Theme: Coastal Mediterranean
Setting: an evening of cocktails, food and music at private home by the sea
Decorations: create old world coastal charm using blue & white patterned linens on food tables, blue napkins, colorful china and toss pillows on the floor for extra seating. Flowers may include succulents and/or simple white flowers in glass vases adorned with stones or beach glass. Make liberal use of candles & lanterns as lighting.
Food: passed appetizers and small plate stations with a mediterranean flavor (ie: dolmas, falafel, hummus, lamb, filo wrapped chicken, tabbouleh and other salads, etc). Consider a traditional birthday cake for dessert iced in fondant with blue, bronze pattern detailing, and include a few traditional desserts like baklava or cheese & fruits such as pears, figs and grapes. drinks: cocktail service including a special champagne bar area (with bottles in blue glass ice buckets or other accents of blue).
Favors: jordan almonds are a traditional greek favor and can be wrapped up in delicate packaging with paper labels.
Other: a greek band for dancing and background music during cocktails & dinner.
