Black and white vintage Chanel themed 40th birthday celebration
I had the pleasure of conceptualising and planning Melanie’s 40th birthday party in February 2018. Our brief was to create an elegant, stylish and timeless birthday celebration for her family and closest friends. The theme Mel decided on was Vintage Chanel and this theme perfectly suits Mel’s natural elegance and style!
Melanie was initially considering hosting her 40th birthday party at a venue in Cape Town but after seeing her and Daniel’s beautiful home, I convinced Daniel and Mel to host Mel’s 40th birthday in their home. With a bit of convincing and a lot of promises (all kept), I was given permission to re-decorate their home in line with Mel’s Vintage Chanel theme.
Pairing with this Vintage Chanel theme, The Field Kitchen created a delicious French menu and guests were welcomed with a traditional French 75 cocktail on arrival.
Daniel hired a live muscian for entertainment and after the very touching and beautiful speeches, DJ Shaun West from The Wedding DJ’s rocked the dance floor!
iCandi Photo Booth lent a fun and entertaining aspect to the evening and Mel has some incriminating evidence on some of her guests:-) Darryl and I included! Gold gloves is the only clue I am leaving behind!
Our floral decor partners, Epanoir Flower Studio lent their hand at creating magic and made pretty with gold, white and black themed floral arrangements and lots of candles.
Thank you to the team at Gorgeous2Go for Melanie’s family and friends stunning hair and make-up!
I loved working with Mel and Daniel and it was such a pleasure to plan this gorgeous and luxurious 40th birthday party!
