Flashback to My 30th Birthday Party! BRAVO’s The Shahs of Sunset Style



For my dirty thirty, I decided to have a fun, Persian princess PROM themed birthday party!! I was on a BRAVO reality show at the time called “The Shahs of Sunset” and I ran into the old photos today, so I decided to share them. I am 34 years old now, so this was 4 years ago, wow time flies.

Many of you may have caught some of the party on that Bravo Reality Show, The Shahs of Sunset, as the birthday party was the first episode (or maybe it was the second episode) of Season 3.

The party was held at my dear friends Muhammed and Shiva Hadid’s gorgeous home he shares with his beautiful girlfriend Shiva.  There was a 120 person dinner, followed by a party for about 300. The party was planned by the most incredible even planner, Sunny from WhiteLilacInc.  She did a GORGEOUS job!!!

I had never really celebrated my birthday, in fact I had never had any kind of big celebration at all in life up until this point (I didn’t go to my college or law school graduations, I had never been married etc), so I decided to go all out.

I wore 4 different dresses during the party, was voted prom queen (lol), and Reza from Shahs of Sunset was voted prom king!! It was a super fun night, and even though the party may have been a bit much, I had a wonderful time.

The first dress I wore was designed by my dear friend Michael Costello, and he had to sew me in it (crazy!!).  He also made my doggy Coconut a matching dress, she looked SO beautiful!!

All done with the sewing!!!

For the first hour before dinner began, a cocktail reception was held in the backyard with gorgeous Persian classical music played on the violin.

After the reception hour, everyone headed downstairs to the ballroom for dinner.  I changed into my second dress, another couture Michael Costello dress.  This one was all black, and thankfully zipped up lol.

Dinner, dancing, and eating was the next hour and a half!! Oh, and voting for prom court of course 🙂 Food was provided by Persia Inc by Besharati (949-633-9771 or SBesharati@persia-inc.com) and the cake by A Wish and a Whisk (www.awishandawhisk.com).

When dinner was coming to an end, I changed into my third dress of the evening to announce who had won prom court (we did queen, king, best dressed, class clown, and most eligible bachelor/bachelorette).  This dress is from a Turkish designer and I got it at a store in LA called “Hermz LA”. Reza won prom king!!!! It was really close between Reza and Mike.

Lastly, the party ended where it began, outside in the backyard with drinks under the stars. My fourth dress was also from the LA based store, Hermz LA, and was a fun short dress with a long detachable skirt.

Overall, my birthday was a lot of fun, and I feel so lucky to have been able to celebrate it in such a glamorous way with everyone that I love.
