Ariana Grande turned 27 on Friday, and like a true Cancer, she celebrated with a beautiful birthday party that could only please the imagination of a sensitive soul.
Her boyfriend, Dalton Gomez, with whom she went Instagram official yesterday, and her close friends threw her a birthday party with a surprise Midsommar (2019) theme. Grande shared snaps from her party, which she hosted for a few friends and family on Friday night.
Here she is in her flower crown:
And here are some of her Midsommar buddies:
It looks like Grande and Gomez got pretty cozy at the party, too:
Although yesterday was the first time we saw Gomez on Grande's Instagram, the two confirmed their relationship in May in Gomez's music video "Stuck With You."
At the end of May, a source told Entertainment Tonight that there's a reason why Grande has kept this relationship quiet, compared to those she's had in the past.
"Ariana has had some hesitation being so public about her relationship with Dalton as she’s seen how that has worn on her past relationships [like with Pete Davidson and Mac Miller]," the source said.
The source added that the two have been in quarantine together and it "has been a great opportunity for them to spend quality time together."
Ariana Grande has had many notable style eras throughout her years atop the pop scene. There was the animal ear phase and the sweatshirt/over-the-knee boots phase, but now she's entered a new era of Ari style: the bra phase.
Lately, she's been leaning on a very simple (but effective) outfit equation. New music video? Bra. Live performance? Bra. Celebrating a birthday? Bra. It's served her well over the years and the most recent instance is no exception.
Over the weekend, the singer celebrated her 27th trip around the sun. She invited friends and family over for an intimate celebration, covered everything in flowers, made out with her new boyfriend Dalton Gomez, and, yes, wore her best bra for the occasion.
Ari debuted what I would qualify as the *ultimate* bday ensemble. She went for an ivory knit bra (which is only $39.99, btw), with a matching mini skirt and a halo of blooms. Of course, Ariana donned her trademark pony and go-to winged liner, but added a festive smattering of floral appliques to her eye look for the occasion.
"My friends and I went with a midsommar theme because help me," she captioned a series of photos featuring herself in a flower crown. (I beg that every reader swipe through the whole Instagram post to witness the totally realistic rendering of Grande if she had been a character in Midsommar.)
Friends and family also wore their own flower crowns. In another Instagram post, Grande included flicks of her brother and mom, Frankie and Joan Grande, posing in their own Midsommar-themed ensembles. She also included some PDA-filled photos featuring her boyfriend, Dalton Gomez.
Her birthday dinner table was also decorated accordingly, with colorful floral centerpieces, white and gold candles, and a white tablecloth.

Grande has stayed busy during quarantine. Most recently, the singer collaborated with Lady Gaga on "Rain on Me," an upbeat dance track that appears on Gaga's Chromatica. Grande also worked with Justin Bieber to produce another track, "Stuck with U," which debuted at the top of Billboard's Hot 100 chart.
Grande was photographed wearing a black sports bra, black leggings, and a leather jacket. Her hair was half up, half down with space buns on top. She completed the look with a matching black mask because coronavirus remains in full swing throughout the country—and especially in Los Angeles.
Gyms remain open in Los Angeles for the time being, while indoor restaurants, bars, and movie theaters no longer are due to the city's recent surge in COVID-19 cases. Gyms have remained closed for months though, having just reopened two weeks ago.
Grande's gym sighting comes days after the singer's 27th birthday. She celebrated with a Midsommar-themed party that her friends and boyfriend Dalton Gomez threw for her at home. "My friends and i went with a midsommar theme because help me," she captioned her Instagram gallery of party photos.
