Camo’S 60th Birthday Party

Our client’s brief for styling and theming her husband’s 60th birthday party was left pretty open to our interpretation. We were conscious of creating a suitable color palette and styling solution appropriate for a bloke’s birthday party. We chose blue, green and silver as our color palette for the birthday party. We created a custom circle bunting, which we hung under the main deck and around the backyard. The custom bunting added a splash of colour and looked quite sophisticated.

We organized two giant balloon columns with large number 60 foil balloons at the entrance, which made an unforgettable welcome statement. It really announced that guests had arrived at the 60th birthday party event

The client had organized for two huge pans of paella to be cooking immediately as guests turned the corner to enter into the birthday party area. This created a delicious aroma that greeted the guests.

Our event styling and props hire included a Polaroid photo station, which was placed on a table so guests could help themselves. They used our birthday photo props to hold up while having their photos taken. After they had taken their Polaroid, they clipped it up on a mini peg line that we had setup. The peg line was a great alternative to a photo album. It also allowed the guests to see all the Polaroid photos that had taken on the day and provided a talking point.

We filled the lounge room with green, blue and white helium 60th printed balloons. We included our custom circle bunting across the front of the main cake table. This was a great way of continuing the theme of the bunting throughout the party venue.The client had organized an amazing themed birthday cake. It was in the shape of a bull dozer, complete with edible soil. To complete the birthday cake table styling we added two bouquets of bright yellow flowers. We were careful with the flower selection, to ensure that the fresh flower arrangements were ‘manly’ enough for the 60th birthday party event. We always find that fresh flowers are an essential component of any event styling.

We also organized a fully equipped coffee cart, complete with a barista. The hired coffee cart was a huge success as guests could order their favourite hot beverage at any time during the birthday party. For anyone wanting something stronger than a coffee, our expert bar staff had that all under control.A birthday party is not complete without the music. We organized a jukebox as the music for the party. It gave guests something to do during the afternoon by selecting their favourite party tunes. It really helped to create a great atmosphere for 60th birthday party.We organized a selection of petite four desserts including: delicious hazelnut and cranberry meringue cakes, carrot cakes and Pistachio raspberry teacakes. They were a tasty treat for the guests to eat during the afternoon. The shot glass desserts in flavours including: Chocolate mousse with crumbled honeycomb; Espresso and grand marnier Tiramisu; vanilla bean and candied lime Panna cotta; and Strawberry cream cheesecake with a coconut almond crumble also proved to be super delicious.
