Birthday parties are always a festive occasion for flowers. We were asked to turn the private room of Fred's at Barney's New York into a warm and inviting space for a special birthday celebration.

We decided the room really needed an infusion of bright colors to match the birthday girls bubbly personality. We chose to work with flowers in bright pink, purple and fuchsia hues with gold vase accents. We draped the tables with a beautiful raspberry hued shantung linen for this intimate celebration and paired it with a napkin in a slightly darker shade. 

The tables were set in a u-shape formation in order to fit all the guests. The birthday girl also wanted to make sure that the configuration of the room was conducive to being social at this party. There were lots of speeches and tributes to be had for this wonderful woman! 

We placed beautiful flower arrangements in gold caraway antique vases filled with hot pink and purple anemones, purple vanda orchids, purple lisianthus, lavender hued roses and hot pink roses with tiny touches of mint and vines. Each of the arrangements had tiny accent flower arrangements in antique gold votive holders with the same flowers and blooms. Of course, there were lots of gold candles set in between casting a soft glow for this Winter birthday celebration.

Each place setting had a tiny custom scented soap from Ebb & Flow candles and fragrance. The guests names were printed on colorful paper bands wrapped around each soap for the guests to be able to take home at the end of the party.

We wanted to make sure the room felt cozy so filled the windows with rows of gold branches and attached coordinating flowers in purple and pink to the branches for a fun and whimsical display. We had small accent flower arrangements lined along the ledge for the finishing touch. 

It's always so much fun to be asked to design flowers for a birthday celebration or a special occasion. We love being able to transform a private event space in a NYC restaurant into a warm and inviting atmosphere. Thank you to Anna Photo for the capturing these beautiful photos of our work!
