OMG, we were totally buggin’ when one of our regular clients asked if we would be interested in planning her youngest daughter’s “Sweet Sixteen” party! Well, that was a no-brainer, especially when she told us that she wanted it to be inspired by one of her all-time favorite movies, Clueless. (You know the one where Alicia Silverstone plays Cher Horowitz, a Beverly Hills high school student.) Without hesitation, we jumped right into planning a party about the teen cult classic and totally get it…the style, the attitude, and of course, the lingo.
The venue needed to be classy and elegant, yet intimate for all of her trendy friends. We didn’t want a typical ballroom setting either, we needed a club-like atmosphere. We decided that V Boca couldn’t be more perfect. So, we met with Galaxy Productions to get everything in place from the centerpieces made with single roses in test tubes and plenty of candlelight to the modern décor, crystal chandeliers, and sleek furnishings.
We used our Guest of Honor’s (GOH) initials “AS” (Coincidentally the same as the movie’s main actress) to carry throughout the party which just happens to also be one of the most iconic phrases in the 1995 feature… “Ugh, as if!”
Just “as if” V Boca’s layout and design weren’t fabulous enough, we had to have the “most capable looking” dance floor and table wraps to complete our look. The colorful graphic design featured all our GOH’s favorite things and gave so much impact in the space. Another big “WOW” factor was the swing vignette we designed for the best “insta” opportunities.
DJ Kris Prime was “Rollin’ with the Homies” on the dance floor while Jonathan Mavila of Mavila Photography showed that he certainly wasn’t clueless in the photog department; He took the most amazing snapshots the entire evening. The cake from The Cake Lovers made its’ own statement as did the abundance of swag. But it was the marbling that ultimately received the most attention. The tie-dye painting technique showcased at many outdoor festivals such as Coachella was brought in from out-of-state to be a part of this special teen’s celebration.
Being totally butt crazy in love with our clients and parties always makes a STYLED EVENT!
Mazel Tov again to Avery and her family!
