For Tatiana’s 22nd birthday (HA – more like 32!) we decided a boho beach birthday would be the perfect way to safely ring in the festivities with closest friends. With her favorite color palette being incorporated into the design, we knew exactly which pieces we were eyeing for the tabletop. Signature Party Rentals had the perfect blush and white heirloom plates as well as their new white dipped gold flatware. Third + Park provided the most breathtaking dried floral centerpieces to add texture and a soft, lush element.
Next came figuring out what guests were going to sit on! Blankets were the initial option, but then realizing that we wanted to elevate the look we opted for gorgeous pillows from Made With Jetaime Events! No boho beach birthday is complete without those Moroccan wedding pillows, are we right?! Just enough height for the low picnic table so you weren’t bumping knees – win win!
Next up those killer woven glasses and placemats. Once again our girl Alex at Third + Park came in clutch with these tabletop rentals that really sealed the table deal. And to top it off, she even added little souvenir ‘bouquets’ for each guest with a hand dyed torn silk ribbon.
Some advice for those of you looking to plan your own boho beach birthday – scope the beach ahead! We got there early to make sure we had the perfect spot facing the water with ample parking. We also made sure restrooms were nearby and that there were no stairs to maneuver with all the rentals being brought in. Guests supplied their own potluck dish and drinks and we brought a cooler packed with ice! Which leads us to the last pro tip: ICE! Buy more than you need and definitely rent cute umbrellas (which we did!) to shade everyone. This was so fun to put together and we can’t wait for more sunny picnics in our future!
Xx, Chelsea + Tatiana
