Bookish Birthday Bash

I have a theory that being in your 30s is awesome. 3 is my favorite number, so I can only assume that a whole decade of 3 is just about the coolest decade ever. And this Wordy Thirty birthday party is just adding more proof.

The hosts used literary references for the food and drink served–from Turkish Delight (The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe) to fried green tomatoes (Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe) to the Vesper martini (Casino Royale). Pages from books and Scrabble pieces went toward decorations. What a fun idea!

I’m a sucker for costumes, so I’m probably be tempted to ask guests to dress up as their favorite authors or literary characters. If it’s your birthday, they have to agree, right?

      Good question! I’ve been Hester Prynne for Halloween before (add a scarlet A to a black dress and you’re done). I’d probably go with Weetzie Bat (sparkles and punk), Anne Shirley (puffed sleeves), or Moby Dick (whales are awesome).
