When we were called upon by our cheer sister, Christina, to plan her mother’s surprise 60th birthday brunch, we knew we had to design this day in a way to bring our guest of honor as much joy and happiness as possible! You see, Ms. Sylvia is a beacon of light to a lot of people – be it friends, family or people of her church community. They all gathered for the ultimate surprise birthday brunch that was met with tears and huge smiles.
With the trendy color palette of rose gold, blush, navy and maroon, the hall was decorated with various playful linen textures, low and bright centerpieces with a simple yet elegant place setting. Instead of going with a traditional cloth napkin, we customized this navy set to include elephants, a tradition and symbol of her beloved sisterhood, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. It was also embossed with the family’s significant bible verse, Lamentations 3:22-25, to express their gratitude over Ms. Sylvia’s life after a traffic car accident years back. Truly a special moment!
The celebration wouldn’t be complete with out some desserts for any sweet tooth. Sweet Gypsy Dessert Design, delivered a delicious 2-tier strawberry cake with vanilla bean swiss meringue buttercream alongside a variety of cupcakes and macaroons. It was a sweet end to an afternoon of love where guests reflected on what Ms. Sylvia means to each of them.
We love this beautiful family photo, and continue to wish Ms. Sylvia a very happy 60th birthday!
