Keepin’ it “Real” for a Birthday Bash

What happens when you meet one of the nicest, most down-to-earth, and lovely clients, who wants to (for once in her life) have a Birthday party that’s ALL about her? You make her dream of a “Real Housewives” themed party come to life- that’s what happens!

We took Korin’s idea of a non-existent theme and made it reality by “branding” a  theme that made the Birthday girl the Real Housewife of View Park (where she lives). We used an ombre of blues and white to create a beautiful ambiance for her chic rooftop bash.

A “Real Housewife” theme couldn’t be complete without an Orange County/Beverly Hills/New York City/Atlanta/DC/Miami styled Step and repeat backdrop. With Blue Carpet, of course.

A special photoshoot styled after a well known photographer’s “Alter Ego” work was a dream come true for this Birthday Girl. We put it on display- gallery style-to show of her beautiful portraits.

We kept the floral arrangements simple with beautiful, white oriental lilies & willow, but added a ribbon detail in our different ombres of blue. The linens added to the color scheme also, as we used 4 shades: pale, aqua, royal and navy blue.

For the cocktail tables, a perfectly placed blue martini glass with a lily head was simple, yet stunning.

One of the most talked about pieces of decor, was our stunning paper rosette piece. We wanted a bold way to infuse the rooftop space with color and it really made an impact.

The food was divine- from a noodle bar to sushi to tray passed goodies and a frozen yogurt bar (great on a hot summer day!)

A close up magician walked amongst the crowd, entertaining them with special tricks up his sleeve…

The cake was one of our favorite parts of this wonderful birthday bash! Korin dreamed of this amazing Strawberry cake she is fond of from a bakery in Atlanta. And, while we couldn’t fly a cake out, we were determined to find a local bakery to do the same. We were down to the wire and there wasn’t a single bakery in town that we could find that made an actual Strawberry cake (not strawberry filled, but actual cake made from strawberries). In a bizarre twist of “meant to be” a friend mentioned that she knew a place and 24 hours later, we had our delicious, authentic STRAWBERRY CAKE! Korin was thrilled (and later said the cake was even better than the Atlanta Bakery!) Thank you, Big Sugar Bake Shop!!!

The guests mingled, drank, danced and signed their wishes for the birthday girl…

And once we had a quiet moment (Is there ever such a thing in our line of work?) our “Soiree Girl” team stepped onto the blue carpet for our close up.

We adored working with Korin and her Dream Birthday Party idea! This party was fun, unique, heartfelt, and most of all….REAL.
