I am a huge, huge fan of totally unique parties.
As our past clients know, Party Magic (the event styling boutique I manage) is well known for its “no-two-parties-are-alike policy“. In other words, even though we do parties week-in and week-out, every party is special. This isn’t a policy as much as a natural inclination on my part. I just like the whole process of creation and doings for the first time, every time. And besides, things get boring after you repeat them for the nth time!
Once in a while though, a request comes up that literally knocks me out cold! The client, my friend Eleanore, wanted her son Ramsey’s birthday to be patterned after famous TV show Inside The NBA. (Eleanore’s firstborn, Eloise, threw a slumber-themed party at St. Francis right here). She is a true blue NBA fan, and so is her husband!
Here is a sneak peek of the party:
THE BIG IDEA: recreate the studio scene of Inside The NBA
Now this was a true mind-blower. After sitting this down with my hubby, though, we managed to come up with a suitable plan of execution.
Here is how it all turned out:
Everything (and I mean, literally everything) was customized for this party. A bonus was that the stage set-up turned out very photogenic!
Instead of the typical block letters (which I honestly am beginning to get tired of), I opted for a stylized Ramsey lettering designed in the cast of the classic NBA logo. So cute right!
