I had the pleasure of styling a Retirement/70th Birthday party for a Client’s husband.
He was a philosophy professor and the two of them have traveled the world. They have collected many exotic treasures that mean so much to each of them.
We decided that this party should be about what Mr. F loves and means the most to him…afterall it is about him!
So, that is what we did!
You won’t always see a dessert table with an animal skin but wow does it make a statement!
I let one of the Granddaughters write on the candy jar tags…and I LOVE the personal touch she added to this Celebration!
One of my favorite elements were the paper boats I ordered from Etsy!
Mr. F loves fishing, so the boats were perfect to hold nuts and candies, and we had them made in atlas and dictionary pages which spoke to the professor in him!
The venue for this event was our local golf course…and it is a little gem!
The room has a great view, great wood and lights, and I personally love the chairs…and it really worked well with our decor!
We had 10 tables to create centerpieces for, so I had my client gather things that they have picked up on their travels, books, pictures, and anything else that shared a piece of their history.
Fresh flowers from the farmers market were the perfect finishing touch!
I loved this party…I love the sentiment behind it.
I think my “style” is definitely becoming more defined.
I love creating events that are personal, and share a little
something about the person being celebrated!
