Dad’s 70th Birthday + Rent The Runway

It’s Friday, YAY! I’m still in the best mood ever after getting to spend time with family last week and celebrating my Dad’s 70th birthday! If you are following me on snapchat (roselyn_m) you see how cute they all are. We are a very close knit family and I love them all so very much! Every second with them is the best time. 28 days until I’m with them again to celebrate my niece’s high school graduation, but who’s counting right?! 🙂

Okay, I’ll tell you guys more about Dad’s special party in a minute, but let’s talk about this amazing Yoana Baraschi shift dress from Rent the Runway that I wore to his celebration! **Special shout out to my nephew snapping these pictures of me before the party! 🙂

Have you guys used Rent the Runway before? I’ve actually heard both good and bad things about the service prior to me using them, but when the opportunity came up to work with them I thought I should experience them myself so that I can share my feedback with you all. You know what? It was great! For those of you who are not familiar with their service, Rent the Runway is a site that offers beautiful designer clothing and accessories for you to rent. Think about it like having a super fabulous girlfriend that has a dream closet filled with the most amazing designer wear for you to borrow. No more having to spend so much money on a dress that you will only wear once to a party or wedding. Reality is that when I shop I am very aware of price tags and conscious of how much I spend, but when it comes to a formal gala or wedding I definitely want to splurge on something more formal. Rent the Runway allows me to wear that designer dress that I would never pay full retail price for and chances are I’d also never wear it again. All you have to do is select the dates you need your items and pick your size. Also, they will send you a second size for FREE just in case you are in between sizes and we all know depending on the brand, everything fits differently. You receive your items, you wear it fabulously to your event and then you return it with the packaging and label provided by RTR. Simple right? Check them out here for your next gala.

Now onto my Dad’s party! You know what makes me so happy? Seeing my family and loved ones happy? I mean look at these pictures below guys! It just makes me smile!

My Dad had 176 of our family and his closest friends there. He had some special song and dance performances for him, the DJ and photographer were phenomenal and just being with all of my family and my parent’s friends topped the whole thing off. Dad was so happy and so grateful and really that’s all that matters. Oh and he had 4 different flavor cakes because if you hated everything else about a party at least you’ll remember the cake was good, LOL!

Below are more pics of my sweet family! Every single one of us had a hand at ensuring the party went as planned! My oldest brother and SIL put together the best video montage, my other brother and sister ran the guest check in table, my nieces helped with setting up of the cake table and programs and even the little guys helped ensure all the table numbers were placed perfectly on every table. And my nephew did the opening prayer. We all made sure Papa knew how special he is! If you need a party committee to work your next event, call us. 🙂


Oh and if you haven’t already, you have to start following me on snacpchat just so you can see the pictures I was scrolling through from the party. The photographer caught the most unattractive facial expressions of me. They were hilarious and definitely not blog worthy, haha! But if you hurry I’m sure you can still catch them on my snaps! #notcute

Happy Friday loves! I hope you all had a great week!

I would love to hear if you plan on trying Rent the Runway or if you have I wanna hear if your experience was good or bad!

Thanks for reading loves!

xo, Roselyn
