33rd Birthday Party

Saturday, March 04, 2017

Last year for my 32nd birthday party, I had a huge party at The Commoner. It was a lot of work and I was exhausted.  This year, I decided to have a low-key very intimate birthday party with some of my closest friends.  My actual birthday fell on a Thursday this year. I rarely have a birthday party ON my birthday. I tend to choose the weekend before for my birthday celebrations so that I don't run into Valentine's Day Weekend. However, since the Super Bowl was in town the weekend before my Birthday I was super busy with activities surrounding SB51. So alas, I scheduled my B-day for V-day weekend. 

Then I had to decide where to have my mini b-day celebration.  The day after my Birthday party I was hosting the Valentine's Day Blogger Party at Hotel Sorella. I decided the easiest thing for me to do was to just stay at Hotel Sorella. I booked a Junior Suite for my party and decorated it with all of the cute decorations that I picked up from Bullseye's Playground area at Target.  Even at 33 I still love party decorations: streamers, balloons, hats, etc.

View from my Junior Suite Deluxe. It's deluxe because it had views of the may courtyard area at City Centre.
I checked into the hotel around 3 and headed out to pick up my birthday cake. I picked up a sheet cake from the local HEB, and then headed to Oh La La Dessert Boutique right behind City Centre for some fun candles and a special cupcake just for myself. Most of my guests arrived around 7 and it was just a very fun and chill night. We ate cake and ice cream and just talked about life, etc. I also received a free bottle of champage from the Hotel as a result of some mixups with my room service order so we went in on that as well.  After a few hours, some of us headed out to check out the bar scene at City Centre.  This is actually the 3rd time I've had my birthday at City Centre. The first time I had a dinner party at Flora & Muse (unfortunately they are no longer in business) and the second time I had a small dinner at Brio Tuscan Grille and headed out to The Marque and Monna Lisa afterwards.  This time we ended up at yardhouse where I devoured some of my favorite appetizers.
