Blake Lively’s 30th Birthday Was Sweet 16–Themed...and Totally Awesome
It’s official: Blake Lively is 30, flirty and thriving. Okay so maybe she’s only flirty with her hubby Ryan Reynolds, but Lively celebrated her birthday on Sunday with a perfect 16-going-on-30 fête and documented it all on Instagram.
The Shallows star rung in her Dirty 30 with a small group dinner complete with several fanciful cakes, balloons and wand props. Lively shared a photo of her posing with six friends, including her A Simple Favor costar Anna Kendrick, and jokingly captioned it, “My super sweet 16. ...but like 14 years late.”
In another photo, Lively posed with a collection of gold letter balloons and jewelry gifted to her by her sister Robyn Lively and friend Jacquie Aiche, respectively. She captioned the cute selfie, “Ummm. Thank you [Jacquie Aiche] holy cow!! (And thank you sis [Robyn Lively] for the balloons!) I’m totally gonna lie and tell everyone I’m turning 30 every week.” Same.
Feeling the love of her family and friends, Lively Photoshopped some of her gifts onto a photo of her smiling. She wrote, “Last gratuitous bday post: Thank you to everyone who sent me treats and made my day SO SPECIAL!!! Love you all. And to all my friends who didn’t, you’re dead to me.”
Reynolds, who was not at the dinner, took Lively’s caption to heart and posted a cutoff photo of them in sarcastic retaliation. He captioned the post, “Happy Birthday to my amazing wife.”
Cheers to Blake and her silly hubby. May your 30s bring plenty more giggles...and cake.
