Lauren’s Fruity Fiesta 30th Birthday
Wednesday, June 18th, 2014 | By Rosalie Iannelli
Lauren’s Fruity Fiesta was the 30th birthday to end all 30th birthdays. ‘It was so much fun! I guess it kind of felt like I was spending a night pretending not to be thirty – having tequila shots, messing around in the photobooth, covering myself in temporary tattoos and playing pineapple bowling,’ said Lauren.
The concept started when Lauren decided she wanted to do something colourful for her party. She loved the idea of a Mexican theme, but wanted to make it more relevant to her, so she settled on the general idea of fruity mixed with geometric, and a hint of fiesta ‘of course’.
The theme ‘fruity fiesta’ was all about colour, with a key palette of red, pink, green, yellow and orange. The splash of colour was seen mainly through the handmade bunting, the table runners and the giant confetti balloons, which were complimented by the flowers, fruit and chalkboards. In fact, Lauren tried to incorporate fruit into the night as much as possible, placing fruit on the tables, using fruit tins as vases, serving fruit punches and ice creams, and having fruity temporary tattoos.
Lauren maintains that the main hit on the night was definitely the temporary tattoo station. ‘I’d found some amazing [tattoos] on Etsy, so I contacted the illustrator to see if she’d make some custom designs for me, and they were AMAZING. She did such a good job, and everyone loved them! The favourite was definitely the ‘hardcore’ apple tattoo,’ said Lauren. So scroll down and enjoy what is definitely the most colourful, fun and fruity 30th birthday we’ve ever seen!
