We challenged 23 talented party vendors to design a party inspired by a USA location.
Sweet Sienna Event Styling chose Los Angeles, and was inspired by the luxury and glamour of Rodeo Drive to curate this very creative Sweet Sixteen birthday party.
A Rodeo Drive inspired Sweet Sixteen birthday
What inspired you to choose Los Angeles?
I chose Los Angeles as I love the glitz and glam of celebrities . LA is known for being the capital of celebrities and celebrity sighti ngs. I’m intrigued by their luxurious lifestyles, so I immediately thought of Rodeo Drive. Arguably the most famous street in the world, Rodeo Drive is one of the most fashionable places to shop and be seen . It oozes luxury, wealth and class, so I wanted to incorporate that into my shoot.
What influenced the theme and styling?
My inspiration for this soirée was to create a Rodeo Drive themed Sweet Sixteen that a self-confessed designer brand loving girl would dream of celebrating! I wanted my set-up to include mini shopfronts as part of one main display, but instead of luxury bags and shoes, I wanted to showcase delectable desserts themed to each brand. I chose Chanel, Louis Vuitton and Tiffany & Co. For Chanel, I wanted to capture the iconic symbol and classy black and white colours with a touch of pink to keep it feminine. Louis Vuitton are famous around the world for their designer bags and LV initials so I chose white, gold and br own to tie in with the brand’s theme. Tiffany & Co are famous for their expensive jewellery and the Tiffany Blue colour is very distinct. I wanted to capture a Breakfast at Tiffany’s feel, with the birthday girl and her guests dining amongst the luxury of Rodeo Drive.
Which DIYs or party trends did you incorporate into your shoot?
Sweet Sixteen birthday parties ar e definitely coming back in trend, long gone is the home backyar d party of the ‘80s and ‘90s. Sweet Sixteen parties disappeared for a good decade or so. Now it’s a celebration worthy of a wedding, with amazing styling, large guest list, top DJ, fabulous venue and amazing food. I also incorporated lifesize floral numbers that are so on-trend right now. They are a great backdrop to take photos with family and friends to capture lovely memories.
