An 18th birthday is certainly cause for celebration and this glamorous black-tie party in Hamburg, Germany was no exception! The event sought to bring new life to a classic theme by playing on the old-time masquerade with futuristic touches. Dinner was held at a richly decorated brasserie that transported guests into a luxe French scene with playful black and white checkered floors and deeply colored wooden tables. Golden finishes like tall candlesticks and playful balloons incorporated a brightness into the decor that made these simple table settings even more chic. Flapper-like showgirls arrived at the end of dinner in head to toe beads and sparkles, ready to kick off the dancing that awaited in the ballroom at the modern Tortue Hotel.
Music and dancing by unique performers was held in a ballroom that dripped with silver and gold shimmer and shine. The entertainer’s costumes were adorned with silver LED lights, diamond covered cage helmets, and chrome studded finishes. Their technologic take on masquerade masks created a new, youthful twist for this event. Balloons painted with the birthday girl Merle’s portrait covered an entire wall with silhouettes and playful patterning. Our black invitations with gold baroque flourishes set the tone for the shining ornamentation that was carried throughout the entire event. Colorful lights pointed across the dance floor covered in a larger than life custom logo that mirrored Merle's invitation and encouraged guests to dance the night away!
