Pittsburgh Event Planner | Roberta's Stylishly 60th Surprise Birthday Celebration

{SHE} has had the pleasure of knowing Roberta for several years and she has always been admired for her sweet personality, warm heart, love for family, + of course her impeccable taste. So when we were asked to plan her surprise 60th birthday party, we knew this definitely needed to be a stylish celebration to match the guest of honor.  Hotel Monaco's rooftop space + Rialto Suite provided the absolute perfect backdrop for this soiree.  With a trendy yet elegant color palette of blush, ivory, rose gold + taupe, the space was decked out with ultra chic linens, lounge furniture, custom pillows, jaw-dropping floral designs + the focal point -- two 9' boxwood walls with a photo montage of Roberta + her favorite people in rose gold frames. Because the details didn't stop just there (because duh -- we are #detailsnobs) guests could reminisce of commemorative events that occurred the year Roberta was born on ivory + rose gold foil cocktail on napkins + enjoy a lengthy list of what made the birthday girl just so so so special on customized acrylic signage.  Also, knowing that coffee flavored ice cream was one of her favorite desserts, it was a no-brainer to serve it in delicate coffee cups made out of chocolate! About 60 (how appropriate!) of her closest family + friends patiently awaited Roberta's arrival, who thought she was simply attending a work event for her son-in-law, Simon.  As she gracefully walked through the doors, thinking nothing of it, she was overwhelmed with wonderful emotion as everyone shouted "Surprise!" Love engulfed the chic space throughout the entire night with tears of happiness, big smiles + loads of laughter.  Skysight Photography images captured every deed + every moment beautifully!
