My Quarter of a Century Celebration
It had been a couple years (I think since my 21st) that I actually had a birthday bash! I had thought about making it themed, and of course wanted to include crafting in there! I came up with having a masquerade themed party. I wanted the girls to come over a few days before my birthday and decorate our masks. Over Christmas Olga and I had practiced on a few masks, and I think we were both surprised how good they actually turned out! We had to be careful, the hot glue melted the masks very easily!!!
I was surprised how many of my friends ended up actually making their masks. I think after a few glasses of wine it came a little easier.... everyone's turned out great! (Unfortunately I don't have individual pictures of the girls, these are two that I made.)
I decided to be a little different and get my mask painted on! It took about an hour and half and it stayed on all night (minus a few gems).
I was happy with how everyone's masked turned out, proud of my friend's artistic abilities! : )
We had dinner at Bucca de Beppos and definitely made a scene! There were about 20 girlfriends that came out that night, it was a lot of fun!!!
I am very thankful I have
such great friends to have shared my special day with!!!
