Indeed it did not, we had an absolute ball. What better way to say goodbye to your roaring twenties than to party like Jay Gatsby. Having never had a party before (and most likely never have one again) I thought I might as well go all out.
After a little browse on Pinterest I had plenty of inspiration. I spent the few days before my birthday glittering bottles, making photo booth props and frantically fighting with word trying to get the quotes aligned (not my forte).
I may have went a little overboard with the balloon canopy dropping at midnight and the champagne fountain, but it was all worth it. I managed to pick the most stunning venue in Hummingbird’s Penthouse and the most amazing DJ. I can’t recall of it was the bar staff or the DJ that encouraged me to dance in the bar – like I needed any!
I got a couple photos of the decorations in the afternoon with my new DSLR but I didn’t think it was a good idea to take it to the party – good call given how drunk I ended up! The rest of the photos are all stolen from my friends camera phones, I wasn’t the only person at the party I promise just didn’t want to put everyone on here. There’s loads more photos on Instagram with my own little #laurensroaringtwenties!
