Last month, the Chiou Family contacted us to see if we could design + style a birthday brunch for their mom's 70th. With it being a SURPRISE and such a milestone of a birthday, we were so excited to take part!
From chatting with the family, we learned that Mrs. Chiou (aka Meishan) is fun, super sweet and a ball of energy. Malachy, her 6-year-old grandson, requested to incorporate the colors gold + turquoise (oh, so perfect!). We were inspired to put together a concept that was bold, whimsical and had some fun personal touches.
For the flowers, we went with a mix of whites + greens including hydrangeas, tulips, hyacinths and baby's breath. We wanted to keep the color story simple and let the gold and turquoise really pop! We had fun crafting the details -- the garland, the drink mixers, as well as the favors. We hand painted the gold polka dots on the hearts and then painted little pasta letters to spell out each of the guests' names. Mrs. Chiou was not only pleasantly surprised, but she kept tearing up throughout the day because she was so touched!
A thousand thanks to the Chiou Family for having us! So happy to have made your mom's 70th birthday a memorable day for everyone involved!
