A 70th Birthday Bash!

A few weeks ago, the mother of the groom from one of my recent weddings called me needing assistance for a birthday party she was throwing for her husband. But this wasn't just any birthday party.. it was a HUGE birthday party for over 400 guests. And that photo above is a piece of art depicting the birthday boy in his birthday suit, of course.
At the time,they only had their venue, the Sheraton Sand Key, and their favorite band being flown in from Colorado. They hired me to plan all the rest and pull together the remaining details... in just 2 weeks. I love a challenge though and this family was so great to work with. Lucky for me, Wally, the birthday guest of honor, was a UF alumni who loooves the gators. This was my kind of party.

A huge thank you goes to all of the vendors who were able to help me pull off this event in such short notice. Celebration Balloon Center provided the festive balloon centerpieces and The Bride's Bouquet designed a beautiful arrangement for the greeting table. The awesome Florida Gator ice sculpture was created by Arctic Ice. The guests were also raving about the delicious cake, cookies, and cupcakes from A Piece of Cake in Tampa. They looked just as perfect as they tasted. The guests were also treated to an ice cream bar to compliment the sweet treats. I really appreciated the assistance that Bonnie and the staff provided at the Sheraton - their service was excellent!
Here are some photos of the event shared with us by Hayley Jones of HJC Photography.. enjoy!!
