The team from Studio Bonito (a joint venture between Studio T55 and Pretty Bonito Event Styling) were drawn to the city of San Fransisco’s Summer of Love heritage and created a groovy flower-power/60s themed 30th birthday party!

Summer of Love hippie themed 30th birthday picnic

What inspired you to choose San Francisco?

San Francisco is such a unique place. So full of contrasts and stories. I love the story behind the Summer of Love! The era had great music with beautiful messages, amazing colours, patterns and a chilled and natural look.

What influenced the theme and styling?

We decided on a picnic at a park. Enjoying the Brisbane winter sun and having a relaxed vibe.
