“DJ themed 13th Birthday Party and for Clair’s son and two of his good friends”
Finding inspiration on the web a a teenage boys birthday party was almost impossible. The brief from the boys was: must be fun, funky and have cool music and venue. We hired a groovy local cafe and three 15 year old dj’s to get the party started.With a little artistic direction, my son and his friends spent a sunny spring afternoon painting the backdrop for the dessert table, with the obligatory paint fight thrown in. I wanted to include a small dessert table, and make it bright and fun, whilst being careful not to be girly or kiddy. Thirteen is an important step away from childhood, so I wanted to include things that were reminiscent of childhood whilst still being teen-friendly and quick and easy for the the 60+ kids to get their sweet fix, with a funky edge. Red, yellow and orange jelly cups and swirly lollipops, with a towering topsy turvy cake were the perfect answer. The cake was an absolute labour of love (and stress) for me… countless hours of design, baking and creating – an I loved every minute. The cake included elements that the boys enjoy such as music and longboarding, or they thought were cool, like a graffiti wall. (This complimented the party invites). The table needed to look great in the early/lighter part of the evening, and into the night, when the lights dimmed and the disco took off”
