So, just to let you all know that I celebrated my 21st birthday in my backyard and had an outer space dress up theme. Unfortunately, not everyone came dressed, so I included photos of the people who did dress up - even then, there's not many at all :(
My plan for the day was to have a BBQ and set up my backyard with some styrofoam planets and cut out stars. My dad bought the meats on the morning of the party so it was quite rushed! I seriously was so stressed and panicked since everything wasn't done yet and it was almost time for the guests to arrive. My decorations also weren't up! I was buggered and rushing everywhere!
Nevertheless, I had some fun AND didn't end up drinking as much as all my friends wanted me to! Just a little context, I'm not a drinker and my friends are always curious to see what i'm like when i'm drunk and I always say no to a drink. They figured it was my 21st, no exceptions, get drunk and I barely drank anything. I got away with half a shot of tequila hahaha! Suckers to all my friends who were so keen on getting me drunk :D
My brother got some snaps for me of the night and my friend took a few good photos for the time he was there, so I'll steal those from his FB, i'm sure he won't mind :)
I'll leave you with some pics and then show you my nails and awesome birthday cake that a friend made for me :)
My girlfriends who came dressed as Sailor Venus and Sailor Mars respectively :) I dressed as Padme from Star Wars!
My boyfriend as Darth Vader and I!
Another of my girlfriends, dressed as R2D2!
My family :) Older brother as Green Lantern and my younger as a Mortal Kombat character. I forgot to take the opacity down for my watermark =/
Here's a shot of my costume, courtesy of my friend!
A really nice shot of my uncle cooking on the barbie (courtesy of my friend), I included this pic cause you can see some of the decorations!
This is my friend dressed as MIB (courtesy of my friend). More decorations! This looks like a mysterious shot, don't you think?
It was supposed to look better than this, but time decided otherwise! I tied these up real quick and it was kind of windy on the night - bummer! I painted the little rocket and cut out letters and glittered them. I also painted all the planets and cut out all the stars; wish I got a better photo of the decorations! My bf, brothers and one of his friends helped hang all the decorations :) Big thanks to them!
My awesome birthday cake! Look how cute it is, and all the planets are there too - I love it! If you are in Sydney and need a cake, my friend makes cakes, cupcakes and cake pops! Check her out at Sweet Ocassions!
And here are my birthday nails!!! I decided to do 2 accent galaxy nails for the 'outer space' theme and then have the rest inspired by my costume. The costume is white, silver armbands and brown boots, so that's where the colour inspiration came from. Shame you can't see the silver on my arms, since the shawl is covering it, so here's a stock image of the costume.
My bf and my friend dressed in MIB ended up vomitting on the night, and apparently, so did my younger brother! Cleanup wasn't too bad, so all good! My dad helped me clean all the rubbish and take down the ladders and lights etc.
That's my birthday in a post! Hope you enjoyed reading this and looking at all the pics :) Hopefully it was what you were all looking forward to! Till the next post, takecare!
