As always, an unforgettable lady calls for an unforgettable birthday celebration! The stylist’s lucky mother was the guest of honor at this blush beauty of a garden party where classic and elegant mingled with art deco. You can’t go wrong when you combine fabulous La Tavola linens, and stunning calligraphy with LOTS of hand-made sweets. It’s ALL about the details at this feminine celebration. Lucky for us Tiffany Amber Photography was in attendance to capture every stunning shot! Follow along for intimate moments as told by stylist and daughter, Jacqui Marino of Deets & Things.
From the designer: "Since most of her grandchildren have late summer birthdays, by the time my mother’s birthday came around each fall, she always urged us not to make a big fuss. This year, however, with my brother and his family in town from the East Coast, we were determined to give her a worthy celebration."
"I fell in love with La Tavola's blush velvet collection and built the color palette of the celebration around it, mixing in buttery blush and muted hues. Cherished Rentals Terrain dinner collection paired with their vintage floral china to give the table a feminine and dainty feel. Each setting had a calligraphy leather menu and glass tile place card s that I painted and gold leafed."
"Playing with dessert ideas was my favorite part of designing this party. Sweetlee Made and her team did an exquisite job executing the vision from their gorgeous floral cakes to the prettiest array of donuts. Each beautifully crafted cake was topped with a hand-lettered cake topper by Dear Heart Signs - a staple for all birthday celebrations."
"As we sat back and enjoyed the candlelight evening with our close ones, we knew “these were the best years...” and relished in the joy and laughter of an unforgettable evening."
