a birthday with yellow pinwheels

This weekend was one of those weekends I just didn't want to end. I've been so focused on school and work obligations that I haven't had much time to do what I want (because we all know studying is not what I wan't to be doing). So as if it was fate, a trip for work was cancelled and one of my closest friends from college was in town for a work conference and her birthday. I'd like to think it was the universe's way of telling me to slow down, drink some champagne and enjoy some cupcakes which I gladly obliged. 

I was happy to host a few friends for the afternoon but lawd knows I don't have the time (or the creativity really) to pull something together of Pinterest standards. I mean does anyone else feel the pressure to have a perfectly curated party nowadays? Thanks a lot, Pinterset. Even if I had the time, I definitely do not have the DIY skills.  So what is a working professional caving to Pinterest/sociatal demands to do? Have someone else do it! Which is why when I discovered Yellow Pinwheels I thought, hey ,these girls are on to something. Here's the gist: Yellow Pinwheels puts together party packages that include everything you could need (and didn't even realize you need) for a party. The packages come in two sizes (Straight Up and With a Twist) and includes everything from plates to cupcake liners to table clothes to bakers twine to washi tape to pom poms to straws all depending on the package you select. The packages are organized by theme or you can curate your own through their a la carte options. I'm so grateful Yellow Pinwheels sent me a package for Trisha's birthday because it was a super easy way to make the day all the more special. In fact, it was so easy, I wan't to throw little champagne parties for everything now. Real Housewives finale party? Done. The Bachelor premiere? Yep. It's Sunday and we've got chilled champagne? Sure, let's celebrate that too.

Right now, Yellow Pinwheels is offering free shipping on all halloween products with the code HALLOWEEN14. They also always offer free shipping for  Straight Up and With a Twist party packages​ with code​ FREESHIPYPPKG.
