This relaxed bohemian picnic is really something special. And of course this celebration was going to be spectacular—the birthday girl was Naomi of For The Dreamers blog and Instagram, which is full of boho and oh-so beautiful visual delights captured by Naomi.
Naomi says, ‘I wanted to do something a little different for my 30th birthday. I love to throw a party! This was my next project after my wedding and I was so excited to use some amazing Perth Vendors to help me create a magical experience.’
The birthday girl took her friends on a surprise bus trip out to a private pear and apple orchard in the Perth hills, where they found a divine long table to dine at. They spent the afternoon listening to an acoustic guitarist, sipping French champagne and wine whilst grazing on an incredible array of cheese boards.
‘I believe parties about experiences and making special memories you won’t easily forget, I wanted to give my friends an experience,’ says Naomi.
And for those of you looking to throw your own birthday bash, Naomi’s advice is, ‘have fun with it and don’t be afraid to make the effort and do something different—it’s always good to have an element of surprise! Unlike a wedding, birthday can be relaxed with simple styling and still be memorable.’
