Mindy from a {day} with lil mama shares her unique 30th birthday party inspired by our Glittered Glow party invitations.

I had no intention of having a full out party to celebrate my 30th birthday. But after receiving a Tiny Prints coupon in my inbox, I decided to browse the site. Lucky enough, I found the perfect invitation and decided to have a party after all!

With my girlfriends and I turning 30 this year, I wanted to do something different for my birthday where we could celebrate all of us. A Favorite Things party was the perfect way for everyone to give and receive gifts! The black, gold, silver and pink glitter invite was the perfect color palette to decorate my glam 30th Favorite Things birthday party.

How it worked: Each person thought of a $10 item they love. They brought 3 of that same item. Each person’s wine glass had a number 1-12 at the bottom and I had numbers 1-12 folded up in a bowl. The first guest to arrive at the party had the honors of drawing a number from the bowl first. Whoever’s number she drew, she received their favorite thing. Then that person drew a number from the bowl and received that person’s favorite thing and so forth. Everyone explained their gifts as they were given out. We repeated the drawing from 1-12 three times so everyone went home with three different favorite things!

I embellished plain white gift bags with gold ribbon, pink tissue paper and black printable tags so everyone could take their new favorite things home. Since the party was to celebrate all our birthdays, every bag included a simple {~$10} gift that I specifically picked out for each long-time friend.

In addition to their favorite things, I also requested everyone bring a favorite appetizer, drink or dessert. We enjoyed a delicious spread of food as we reminisced about the past 15+ years. After our bellies were full, we played a quick little game of Guess What Year?! I displayed an old picture of me and each guest. The person that guessed the most years (and places) correctly was the winner! I love that I’ve known each of these girls anywhere from 9 to 27 years ago! We might have to make a Favorite Things party an annual tradition!
