Last weekend’s Sweet 16 party was a huge success! Zoe was the birthday girl and she looked stunning in her hollywood style gown. The night’s theme was Old, Glamorous Hollywood and the decor matched perfectly.
Zoe’s mom, Linda, hired me to plan the event and choose the colors, flowers, fabrics, and coordination of the party back in March of this year. Even with limited time, we were able to work together to present Zoe and fifty of her closest friends with the Sweet 16 of her dreams.
Main color choices were black, red and gold. Lots of candlelight and dimmed lighting created a Casablanca effect and highlighted the table linens and centerpieces.
For a very Hollywood feel, all guests entered through the main doors on a red carpet and had their picture taken by one of the photographers at their “grand entrance.”
The florals arrangements included centerpieces with deep, red roses in square vases, with black river rocks speckled with gold paint. Two large, floral podium arrangements welcomed guests at the entrance with black feathers and gold twine. The buffet, gift and welcome tables were adorned with gold, mint julip containers holding dark red roses and delicate black feathers. All flowers were done by my favorite florist of all – The Orange Blossom, which is owned by Jennifer & Julianna (www.theorangeblossom.net). Once again, they outdid themselves and provided exactly what I was looking for and added beautiful touches here and there using their creativity to enhance my original vision.
A candy buffet offered guests a selection of various treats to take home with them as a nightime favor in red, cellophane bags.
Just got some great pictures from Sarah, (you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org) the photographer and friend of mine. I’m so excited to share!
