birthday message wall

The Man and I threw a huge joint 30th slash housewarming on the weekend. In keeping with the era of our new home it was in a mid-century theme so we had some seriously cool Mad Men inspired fashions.

In all the prep/hosting frenzy I didn’t take a single photo (bad blogger) but my brother-in-law took a bunch so hopefully I’ll be able to share some soon because it was a pretty rad party.

We were originally hoping to have the lounge painted in time for the party but with the kitchen makeover, office makeover and our Hawaii trip we realised it was not going to happen. Instead, The Man suggested we embrace our in-progress-ness (totally a word) and use the de-wallpapered but unpainted walls as a message board for the party. We commissioned our very artistic sister-in-law-to-be to draw a giant ’30’ design and we got some lovely/funny messages by the end of the night.

The idea is we’ll paint over it and our well wishes will become part of the house. Elsewhere on the wall someone drew some balls (seriouslyareyoutwelveyearsold) so we’ll have to get onto the painting sooner rather than later. I don’t think ‘Public toilet chic’ is going to take off.
