40th Birthday Party in New York

categories Cocktail + Dinner Parties, Details + Decor, Flowers + Greenery, Pretty Paper

Event design extraordinaires, Alchemy Fine Events & Invitations, have been in the biz long enough to have clients trust them to design an entire event based from three small words. The three words their client (and birthday girl) gave them to go off for her 40th birthday bash: Love, Laughter & Smiles. They completely nailed it and there’s not a detail left untouched!

This was definitely the party for a lover of orange and of modern, clean contemporary design. Clean sleek lines, lots of chic white couches and ottomans, chevron textiles, and mixed glass and Lucite made for a modern yet eclectic feel that was still warm and inviting. Turning the young 4-0 has never looked so good!

Projecting on a large wall or floor is such an awesome way to add graphic details to your event.

These hot multi-colored chevron invitations were designed by Alchemy Fine Events & Invitations, obvs. This is just of the beginning of the chevron. The graphic pattern makes a grand appearance in every detail later on.

Designing T Shirts for the catering staff to wear? Brilliant!!!

Mid-century modern smoky and topaz stackable side tables were paired with rustic wood logs to create a visually interesting cluster upon which to layer vibrant orange and clean white arrangements of roses and orchids.

To keep in theme and design of the custom chevron pattern they created for the invitation, they printed fabric via Spoonflower to use for the throw pillows.

For an extra special touch, they created a VIP lounge complete with ‘bottle service’ boasting a luxury tequila tasting served out of an orange Hermes tray.
