We feature a lot of kids’ parties, but we can’t forget the grown-ups–they deserve a lavish, extravagant celebration too–especially for a milestone birthday! Our friends at M&J Kreations, truly went all out for this tropical glam 40th birthday party. Just looking at the pictures, you will feel transported to the tropics with all the lush greenery and foliage. Tropical themed parties can end up kitschy, but this party is all glitz and glam. Black and gold details give off a retro vibe, and you know this is one special birthday girl!
Palm Trees Swaying in the Breeze
The venue holds its own with plenty of thick green vines, a bougainvillea bursting with flowers, and planted palms with twinkling lights. But the tall tropical centerpieces full of giant monstera leaves and lush palm fronds evoke a feeling of being surrounded by palm trees.
Christina at M&J Kreations is such an expert with all the littlest details. But when you break down the table decor, the details are fairly simple but executed so well. This party proves that with details, it’s quality over quantity.
Be like a pineapple–stand tall and wear a crown on your head! These golden pineapples are the perfect addition to this tropical glam 40th birthday party decor. Votive candles on the centerpieces are a simple yet impactful addition when they’re en masse and perfectly lined up.
Using a gorgeous dining table such as this black glass and gold one, mean that you don’t need linens to cover it up.
The coordinating side tables bring some light to the party decor with their elegant tropical linens and white and gold Chiavari chairs.
Tropical Treat Table
The kids can’t have all the fun when it comes to a treat table! The neon backdrop adds to the retro but glamorous vibe. With all the lush tropical foliage, you don’t even notice that flowers aren’t being used in the decor.
A sleek dessert table is a perfect match for this party. Acrylic stands, golden cake plates, and a unique birthday cake–complete with a gold-foil tier–combine all the design aspects expertly.
Are you thinking about throwing your own tropical glam party? These spray-painted pineapples are a simple and inexpensive DIY party project.
Laser imprinted coconut scream decadence. I bet the drink inside is tasty–tropical drinks always taste better out of a coconut!
A little gold leaf on a cake pop goes a long way in elevating a basic dessert.
And what is a treat table without some personalized desserts?
