In a star-studded party held in her own home, Taylor Swift celebrated her 25th birthday surrounded by her dearest friends in the music and entertainment industry.
On Friday, Dec. 12, 2014, Swift was at the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball concert at the Madison Square Garden in New York. Hours later, Swift announced to the audience of her celebrating her 25th birthday, saying, “I think I've officially celebrated my birthday with you tonight. I'm 25 years old, New York City.”
After the concert, Swift went home to her Tribeca apartment to prepare for her birthday bash. Prior to her arrival, her place was already decorated with gold and silver balloons. A source for Us Weekly reports of a massive food delivery in the apartment, including Blue Moon and Stella beers, a big lot of Whole Foods bags, around eight bags of Japanese food and 20 pizza boxes.
Later, vans and limos started arriving in the venue and coming out of them were Swift’s invited friends, some of which were in the concert with her. Included in the list are Ansel Elgort, Beyoncé and husband Jay Z, Charli XCX, Chrissy Teigen, Emma Roberts, Justin Timberlake, Jaime King, Karlie Kloss, Kelly Osbourne, Kyle Newman, Nick Jonas and girlfriend Olivia Culpo, Sam Smith and many more.
According to HollywoodLife.com, Swift’s best friend Selena Gomez was also able to arrive to the party right on time, despite having to fly from the west coast. Gomez even had her nails painted with “S” for Selena and “T” for Taylor in the name of their friendship.
Though Lena Dunham was unable to come to her friend’s party, she was able to send her a gift of a necklace. It has a gold chain and a pendant with a picture of a white cat closely resembling Swift’s cat, Olivia Benson.
As the party went on, Swift and her guests flooded Instagram with many pictures of the event. She also posted a group photo of her and all her friends, captioning it with “So this is being 25 … #WHAT #bestbirthdayEVER”.
