A 90th birthday party that would impress Gatsby himself.

There are certain people who make growing older an exciting prospect instead of a dreaded one, and the charming Bea Sheftel is definitely one of those people. When Bea’s daughter Marilyn approached us about putting together a 90th birthday party for her mother, we knew right away that this was going to be something special.

GatsBEA was an opulent and extravagant celebration that turned becoming a nonagenarian into the perfect chance for the party of a lifetime. The evening’s Roaring ‘20s theme was incorporated into every aspect of the experience, which unfolded in three distinct phases throughout the evening. Décor for the Welcome Reception, designed in a black-and-gold palette, pulled inspiration from the era of underground prohibition lounges. The decadent Gastby Dinner was lavishly set in a luxurious silver palette. While guests were enjoying dinner, the reception area was transformed into the final phase of the evening – a grand reveal of the photobooth experience, cigar lounge, and a dessert display on the patio.

With a theme like Gatsby, guests had an expectation of opulence, and our goal was to not only exceed those expectations but to go beyond the expected to create something that truly wowed both the invited guests, and the guest of honour.
