Ronnie & Yanique
ANNIVErsary celebration in montego bay, Jamaica
This has to be by far the most inspiring event An Intimate Affair has designed. The client was looking to host an event that would bring their family and friends together to celebrate their 10 year wedding anniversary. The theme and attire for the main event was Afro-Caribbean. We incorporated an earthy touch with a pop of color by utilizing burlap tablecloths and sashes and African print fabric to carry off the Afro-Caribbean theme. The atmosphere was simply awe-inspiring. Words can hardly describe the evening. You had to be there.
Alana's Harlem Nights
21st Birthday Celebration, Washington D.C., USA
Alana said, “Aunty Mikki, I want to have a Harlem Nights theme birthday party.” I said, “ok, let the planning begin.” Knowing very little about that era we had to do some research. We learned about flapper dresses, the Jazz Age and Speakeasy bars. Incorporating all of what we discovered about the 1920’s, dinner was held at a Jazz & blues restaurant in downtown D.C. where all guests were asked to dress in their 1920’s attire. It was fabulous! To make the event more personable pictures of the birthday girl were displayed on the fireplace at the restaurant and we played a fun game highlighting 21 things about Alana. The after party was held at a Speakeasy bar just a couple blocks from the restaurant where the birthday girl ordered her “first” cocktail. It was a night to remember.
Kadian and Carlos' Wedding
Kadian and Carlos came to An Intimate Affair with a request for an intimate wedding. This is our specialty so we went to work! We created a setting that allowed for 60 guests to witness a beautiful ceremony and celebrate with the lovely couple. Calla lilies with orange tipped roses gave this wedding a cheery yet elegant touch.
Imani's 21st Birthday Party
21st birthday celebration, Atlanta, GA
Can we say, “Diva!” Imani wanted her 21st birthday to be red carpet style. An Intimate Affair delivered with class and of course, made it so much fun. Imani invited her family and closest friends to this special event where they posed with style on the red carpet. To carry off the theme, we designed the event with the colors pink and black with a touch of gold. The food labels specially designed by An Intimate Affair were created with the diva and shoe lover in mind. Each label had a stylish shoe & feather with a sparkly gold background. The DJ played their favorite hits and the bartender served up tasty cocktails.
80’s Style Birthday Bash
Owner and founder of An Intimate Affair not only designs parties for clients, she also hosts a themed party every other year just for fun. This particular year, she celebrated her 38th birthday, 1980’s style. This theme evolved from her love of 80’s music and fashion. Bright colors, Michael Jackson, record player and jacks were some highlights of the party. She even incorporated one of her fondest memories from her childhood, a radio flyer tricycle. With a live band and DJ this party had everyone dancing till the sunset.
