Who needs hot Hollywood clubs? Taylor Swift‘s birthday bash Saturday was a low-key, homemade affair.

The star celebrated her 19th surrounded by family and friends – including all the members of her band – at her home in Hendersonville, Tenn., the singer’s rep tells PEOPLE exclusively.

Swift, who lives with her parents and younger brother, planned the buffet dinner, which included sushi, mini beef Wellingtons and bacon-wrapped scallops. Two ice cream cakes (one chocolate peppermint, one cookie dough) came from Cold Stone Creamery.

The singer entertained the crowd with a homemade video she made featuring many of her pals. Later, the 40 partygoers battled it out in a ping-pong tournament, won by Swift’s manager. (The “Love Story” singer made the semi-finals.)

The night’s grand finale? S’mores (one of Swift’s faves) cooked up over an outdoor fire pit.
