To me, a party is not complete without party favors. I began brainstorming ideas for my 31st birthday party months ago, and while it took me a while, the perfect favor dawned on me a couple of weeks ago. Baskin Robbins gift cards--31 flavors for my 31st birthday!
Turning 31 was a much easier pill to swallow than 30. Like a friend said, “It’s more of a lamb than a lion.” I promised Rob that, after the blowout that was my 30th birthday in Cabo last year, I would do something more low key this year. On my actual birthday I got a facial, visited with my grandma, napped, enjoyed homemade red chicken curry with my family and watched the Bachelor finale. It was perfect and exactly what I needed after weeks of multiple page to do lists.
Of course I am still me and I can’t have just one celebration. I also took a trip to wine country with my siblings, Rob and a couple of friends where I got sung the birthday song by all men. A first for me that was surprisingly lovely. I ended the celebrations with a low key dinner and a movie at the new Alamo Drafthouse in San Francisco.
What is the best birthday party favor you have ever given or received?!
