To help round out a weekend full of activities, we were so happy to be called upon to design this surprise brunch in celebration of our client’s 50th birthday! The family put their full trust in us to select the color palette. As a fun fact: we came across a beauty ad full with a bold peach, black and orange backdrop that led the decision we wanted to present. In the end, they fell in love with the idea and told us it totally matched her personality. A win!
We took their theme “50 Shades of Semanthe” to blend a mix of textures and colors from this orange hue which enhanced the venue’s chic and modern vibe. To really make the room pop, we called on one of our vendors, Meredith with Rocking Bird Flower, to create bold floral centerpieces. She delivered with compotes of tulips, garden roses and daffodils.
The dining room is set with gorgeous farmhouse tables matched with reclaimed chairs which was the perfect setting for friends and family to gather and celebrate together.
Initially, we weren’t sure if she was going to be totally surprised with it being the last event. We were positive she couldn’t be surprised any further, but from her reaction we were all able to pull it off!
After the shock and lots of hugs, everyone enjoyed the restaurant’s delightful brunch buffet consisting of shrimp and grits, french toast served with grilled peaches plus so much more. We loved how the brunch tied into the theme.
We created an atmosphere perfect for family and friends to catch up and celebrate a true milestone. We once again wish Semanthe a very happy birthday and cheers to many more!
