Themed Parties Make a Comeback
May 19, 2009 by admin | comments

From a Barbie-inspired birthday party to a Kentucky Derby celebration, themed parties are back. And they’re more fun than ever! This year, I’ve had the privilege of working on a few themed parties – here are some highlights of my two favorites!

Barbie Turns 50 Party. The guest of honor held her 50th birthday in her Orlando home. Barbie also turned 50 this year, so our client decided to go with that theme and host an adult dress-up party. We enhanced her home with hot pink lamour linens and martini-tied cocktail tables. We even covered her sectional sofa with white lamour for a more feminine touch! To further accentuate the theme, our staff (Stacey and Jeriko) had fun playing dress-up for the day. Barbie dolls were incorporated into our station set-ups, and there was even a life-size Barbie box where guests could pose and take pictures.

Kentucky Derby Party. In celebration of the 2009 Kentucky Derby, our client wanted to host a party. This southern theme was clear from the start. We paired fried green tomatoes with English tea sandwiches and sweet corn and ricotta fritters. The host even provided traditional silver mint julep cups for us to use for the traditional derby drink. Guests cheered on their favorite horse around the client’s big screen while they enjoyed the menu themed for the occasion.
