Planning: 50 Shades of Marise – A Beautiful Birthday Party In Brooklyn

The first day I met Marise I was immediately attracted to her spirit and that infectious laugh of hers. So I was very excited to sit and chat with her one evening so she can tell me all about how she wanted to celebrate her 50th Birthday. She loves travel, Girl Scouts and designer bags…EMPHASIS on the designer bags. She wanted a black, white and blush black tie party that was fun and festive and showcased her love of… you guessed it, designer bags.

In lieu of having cut outs of purses all over the room we, with the help of LeTrice from LePenn Designs, incorporated some luxury paper with a designer finish, named her tables after her favorite designers and designed a logo so we can create stationary reminiscent of a designer logo bag (think Louis Vuitton with the LV all over the purse – if that makes any sense). Based on her wants, needs and desires we decided to host her Birthday party at Giando on the Water. She was sold on the view alone and the parking. If you know anything about Brooklyn, New York you know good parking and venues are unicorns in the hood. We spent over a year fine tuning the details and partnered with a vendor collective that worked beautifully together. I can’t wait to get the pictures back form Amy Anaiz Photography but for now take a peek at a few of my un-professionalphone photos:
