It's pretty much common knowledge that being in Taylor Swift's squad comes with serious perks, one of them being an invitation to her Rhode Island beach house for an insane July 4th bash. This party for the ages had everything: a bouncy waterslide, photo shoots in the ocean, fireworks, and—oh yeah—a celebration for two of her closest friends' relationships.

Swift used the party as an opportunity to honor her childhood BFF Abigail Anderson's recent engagement to her longtime boyfriend Matt Lucier, as well as Ed Sheeran's one-year anniversary with girlfriend Cherry Seaborn. Naturally, she even hung banners reading, "Abigail and Matt Engaged!" and "Happy 1st Ed-Iver-Cherry!" Sheeran has been on a social media hiatus this past year, so fans were very excited to see him in the background of the photo, kissing his girlfriend. In the caption, Anderson referred to the smooch as "the photobomb of the year."
Will Taylor Swift Be a Maid of Honor Again?
Also at the party? A giant stuffed teddy bear, matching swimsuits, charades, and what looked like an insanely fun jam session. Clearly, there's nothing Tay won't do to make her friends feel loved—for Anderson's 25th birthday, she even brought in the lead singer of her bestie's favorite band, Dashboard Confessional.
Taylor's new boyfriend Tom Hiddleston was feeling the love over the weekend, too, and made an appearance sporting an "I Love T.S." tank top and a temporary heart tattoo with a "T" drawn in the middle.
Hiddleston posed for a photo with Swift on his lap, sitting next to Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively, as well as Britany LaManna (nee Maack) and her husband Benjamin LaManna—the same couple for whom Taylor served as a maid of honor.
