Phuong’s 40th Birthday was the Bee’s Knees!
It looks like 40 is the new 20, and boy did Phuong really prove that at her 1920′s inspired 40th birthday bash!
The soiree was held in Coal Harbour, in a swanky private suit with a spectacular view. The space was filled with flowers and feathers, which worked beautifully with the red, pink and gold decorative color palette. The long tables were adorned with art deco candle holders, vintage candelabras and large hydrangea and calla lilly centerpieces. Pink feather balls were hung from the ceiling and guests could find their seats by looking for their names in the gilded frames, placed on the back of each gold Chiavari chair .
Every guests was dressed to the nines! Phuong, and a few of her dames, came into the studio to get into “Great Gatsby” character with a little #Nadittude. The neo-twenties makeup complimented the iconic finger waved hair style, and it all came together thanks to the gorgeous head pieces and accessories from Jewelliete Jewellery and beautiful jewels by Elsa Corsi. Not a detail was missed!
I’m goofy for this outfit!
Care for a ciggy?
These dolls are the cat’s meow!
An event like this wouldn’t be complete without the perfect birthday cake, signature drinks and a exquisite food.
Event Planner Jens Marquardt of Can Thrill Inc., covered every detail when it comes to entertainment! From the live band that greeted guests and played during dinner; to the hoofers who performed and got everyone on their feet to get their wiggle on.
Phuong and her guests had fun posing for the camera at the one and only The Collective You photo booth.
Congratulations, Phuong! Thank you for letting me share this milestone event with you. Here’s wishing you another 40+ years filled with love, laughter, good health and great friendships!
On a side note, here’s some fun 1920′s slang that I had to include in this post:
Bee’s Knees ~ an extraordinary person, thing, idea; the ultimate
Cat’s Meow ~ something splendid or stylish; the best or greatest, wonderful. Similar to bee’s knees.
Get a wiggle on ~ get a move on, get going
Hoofer ~ dancer
Doll ~ an attractive woman
Goofy ~ in love
Ducky ~ very good
Egg ~ a person who lives the big life
