Modern Rose Gold 13th Birthday Party: Bice Palm Beach

Modern Rose Gold 13th Birthday Party: Bice Palm Beach

I recently designed a surprise 13th birthday party at Bice Palm Beach! With a little bit of instruction from the birthday girl's mom, I came up with this tablescape.

She said that the birthday girl and her friends were very modern, and loved all things rose gold and marble.  I featured this in my design, along with white florals. I created some ambiance with a lot of votives and candles, and of course, some sparkle with the rose gold table runner!

The customized menus were a marble background with rose gold lettering.

I created the arrangements, and did a mix of hydrangeas and white roses. I also put some white roses in the rose gold votives, as seen below.

The custom gold polka dot champagne glasses were from Etsy, and they were so much fun!

We also did some geometric votives as well, keeping things more modern.

The "3" in our "13" balloons didn't hold up perfectly, but it was still a nice photo space behind the gift/cake table!

American Cancer Society's Celestial Gala: Havana Nights Theme

I was thrilled to be in charge of the decor element for the 2018 American Cancer Society Celestial Gala.  This year, our theme was "Havana Nights," and the event was held at the Wyndham Grand Jupiter.

I loved this theme because it's naturally so fun and colorful, so we added pops of color while keeping it very tropical.

Gerilyn Gianna Events provided the beautiful floral centerpieces, and Atlas Party Rental provided the mahogany chairs and tropical napkins.

8 Tips for a Beautiful South Florida Wedding

8 Tips for a Beautiful South Florida Wedding

Tips for a South Florida Wedding Header

Planning a wedding in beautiful South Florida?

It's a wonderful idea, but there's much to consider in our area! Whether you're looking in Miami or Jupiter, it's important to consider a number of factors in planning your day.

Factor in Hurricanes

We’re in South Florida, so hurricanes can and do occur from time to time! Although they’re not typically devastating, they can greatly impact events. When a hurricane hits, there can be road closings, extremely high winds, flying debris, and much more. Hurricane season runs from June through November – make a note of this when planning your South Florida wedding!

Choose the Best Month

For an ideal South Florida wedding experience, choose a date between November and March. It gets hot and humid around April and May, and this definitely continues well into October. It can be very challenging for guests to endure long stretches of outdoor wedding events in the heat and direct sun. Additionally, rainfall is typically heaviest in June and September.

Where's the Beach?

The beach is basically the hallmark of Florida, and if you’re having a destination wedding here, it will more than likely be on the beach. Beach weddings can be incredibly moving and stunning, but there are many things to consider. From the time of day, to tides, to sound issues, sand type, rain and permits, it’s important to ensure you’re considering all of these things in your planning.

Use the Scenery

You don’t necessarily have to do an ocean beach theme for your day, but you can use the natural beauty of South Florida to enhance it. The area offers so much in the way of lush landscapes, palm trees, and gorgeous waters. If you can allow the natural landscape to be a beautiful backdrop and tropical ambiance for your day, it will only add to the charm of your Florida wedding.

What's in the Area?

Even if you aren’t using a Florida beach theme, it can be fun to incorporate the area into favors, welcome baskets, bridal party gifts, and other small, thoughtful details throughout your day. There are plenty of talented local vendors who offer personalized or unique items that would fit the bill of sophistication with Florida charm.

Take a Trip

If you’re planning a destination wedding in South Florida, make sure that you take a trip here (or several, if possible!) before the big day. As your planners, we can help with much of the legwork, but it’s still crucial to see your venue and the surrounding area for yourself. No matter where your day takes place, it’s very helpful to envision your wedding in person.

Beyond the Ocean

There’s more to this area than just the beach! You have the beautiful intracoastal waterways and other marina views that make for stunning weddings and reception backdrops. Consider other venues that may offer a unique view and vibe that might just be perfect for you. From the modern to the rustic, South Florida has a lot more options than just the beach.

A Plan B

With any wedding, it’s important to have a Plan B. Florida weather is notoriously unpredictable, and it can be sunny one minute and pouring rain the next. A solid Plan B will ensure that you still have a beautiful day in a dry (or less windy) setting – and avoid a lot of stress!
