Ruling Décor.

Festivities were planned around a game of croquet. With the activity being one of Carly’s favorites, a friendly, yet competitive tone was set. By creating custom signage with a panel of wood and calligraphy markers, guests were provided an easy reminder of gameplay rules.  

Light and Bright. 

Crisp white linens, striped umbrellas, bright florals and textures of wood and wicker came together to complete the theme. With a gorgeous backyard as the venue, each décor element aided in creating the upscaled springtime celebration. Light finger foods and creative cocktails helped set the mood for a perfect day of fun in the sun. 

Parting Words.

Carly’s 30th birthday was filled with competitive games of croquet and delicious rosé! Friends and loved ones gathered for an outdoor affair. In lieu of gifts, guests were asked to make a donation to the Keep Aransas County Beautiful organization. I love suggesting this idea to clients when planning a party, as it’s a wonderful way to give back. By creating a QR code linked to an organization’s donation page, you can easily encourage guests to give while enjoying the celebration.
