Chic Chanel-Inspired 30th Birthday Bash

I know most women dread turning 30, but if 30 looks this good, trust me, there’s nothing to fear. With a super-chic Chanel theme, style blogger Stephanie Jenkins of Styled by Noir welcomed 30 in the most fabulous fashion. From the laser-cut and letterpress invitation suite from Lavender & Mint to the iconic Chanel details from ENCORE | Leslie Kaplan Event Design and photos from Jodee Debes Photography, this party has us wishing all birthdays were this marvelous!

From Jodee Debes PhotographyThis is a 30th birthday bash for blogger Stephanie Jenkins of Styled by Noir. Leslie Kaplan of Encore created this glam L.A. soirée—a flirty thirty cocktail gathering at Cecconi’s West Hollywood. This glitzy and swanky affair was inspired by the birthday girl’s love for fashion, all things French and Chanel designs. It came together with a feminine design with a modern edge and a color palette of black, white, blushy rose and copper accents. 

Details from the party included: boxed couture letterpress invitation suite adorned with laser-cut acrylic camellias as a nod to Chanel’s iconic flower, tray-passed Champagne with a rose petal garnish and speciality cheeky napkins, a chiffon ribbon polaroid guestbook, paper camellia and rose flower wall behind the dessert display with Chanel-inspired No. 30 signage, a cake covered in white chocolate shavings with oversized black taper candles, girly ribbon bow chair treatments and confetti wands for the happy birthday serenade.
