When Sheena contacted me about helping her plan a 40th birthday party for her fiancé, Dax, I was excited to help! I started with a couple of idea mood boards. Option 1 was turning their backyard into a festive hacienda. Option 2 was a private room at Fenton Winery & Brewery.

Which one do you think she chose?


The answer is BOTH! (This is my kinda party girl!)

We arranged for a party bus to pick up all their guests at their home to drive them to Fenton Winery & Brewery. There was historical flooding in the area the day before. But the day of the party was beautiful and sunny!

Back at the house, my team was busy getting things set up for the surprise part 2 celebration! The backyard was too muddy from the rain, so we moved the party to their basement.

Sheena planned an awesome bar set up, complete with custom cocktails!

Everyone had a great time and Dax was so surprised with his birthday celebration!

Christa was amazing! Very professional, super organized, and loved the event set up she did for a surprise 40th birthday party. Highly recommend her and I’d definitely work with her again! She is very kind, calm and on top of things. From planning to execution, everything was just perfect. She absolutely knocked it out of the park. Guests and the birthday boy were truly blown away by the setup. Thank you so much for making it a memorable party!
