{PARTY} Egan's 30th

My sisters and I went home to Seattle to celebrate our sister's 3oth birthday. It was just us and our parents and we had such a great trip. One of the nights we had dinner party to celebrate the big birthday.

The birthday girl:

I had my sister Annie make the favors. She picked pictures of Egan over the years and printed them in black and white. The boxes were filled with a variety of candy from our favorite confectionery in Seattle.

The table setting... We used some of my parents dinnerware. Those goblets are always my favorite to use. For place cards I painted the initial of each person on a rock.
My sister Jane had these napkins embroidered with the phrase "Everyday I'm Hustlin." It is Egan's motto after all. She has a poster hanging in her house and it just perfectly describes her. She gets it done! Gives her best in everything she does...work, social, religion, hobbies. A fitting theme for such a gal.

There is something about a modern saying like that being embroidered on a napkin that gives the whole thing some humor.

We ate dinner in my parents backyard, one of my favorite places to be.
I made this little crown for the birthday girl to wear.

My sister Jen made up a questionnaire: Who knows Egan Best? I loved seeing what questions we answered the same and which we answered different. Dream male athlete or movie star? Federer duh!

more party goodness to come...


  1. That was a dreamy evening. The details were incredible. I am THE luckiest.

  2. so cute! you girls always go the extra mile for each other. sisters are the best.

  3. My gosh you girls know how to throw a party!! It makes me want to have a team of beautiful, creative and inspired sisters... Egs deserves every bit of it! Happy birthday.

  4. I love it! You girls are incredible partiers and definitely do backyard party with style!! Those napkins are awesome, too. There really is something about using cloth napkins, embroidery and "Every Day I'm Hustlin'" in the same sentence that is fun for sure.
