{Event Recap} Vintage Jewelry Surprise Birthday

I was asked to design an event for my client's mother. Her mother, unfortunately, was robbed 2 weeks before her birthday and 4 generations of jewelry was stolen. My client was inspired to throw a jewelry themed surprise luncheon for her mom. She asked all of the guests to bring one pair of earrings as a gift for the birthday girl. I was very touched by this story and pulled together a simple design with hints of vintage jewelry. The color palette for the party was pink, cream and white with lots of wood accents. The party had a combination of clean, modern colors with rustic accent pieces. It made for a really spectacular combination.

For the dessert table I ordered some fabulous custom cookies with beautiful cameos featured on each one. This was huge hit as it closely resembled one of the birthday girl's favorite broaches which was lost.

The picture on the right is taken with my phone but you can really see the detail of the cameo!

I also included strawberry cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, strawberry parfaits, strawberry whoppers, mini doughnut rings and a lovely strawberry cake.

I decided to use cherry blossom branches in tall white bottles as the backdrop of the table. I didn't want to take away from the beautiful wallpaper!

For the lunch the ladies were served a variety of salads and roasted vegetables, a mixed juice spritzer, white wine sangria and lemon water. All the tables had fresh flowers which were purchased the day before in the LA flower district and at a farmer's market by myself and the hostess. At the end of the event all the ladies took home strawberry bath salt favors.
