50TH SURPRISE BIRTHDAY

Full of excitement and anticipation, surprise parties are such a delight to be involved in. Months of meticulous planning all in preparation for the ultimate reveal: the moment that more than 100 of your closest friends and family gather together to celebrate your 50th birthday… unforgettable.

This JustSeventy client wanted to surprise her husband by showcasing his humble beginnings and giving him a night to remember. The ballroom of the prestigious Bulgari hotel was the chosen venue for a night of intricate décor and wild entertainment.

Designing the layout, theme and detail for an event is an area that so many find intimidating yet the JustSeventy team love the creative freedom in order to arrive at the perfect visual concept. Styling the tables and each place setting was paramount in achieving the desired result and this involved carefully selecting charger plates, glassware and cutlery to compliment the overall vision. An abundance of blossom trees combined with beautiful vase displays made the final impact of the room truly breath-taking.

When discussing visual impact at the event, it is the cake which must be mentioned. The cake was positioned in the centre of the dance floor and was an exact replica of the birthday boy’s first ever car he drove… an exact replica made of cake and icing, that is!

Throughout the evening the guests enjoyed perfectly scripted entertainment set to music. An abundance of entertainment included an artist who was live painting the car cake, Brazilian carnival dancers and mirror men dancers. A love of dance became very clear and the dancers with tribal body paint were the perfect addition, also incorporating the family’s heritage through the body art designs.

With the dinner and party all taking place in the same room, the space was at a continual level of high energy. Guests were thrilled to be a part of this surprise gathering and enjoyed partying the night away, amidst the range of exciting visual entertainment.
