For consummate hostess Pandora Vanderpump Sabo, a party typically goes something like this: There's a gorgeous table set with a jeweled runner, and some kind of floral arrangement bursting with pink blossoms. There's a specialty cocktail — with a golden straw, if you don't mind — and a cake that's made to be shown off on Instagram. And of course, there are lots of happy party guests. But when Pandora's birthday rolled around amid self-quarantine on May 7 this year, she put a twist on tradition.
In an Instagram post that showed her cuddling a fluffy white dog as a little girl, the Vanderpump Rules cocktail expert wrote: "Obviously not much has changed." (Have you met Pandora's current pooch, the snow-white Darling?) She added: "Celebrating my birthday today .. a bit different this year ... I hope we can all be together again soon!"
As she showed on Instagram Stories, Pandora's slightly adjusted celebration included a Zoom call with her loved ones. Clutching a flute of bubbling pink champagne, the birthday girl had a virtual toast this year. The pink flowers were still in place, though: Pandora also showed a springy arrangement that a friend had sent her way. And there was one more gift to show that some things never change: The proud mama's love for her dog was immortalized in a painted portrait of Darling.
Keep scrolling to see inside the celebration. And when you have a moment, do pour something pink in celebration of the birthday girl.
