Sarah’s vintage 40th birthday
A vintage 40th birthday
To celebrate turning 40, Sarah planned something a little more elaborate than the typical restaurant outing for her birthday. A vintage 40th birthday celebration hosted at home.
She gathered her nearest and dearest to dine by candlelight in her backyard where guests feasted on a delectable grazing table and sit down dinner by Pot & Pan Culinary, sipped on bubbles and wine from our vintage crystal stemware and sang happy birthday around the gorgeous naked birthday cake made by Sarah’s mum.
It was an amazing way to ring in a new decade for the birthday girl. Sarah imagined a vintage inspired tablescape with a palette of greens, pinks, silver, cut crystal and wood and enlisted our help with tableware, glassware and napery, while St Hakea Event Design took care of the floral design including an impressive garland made from foraged peppercorn, gum and persimmon.
Adding her own personal touch to the celebration, Sarah printed photos of a special memory for each of her guests with a handwritten note about why they were so important to her – and these doubled as the place cards. Her dad’s 2013 and 2014 Shiraz was also served to guests.
“Everything was exactly as I had imagined. And to have my birthday at home, made it even more special”, Sarah said.
