Take a Peek Inside Blake Lively's Intimate 30th Birthday Party

Updated 08/30/17

Blake Lively may be an incredibly inspiring mother of two and a glamorous Hollywood superstar who manages to look stunning regardless of whether she's on the red carpet or running errands. But believe it or not, she opted for a decidedly laid-back approach to celebrating another year around the sun. The actress gave fans a peek into her intimate 30th birthday dinner, which she dutifully documented on Instagram.

Fellow actress Anna Kendrick and a handful of other close friends joined the outspoken star for her (very) belated "super sweet 16" party, which included wine, a decadent cake, and some photoshopped desserts. Lively, who's known for her cheeky sense of humor, ended her final "gratuitous birthday post" by thanking her pals who attended the soirée and jokingly added, "and to all my friends who didn't, you're dead to me." Although husband Ryan Reynolds didn't join in on the party, the actor—who also has a silly side—did pay tribute to his wife on Instagram with a grainy photo of himself (and about a quarter of Lively's face).
