James Bond Moroccan Birthday Party

One of the most exciting things about being an event planner is getting to work with a blank canvas where you can create magic. I was given the wonderful opportunity to create a fabulous Moroccan James Bond themed 50th Birthday Party for a client in Orange County. 

The dinner was taking place in the client's ten car garage, which we had to turn into a magical Moroccan tent. With the help of my fabulous vendors, we started layering the floor with Moroccan rugs from Rrivreworks and draped the entire garage ceiling to floor with fabulous pops of orange and gold from BAM.

One of the most exciting elements of the design was using the client's opaque garage door, which retracted to reveal a stage where the band played. We back lit the garage door to create a flame effect designed by The Lighter Side. We had sexy Bond Girl silhouettes attached to the garage door created by Pop Ink. This created a mystery for the guests during dinner as they weren't sure whether the silhouettes were real girls or not. When the garage doors opened, we in fact had Bond Girl dancers in same pose.

Starting with the blank garage canvas and turning it into my client's dream Moroccan palace was exhilarating. Our vendors are the most important people when putting a design together of this scale.
