Being a flower power child of the 60s, Karryn thought that there was no better way to celebrate turning 60 than by throwing a 60s themed birthday party at her home in Brisbane. To ensure it was an event that she and her guests would never forget, Karryn’s vision was to re-create an experience that would take them all back and allow them to relive the psychedelic hippie days for just one night! Alicia from Perfectly Sweet Lolly Buffets worked closely with Karryn to style the event, drawing on inspiration from the imagery, music and cultural changes sweeping across the USA that defined the era. ‘The theme just came together so nicely! Alicia was fantastic to work with and with her help I could relive the heyday of my teens being the age of Aquarius! I couldn’t have had it any other way,’ said Karryn. The lolly buffet was beautifully styled in bright, psychedelic colours, offering colored cupcakes, blue combi van cookies, marshmallow peace signs, panacottas with yellow macaron smiley faces, and a vibrant birthday cake which stayed true to the theme. A Woodstock Music Festival banner and a giant peace sign created out of multi-coloured flowers helped set a chilled out mood for the evening. Persian rugs and Moroccan leather poufs were laid throughout the rooms and Karryn’s collection of old records, table runners and pillows, hand painted bottles for candles and fresh flowers added the finishing touches the styling. It was a night of great catch-ups, sharing old stories, laughing and making new memories that Karryn will never forget. Planning your own 60s themed bash?
