Yesterday was my housemate Grace's 21st birthday! Sadly, we all had Uni throughout the day, which meant we couldn't celebrate much in the day. However, Rebecca, Ellen and I all sneakily popped into town to pick up more decorations and party food, and spent the afternoon decorating the House of Herts for the evening's festivities! We ended up having to hide all of the party bits in Rebecca's room, originally thinking that Grace would be at Uni by the time we got home... Oops! Nevertheless, we decorated the living room and hallway, and this is what ensued:

milk bottle sweets, gummy bears, "grace" confetti, birthday banners, cocktail parasols, party food, triple chocolate birthday cake.

We spent the evening eating mini cupcakes, party food bits and fajitas with wedges, which was just lovely. It was a proper little tea party, only with some sneaky Malibu and Cokes instead of tea! We spent a good half hour snapping silly shots on self-timer as well, which was hilarious, shall try and sneak some of those into my weekly photos post on Sunday. We also ended up spending a few hours at Uni in the photography studios, finishing our Studio and Fashion Portrait assignments, which was pretty fun. I always enjoy the styling and make-up aspect more than actually shooting the photographs, but maybe I'll learn to love the camera in time. Hopefully I'll get some of those Photography photos up on here soon!


  1. Milk bottlesssssssss!! yumyum :D I miss cute alcoholic tea parties :(

    looking forward to seeing the photography and silly shots up :) x

  2. It looks like you had a really lovely evening! I hope she had an awesome birthday but with friends like you I'm guessing she did. I need more girly nights like this.

  3. oooh fun how fun!
    Your place (kitchen) looks like where I stayed - mercury point!!!
    Have you decided if you are going to watch the fireworks? If you are at mercury point you should be able to see most of it from your kitchen.

  4. aw sounds like you had great fun :)
    Look forward to the silly self timer shots, hehe
