Today we are sharing a sneak peek of a 40th Birthday Bash designed and coordinated by Events by L.
It was a very fun and festive event to celebrate Brian’s 40th on the couple’s private farm residence in Bull Valley, IL.
We had so much fun creating the design for this venue which featured various lounge and seating areas throughout, three bar spaces, a barn turned club area, and yard games, as well as creating customized signage, and coordinating for this event, we couldn’t wait to get back the professional pictures to share with you.
Upon our initial meeting with the clients the residence there was no question we would be using a gift wagon, rather than a gift table. This rustic, vintage, wagon we found was the perfect choice for the job.
Since the venue had two bar areas featuring a wide variety of beverage selections, as well as two signature cocktails, it was important to us to have a menu present so that the bartenders would not be tied up listing off the different choices, but were able to keep busy serving drinks.
We knew it was going to be a very hot and humid Illinois day and the canoe beer/water tub was just perfect for guests to grab a cold one of their choice freely. We had several galvanized tubs full of ice and beverages scattered around the various party areas we had created so that guests could remain hydrated throughout the day.
The above pictures are just a couple that we snapped during the setup hours. The following were taken by our friends at Big Hatt Gourmet who provided the food for this fabulous event. You can check out more of their pictures over on their blog. Be forewarned, you will drool. The food was ahhhmaaazing!!!! Two words – BACON BRITTLE! YUMMM!!!!!
That’s it for the sneak peek! We can’t wait to share more details of the decor, favors, hangover kits, food, and entertainment planning that we featured at the bash!
