A Surprise 50th Birthday

A Surprise 50th Birthday

This has to be one of the most fun events we’ve planned. Not only was it a surprise party, not only was it a 1950’s themed event but it was also to be set up in a garage…an actual mechanics garage.

For this event we sourced and mailed out all the invitations, managed the RSVP list, booked and created the menu with the caterer, sourced the stylin’ cake, booked a live band, and more including managed the arrival of all the deliverables when the client’s son called in a bit of a panic because he couldn’t get his dad to leave the garage.

I’m not going to lie, I was in a panic about turning a garage into a party space. I mulled over decor ideas for weeks, not finding exactly what we needed. Until someone made a suggestion of someone I could contact. And then it all just fell together, perfectly! How awesome is this diner counter we were able to use? It can’t get any more perfect than this. Ok it did get better because we served milk shakes from it.
