Selena Gomez helped throw her BFF a beautiful birthday party!

The 26-year-old "Birthday" singer and her group of friends gathered together on Thursday to celebrate their pal Raquelle Stevens' special day. For the bash, Selena, Simi Khadra, Haze Khadra, Ashley CookZahra Ayub and Caroline Franklin decorated with pink balloons, including lettered balloons that spelled Raquelle's name. According to posts on social media, the pals also got the birthday girl a sunshine cake, which she declared "the best" on her Instagram.

"Best friends in the world," Raquelle captioned a group photo. "Thank you for throwing me such a beautiful party!"

Selena has been close pals with Raquelle for quite some time now. Over the summer, Selena, Raquelle, Ashley and their recently-married pal Courtney Lopez got matching "4" tattoos.
