So I am sure if you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat you probably have been bombarded with my posts about my birthday! I am absolutely shameless when it comes to my birthday cuz you know what? I LOVE THIS DAY! I wait for this every year and love celebrating and just love everything about birthdays and that's why the excitement!
I thought I share everything to do with my party, outfits and just everything - so let's start with what I did. I celebrated my birthday a day prior on the 24th February with a sundowner party. I always knew I wanted to do an outdoor birthday with the dress code being White & Gold (love that combination). So I booked the garden area at Movenpick JBR as it was just the perfect size and location.
PS I have hyperlinked all the accounts in purple in case you need more info xx
Dolling up for the day
For the outfit, I bought a white dress from Coast from Mirdiff City Center. Being a plus size blogger in Dubai, TBH I was not sure if Coast would fit me, although they go up to size 18 - their fabrics aren't always very flexible. Anyway I found the dress and it fit - so yay!
Just a day before the party I decided to get my nails done from Ashwina Salon in Bur Dubai. TO be honest, I go to them frequently for my hair but this was the first time I try their Nail Art and I kid you not, I was so happy with the result! Ton was my manicurist and she did a fab job! Look at the image below
Cost: AED 70 for manicure + AED 10 onwards per nail
For my hair on the day of the event I went to one of my favorite hairstylists - Asma at Dollhouse Dubai. I always get beach waves done from her as I think she is a magician with the curling iron and always does a fab job! I love her
At the party
In terms of decor, I didn't do much. I just had balloons that said Happy Birthday Niggi - but obviously the weather was not in my favor, so they barely stayed the way I wanted them to
For entertainment, I obviously had a DJ. I hired DJ Gautam because I think he is amazing at what he does and I love how he entertains the crowd with his great choice in music !
I also had Glitterbox UAE at my birthday to add a little sparkle to everyone! Honestly, I know its just glitter but I love their concept and their style! I think you can never go wrong with glitter!
I think one of the most fun things at the party were the props and the photo frame sent by Posh Papier - they specialize in creating custom stationery for weddings, events, birthdays, parties etc. I loved how on point the props and the photo frame were and of great quality. Have a look at the pictures
I ordered my cake from Sugaholic Bakeshop who are known to literally bring any design to life and that is exactly what they did! I sent them a picture and they created just that! Needless to say, the cake tasted great! The custom made topper on the cake is made by Posh Papier again - Isn't their work great?
And that is it! Hope you enjoyed reading this post xx Oh! AND JUST A BIG FAT MASSIVE LOVABLE THANK YOU TO ALL OF YOU who wished me, sent me messages and all the love! You have no idea what it means to me <3
