An 80th Birthday in The Hollywood Hills
Thursday, October 16th, 2014 | By Rosalie Iannelli
The vibrant and incredible Elaine celebrated her 80th birthday in style with an event that encompassed who she is and the energy she brings to every aspect of her life.
Elaine’s party was hosted by her son at his beautiful home in the West Hollywood hills, which provided incredible views of the Los Angeles city skyline – the perfect backdrop for this momentous occasion.
Elaine is a huge Frank Sinatra fan and she wanted her birthday party to have an old Hollywood vibe with food, drinks and music inspired by the era. Guests were given a preview of what was to come with the invitations, which included Elaine’s favourite Frank Sinatra quote.
When guests arrived at the party, they had a Frank Sinatra-esque singer playing the piano and serenading them all night. Elaine’s favourite colours are pink and orange, so they were integrated into every element of the styling from the florals, paper goods, candles and even the signature cocktails. White and gold were also worked into the palette to bring an element of elegance to the occasion.
