    It is absolutely right to say so.
    However, I'd prefer to say, ...my daughter's birthday...

    The birthday of my daughter- this is correct, but a little formal, so I agree with the others that 'my daughter's birthday' sounds better.

    My daughter's birthday is far more normal.

    "The birthday of..." sounds very formal.

    So:

    - we celebrated my daughter's birthday last week
    - we celebrated the birthday of the Queen


    Oh, and we really did celebrate my daughter's birthday last week. She is now five


    Regards,

    Mark
