Joint 18th, 21st and 50th birthday party
A mother and two daughters turning 50, 21 and 18 was – quite rightly – the perfect excuse for a massive birthday bash, and we worked our clients to create a fantastic festival-style party at their home in Gomshall, Surrey.
Held in July, we were able to take advantage of a warm summer. We set up a stretch tent under which was a food area, bar, dancefloor and stage/DJ booth for the DJ. The very nature of stretch tents means guests can effortlessly move inside and outside, perfect for a party that started in the early afternoon and carried on into late evening.
We dotted white picnic benches around the outside of the tent for informal and relaxed eating, along with beanbags, rugs and low-level tables. A delicious buffet, planned around a Greek theme, was served throughout the afternoon and expert mixologists created cocktails at the bar. As evening fell, coloured outdoor wash lighting transformed the space and the festoon lighting draped around the tent and garden came into its own.
Part of the tent contained a club area and guests happily filled the white starlit dancefloor throughout the evening. A magic mirror photo booth with fun props provided plenty of photo opportunities and, to top things off, the birthday girls were especially delighted with a special surprise birthday cake that was a tour de force!
