Also last month … 100 Layer Cake
featured my Palm Springs 30th birthday bash
. They did an amazing job compiling the photos but, as promised, I have rounded up a few of my favorites from the night.
No party of mine is ever void of pattern and this one was definitely no exception. I was able to incorporate all of my own textiles as table cloths, napkins, and table runners. I also framed the bar area out with a DIY gold geometric garland.
The “Alice in Wonderland” theme was shown through over-sized bow headpieces, Alice and the White Rabbit Place cards, “drink me” labels on the glasses, top hats, cat mask, rabbit ears, gold painted flamingos, giant paper flowers, and the mix of fanciful patterns.
Black bow ties served as napkin ties and double as party favors. As the party went on some of the guests wore them on their heads, around their neck and on their wrists as boutonnieres.
…and what party is complete without a smilebooth
This one will definitely go down in the books as one of the best birthdays ever.
