I rarely have birthday parties, but given this was a big milestone I wanted to do something special. I dreamed of having a beautiful dinner for all my close girlfriends who have been there for me and with me along the way. A nice thank you for the memories and laughs.
My only, and I mean only choice for a venue was Black Barn. From the first time I visited, I fell in love with the upscale yet laid back atmosphere. A very rare combination you won’t find anywhere else in New York City. The moment you walk through the big heavy doors, you’re taken out of the city and placed in a beautiful oasis. Especially with the number of private rooms they have available for hosting private parties.
The food is phenomenal as well. You simply cannot go wrong when ordering. Each ingredient is fresh and often bought from the local farmers market. My mouth is salivating just thinking about it. So yes, for my birthday it was Black Barn or Bust. This was the only place I could imagine hosting my friends. Luckily for me and my guest, not only were they happy to have us but were incredibly helpful when setting up the dinner. In a private room, they started the feast with sabering champagne (check out my Instagram), and every type of crafted cocktails you could imagine. Topping it off with a four-course meal everyone is able to enjoy (even the glutton intolerant).
To make the occasion even more phenomenal, I wore a beautiful gold dress by Julie Brown NYC. The beading around the collar and cuff made this a stunning fit for the occasion. Plus, it is so forgiving and comfortable, even after consuming so much delicious food!
