Dani
