Zohe's Plans and Celebrates the Godfather of Birthdays
Last month Felici Events produced Zohe's BIG celebration for her birthday. Inspiration came easy, it had to be Italian, simple and relevant. Naturally, we turned to The Godfather. It turns 40 years old as well this year! Theme, decor and planner tips and tribulations are shared below along with images of the gathering.
Zohe is her own worst client, let's just start out with that. It is interesting being on the other side of the fence. One thing was for certain, it had to be at one of the most unique venues and a favorite location of Zohe's, The Santa Barbara Club. They were AMAZING to work with! From the planning to the execution, it was a first class experience. Here is a mouthwatering sneak peek......keeping with the Italian theme, of course......
Going back and forth on what to do, what not to do, who to invite, how much to spend, etc. Zohe finally decided to listen to her own event planning advice. "Be True To YOURSELF!" Don't try to please other people. It is something we naturally do as humans, and not what you should be doing for OUR day.
The Godfather Birthday Theme stayed thru to the sweet ending, with this horse head cake - let's say, it was one of the talks of the night....
