I had the pleasure of covering one of the most beautiful Sweet 16 parties I’ve ever seen. Activities included an incredibly homemade carnival that could easily pass for the real deal, complete with carnies, a magician, and typical prizes of stuffed animals and “air” guitars, as well as grand prizes of Beats by Dr. Dre headphones and an iPad. Cocktail hour included carnival candies and popcorn, passed hors d’oeuvres, and a drink that imitated a Mojito, complete with mint leaf. Dinner was elegantly served al fresco on a tri-level terrace below glowing globes of light. It was a gorgeous event for a wonderful young woman, put on by her equally wonderful parents. Everyone had a great time and I know she had the happiest of birthdays.
Enjoy some images of the gorgeous decor and details.
A fabulous card trick prepped by the magician a bit before the party started resulted in a lovely surprise for the birthday girl:
