Middle Eastern 50th Birthday Party


This summer I planned my Dad’s 50th Birthday party, a casual gathering that took place in his lovely country home.

I transformed the garden into a Middle Eastern chill out space, using various sensory elements and DIY décor.

The Camper Van was also transformed into the ‘Camper Bar’, featuring a number of DIY cocktails.

The scene was set with live music from Nirakar, a function band whose Indo-Jazz fusion music made the party extra special.

I also made the event as sustainable as possible by reusing decorations, using compostable cups, plates and cutlery and promoting recycling.
