Hosting a terrific party can be an art form. Especially when the hosts are impeccably stylish, and the professionals involved are committed to a flawless execution.

I created flowers for a two-part event, complete with an afternoon boat ride and dinner party to follow. The dinner party was situated in the front yard of my clients’ future home on Queen Anne Hill. Upon arriving, each guest was handed a drink & a hard hat for touring the home under construction. It was especially exciting to design for a man on his birthday. Clean combinations, with subdued props, plants & candles were used in the tablescape and seating area florals.

You can find the full story of this 30th birthday party, both on land & on sea, at the Style Me Pretty Living blog! Thanks to Katie Parra for these stunning images.



Whether you’re throwing a party, large or small, make sure to have fun. That’s the success in the how.
