Stephanie's Fortieth Birthday Surprise


We're definitely experiencing a disco party trend right now which happens to work out perfectly for our clients who are turning forty.


When styling this disco themed, surprise 40th birthday party we worked with a chic color palette to compliment the stylish home we were working with. White, shiny silver and peach. We found disco balloons in the Studio DIY Shop, that we clustered with an assortment of white and marble balloons which we anchored to disco balls.


We are totally obsessed with the diamond tissue honeycombs that are sold in the Oh Happy Day Shop and found them in peach matching perfectly to the stunning flowers that we arranged for this party in our favorite white, geometric vases.


The jumbo clear confetti balloons are the best and looked perfect in the nook next to the bench for guests to hang out with drinks. We tied mini disco balls down the string and filled a glass cube with the disco balls as a way of anchoring the balloon down.


We strung peach tissue garland banner under the kitchen island counter and created a bar on top for those who wished to help themselves to a glass of wine or the signature cocktail that was being served. The best part was the mini disco ball drink stir sticks that we found on Etsy


A fun detail that we always build into a milestone is customized napkins. These solid gold printed napkins were so festive and cool for guests to grab with hors d'ouerves and cocktails.


The most important part of a party is the food. We brought in one of our favorite catering partners for this event, Cobblestone Catering. We worked with our team to style the food in a playful way and of course everything was so delicious.


Our birthday girl is gluten free and we wanted her cake to be perfect and enjoyable! We found the Happy Healthy Chef who whipped up a delicious, flourless cake for the celebration. Because there's no such thing as too much cake, we also worked with Making that Cake to serve a silver drizzled, strawberry shortcake at the party. We styled both cakes with small disco balls and put them front and center on the table.


No doubt this was an awesome, disco fever filled party and a very happy birthday!
