Le Mystique Masquerade


I have always loved the idea of holding a Masquerade ball to celebrate a special milestone like my 40th Birthday, where guests are required to wear a mask and dress up for the chic occasion.

I did a lot of research months leading up to my birthday, and drew inspiration from the so many amazing Venetian masks and gorgeous Parisian decor. My vision was to create a setting that my guests would feel relaxed and have fun!

My 40th birthday bash was held at home and my guest list included my very close friends.
I chose a bold colour palette of fusia, black and white.  Sarah of Style Me Gorgeous designed and created the invitations, and party printables which were just perfect and exactly what I had envisaged.

Although I incorporated the masquerade mask, which adorned the extended two tiered black and white cake, I wanted to include my love of bird cages into the design and hence my sweets table included bird candy jars and vanilla cookies using the same bird cage motif as the buffet labels.

Black bird cages were scattered around my deck to create a striking visual element. I wanted to add opulence to the setting and chose a beautiful chandelier candle holder as a centre piece and added just the right amount of tea lights to enhance the mood.  I especially love the fusia onion lanterns and black lanterns purchased from Moonlight and Whimsy that provided just enough lighting on our deck.

The chocolate fountain was a hit and it was lovely to see everyone indulging in my sweet delights.  The beverage menu consisted of vodka and raspberry and an assortment of beverages to help my guests stay hydrated throughout the night.                       

The striking and stunning Versailles Chair was hired from To Embellish, Event Syling and Decor and was the perfect prop for my photo booth!

The sweets menu consisted of vanilla cupcakes, vanilla cookies, cake pops, strawberry mousse, macarons, profiteroles, and a yummy assortment of candy.

My party was featured in HWTM blog, and I feel very honoured have been featured along side some very talented party stylists. You can check out the feature here.
