Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me ... happy birthday to me!
30 years later and I finally get the birthday party I've always wanted! Growing up, my birthday celebrations were small and only included family members - all 5 of them. I never got a sweet 16, nothing to celebrate me being an adult at 18, and I don't even remember what I did for my 21st. Wait, was it Dave & Busters?
Regardless of whatever I did in the past, this birthday party that I threw a week earlier was hands down the best celebration of all celebrations. Why? Because the DJ's were my best friend and my boyfriend, I got to work with bakers for custom pastries, and I only invited the people who mattered to me. On top of all that, the location of choice had the most gorgeous night view of Downtown Los Angeles.
All the above wouldn't have been possible though without Peerspace. If that name rings a bell, then that means you've read this post about them before. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, click here.
For this special occasion, I didn't trust anyone but Peerspace to locate a venue that would fit all my needs. With all the available options on their website, I was able to find a spot and book it as soon as I finished a walk thru. It was such an easy and smooth process from beginning to end.
I decided to pick a venue that was privately secure and this rooftop penthouse had all the vibes I was going for, including an open bar. There were some minor moving of furniture and discussions leading up to the party day with the host of the space (Allison) and I truly appreciate how communicative she was. Allison made sure everything ran smoothly the night of and lent a helping hand without hesitation during set-up. The guests loved the space as much as I did, which was great to hear.
My party was a week earlier than on birthday, as I had to celebrate with my friends in LA before I headed off to Hawaii for my birthday trip. It was such a great way to kick things off and hype up the big 3-0 that I've been dreading.
Peerspace truly made my birthday one to remember and one I'll always look back on. In addition to event venues, Peerspace also offers locations for photoshoots and videos so make sure to throughly check them out!
Thank you to all my friends and family for coming out and partying with me. I love you all!
