Here I am going for “Boho Chic.” For this look, I had everything in my closet already and just had to buy the cream dotted tunic. The pink vest was actually made out of a scarf I had in my closet! 🙂

A Bohemian Birthday Bash Banner is easy to make. I printed off the letters B-I-R-T-H-D-A-Y and attached them to these cute scrapbook papers and hung them on a piece of twine with some clothespins.

I sewed these pillows covers below to match my theme (for sitting around the table.) You can find instructions on my “How to Sew A Pillow-Cover In just 18 Minutes” Blog post here.

These adorable napkins were spotted at World Market at the very beginning of my party planning. One tip in planning your party: Find one thing that you absolutely love and then plan the theme/colors around it. These napkins were my starting point!

I sent all of the girls attending the party a link to my fabulous Vintage Bohemian Style Pinterest Board for outfit inspiration! You can see more outfit ideas here on my Pinterest page. Looking back, I should have had an “Outfit of the Evening Winner” and that would have gone to my dear friend Joy on the left below!! She looked so darn cute!

When it came time for me to figure out where I was going to get a 7 x 3 foot table, I finally had this ingenious idea! (I was stumped about this for days on end and finally this idea came to me…at night… while I was supposed to be sleeping!) Does anyone else have some of your greatest ideas in the middle of the night?! Lol! Back to my brilliant idea. 😉  I USED MY BEDROOM DOOR AS A TABLE!! Y’all, isn’t that so FUN?! I took the door off the hinges, which was actually a lot harder than it was supposed to be as the paint was acting like glue. But, after lots of scraping and warm water and hammering those hinges out like a crazy lady, they were free! I then set the door in the middle of the living room floor on two boxes filled with books! Make-shift table right there! Ha!

My "bedroom door-turned-table!!" Now if I can just get it back on the hinges! haha!

Here are my dear girlfriends that were able to attend my Bohemian Birthday Bash! It was such a special evening as each girl went around the table sharing how we had met and a sweet story about our friendship.

Bohemian Birthday Bash Menu included Mediterranean food: Greek Salad, Hummus/Pita Bread/Fresh Veggies, Greek Olives, Chicken/Veggie Kabobs, and cupcakes, of course!

To top the evening off, we made wooden bracelets out of popsicle sticks! Such a fun idea! You can see the instructions for this craft on my blog post “DIY Wooden Bracelets” here.

Below was my favorite pic of the night….A picture with my precious friend Jamie Mc, that I have known since the first day of 8th grade! Jamie exuded JOY like no one I have ever met before. She lived with purpose, intention to love others well, and had the most contagious laugh.  Jamie lived for a little shy of one year after this pic was taken. You can read a sweet story I wrote about my precious friend Jamie in my blog post here.
