My Sweet17 Birthday Dinner

IMG_0471

My 17th birthday was on July 30th, but since it was during Eid holiday, I celebrated it on August 9th.
I honestly didn't prepare much about this birthday dinner. I didn't even decide about an exact theme for my birthday, so I just made it to match my dress' color, which was in Pink!
The pink's shade was hot pink. I like it more than baby pink because it shows femininity yet it's not as girly as baby pink. It also symbolizes a 'growth' of pink. I was once 'a baby pink', then on my 17th birthday I turned to be a 'maturer (hot) pink' ;p

From the first, I decided to celebrate my birthday with just a dinner and some simple funny games with my close friends, family, and relatives. I didn't want to make a too big party simply because I wanted it to make more meaningful with the people I feel comfortable with. I also didn't want to throw too much money only within a night too! Hehehe. But that doesn't mean I hate big parties, I enjoy those too but not for my own party ;D.

For those who asked, my dress is from Peggy Hartanto (I bought it at Galleries Lafayette, Pacific Place), my heels are from Aldo, and my headpiece is from @petitebellebow . I did the make up by myself (I didn't find any make up artist in my city that suits my preference, so I chose to do it myself :D), hair by a local salon in my city. Anndd fyi, for a clarification, my dress is not bolong (perforated?) ! There's a sheer fabric in NUDE colour. I laughed so hard when anons on my ask.fm thought so... lol *insert laugh-cry emoji here*

I made those heart-shaped cut outs together with my mom and my dad a few days before the d-day :'>. I didn't use EO by the way. It's just a simple party which didn't need help from eo at all.

My juniors at school who are also my close friends helped me to become the guest receptionists . Their dresscode was floral! So pretty!
