this is me


I’m Becca and I’m inspired by little details, good design and pretty things. I live in the San Francisco Bay Area, spend my days working in package design... and my nights trying to find time to blog while raising a two foot tall hellion named Caitlin.

While planning my wedding, I was so impressed by the resources in the blog community that I was moved to start one of my own. This blog is dedicated to uncovering party details and product ideas for that other special day. You know... the one that comes around every year?

Welcome to Birthday Girl. I hope it inspires you in the celebration of your life.


  1. Well don't you look fantastic!? I must know what is in your glass...

  2. Stop by and see me at Bridal Buzz sometime. We can trade "celebration" ideas. I love your blog, just found it today.

  3. Hi Becca,

  4. Hi Becca! Great blog. I create stationery & gifts (think domino, scrabble tile, and bottlecap jewelry among other things). Would love for you to check me out and/or follow my blog.

  5. Hi Becca,

    I love this! Thanks for sharing. By the way you look fabulous :)

  6. This is a great resource. I love vintage parties. I'll be back for more.

  7. Hi Becca.. Your blog is AWESOMEE.. One of the best party blog I've ever read. I was so inspired by your blog that I make a review on it. Hope you don't mind. I just want to share to the people that I know. Nothing else...

    You can check my review here. I just start doing my blog. So feel free to drop any comments or suggestion. It will be great to learn more from someone like you!!!

  8. Hey Becca - I added your button to my site :)
    Keep up the great work!


  9. Becca,

    This is such a fun idea for a blog. And as I start to think about my daughter's first birthday, well, I'll certainly be coming back!


  10. Great site! It has helped me with my planning. Thank you for your blog ideas.

  11. Hello Becca,

    Allow me to introduce myself. I am Kristin. I live in Salem, VA. I LOVE your blog. I, too, am completely addicted to attention to detail. I have a 5 year old and a set of almost 2 twins. During the planning for my twins 1st birthday I was so into detail that I failed to sleep half the time. The only time I could plan was when my family was asleep. I was averaging between 3-4 hours of sleep a day. I would up getting hives for over 5 weeks due to stress. LOL! I am now planning their Noah's Ark themed party. Any ideas????? I'm thinking the invite wording could say something like "2x2 they're turning 2, Please Join Us for A Party At The Zoo". Finally, I depserately NEED your help. I am also in the middle of planning a bridal shower. I loved the Tifanny Blue and Red colors combined, but the caterer will ONLY let me use either blk or white table clothes. Which color do you think would look best with those two accent colors?
