For me, planning this event felt almost like a riddle. How was I supposed to create a personal event for a man that I had never even met? A man by the name of Gaby. Gaby’s wife decided to plan a surprise birthday party for her husband; a wordly man, who is modest, and loving. She had asked that I design the space according to his personality, and just one month later, their backyard transformed into a beautiful venue dictated by soft and natural lines. The larger space was planned along couches and seating platforms, which, placed together, felt like a puzzle that complimented their garden’s natural color and form.
The cocktail hour was inside their home, and felt intimate and warm. The evening kicked off with a speech from Gaby’s loving wife, and after her came many of his friends – men of service and government.
