I had never seen the show Sons of Anarchy, so when my client wanted to throw her husband a "Sons" themed 40th birthday party, I had a lot of homework to do! It took a little bit of thinking to figure out how to bring such a raw, gritty theme into a remarkably beautiful home, but with a few tweaks, we pulled it off!
Guests entered into the dramatic two-story foyer and found a collection of black and gold ombre painted wine and liquor bottles with custom labels serving as candle holders amidst funky floral arrangements detailed with pockets chains and leather cords. And speaking of leather... that is indeed a black leather tablecloth!
The cocktail napkins were the perfect canvas for our Sons inspired catchphrase for the evening "Fear the Eich" (using the birthday-boy's nickname) and for a classic quote from the show's main character.
The Anarchy symbol was incorporated in the number 40 throughout the party, including on these custom barrel matches which accessorized the cigar and scotch cart.
Marcia Selden Catering did an amazing job with the food and this over-the-top cake!
Thanks to Robert Wagner for the fab photos!
