Nothing like celebrating with 750 family and life-long friends!

This elegant 50th Anniversary celebration was held at the National Orange Show Events Center – the perfect backdrop for our lovely couple to renew their vows as our groom kissed his bride under a shower of confetti.

Zombie-Themed Birthday Celebration

The backyard of a client’s home was transformed into The Walking Dead, also known as the Zombie Apocalypse. Guests entered via the red carpet and took photos at the step and repeat which featured a mix of zombies and a happy birthday message to the guest of honor. They were greeted by servers and characters dressed as zombies, including a quarantine zone where zombies were trapped in a barb wire fence with “Biohazard” signage surrounding it.

An open tent structure with barbed wire fencing and military netting served as the “safe house.” Dark, floral centerpieces sat in vases of “brain” noodles and various zombie props were scattered throughout the event including severed limbs and gravestones. Blood stained furniture and a blood splattered dance floor rounded out the décor.

The theme carried through with the menu- Bloody Brain Red Velvet Cupcakes and Severed Finger Sugar Cookies were a big hit. Once the sun went down, all the newly bitten zombies danced the night away to 80s Music, including Madonna and Michael Jackson impersonators.

“Jonathan Reeves, Cora Kaplan, event manager at IEC, their in-house team and their creative partners really … for want of a better term … dug into the graveyard sensibility. From the moment they stepped on the blood red carpet entrance complete with a step and repeat, to seeing the cage full of zombie’s who were “quarantined” in  barbed wire fence that read “Biohazard,” the approximately 70 guests knew they had died and gone to zombie event theme heaven. As did the event team.” – Design Dawgs
