My Birthday Toga Party

Another year has come and I am turning a year older is all I kept thinking in my head.  Why do we dread turning another year?  I have a lot to be thankful for and celebrating life and all the blessings we have received should be enough for a celebration.  I decided I wanted to celebrate turning another year, my BIG 3-5.  Yeah, most people don't celebrate 35.  But again, I have a lot to celebrate and I love to throw parties.

Picking a theme was not hard at all since I have been wanting to throw a Toga Party since I can remember.  I talked to my hubby and he was on board and said give some instructions and we will go from there.  I told him to leave it all to me, even though it was my birthday I love to party plan.

First you need food.  I decided to go with grapes, breads, cheese, olives, greek/italian/ceasar salads, etc...
For the decorations.  I used some columns, gold, green, and greenery like ivys in gold pots.  I also used the food and drinks for decor.  I bought wine, all kinds of wine, which by the way no one drank.  They said it looked like decorations so no one touched it.  And my sister in law made me this beautiful cake.
But the most important thing I was most worried about was my outfit-my toga.  I didn't know exactly what I wanted to wear but I did want to look like a goddess.  This is the costume I ended up going with:

I loved it.  It was so comfortable.It even came with the head band that match the toga design as well.

Here are some pics from the party:

We had a blast!  Turning 35 is not that bad.  And throwing a toga party was not hard at all, it was easy.  Everyone had fun, enjoyed all the food, and wore togas!

Have you ever thrown a toga party?
