40th Birthday Soiree

Getting ready for my girlfriend Diana's 40th was no small task. She pays very close attention to all the details so I had to make sure along with my co-coordinators that all the special things were paid attention to. I am gonna start by sharing the inspiration pictures and then I will show you the end result. We began by asking her to fill out a questionaire of all her favorite things. While she knew we were throwing her a party, she didnt know all the details. It was quite hard as you can imagine since she is usually the one throwing or helping with events. Pink, black and white are the colors, modern, chic and elegant the theme. Take a look;

Well, I think you get the idea. We had our work cut out for us. We decided on a candy table with some of her favorite treats, pink lighting and white drapes to add a dramatic feel to the room. We also added damask and pink roses to soften the look. Pinterest was a great source for our browsing however, as she is also a pinterest lover, we had to be very strategic in where we put our pictures as to not give away our plan until after the event took place.
