A little party ain't hurt nobody

Stems Fresno took this client's beautiful home in Clovis, CA back in time to the 1920s for this Great Gatsby themed party! Gold sequins, black satin, and crystals, crystals, crystals were abundant for this night extravaganza, celebrating a 50th birthday. Guests entered the party by walking the client's extra long driveway which we transformed into a fabulous red carpet, ending with a roaring 20's pick up truck for themed photo shoots, where they were greeted with hand passed champagne.

A “blacked-out” tent frame provided the perfect ceiling for three, 5-foot crystal chandeliers and string light bulbs. Glamorous velvet and metallic furniture filled the corners of the tent and surrounding lawn areas of Mother Nature’s ballroom. The classic black and white checkered dance floor was flooded with guests dressed to the nines all night long!


Guest tables were laden with gold sequined linens and adorned with sky-touching white ostrich plumes, dripping in crystals and surrounded with lush hydrangeas, dahlias, roses and orchids. The Chameleon dinner club styled chairs were the perfect match for these “Hollywoodesque” tablescapes. This party was not missing any of the glitz and glam, art deco designs or chic black, white and gold colors of the era! 

Lounge & Seating

The live band rocked the night away…but nothing was as spectacular as the fireworks display that ensued as a surprise to the birthday boy right after he blew out his birthday cake candles on his art deco cake. The confetti guns laced the ceiling with gold, black and white streamers for guests to dance into the wee hours of the morning. As the night wined down, guests were sent off with custom gift favors of splits of champagne atop crystals in golden cylinders.

A royal night for all!
