{Featured Client Parties} Nick's 50th Lap Celebration


We shared with you some sneak peaks from our NYC trip this past December, and today we want to show you the real deal. This party will keep you drooling for more! One of our favorite clients, Zulema, contacted us to design a Formula 1 Race Car invitation for her partner's 50th Birthday Celebration. Zulema was the Event Stylist (Zueats Events) for this amazing soiree and we worked with her on every graphic detail and more - from custom invitations to the final touches at the actual event.

We started by creating an invitation inspired by a retro Formula 1 poster, but used a photo of the actual birthday boy, Nick, from his racing days.

Zulema packaged the invite in a tri-fold wrap, with a matching envelope seal... she even found flag stamps - so perfect!

The venue was hand-picked by Nick & Zulema... they rented the SoHi room at the brand new Trump Soho Tower. You could see all of New York from every window. (these photos don't really do it justice... the view was unbelievable!)

Zulema picked a geometric eye-catching backdrop to set her table, and we designed the collection around this (and the racing theme)
The Chocolate covered Oreos were made by: Sweeties by KimMoet Champagne favor gifts - sooo good!!!These matching Sugar cookies were made by: The Cookie Jar

Chocolate covered pretzals with race cars made by: PretzalsPleaze
Racing Cake Pops made by: Sweet Shenanigans

Last but not least... the CAKE!!! Race car fondant toppers made by: CraftyRosy

The party was absolutely fabulous and we felt like true stars that evening.... it was a night to remember!

This is so great! You don't often see a grown-up (especially a man's) party so prettily done up. But you did a wonderful job at combining the car racing elements with the cute touches.
