At Morgan Events, we believe in celebrating life to the fullest. How many days go by so quickly that we forget to stop and pay attention to all the details that make life grand? One of the best ways to celebrate life is to start with the milestones. That’s right, we’re talking about birthdays. Birthdays don’t have to be about getting older; they can be celebrations of life’s little journeys that we achieve along the way. Remember the excitement of turning 16 and finally getting a driver’s license? Or turning 30 and realizing the pieces of your life are falling nicely into place? Well, we salute you! Celebrate those birthday milestones! Might we suggest a destination birthday bash? Our client Darren (whose wedding we planned back in 2014) decided years in advance that when it came time for his 40th birthday, he wanted an all out celebration with his nearest and dearest in the City of Light. That’s right, buckle your seatbelts, we’re taking you to Paris!

The theme for Darren’s Parisian Birthday Bash was Ready, Set Jet! We captured the travel element of the event in a very simple phrase. We then set ourselves to task planning and executing the event from start to finish, and managed local logistics for traveling guests. The design theme was fun and fabulous, just like Darren. Colors and patterns were inspired by the 1970’s and specifically, the fashions of Emilio Pucci. Our concept took a modern twist to a retro design.

So, are you ready to jet? Check out all the details below and get inspired to plan your next destination birthday bash.

Special thanks to our amazing client, Darren & Brian and to the team that made Darren’s Parisian 40th Birthday Bash a most memorable celebration.
