Lovely Lindsay is 30 today. To celebrate, Amelia, Kristin and I threw her a simple surprise party last week.
We rented out a room at our community center and I have to admit, I was blown away by the beauty of the space. Floor to ceiling windows (overlooking the river in the daylight), hardwood floors + exposed beam ceilings made the need for decorating minimal.
We supplied some of Lindsay's favorite snack foods + drinks, potted little plants in votives for favors, and gathered photos of Lindsay throughout the years to use in creating the large number "30" on the wall (which was inspired by this image from Martha).
I much prefer simple parties with a few special elements to over the top shindigs. And I'm pretty sure Lindsay does too. Happy Birthday, dear friend.
