A Garden Party

I just love this idea for a night time garden party. I found this image on New York Social Diary a few months ago and I have been lusting over it ever since. I am celebrating my 30th Birthday later this year and I would just love to have a party like this!! I'll keep dreaming shall I??!!

Anna did you know that my wedding was at a garden. I think is the best place to make parties at. Go for it

Don`t just dream...DI it...you`ll only be 30 once and you and everyone else there will remember this forever...very special and magical!!!

That looks so wonderful! I also like the thought of having a party outside in the dark. The problem is that when you live this north the nights are allways either light or cold.

I went to a party and the hostess had a paper lantern chandelier constructed and the lanterns were in white, ecru and the slightest pink and were all hanging from grosgrain and satin ribbons from a large circle hanging from the ceiling of a tent. It made for an amazing focal point. I thought it was a great take on the usual.

I think that this looks so dreamy! I celebrated my 30th only a couple of weeks ago, and I had a Bollywood theme. Indian catering, everyone in saree's and bollywood movies on a big screen. It was a blast. There's no better occasion to live out a party fantasy! Let us know what you end up doing!

Stunning photo. That would be an awesome party. I wish we had a big enough outdoor space. We have a small deck that fit one small table and 4 chairs. Great for us and one other couple, but not a party.

This is Great, You sould Do it. Last year for my 21st I was going to do a similar party, but that afternoon it started to poor down rain and we had to move the party to another house :(

Anna said...

I agree Courtney - I think this is my favourite thing about this picture!

Anna said...

Oh wow Julie - your wedding must have been so amazing. Can't wait to see the pictures you are going to post on Belle Vivre!!

Anna said...

Anna said...

LOL it was for a three year olds birthday party. The mother told me "Well she only turns three once you know."
