What do you get when you combine a historic music venue & barbecue joint with Maroon 5, and add a twist of vintage carnival? You may remember earlier this month when we mentioned working on a client’s huge birthday blowout, tossing the term ’rock concert’ into the mix here & there. Well after a year of planning, the 40th birthday event came and went in what turned out to be the best party I’ve ever been to (and you know we event planners don’t use that descriptor lightly!) Since words can’t possibly describe the detail that went into this 600-guest affair, we’ve brought in the fabulous photography of Cory Ryan to help tell the story. Follow the jump for our favorite images, because this is one you don’t want to miss!
A massive tent from Marquee Tents made for the perfect canopy above the food & games area, embellished with colorful twinkling globe lights & draped gauzy fabric.
We couldn’t have asked for a better team than our friends over at Townsley Designs, who custom created the stunning signage & furniture. When the party started, guests flocked to Midway for fortune telling, temporary tattoos, and cotton candy.
Flowers by The Byrd Collective were spot-on, with bright & punchy wildflowers arranged in beautiful vintage crates, boxes, and bottles.
Is it any wonder why the ladies of the party were swarming towards the stage? Maroon 5 put on one heck of a show!
