A Night Like MO Other

For Morgan’s 40th, she wanted long farm tables filled with friends, food & wine under a canopy of fairy lights. We loved her vision from the start. The mood board for the night was inspired by images of interior designer, Kelly Wearstler’s, work that had a color palette of emerald green, black, white & gold. When a client shares my girl crush on Kelly Wearstler, I’m 100% on board. We thread the colors into place cards, menus, floral, napkins & even paper straws.

To bring the emerald green into the place cards, we used a technique that is one of our old favorites: dip dying. For the menus, we added a new technique that we’ve loved from afar for a long time but had never tried in-house: gold leaf.

The perfect green velvet settee from Panacea Collective carried everything into the lounge area where guests had cocktails & appetizers to start.

The event space, 7Co, had the perfect room to stage the farm tables and tunnel effect with the light strands. We partnered with Intelligent Lighting Design, and the light installation was just as stunning as we’d imagined. It transformed a blank slate into a magical setting for dinner. When guests moved to the dinner room, Parkside served family style goodness course after course.

To finish the night off, everyone danced the night away to beats by DJ Honeycomb. Everything was captured on the mobile photo booth and shared with #apartylikeMOother. Our new roaming GIF booth is such a fun addition to the dance floor! More info + hilarious gifs here.
