Festive Dinner Party

A few weeks ago, I celebrated my 30th birthday with some of my closest friends and it was one of my favorite nights of all time. I felt so loved and the entire evening was filled with happiness. We rented out a loft in Detroit, hired a local chef to make us a 5 course dinner, and my best friend and I did all of the flowers, decorations, everything.. it turned out better than I could have imagined!  

When I started planning the decor and feel of the night, this was my inspiration tablescape that I kept coming back to, I just loved the feeling of it and knew I wanted to recreate it all. I'll let the pictures do the talking for now but check out the sources I used at the bottom of the post.

Private Chef: Golden State Chef Co.
'Naked' Cake: Love & Buttercream

We brought in everything to create the evening and couldn't have done it without the help of our friends Katie and Phillip-thanks again, xoxo!

  1. Pretty helpful information on this festive dinner party. Last month, I arranged my family get together brunch party at one of elegant San Francisco venues. Did excellent arrangements for this event and enjoyed party a lot.
