My birthday is next week! October 17th! And I spent alot of time thinking about what I wanted to do for this party like you I also wanted to make this special and I thought aobut going to the beach too! But ultimately I decided to do a house party with a theme that suited my personality then I invited about 40 people (only people I wanted there) and I am just planning from there! Mine is going to be a fantasy birthday! And I am the princess! Yours could be what ever you think that would make you happiest! (By the way I am not the princess most of the time I am the angel and my b/f is the princess but for this...) Costumes all the way!
