lina's 25th

i know this post is quite overdue, as my birthday was over a month & a half ago. but here they are! photos from the party i through myself. i designed four photobooth backgrounds, gathered three fuji instax cameras together, & filled three vintage suitcases together with props. to eat was a spread of cheese & fruit. i thought it turned out lovely : ) to see instagram photos, look up #linas25th 




miguel was my chef in the kitchen for the evening & made these caprese bites perfectly.



 photobooth #1 was just a dark sheet & colored paper cranes

 photobooth #2 was a little more involved to make. i tore strips from five different colored bed sheets i got from a thrift store & tied them to rope. it takes longer to tie them all than you'd think.
 photobooth #3 was just a vintage quilt i already had.
 photbooth #4 was probably the neatest looking. i got three vintage doors from a recycling center at the dumps for $1 each. they looked great, complete with a metal keyhole! then they were partly covered with pages from an edgar allan poe book. it gave a great effect.
 then i strung up the instant photos for people to take when they leave the party : )




it seemed like everyone had a good time, but i was so tired afterwards. i am more of a "sit-back-&-watch" kind of gal instead of a "life-of-the-party" gal ;)
