Glam 21st Birthday Party – Nightclub VIP Style

Glam 21st Birthday Party Nightclub

If your 21st birthday didn’t look like this, don’t feel bad… mine didn’t either! =) But that doesn’t mean we can’t ooh and aah over the absolutely stunning florals, glam crystal chandeliers, and cool “restaurant-turned-nightclub” atmosphere from Arielle’s party… and dream about our own milestone birthday (or wedding, or anniversary, or _______ ) being quite so fabulous!

Bliss Weddings & Events (Columbus, OH) transformed the Sushi Rock restaurant location into a “VIP club experience” for this event. They even constructed a club-style “cabana” around the sushi bar! And I seriously can’t stop staring at the gorgeous floral arrangements blooming throughout the party… They’re all fantastic, but these tall & colorful, lush beauties have my attention in particular:

Already racking my brain for excuses to recreate these sometime soon – as well as the shorter dinner table centerpieces (pictured below) that coordinate with them perfectly!

The Experience:
“The birthday girl wanted to completely transform Sushi Rock restaurant into a VIP club experience for her guests. We opted to do a private dinner for the family prior to the “club” opening.

The doors opened at 10pm and the party went on until 2am! In true club fashion, guests were able to reserve private VIP booths and bottle service prior the party.”

The Decor
Our color palette was made up of red, tiffany blue, black and white and we had to be mindful in how the colors would look in the already red & black room. The best way to keep the colors looking sophisticated was to the pair reds and blacks together and the tiffany blues & whites together.

Our goal for the decor was to read chic and urban. Sushi Rock allowed us to remove EVERY piece of furniture and décor they owned so we could transform it!  However, we wanted to preserve some of the restaurant’s uniqueness, so we accented the large sushi bar in the middle of the room in a way that both fit Arielle’s style and maintained Sushi Rock’s vibe.

Entertainment was important to Arielle and was needed to ensure guests had a great time. An amazing DJ was necessary to make the party hoppin’ and DJ Bandcamp fit the bill perfectly!  We also brought in TWO live performances to keep the energy up. First to hit the stage was Yung LA followed by the talented Wiz Khalifa. The guests went crazy for it, even the NFL and NBA players in the attendance that night!”

What a pretty palette! This would be very easy to translate into a wedding, possibly without changing a thing! Bliss was very versatile in the styling of this event!
