BUILDERS BASH: Constructing a 60th Birthday Party

2018 was a year full of fabulous weddings…but it was also the year I got to plan, design and celebrate my husband (aka The King’s) birthday!

60 years is a milestone and when you are planning a party for a man who works so hard, it’s easy to choose his work as the theme. CAUTION — here come’s the construction design decor we created for our friends and family to celebrate my husband’s passion for building, real estate development and architecture.

Guests had the best time taking photos in the 180 Photo Booth by CEG Interactive. This cutting-edge photo booth captured guests in 3D using a multi-camera array. All the photos were instantly merged together into a shareable bullet time photo animation that guests could download to their phone and share on social.

And since my husband loves a good cigar, we setup a bar with the finest selection of cigars for the men (and women) to enjoy on the terrace. We also incorporated hookah for our guests, which is not only cultural but a social activity for after dinner.

We sent guests home with a little goodie from us for helping celebrate my husband’s 60th birthday. Inside these canisters were treats to indulge in on the ride home.

Happy Birthday to my husband Jamal, pictured here with our daughter, Dana. This event was hands down, one of my all-time favorites to coordinate and plan, mostly because it was for the man who has done so much for me and supported my career in this industry. It was only fitting that I constructed him a party, absolutely perfect for him.
