Teresa Giudice's house became party central on May 18 as her friends and family came together to celebrate her birthday.
The Real Housewives of New Jersey cast member kicked off the festivities by nibbling on some celebratory snacks out by her gorgeous pool, according to videos in her Instagram Story. The party then moved inside where everyone sang "Happy Birthday" to Teresa, and she blew out the candles on her blue-and-white cake as her daughters Gia, 19, Gabriella, 15, Milania, 14, and Audriana, 10 stood by her side, Teresa's friend and fellow New Jersey Housewife Jennifer Aydin captured in her Instagram Story.
It wouldn't be a Garden State get-together without a dance party. Partygoers, including Jennifer, busted a move to songs like "It Takes Two" in the kitchen, according to videos in Teresa's makeup artist Priscilla DiStasio's Instagram Story.
Teresa wasn't just feeling the love at her party. She also received several touching birthday messages from the RHONJ crew on her big day.
Though Teresa and Jackie Goldschneider haven't always gotten along, they seem to be in a better place than ever these days. Why, Jackie even has a special surprise up her sleeve for Teresa's birthday this year. "Happy birthday my friend! Trying to find you a nice Jewish man as your gift!" Jackie wrote on Instagram, referencing the type of man Teresa said she is now looking for after her split from Joe Giudice. "Hope you have a great day with your beautiful girls."
Margaret Josephs shared a similar sentiment in her birthday message for Teresa. "Happiest Birthday to the strongest woman I know @teresagiudice! Wishing you only a life filled with peace, love and happiness!!" she gushed on Instagram. "Can’t wait to celebrate, and dance all night, maybe with some cute 'Jewish guys.' Love you lots!!!"
Jennifer called Teresa a "Jersey Strong Doll" in her message to her friend, while Dolores Catania also praised the birthday girl as "one of the strongest women I know." "Proud to not only call you a friend but family!" Dolores wrote on Instagram. "I can’t even count the amazing memories we’ve made over the years. Wishing you the best year ahead, love love you!"
Teresa also got an Instagram shout-out from her longtime friend and RHONJ alum Dina Manzo. "Happy Birthday Queen!! @teresagiudice every year when your birthday rolls around I’m reminded of 2 things...How much we need more recent photos of us together and how much I adore you," Dina shared. "Wishing you a beautiful birthday and a year filled with all that your heart desires. Love you."
Of course, Melissa Gorga wished her "beautiful sister-in-law" a happy birthday. "So many years of sisterhood showing everyone how family pulls through [and] making some amazing memories along the way," she said in a post on Instagram. "Have the best day!"
Teresa's brother, Joe Gorga, pledged to be "#togetherforever" with his sister in his birthday message on Instagram. "Happy birthday to my sister @teresagiudice! We have been through so much together," he wrote. "I am so lucky to have you in my life [and] I love you so much! Hope you have an amazing day!"
Joe Giudice shared a slideshow of photos of Teresa on Instagram in celebration of her birthday. "On your birthday, I thank you for all that you do and all that you are. I hope all your wishes come true today and every day," he wrote in the post. "I am taking the time to let you know how much I appreciate and admire all you do and all you are to so many people especially to our kids! You deserve the world! Have a wonderful day."
Milania also wished her "best friend" a happy birthday on Instagram. "Thank you for helping me through everything, talking to me about all my problems and being the best mother possible," Milania shared in the post. "You don’t look a day over 20 mommy keep being you never change!! I love you to the moon and back mommy I hope your day is as amazing as you are!!"
