Selena Gomez turned the big 2-5 yesterday, and while some celebs opt to have big parties out, Gomez had a much more intimate though very Instagram-friendly affair. She and her friends had a little house party in L.A. There was "Fetish" decor by Petra Collins, balloons, cake, and several gifts, as Gomez documented on her Insta late last night:
The whole thing seemed to be a day-long surprise. Gomez's assistant Theresa Mingus shared some of the set up on her Instagram story, along with the fact this all started at 8 a.m.:
Gomez herself posted several aspirational Instagram stories of her polaroids and cakes. They're exactly how you'd want your own party to look on Insta:

She also did an Instagram live session to thank everyone for the birthday love and share her birthday gifts (vinyl records and a dreamcatcher among them.) "This is going to be a big year," she said. Her boyfriend The Weeknd, who played his last European show in Paris that night, wasn't there…yet. "Abel [Tesfaye, the Weeknd's real name]'s on his way," Gomez told everyone.
Her friends then teased her, and her reaction was just what you'd expect from the girl who wants you to know she has a boyfriend because she's just that smitten:
Tesfaye confirmed his status on his own Instagram story earlier that night. (The flight from Paris to Los Angeles, by the way, is 11.5 hours.)
