Guys, can we just say we’re LOVING all the spring parties coming our way as of late. This sweets filled soiree and this ikat + coral surprise birthday, are just a few we’ve shared recently. And now? Jacqueline of Deets & Things hits us with her own impeccably executed 30th birthday bash filled with all the inspo you could need this Memorial Day weekend. (Those custom calligraphed wine bottle invitations? Too good!) See (and shop) all the other bits L & B Photography captured:
J tells it, Having just gotten married and started my own event design business in the last year, turning thirty was about celebrating a new sense of self in this uncharted chapter of my life. I wanted a celebration that was as vibrant and fun as I knew my thirties would be… Set in the intimate gated front yard of my sister’s home, I pulled from her garden for inspiration. I wanted a statement springtime palette so I paired jellybean colored hues with a fun bold print. Fresh poppies and ranunculus filled the tables.
All the festive calligraphy by With Love Calligraphy sure sets the tone, huh?
And we’re really getting into custom cocktail napkins ’round here. A must!
At the bar, a fun and quirky sign set a lighthearted mood as guest enjoyed signature cocktails and petite bites before sitting down to a family style dinner. I wanted the night to feel intimate so we hung globe lights low, just above the tables. It was absolutely magical sharing food, and memories engulfed in the lights and glow of love and laughter. I couldn’t imagine a better setting to celebrate the dawn of a new decade.
A fuchsia geode held down each place card at the table, which Jacqueline watercolored and gold leafed herself.
Fun times for all!
Friends, if you’ve got a milestone birthday coming up, don’t be afraid to go all out! Such a special way to ring in a new decade, don’t you think?
Happy birthday to Jacqueline of Deets & Things!
