Reese Witherspoon’s Birthday Was Tea, Dessert & All Things Pretty!

On Wednesday, 22nd March, Legally Blonde star Reese Witherspoon rang in her 41st birthday with her girl squad and one fancy tea party at Hotel Bel Air, Los Angeles. The gathering was attended by a close group of friends including Molly Simmons and Shannon Rotenberg.

“All the ladies were seated in a private section of the patio for afternoon tea and dessert,” our source told E! News. “There were beautiful fruit trays, pastries and Sprinkles cupcakes courtesy of Reese’s friend Candace Nelson”, they said, adding that “Everyone celebrated Reese, toasting her with glasses of rosé and singing Happy Birthday.”

The birthday celebrations were followed by an “afternoon of treatments” at the hotel’s La Prairie Spa. Witherspoon stayed until the early evening and eventually left “with extra birthday cake and a beautiful rose flower arrangements from the table.”

Speaking of birthday cake, have you seen what a gorgeous baked specimen the actress celebrated with? Witherspoon’s friend Ava Phillippe posted a picture of the birthday girl staring dreamily at a super sparkly cake, which the latter even reposted with the caption “On top of the world from all of your sweet birthday wishes!” Well, anyone would feel on top of the world with a cake (and spsrkly candles) like that!
