Saying goodbye to a decade is never easy, but it IS a wonderful excuse to throw a celebration to kick off the next ten years ahead. That’s exactly what this mama-to-be and event planner Renata of RDT Events + Beauty did for her fab 30th shindig. From the glam bar to the blooming cake, every inch of pretty makes turing thirty something to look forward to! See more in The Vault from Mango Studios.

There is no need to cry over kissing your 20s goodbye… Hitting the big 3-0 isn’t all that bad, especially when you throw an amazing party with your closest family & friends! For expectant mom-to-be, and event planner, Renata De Thomasis Rollins, turning 30 was about celebrating how far she has come, and looking ahead to what is next!

When planning for her 30th fete, Renata knew she wanted nothing ordinary. George, known for its amazing cuisine, was a no-brainer when selecting the venue. The palette when designing the event was hues of purple and pink, to complement the rustic decor of the restaurant, with hints of black and gold for contrast. Guests entered the private dining space, greeted with a cocktail and choice of hors d’oeuvres: mini mushroom & leek quiche; mozzarella rice balls; avocado & cheddar on toast and chicken satays.

Guests were then invited to take their seats – which were easy to find with a customized menu and a selfie cookie of each guest as their place card! Dinner was served and guests enjoyed a delicious salad appetizer, and either beef tenderloin or salmon curry entree. The sweetest end to this celebration was a delicious, and stunning, lemon cake with poppy flower custard and fresh strawberries. It was definitely a milestone never to be forgotten!
