If I could throw a birthday party every year for the rest of my life...it would easily mimic this celebration. Hosted by Christie and Laura at Events in the City for her big 3-0, this cooking class meets champagne free for all is basically everything I want in the world. With florals from Holly Chapple, photographs from Jodi Miller the only downfall is that I didn't make the guest list! Click here for more party ideas!

From Laura at Events in the City...Cheers to turning 30 in style! We don't take birthday parties lightly around here at Events In The City, especially when its for one of our own. Christie celebrated the big 3-0 at the Salamander Resort in Middleburg, VA in their private cooking studio. Hosting her friends and family for an evening over gourmet food, perfectly paired wine and plenty of toasts were her biggest wishes. We can whole heartedly say that we achieved that and thanks to Jodi Miller Photography it was all captured on film.

Holly Chapple created lush arrangements and garlands using copper pots which were the ideal accent to her italian inspired fare. Mimicking the use of copper onto the chargers from DC Rental was a given and along with the use of Christie's favorite color, a light french blue and preppy stripes this whole look just sang.

One of the biggest highlights of the party was actually the invitation itself which Christie dreamt up and with the help of Miss Merkle Designs, it was executed flawlessly. She absolutely adores all things bubbly so shipping out personalized bottles of Prosecco in carefully crafted boxes, adorned with copper personalized belly bands with each guests name written by Meant To Be Calligraphy. The best part of the invite was the RSVP! You had to pop your bottle and mail the cork back in the pillow box to confirm your attendance. How cute is that?

The guests took home a slate board and chalk to use for appetizers and cheese along with a printed menu of all the delicious food we were catered to with from the team at Salamander Resort.

The final touches of the day were the reiteration of a fabulous Italian saying which showed up on the double sided menu cards and signage outside of the cooking studio itself. Translated to English simply means " Age And Glasses of Wine Should Never Be Counted". Well we are are all sure counting our lucky stars to have such a vibrant and lovely friend to call our own and share her milestone birthday with!
