There’s nothing that we love more than seeing how the party professionals style their own birthday parties. When Sherry Matta from Beyond Elegant recently celebrated her 39th birthday, she decided she didn’t want to hold off another year to go all out. Why wait til 40? Thus the theme for the ‘Not a Milestone’ 39th birthday’ was born! The party was styled in pink with shades of black and gold.

As Sherry told us ‘Does it really have to be a milestone to celebrate? I believe that every year is a milestone in our journey. So there us always reasons to celebrate!’

We agree! She styled up a perfect 39th birthday in modern and elegant style.

This is how you do on-trend style! Loving the black vinyl lettering on the acrylic. Drink stirrers are also a must at any grown-up party.

The velvet backdrop was adorned with an organic balloon garland of pink pearlescent, rose gold and black balloons. It was finished off with a gorgeous rustic yet luxe wreath.

Florals also featured on the painted buttercream cake.

Guests were treated with personalised mini bottles of bubbles and a grazing table.

A cute ‘Let’s Graze’ sign is a must for your grazing table or board.
