Birds of a Feather


As the years have passed, it’s been harder and harder to get together with some old friends, so when we ate at TGIFriday’s last month, I thought I’d throw in an extra fun celebration – just a little celebration of time and friendship.

We met in 2006, some of us completing in the same pageant, one giving up her Miss Arizona USA title, and somehow our lives overlapped and intertwined which brought us together. Marriage, babies and the like has left us with less time (and let’s face it, energy) to meet up nearly every week like we used to.  Oh savor the youth ladies – go out with your girlfriends for dinner, the bar, group vacations, outings as much as you possibly can!


I decided to go play with the theme of “Birds of a feather, flock together.”  I found stationery from Mara Mi, I picked up on clearance at Aaron Brothers awhile back.


The long feather necklaces were under $3 from Forever 21 (sold out).  Comes in gold or silver.  Another larger option here.


Feather cut outs I found online, a free template by Wedding Chicks I printed on pink cover paper from Paper Source.


Brought along this fun Polaroid camera and printer for the night too! As you can see, it was a hit!

Here is the little flock (minus one who couldn’t make it).


Please pay no mind to our dessert we devoured! Yum yum!  If you have a group of friends who are all close to each other, feel free to take this theme and run with it.

I find the older we get it’s harder to have a group of collective friends who all get along and have individual relationships with each other outside of a group setting so typically friendship groups have formed during younger times (like college and high school), so always cherish the group dynamic because it isn’t easily found!
