Photo Diary: My Birthday Hoedown!


To celebrate my birthday this past weekend I hosted a joint-birthday hoedown at a local western-themed bar in Hollywood. Cowboy attire was encouraged and the guests did not disappoint: From ponies-on-a-stick and vintage bandanas to bolo hats and spurs, it was an unforgettable fete and we had the fashions to prove it. All in all, the party was a great success. We had live music provided by our friend’s band, Live Oak Revue, and a wonderful group of friends there to help us celebrate. Today I thought I’d share a few of my favorite moments from the night with you…

Here I am with William and fellow birthday boy, Chad.


William even performed a song with the band…


Here I am with my brother and sister.


And of course, we had a “Giddy Up!” cake.


Last but not least, I closed out the night like a true cowboy and successfully hailed a cab with my pony-on-a-stick :-)


I hope all of you had a lovely weekend! And thank you for the sweet birthday wishes!

    I actually had a PJ party just 2 weeks back :) I totally loved it, by everybody was so relaxed and felt comfortable in their clothes. My roomie and I created a room full of matresses and had another one with a couch and some chairs to relaxe.
    I also colored the tips of my hair (you can see it in my profile) with the dip dye method and I totally loved it.
    Also everybody else really enjoyed themselves and we are all still talking about what a great party it was :)
    I am already thinking about a theme for the next party 😉

    What a fun birthday bash! I’m glad people dressed up. I always have an issue with that whenever I do a theme.

    My 21st Birthday Party’s theme was…. “”The Hills.””

    I made my guests dress up in glitzy glam outfits and asked them to turn to LC and co for inspiration, it was such a fun night (and my friends even mentioned Lauren in my 21st Birthday Speech, it made my night!)

    Last year my birthday was super-hero themed. It was quite fun! My second family dressed as The Incredibles! I went on the line of the unexpected and dressed as Superman; I loved it!

  • Fernanda Webster

    For my 30th, my BFFs threw my a Great Gatsby party to end the 20s. Everyone wore vintage 1920s attire and I took a page out of LC’s book and did a homemade photo booth. Themed parties are so much fun!

    I love the pictures and the way you guys are styled.
    I think this is a great theme with a lot of fun and some great music! I’ve never had a theme party yet but I want to celebrate one day with a twenties girl theme because I love the attitude and the clothes in that time! Feathers, beautiful glittering dresses and all that stuff.

    Hope you had a great evening with many beautiful moments and situations to remember. <3

    I had a Roaring 20’s/Great Gatsby themed party in my backyard. It’s pretty big so I snagged about 7 wrought iron tables and chair sets from the cafe (that my mother conveniently owns), hung lanterns and a set up a dancing tent, played jazz, and my dad even played the bartender for the night! Of course I made everyone dress up, and there were no disappointments! I’ll have to use the hoedown theme sometime!
