Happy Birthday to Amber!
This beautiful setting was part of the ambiance for a special and intimate birthday dinner thrown for a wonderful lady named Amber. Amber's friends pulled together and called upon our own Karen, of La Soiree Chic, to add a little "chic" to the birthday dinner.
We came up with this beautiful and classic bouquet of Vendela roses, white hydrangea, lisianthis and stock in a simple square glass vase and trimmed with a touch of navy blue and a belt detail with a little "bling". A coordinated, custom wine charm decorated each wine glass. We chose this palette after we had to throw out all decor plans when the restaurant it was hosted at, made a very bold and undeniable decor choice with an over-sized American flag. Since you can't deny that the flag is there and don't necessarily want to entirely embrace it for a girls-night-out birthday dinner, we took cues from the location and palette and came up with something simple, classic and beautiful.
The favors (gorgeous antique-inspired, pendant necklaces) were wrapped in a jewelry box with a simple ribbon detail and quote that embraced the passing of time, as our favor necklace indicated.
The guests loved their favors, sipped wine from their charmed glasses and soaked in the beautiful atmosphere. Happy Birthday, Amber! We hope your night was as beautiful as you are!
