Celebration: James' First Birthday at The Glasshouses
Event Planning + Design: Karyn Michael Events
Number of Guests: 125
Venue: The Glasshouses - NYC
Highlights: We took James on safari through the wilds of Manhattan to celebrate his first birthday. Having previously worked with James' parents to design their wedding, an over-the-top, black-tie event, we knew they wouldn't settle. In true form they hosted the most amazing birthday party a little boy could hope for. Custom velvet linens in a cream + taupe zebra pattern, monstera leaf placemats, and gold jungle animals climbing the centerpieces. The Glasshouses offers floor to ceiling windows with panoramic views of NYC. Entertainment included stilt walkers, face painters, a popcorn machine and a magician, all there to provide an unforgetable experience for the children. The children's table was covered in craft paper with boxes of crayons + markers, each child also received a pair of binoculars a straw hat to take on "safari". Waitstaff dressed in safari costumes, served champagne cocktails from vintage coupe glasses to the adult guests.
