Blake Lively isn’t the type of celebrity to break non-essential travel bans, charter a private jet during the coronavirus pandemic, and fly off to a tropical resort to celebrate her birthday. The Gossip Girl star turned 33 on Tuesday with a low-key (and generally COVID policy-adhering) celebration at home with family and some very special treats.
She shared a series of highlights from the day on her Instagram Story last night. Lively has been quarantining with her husband Ryan Reynolds; their three daughters James, Inez, and Betty; and at least nine additional friends and family members. She revealed on her Instagram Stories that she’s in an “isolation pod” and had a little spa afternoon at her friend Angie Niles’s home.
Here, Lively’s play-by-play of her day: She started with “Birthday highlights,” posting a pic of a trail of ribbons her family (likely children) surprised her with. “Thank you to everyone who made it so special!!! I love you.”
For breakfast, she got a homemade McMuffin “but with allllll the sriracha mayonnaise.”
From there, Lively posted a pic of all the New York City Il Laboratorio del Gelato birthday cake popsicles she treated herself to. “Telling myself I bought so many to support one of my favorite NYC small businesses. But the reasons were mostly selfish,” she quipped.
Lively’s friend Kate Vorhoff bought her a ’90-themed caboodle as a birthday gift. “This is not a dream,” Lively wrote. “[Kate] moved into my brain. I’ve never felt so seen.”
Lively posted a selfie of herself trying to FaceTime jewelry designer Schwartz later in the day, wearing Schwartz and Ofira jewelry. “Earrings, ring, and declined call,” Lively wrote, crediting her jewelers.
From there, Lively got an afternoon of pampering at Niles’ home. “When [Angie] and @MrJustinJohnson make a spa in their living room because they’re creative, caring, isolation pod abiding, hotel amenities hoarding heroes who love me too well,” she wrote.
Lively then showed off the four boxes of Ladurée macarons her friends Samantha and Justin Stone sent her. “When you sent 4 boxes, you seriously don’t think I was going [to] share, right?..” she wrote.
Lively ended her posts with photos of three more gifts: Ross Bread baked goods from her sister Robyn, a necklace with her daughters’ names from jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer, and a High Camp Gardenias candle and flowers.
“Yup. I know. Impossible. More food,” Lively captioned the post with her sister’s gift. “Thank god we have 13 family and friends quarantining with us. [Robyn], thank you for these! It’s the first best thing to you actually being here in person to share them with me.”
“Live footage of me when I got this from [Jennifer Meyer],” Lively captioned the photo of her new necklace.
And for the final post, she wrote, “This smells like if heaven delivered on all things promised. All. at. once.”
There you have it: the highlights of Lively’s 33rd birthday.
