PARTY DETAILS, as told by Maressa…

It has never taken me so long to select photos! There were over 500 just of the decorations, and with so many other details, I was lost among so many! But mission accomplished, finally the fantastic João Gabriel party is here!

This was the third year that this beautiful family left JG’s party styling in our hands.

After choosing the beach/surf theme, we had the idea to turn the whole place into a beach tent with mats, towels, palm trees, surfboards, sand and a panel with printed canvas as if we were inside the tent watching the beach in the background. It was the best! Check out all the details! :)

    Super cool ideas! “Luau” is almost a cliche for parties nowadays – this breathes a lot of fresh air into the idea. I love the sand castle cake!
