PARTY DETAILS, as told by Ashley

We had the privilege of planning a fun and fashionable birthday party for two amazing women.  These two best friends trusted us with all the details of their celebration and we had a blast planning it and bringing it to life.

The color scheme was black, gold and peach for a sophisticated, bold and stylish look.  Guests were greeted by sparkling rose cocktails in peach champagne glasses with floating blackberries. The main bar boasted a signature drink served in a vintage gold striped pitcher along with personalized straw flags and a variety of liquors and wines.  For dinner, guests were offered salmon sashimi, quinoa salad cups, lamb chops and jumbo shrimps along with an assortment of antipasto and cheeses.

The main focal point of the party was the sweet table which was filled with sweets expertly created by Sophie Bifield of Sophie Bifield Cake Company.  The table included mini vanilla cupcakes, french macarons, gold tipped meringues, chocolate dipped marshmallows, salted caramel bars and a beautiful butter-cream birthday cake. The desserts matched the colour palate perfectly and each treat was incredibly tasty!

For late night treats, black and white striped boxes of popcorn were handed out.  And lastly, mini champagne bottles with striped straws were given out as a thank you to each guest.

Other decor details included DIY fringe balloons, chalkboard food labels, colorful ‘cheer’s and ‘HBD2U’ buntings, and custom chocolate bar wrappers.  No details were spared and we think the party was a giant success!  The event was expertly shot by Tracy Fledderus from Melanie Rebane Photography.
