My SURPRISE Breakfast at Tiffany's Birthday Party

My SURPRISE Breakfast at Tiffany's Birthday Party

It's no secret that I love my birthday. I love anyone's birthday and I especially love planning birthday parties. I don't know what happened this year, I just didn't plan anything for myself. It's not that I wasn't excited about it, I just had such a bash last year I wanted to be more low-key this year. A handful of my friends have January and February birthdays so I offered to host the pregame before heading to DC for the night to celebrate, but as the week went on I realized no one really wanted to go out. I sighed a little bit of disappointment, but understood and told my boyfriend that we should just go out to a nice dinner Saturday night. I had just bought this really nice dress from Urban Outfitters and got a new hair-do and wanted just a night nice. I had no idea what was in store for me when I walked through the door.

To give you a clear picture of the night we need to go back to 7 p.m. when the wild card, our friend Darwin, walked into my apartment while I was in my robe getting ready for dinner. My confused face looked at him and asked him what he was doing here. He told me that he was in the neighborhood and my boyfriend told him to come by to play video games. This might sound odd to readers, but the truth is it's not the first time Darwin has just stopped by and it's not unlike my boyfriend to play video games when we should be getting ready for a nice dinner. So I bought it. All three of us left at the same time, but my boyfriend said he had parked out front of the apartment building in stead of the garage, again, I didn't question it.


After our original plans had changed about five times, my boyfriend and I finally made it to dinner around 9 p.m. I could tell that my boyfriend was in a bit of a rush, but I thought it was because we were going to the movies at 10:45 p.m., that's when I decided that we should skip the movie and have a movie night at home. My boyfriend seemed to calm down after that and we enjoyed our dinner. We ate at Flavio's Italian Restaurant in Georgetown, D.C. The food was so good and the birthday cake that came out had a freaking fire work on top of it, it was awesome.

As we got off the elevator my boyfriend handed me his phone and said have you heard this new song, they say "Michele" in it. Me, being self involved and a glass of champagne in, held the phone up to my ear waiting to hear my name. Can you picture it? As we turned the corner towards the apartment he started to raise his voice, almost yelling like. Again, I was too focused on the phone and just thought to myself "maybe he's a little drunk too and doesn't realize how loud he is." I now know the reason for this was to distract me from the noise coming behind my very own apartment door.

When we walked into the apartment the lights flew on and all my closest friends shouted "Happy Birthday!" I stepped back because I was shock. My first thought was, "how did everyone get in my apartment?" (See earlier note about my boyfriend parking out front of the apartment instead of the garage). Turns out that my boyfriend had left the keys with our friend Darwin who met up with Rocio and Gabe and let everyone into the apartment. Before I saw the rest of the apartment I noticed the cake. This beautiful cake with pearls dripping down the side of it (shout out to Mark's mom for making my favorite funfetti cake with only two-day notice!). As everyone sang "Happy Birthday," I looked up at Rocio and said, "This is like a Tiffany's cake," and she responded, very lovingly I might add, "It's all Tiffany's themed dumbass." That's when I realized it, the balloons, the streamers, the huge wall art and even the bow on Oliver...it was a "Breakfast at Tiffany's" themed birthday party.

Everything was so perfect. As the night went out I pulled my boyfriend aside and said, "I'm having so much fun I don't want to go to DC." I was totally fine if others wanted to go out, but I just wanted to keep partying in my own home with my dog (it's Oliver's birthday too after all). I was ecstatic when most of my friends wanted to stay in too. The single boys went out, which is totally cool hah, but the majority of people stayed until past 3 a.m. We listened to music, took pictures, drank champagne and even had a cake fight. Why did I allow people to throw blue icing in my apartment, no clue, but it was totally worth it.



I was so stunned, I couldn't believe the work everyone had put in and the planning that my boyfriend did to put this all together. I was so touched and honestly am still so happy and feel so loved. Thank you is not enough to express my happiness from that day. I'm still looking through these photos and beaming with excitement. One of the best birthday's ever.

xoxo, Michele
