Exclusive: Ashley Tisdale Shares Her Boho-Chic Birthday Party

After years of having others plan her birthday party, former Disney Channel star Ashley Tisdale, 31, decided it was time to take matters into her own hands. Now married and the owner of a beautiful Los Angeles home, the actress wanted to use her backyard as the backdrop for her summer birthday bash. The theme: a bohemian backyard dinner complete with a henna artist, a flower-crown station, and a dairy-free menu to impress. 

After browsing Pinterest for endless boho-chic inspiration, she called on the expertise of her wedding planner, Lisa Vorce, to bring her vision to life. With a strong team behind the event to look over every detail, Tisdale was able to focus on what mattered most: her close friends and guests. We chatted with the actress and her event planner to get every last detail of the event. Take notes—these hostesses are a treasure trove of entertaining tips.
