Fortieth Birthday Party Details:
This is what Claire said about planning the party- ”I have often found that I have a conflict of personalities; the very strong take no nonsense me and then the very soft, girly side of me so I wanted something to represent that for my 40th, a milestone celebration. The antlers coming out of a bed of flowers not only showed the type of person I was but it was a very fun design to work with.
I used a colour theme of pink, mint green and lilac with accents of gold and the décor included storm shades with handmade gold antlers and flowers, lots and lots of hanging bottles and jars filled with flowers and fairy lights, vintage velvet lounges and wooden crates. I love the whole enchanted forest feel but wanted it to be a little bit more mysterious and grown up so I used a lot of fairy lights but had them on ground level so it threw the light around.
The invitation I designed set the theme for the party and was the graphic that was used as inspiration for the sweet makers. The dessert table consisted of chocolate covered Oreos with an edible print of the design used on the invitations, cookies and cream Oreo cake pops in splashes of pink, mint and lilac with a dash of gold; vanilla, salted caramel and strawberry Macarons with gold highlights, three tiered cookie stacks with gold antlers or flowers, strawberry mouse and vanilla pudding in little jars with gold deers sitting atop, individually wrapped chocolate bars and the showpiece gold cake with antlers and cascading flowers.
To keep with the enchanted woodlands feel faux grass was laid, a black chalk board feature wall was painted and the walls under the benches were also painted black to help throw the light and to give the illusion of depth to a smallish area. Brushwood fencing was used as walls to enclose the open space”.
