Hey guys! So as you know my 27th birthday on October 5th. I decided to celebrate the occasion at 1230 DC (African Fusion Restaurant & Champagne Lounge)
I went attended 1230’s new menu launch with Raro Lae back in July. Check out my recap post (here).
I really enjoyed their food when I went, so I knew it would be a perfect place to have my birthday dinner.
The restaurant allowed me to create my own personalized menu. I created the graphics for my menu and wanted it to match the fabric of my outfit. All Things Ankara is a lifestyle man! (lol)
My birthday dinner menu included:
- Appetizers: Beef Suya & Jerk Wings
- Entree: Jollof Rice with Meat or Fish & Spicy Plantains & Waakye with Meat or Fish & Spicy Plantains
- Desert: Vanilla Ice Cream, Chocolate Ice Cream & Strawberry Ice Cream
For my entree, I went with the Beef Suya.
I had Jollof Rice, Stewed Beef and Plantains for my entree.
I went with the chocolate ice cream for my dessert.
I really wanted to Plantain Sorbet for dessert, but the person who usually makes it for the restaurant wasn’t available that weekend.
My cake was made by Itoya Ehikhamenor, the founder of Zezi Cakes (@zezicakes).
My cake was super cute and went so well with my outfit!
Apologies for not getting close up pictures of my nails.
The pink eyeliner was my favorite part about my makeup.
What lace? You can’t tell me my lace front wig wasn’t laid. Alot of people thought it was actual hair.
Shout out to my family and friends for coming out to the dinner. I had so much fun!
I wasn’t satisfied with the pictures I took at my birthday dinner. So the following week, I took more pictures lol. My make up for these last set of pictures was by (@itsflappjack).
My suit is by me of course via the Nikki Billie Jean Shop (@shopnikkibilliejean) – Available for Purchase (here)
