For a while I have been concocting this dreamy outdoor birthday dinner. It would require a large backyard or industrial loft space (which I currently am not in possession of), a collection of my favorite people (definitely have those), and hoarding vintage rugs and cushions to use as the main seating (I will gladly work on that). I am thinking this soiree will happen for my 40th birthday in the very distant near future. Everytime I see one of these parties styled for a blog, I mentally categorize it. I can't help it. How perfect would this be on a summer night (cough; June birthday). Who's coming?
