A Gatsby Birthday Soiree

Back in January, I helped one of my fabulous past Brides, plan her equally fabulous 30th Birthday soiree!!  Never one to turn down a reason to party, Melissa wanted an evening where her friends and family could let loose, get glammed up, and dance the night away! A fellow lover of all things gold and sparkly, we took inspiration from The Great Gatsby, and had all the guests arrive in only 1920’s appropriate attire!  Gatsby quotes were sprinkled throughout the room, thanks to the talented Megan of Two Tiny Elephants, and an overload of candles lit the already glamorous space of Ma-luxe.  The bar served up post-prohibition approved cocktails, and the party guests nibbled all night on delicious food provided by Food For Thought, and my personal favourite idea we had: A Chip Bar (you know…like a candy bar, but with chips!).

A confetti bar was also set up, for guests to toss on the birthday girl, whenever the moment felt right!  And to top it all off, Melissa had Jesse Holland Photography join the party, to document the evening, and entertain her guests with a seriously awesome photo booth.  Ok.  Enough from me.  Check out the photos below (all courtesy of Jesse Holland), as they will have you reaching for the champagne ready to party yourself!
