The Cake: Sugar Rush. I found them just in time and requested a girly pink and yellow cake with stars, and well, they Completely Got It. Everyone gaped [and drooled] over this mammoth cupcake, and just when we thought we’d found girl power perfection, we cut it open and the inside was a rainbow.


I did plan the details months in advance, but the best part was bringing together my fabulous guests. I’m not a best friend person or a posse person, rather a meet-random-awesome-people-and-go-on-mini-one-on-one-adventures person (surely I’m not the only one in this category?). A pseudo birthday brought these super ladies together; we made like the Avengers and Assembled.

An unplanned perk of the dress code is that now when I mention one friend to another, I can identify them by their costume [“My friend Oli – oh, you know, Cat Woman…”].
