Today I would like to share with you one of my most favorite creations!

At the peak of last summer’s season, I had the pleasure of planning and designing an amazing ‘Surprise’ Birthday party for a dear friend of mine, Amanda Ronson-Langer, with her husband, Michael Langer. Super talented, artistic and spiritual genius that she is, Amanda soon took command of her ‘Surprise’ Birthday party and together we created: THE BEST PARTY EVER!

As Amanda was born in 1970, we decided the theme would be a 1970′s costume party. Friends and family were invited to join Amanda’s ‘Grand Flower Power Ball’ celebration by traveling back in time in a ‘Pinkish Time Machine’, with a beautiful ‘Evite’ designed by the very talented graphic designer Sheer Ran. A perfect beginning, 3 creative heads are better than 2 and all was GRAND!

Traveling back in time inspired the concept for the party decor, costumes, food, cocktails and entertainment.

Amanda’s children together with her husband created a great video clip for the party, filmed, produced and directed by Yonatan Ran, Sheer Ran’s brother, and both my cousins too!

The result was a very funny spoof on some 1970′s genre movies such as ‘Charlie’s Angels’ and ‘The Thunderbirds’. Certainly entertaining, watching this video will make you instantly fall in love with the whole family!

YOU HAVE GOT TO WATCH THIS!!!!!  The Search for Lady A

To make space for the 150 plus guests (numbers doubled as rumors spread of the fun to be had), we extended Amanda and Michael’s back garden patio by building a stage that spilled over into the woods behind their house and increased the space dramatically. The stage was covered in synthetic grass, with funky illuminated furniture arranged on either side and a an upper level across the width for the evenings main gig ‘The Groove Redemption Band’.

The party colors, white as base (to match their beautiful home) with bright shades of fuchsia pink, sherbet orange and ruby red; square cocktail tables with comfy leather padded bar chairs, where paired with white leather sofas and very funky illuminated tables and matching lamps in the shape of mushrooms. Feather boa scarves and vinyl cushion covers in those inviting colors, in combination with bright colored gerbera flower bouquets inserted into punctured disco balls, created the setting for the colorful costumes and smiling faces.
