Amanda was delighted to be asked to plan Fiona's 50th Surprise party. Fiona's incredibly gracious and stylish family wanted nothing but the best for their Mother and Sister.
After considering venues such as the Boom Boom Room, Avenue and The Jane Hotel, it was settled the fête would be hosted at Beauty and Essex in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
The evening was jam packed full of surprises and special touches. the guests were greeted by a live calligrapher Rachel of Rae Child. Who scripted the guests place cards on a deep purple stock with golden ink. Rachel also designed the menu's for the evening as well as the Macaron Tags.
Also, onsite for entertainment throughout the evening was the fantastic 5000 Jazz Maniacs a blues-y and rugged jazz band that had the crowd dancing until the very end.
Also brought in by Amanda for the table scape were beautiful florals design by Amy Febinger of Bourgeon which complemented Beauty and Essex's amazing existing decor in their Pearl Lounge. Macaron's from The Macaron Cafe were placed at each setting for a special take away. They donned the evening's tagline "Vivre Fiona".
