A Starry Seafoam Birthday

Starry Seafoam Birthday

My birthday is tomorrow, which kind of blows my mind! I actually sort of forgot it was so close, until last week at Disneyland when a very nice cast member asked me when my birthday was. To my surprise, I ended up with a birthday pin and a phone call from Goofy. So it's time for my yearly dreamed-up birthday party inspiration board. I don't remember the last time I had an actual birthday party, with invitations and people coming over, but I like creating these imaginary celebrations. Of course I do get fireworks, which I'm not particularly crazy over, but as I always hear whenever I tell people my birth date, not many people get fireworks on their birthdays! The sea foamy and gold palette was inspired by a photo by Jose Villa & Enjoy.

I would love to have Emily Martin's signed book and print set, and I'm still dreaming of an Instax Mini. No wish list of mine would be complete without something from Giant Dwarf! I have wanted something by Danny Brito for years, and I especially love his cameo brooches because there are so many of his wonderful illustrations to choose from.

My real birthday present was a slightly early one: the iPhone I got on Sunday! It's so fancy, I can barely believe I actually have one. Now I'm on the lookout for a nice case for it. I think this one is so cute! There are so many choices, I don't know how I'm going to decide on one.

For those of you in the States, I hope you have a great Independence Day, and for my friends outside the US, have fun on my birthday, hehe!


  1. Ahhhh What perfect perfect wishes!! I adore every last thing!! REALLY!! EVERYTHING! I'm crazy for stars...glittery ones! Are you familiar with Wendy Addison? She is THE german Glass glitter Queen! I first fell in love with her star crowns and wands ..oh gosh..about 11 yrs ago or so. I have quite a few of her pieces. And the cool thing about the glass glitter..it tarnishes over time. Such a cool patina! I was thrilled to meet her at the Where Women Cook magazine launch in NYC a year or so ago...and again when we taught at The Creative Connection last year. She RULES! She has the most amazing glitter star chandeliers! I know you'd LOVE them!

    I too waaaannnt....neeeed an Instax mini!! Hoping soon! :)

    Wishing you a very very Happy Birthday!! Have ots of FUN! ...geez..such a coool Bday!! July 4th!! LOVE that!!

    what a pretty set i love that color

  8. Happy Birthday! I'd love fireworks on mine, but I wouldn't want to put up with everyone always having holiday plans on my birthday; doesn't seem worth it. I already get annoyed with Father's Day, which falls very close to/sometimes on my birthday. Hope you do something special!

  9. belated happy happy birthday!

  10. Danielle! I hope you had a truly incredible birthday, you have definitely become one of my favorite bloggers and I am so happy to have been able to "meet" you!

    Meanwhile, how perfect is your taste - GUH!? Ever since I've seen you rocking the star headband(?) I've been wanting one!

  11. Happy belated birthday! I hope you had a great day. I'm just catching up on my blog reading and yours was one of my first stops. :) I have an Instax mini and it's great but I've not used it much because I keep forgetting! Oops.
