This was a birthday celebration for our Ceo/Founder Melisa Brown of Lux Lifestyle Event. This was her 36th birthday celebration that was true to our hearts to treat her on this day.
What is something fun you remembered either about the process or the big day?
Melisa missed her friends and family who lived in New York and she was sad that they wouldn’t make the day.. well she was wrong.. All of her friends flew in the night before even her sister… she was extremely surprised that they all came down to celebrate with her.. On the day of the party Melisa had no clue of decor or what was taking place. She was blown away as to the transformation of her pool area..
Anything super unique about the big day?
This celebration was very unique each one of our vendor decided to participate in the planning process. Each vendor wanted to share there appreciation to our ceo in there own way..
florist – Flowers by Sandra did an amazing job with the floral decor it was like a mini wedding celebration as she describes it.
Cake – Lux Cakery what can I say Myriam Charles also known as Mimi.. made Melisa cake to match her invitation to the T.. it was so amazing her guests loved it and so did she…
Lux Team – As always did our thing we made sure to represent Melisa style and unique personality in her decor vision..
Any tips you would share with others planning an event?
When planning an event for a client or family or friend it is always best to keep an open line of communication with all parties involved.. make sure everyone is on the same page and you and your team have organized the planning process to the T.
