A Successful Birthday, THANK YOU ForYourParty.com
July 18, 2014 | food hall + haul, interior alchemy, pretty this + that, the fun piece

We are honored to be featured on ForYourParty blog. When we were approached by the birthday boy's wife to plan a Surprise 40th Celebration for her husband, we couldn't wait to get the party started. 

Our consultation with the host provided an opportunity to hone Michele's vision for the celebration.  After taking note of the Guest of Honor's personal preferences we had our Theme: Tapas, Sangria & Salsa

The venue, a modern loft-style apartment was a beautiful setting for the evening.  We styled the white space with layers of festive red + gold. We anchored the space with a sleek communal table filled with a range of interesting and unique tapas prepared by Brooklyn based Mamma Duchess.

Guests mingled as they snacked on these freshly prepared tapas and sipped both sangria and hand-muddled mojitos.

Little details make a Big impact as we turned to foryourparty.com to design a bit of  fun. We loved the chevron hand stamped wooden forks. The personalized imprinted drink stirrers made for a festive vibe. We tied the party theme and colors together with the personalized napkins. 

The oversized mylar balloons made up our photobooth backdrop. Guests snapped + snapped again.  FUN.

To complete the theme, a dance instructor taught guests THE SALSA, 

Sweet dessert combined the flavors of Brasil in the Brigadeiro, a divine chocolate truffle made by Brigadeiro Bakery in SoHo and Spain's chocolate dipped churros prepared by Mamma Duchess.

As the b-day bash comes to an end the room shined as guests held sparklers wishing a happy birthday to you.

A special note of gratitude to Willi Wong for his expert photography eye.

Cheers to the Party!
