Romantic Vintage Library: Mama at 70

The 17th of October was a very special event for me because it was our mom’s 70th birthday. I also took this opportunity to style here dessert table and her centerpieces.

It seems that event styling is slightly growing in me. I am no way an expert but I am now having a big appetite for it. I am offering it for family and friends. And I admit, I am really enjoying it.

We chose a romantic vintage vibe because it captures my mother’s life. She had lead a beautiful and colorful life with a big chunk of it spent of it travelling for work in university library.

Here is a photo walkthrough of her birthday:

Her simple dessert table.
A mix and match of cupcake holders with books and square planters give a vintage unkempt vibe. The asters also makes it feel vintage.
When a cake is beautifully made, it stands out despite all the other elements.
The world is revolutionized by beautiful, dainty things
Romanticism comes from deep connection with your creativity
Grandeur of center pieces is not only when you put too many elements, it is how you combine to make a coherent theme.
My sisters labor of love, a small token for our mom’s friends.
She deserves this night and all the rest of the world’s happiness.
My daughter is her best buddy right now.
