This past weekend, fifty women joined together for an intimate gathering celebrating a very special person in our live’s 50th birthday. We, along with our younger brother and sister, planned this cocktail party in honor of Evon leaving no small detail overlooked. The tone was set with a color scheme that reminded us of her and lots of personal touches.

We woke up early Saturday morning to go to the Los Angeles Flower Mart. Gorgeous roses and other types of garden flowers in blush tones were complimented nicely when paired with soft, plush greenery. We took all of our purchases home and rearranged them in glass vases to make beautiful centerpieces for each table.

Tiffany blue silk tablecloths and wooden folding chairs were rented from Signature Party Rentals. We hand-picked photos from Evon’s personal collection, placed them in gold vintage style frames, and finished off each table with a cluster of antique glass candle holders (with different textures).

Evon wanted to thank her guests by giving each lady a special take-home gift, and we knew just the right thing. We purchased these mini succulents while we were at the Flower Mart, transferred them into tiny glass jars, and finished them off with a personal note from the birthday girl herself. Each plant was tied with a piece of blush ribbon to coordinate with our color scheme.

The women arrived wearing their highest heels and best cocktail attire and were surprised by a guest visit from a belly dance instructor. The night was complete with lots of food, dancing, speeches, and even a special photo montage with a video clip from her nieces and nephews overseas.

 
 
The catering was provided by Evon’s sister, Suzie (of Suzie’s Deli-cious). She created special appetizers with lots of amazing flavors such as; homemade salsa and chips, tuna tartar cups, chicken skewers, mini fajitas, and fresh salads with seasonal fruit.

Celebrating fifty years calls for more than just blowing out standard birthday candles. This gorgeous chocolate cake exploded with sparklers and light as each guest sang joyfully. Evon was truly grateful to be spending her special day with her closest family and friends, and we were truly grateful to have been able to help with the planning of this special event.
