Hey guys!
So my birthday is officially in less than a week. What. I honestly cannot believe it! I'll be turning 18 and I seriously feel like I'm still 12 - time is flying by! 
Since my birthday falls on a Tuesday this year (April 8th) I'm having a party at my house for my family and our close family friends this Sunday. I'm super excited! I love decorating, so I've been on Pinterest looking up ideas, and I thought I would share with you guys what I'm thinking of doing!

I'm going to stay with a pastel color scheme with gold accents because it's so pretty and elegant! I really love this picture because it's basically how I want everything to look haha. I don't actually know what my cake will look like though, because my parents own a bakery and they are surprising me!

 I really love the little pom-pom things made out of tissue paper. We got some to hang around everywhere and I think they'll look really cute!

We are also going to have these picture balloons floating around! I think it's such a great way to have tons of photos from my life displayed, but in a different way from the traditional framed ones. And my family loves looking at photos so I'll have to throw in some funny and embarrassing ones haha.

 I think for entry ways these would be cute, possibly a combination of the two? But I think I might have too many animals for this to actually stay for the whole day...

We're going to be using both of these ideas; I think they are both so pretty and will look really great! We got gold floating candles since I want to have gold accents everywhere, and I absolutely love flowers so it'll be the best of both worlds since I'm obsessed with candles as well!

 I think we might do this to our french doors that go out to our porch (of course with an 18 hehe) since we have so many pictures. I think it'll look really cute! Although, as my dad pointed out, it'll look like an 81 when you're outside haha!

 I don't know if we'll actually do this, but it's such a cute way to add even more gold accents! The sparkles might get a bit messy so we may skip this, especially since it'll be a lot of effort for something that we'll just throw away. And my little boy cousins probably won't appreciate having gold hands. Something like this would be so cute for a wedding, though!

Well that's what I have so far! My mom and I went and got some decorations yesterday, which makes me even more excited! I can't wait to put everything up and see how it all turns out (: I am definitely going to do a post all about it once everything is ready!

How do you like to decorate for parties?
