I love this theme, I love planning parties in people’s homes, and this client was an absolute dream to work with! When all the pieces fit together so seamlessly, a day on the job really doesn’t even feel like work! Let me back it up a bit … You all know that our business revolves around the home. Making it beautiful, functional, and ready to entertain in. This client actually approached us about planning her birthday party first and is now working with Lauren to create a fabulous office space in their garage for her husband (more on that soon). What do I love so much about home events? We get to fit the design of the party into what already exists in their most sacred space. This birthday was no exception!

This home is adorable, set back from the street with lots of trees and lush greenery, with different levels in their front patio area. We created an event space that almost all took place outdoors (in the front) by using all the open areas.

These paper picado banners were purchased on Etsy and created a beautiful welcome for the party’s theme.

All furniture (rented from Signature Party Rentals) was kept simple, crisp white and wood, and looked as if it could live in this space permanently.

I cannot say enough about these gorgeous floral arrangements made by Mulberry Row in the perfect shades of pink!

I love this detail! One of our favorite things to do is to use natural elements found around the home in our design.

A fire pit? Why not turn it on!

A bar? Yes, please!

We knew when planning this party that having a tequila centered bar was going to be very important. Mr. Bartender came and created specialty spicy margaritas and Palomas for all the guests, and the host’s vintage bar was the perfect decor element!

Inside the house, we created an appetizer and dessert display fit for a queen!

This on theme cheese board was complete with chips, salsas, and cheeses galore! Small bamboo appetizer plates added one more casual touch.

These cookies were to die for and purchased from Cookie Good

The cake was purchased from Hansen’s

… and decorated by a duo you know and love (Tami and Lauren from Side by Side, wink). No we did not make that gorgeous cake topper! It was purchased on Etsy (from VintageBabyDoll) and was absolutely perfect!

Our favorite taco vendor not only makes the best meats but also their own tortillas on the spot!

What’s a tacos and tequila themed party without a taco cart anyway?

Such a gorgeous display of salsas and other toppings, quesadillas, and jalapeños stuffed with cheese!

I die for these adorable napkins … Taco ’bout a party!

One more fun touch! Vardo Tarot came complete with her vintage van! What a fun activity for guests to partake in!

A special birthday shout out to our very special client! I loved every second of planning this fun themed birthday party with and for you! For more information about our home event services, contact us at info@sbsdesignla.com.
