So I’m 25 now. Woohoo! A couple weeks ago, I had my 25th birthday and invited some of my closest girlfriends over to celebrate. I thought it was a great excuse to get fancy and cook a delicious meal (before games, of course). I was picturing something something girly and luxe, but my budget was picturing something pretty basic. I’m so happy with how it turned out! So this post is not only about my birthday party (Woo!) but how to save money on dinner party decorations. Today I’m talking party decorations, but I’m going to follow this up with posts on the flower crowns & leaf garland, as well as the cake (it’s a hack!) and the bunting and monogrammed napkin ‘rings’.
