Taylor Swift has shared photos from her 30th birthday celebrations, which she described as “the most aggressive holiday party known to womankind”.

On Friday, the “Lover” singer organised a festive birthday get-together at the Oscar Wilde restaurant in New York City, where she celebrated the milestone with a number of celebrity friends.

Swift documented the evening with a series of Instagram posts, sharing some of the highlights of the night with her 124m followers.

Among the guests in attendance were singers Halsey and Camila Cabello, actors Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, Queer Eye stars Antoni Porowski and Jonathan Van Ness and supermodel Gigi Hadid.

Alongside a photo of her posing in a Christmas-themed photo booth with her A-list friends, Swift wrote: “Honestly spending my 30th with the fans who have made my life what it is at jingle ball, then throwing the most aggressive holiday party known to womankind.

“I just…seriously feel so lucky for you all and will spend forever trying to find ways to say thank you. *cries in Christmas tree*.”

The Cats star also shared another gallery of photos from inside the photo booth, writing, “Happy birthday but make it Santa”, while Porowski posted an image to his own social media account with the caption: “30 THIR-TAY 30.”

Later in the night, Swift was surprised with a birthday cake which featured layers of roses made from icing and life-like decorations of her beloved pet cats Olivia, Meredith, and Benjamin.

“Fur real guys this was my cake ” Swift captioned a close-up picture of herself posing with the sweet treat.

Earlier in the evening, the “Me!” singer was presented with a large birthday cake at the Jingle Bell Ball by radio host, Elvis Duran.

The three-tier cake was decorated in purple and white icing and read “Happy Birthday Taylor”.

“You have to eat the whole thing,” Duran joked in a video captured by a fan in attendance. “Happy birthday!”

“Thank you so much!” Swift replied, before the audience sang “Happy Birthday” to the star.
