Sage's Outdoor Oasis Birthday Party

Outdoor Oasis Birthday Party

Given the inspiration of rubber duckies and a meadow setting by the birthday girl's mother, event designer Melissa Baum created the concept of "Sage's Outdoor Oasis" for her party. Melissa brought out a meadow feel with lovely green garlands, wildflowers, and tree logs in the decor, and two themed tables full of fantastic details. Melissa shared:

"We served both savoury items like party sandwiches, chips, fruits and veggies and sweets like macarons, cupcakes, strawberry mousse shooters and a delicious two tier birthday cake complete with wildflowers and rubber duckies on top. To incorporate the theme, the food elements became 'destinations' in Sage's oasis and were named after common places and spaces you would find outside. Guests visited the 'Veggie Patch' for carrots, 'Chip-stead Falls' for chips, 'The Watering Hole' for some refreshment and 'Donut Hill' for some sweets among others."

Guests enjoyed an afternoon full of yummy eats, rubber ducky inflatables, and listening and dancing to Sage's favorite music. Each guest took some of the party theme home with them in rubber ducky filled favors. Heidi Lau Photography captured all of the fun details, and you can see more over in the full gallery!
