Why does magic have to stop once you hit puberty?! Who said fairies and unicorns don’t exist?! Well scientists, but that’s besides the point. I never quite understood why whimsy stopped at adulthood… probably the most obvious statement given I created The Frosted Petticoat. But my point is this: magic and fairy dust should always have a place in your life. It adds fun and happiness to life, qualities that Disney makes billions upon billions of dollars on a year. They’re clearly onto something. So, when I’m sent styled photography and recipe submissions like this one today, they make my heart happy. Unabashedly colorful, gleefully majestic, and plain-old fun. This is what an adult birthday party should look like. Photographer Caroline Ross breaks down some of the details and gives us a signature cocktail recipe that is bookmark worthy…
Event planner Cristie wanted to create a bright and colourful birthday party styled shoot and teamed up with party shop Make Merry to create her vision. Make Merry provided Party Decor, Favours and Tableware and Lavish Liquids was the bartending company providing the beautiful drinks.
Every great theme party needs a custom cocktail! The girls at this party are fun and stylish and needed a designer drink to impress their friends. The Van Clover Club cocktail matched the bright colours and cool vibe of this party.
So is there still enough magic in your heart to pull off this birthday party?
