Screen Shot 2015-04-17 at 12.26.48 PMIn the midst of many...and I mean a few birthdays each day this week, I have been in full blown birthday party mode each night.  Which then had me thinking about about the Golden Birthday Bash I never had.  Before you feel sorry for me, I was 7 years old and that was before Golden Birthday Party's were a big deal.  Although it won't be an "official" Golden Birthday, I am planning to have one next birthday bash....30 years later!

Since I am a bit of a planner, I thought I would share some ideas that I think have been done well.  Not only can you use these ideas for only a Golden Birthday Party, but you can adjust to fit any fabulous event you are planning...

Before feathers were super trendy (you know I have to say that - ha), I have always loved using them in decorating.  I'll blame it on my cherokee heritage. I love the simple clean accent that feathers add!

I love when themes are carried at with class and not super overwhelming.  The above picture is a great example of how to go gold, but not feel like you are saturated.  Always a good reminder to not go overboard.

And of course, don't be afraid to take the gathering outside.  We are now in the wonderful season of Spring...even though it feels like summer here in SoCal.  There is nothing like eating outside under twinkle lights!

Your Turn...

Now that I've share the beginning plannings of a my unofficial "official" Golden Birthday party in 16 months, what are some ideas or things you are going to add in your celebration?
