Over the weekend I got to style a party that I have been working on this past month. It was exciting to plan a surprise because we had to come up with everything, including the menu, without the guest of honor and their input. We went with two of his favorite things: scotch and cigars. And the rest fell into place after that.
The scotch and cigars bar was the main focus at the party and this vintage wooden bar stole the show.
These old cigar tins helped house and decorate the bar.
The antique glass decanters looked beautiful when the light hit them and again as it got dark out surrounded by votive candles.
The chalkboard printed signs were perfect in each section of the party.
Welcome to the festivities.
A second bar was added with beer, wine and vodka and the 3-tier stand of assorted fruit was ideal for providing a pop of color and for garnishing custom cocktails.
Six different kinds of beer were offered and all went fast.
These marquee lights are always a favorite at all pumpkin + rose events.
A quiet shot of the bar during set-up.
Pulled pork sliders and buttermilk fried chicken with mini waffles and maple syrup were just a few of the awesome items that complemented this theme.
Clear cut menus are great for buffets, too, not just sit-downs so that the guests know what is available and in front of them.
String lights were hung around the perimeter.
Black and white on the tables, perfect for a masculine party and classic color combo makes small additions, like potted succulents, stand out. And these chalkboard table runners easily allow the guests to leave a personal message for the guest of honor.
Winding down after a successful event.
