This colorful 60th birthday party for one of our favorite clients may be one of the hardest events we have ever had to pull off! The trick? Surprising the birthday girl with a party at her guest home, which is on her personal property! How on earth would we pull off such an event with her at her main home all day? The answer: a lot of lying and even more teamwork. With a wedding coming up for the family, we planned a birthday dinner that would double as a "wedding tasting" for her son's wedding, and a hair and makeup trial run in the same day so that she was looking better than ever for a casual Sunday at home. The birthday girl is known for her signature poems on party invitations, so our team took the opportunity to write a poem of our own about her big 6-0! Hand painted invitations were delivered to all 50 guests, and golf carts shuttled them secretly to the event site which we designed to mimmick one of her favorite restaurants in France. One of her favorite things? Whimsical fairies! During the "decoy dinner" we hired a fairy actress to ring the doorbell and present the birthday girl with an invitation to her own party. The result? A surprise birthday party to remember forever!
