I’m finally, after almost a year, posting about the time I threw myself an epic birthday party! It was a black, red and purple sweet table celebration and I could not have planned it better! It was an epic celebration. The guest list was a plenty and the wine was a flowing! It was my 40th birthday party!
My birthday is on Christmas Day. Yes, the best day of the year… yet I get set aside when that day comes. So for my 40th last year, I decided to celebrate early. December 2nd (2017) early lol.
I had been planning this party for almost a year. No one else was going to plan this thing. My husband was all on it, but I had expectations. He got to DJ and introduce our sister company that night, Soundbox. The party was going to be rocking with good food, good music and a glammed up venue. Even more, I made sure that my guests came dressed to impress!
Because I had made so many contacts in the event industry over the years, I was able to hire on some great people. The only stress was to really make sure that my family and friends had a good time.
Obviously being in the event industry, I introduced some great trends that night: round and rectangle tables. I absolutely love the rectangle tables. It made it so much linear and chicer. An absolutely gorgeous balloon backdrop for the sweet table done by Sorayda from Creations by Jazzime Rose. A kids section fully equipped with big screen tv and xbox. Sequins table cloths with some tables in satin. Acrylic name tags in lieu of table name cards. And SO MUCH MORE!
As you’ll get to see with the pictures, it was a night to remember. How would you celebrate a milestone? Tell me in the comments below, I’d love to know!
This year I’m going to keep it quiet, but maybe in a few years I’ll throw myself another epic party!
Until the next table, stay sweet!
