40th Birthday Bash

The Sugar Plum Sisters went all out on this 40th Birthday Bash, creating an event that everyone was certain to enjoy. They took advantage of the lovely outdoor weather to put together a fantastic venue full of lovely decor and entertainment.

A favorite little touch were the 40th birthday party coaster invites, personalized and bold in brown and orange colors. They had a rustic quality that was very fun.


To create a masculine vibe rustic qualities were incorporated throughout the venue to ensure that both the guys and gals could thoroughly enjoy the events. The tables were covered in fantastic burlap, and chalkboard cloth toppers that stood out remarkably.

For a neat unique touch, rather that using traditional dishware for the party, they used boxes for a one-of-a-kind alternative. They were large enough to hold all the tasty food and each had a personalized birthday label to incorporate the rustic charm.

To give the tables an additional touch of beauty, rustic troughs were filled with succulents and there were an array of lovely peonies in wonderful vases to finish it off.

Instead of regular chairs for each individual, a group cozy feeling was distributed throughout by using benches to sit on. It made it simple for moving around when needed.

Strands of fabulous globe lights were hung to bring a sweet illumination to the tented area, giving a warmth to the atmosphere that was definitely appreciated.

An adult activity set-up at this event was a beer-tasting, letting everyone try not only obscure ales but also well-known options.  The mugs used were a wonderful heavy glass stein that each guest got to take home as a gift at the end of the party. For those who didn’t want to try the beer station a fantastic mojito station was set up to give a taste of strawberry or classic flavoring.

40th Las Vegas Casino Birthday Party

A 40th birthday is a huge milestone that should be rung in with a big celebration and Brittany of GreyGrey Designs did just this, incorporating a fabulous Las Vegas casino theme into an unforgettable birthday party. Simple colors of black, white, and red were used imaginatively to create a party in the image of a Las Vegas casino, wowing guests and making the experience an absolutely unforgettable one.


The decorations were reminiscent of a Las Vegas night, and it felt as though the guests were walking into Caesar’s Palace itself. Streamers made out of playing cards were strung up along the venue, while bouquets of huge feathers sat atop tall candlesticks and vases. The main event table had a glossy black sheen with a shiny backdrop complete with hundreds of miniature images of casino game cards. The incredible birthday cake, however, was the highlight of the table, stacked up into three elaborate tiers complete with a big, white sugar fondant of “40”. The bottom two tiers were decorated in red and black shapes of cards like diamonds, and the top layer was extremely detailed, made up of two large red and white dice. A topper consisted of an edible replica of the “Welcome to Vegas” sign, but instead read the words “Welcome to Fabulous Beau’s 40th Birthday”.

Other treats that were equally as detailed and beautiful on the main table were red dice Jell-O molds pops, red and white Marshmallow pops topped with sprinkles, Dipped Oreos, and frosted sugar cookies in play card and chip designs. Savory fares included grilled chicken and caprese shish kabobs and all of the delicious food had its own personalized label made from a playing cards. Favors were an assortment of fun as well, with the guests taking home bar nuts in personalized party cans and decks of personalized casino cards. It truly was the perfect way to start a fantastic fortieth year.

Peach Mint Circus Party

Event stylist Samantha Dunne of Dunne with Style put together an incredible birthday party that showcased a fun circus theme complete with a brilliant array of bright colors and inglorious décor. The theme of Peach Mint Circus truly embodied the charisma of a birthday and the circus all in one, while highlighting joyful nostalgia.

The main event theme colors of peach and mint offered a crisp feel to the party, while individual flowers made of puffed peach and mint tulle added a whimsical touch as they were placed all over the venue. The main event table that housed the birthday cake and all the most fabulous sweets was absolutely gorgeous with a wondrous backdrop of oversized white paper pinwheels, and an elaborate circus sign welcoming guests to join in on enjoying the circus theme. The birthday cake itself was breathtaking, with two large tiers served on a mint ceramic cake platter. The top tier was all-white, with a topper of a bunched assortment of the mint tulle flowers and a golden elephant figurine. The bottom tier of the cake was really something special, with an ombre design of dark peach fading up into light peach.

Surrounding the cake were magnificently detailed treats, including a miniature mint colored cake with more gold elephant figurines on top, and delightful peach-colored cupcakes presented on handcrafted peach paper pinwheels. A distressed wood mail holder added the perfect chic accent to hold sugar cookies, and peach and mint candies, along with glass milk jars with miniature windmill straws. An apothecary jar full of mint-hued cotton candy and striped boxes full of warm popcorn were clever circus-motif additions, while jars filled with large mustache cake pops brought a timeless look to the table.

The party was tied together splendidly with peach and mint shaded circus flag banners, tassel garland, and a whole shelving bureau opened and full of lines of glass jars full of bright candy.

From Samantha :

For Eloise’s 2nd birthday we wanted to take a fresh twist on a classic favourite so put a whimsical and pretty twist on the circus classic, because lets face it, when you have a 2 year old life is a bit like a circus.

Li-Ann from Ham & Pea Paperie took vintage circus animals and ‘prettied’ them up with the addition of frills and ruffles, we replaced the classic blue and red with the more feminine mint and peach and the tone was set.

Guests were greeted at the tickets booth adorned with vintage carnival tickets, ribbon wands and handmade pinwheels.

The dessert table had a carnival atmosphere with sweet treats including a pair of ombre ruffled cakes, cupcakes topped with mini macarons and cotton candy, chocolate coated oreos adorned with pinwheels. Custom designed sugar cookies to match the vintage circus animals from the backdrop and for the little gents, moustache cookies.

Guests filled up circus tent favour boxes with treats from the candy stand and went home laden with pinwheels, ribbon wands and hand painted gold circus animal figurines – over indulged just like a day at the carnival.
