A stylish birthday breakfast

A birthday breakfast for a loving, and much loved, mother & grandmother at Royal Prince Edward Yacht Club, styled by catherine & grace

{the venue}

We recently styled a birthday breakfast for a gorgeous Eastern Suburbs women, held at her husband’s club, The Royal Prince Edward Yacht Club in Point Piper.  Our guest of honour had almost eighty women celebrate with her.  Guests enjoyed a celebratory champagne with their breakfast, which was catered by the yacht club {with Iggys bread added on special request} and styled by catherine & grace {with a big thanks to the birthday girl and her friend for helping with the flowers}.70th birthday image 12013-12-12 - 70th birthday BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace082013-12-12 - 70th birthday BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace33{the styling}

The birthday girl wanted simple and clean with bright pops of colour on white linen.  We used kraft card for the invites and place cards and added colour blocked hydrangea heads in rectangular vases to the centre of each table.70th birthday image 22013-12-12 - 70th birthday BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace0270th birthday image 32013-12-12 - 70th birthday BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace032013-12-12 - 70th birthday BLOG - copyright Catherine Wilson for catherine & grace1470th birthday image 4{the food}
