Stephanie’s Surprise 40th Birthday Party

Allen, TX

For Stephanie’s Surprise 40th Birthday Party, Significant Events took the traditional carnival theme and transformed it from a kid’s party to an adult carnival spectacular! A custom digital invitation and logo created a great buzz for guests before the party even started! During the party itself, we offered fun carnival themed stations such as a gourmet popcorn station with a variety of toppings as well as a Champagne Sno Cone station that guests couldn’t get enough of! Stephanie’s favorite local barbecue was served, and who could forget the cake at a birthday party! A gorgeous topsy-turvy cake was served, which guests couldn’t stop taking pictures of! To entertain the guests throughout the evening, a strolling comedian and magician played games with the guests, a Flipbook station was available where guests could dress up and act goofy for 6 seconds of filming, and a Real World style video confessional booth was set up where guests could tell their favorite stories and secrets about Stephanie. The entire look and feel of the party was fun, colorful, and entertaining!

I couldn’t be more pleased with the pre-event planning! I felt extremely comfortable with Emily taking care to make my wife’s surprise birthday party a tremendous success. I was impressed with everything from diligent follow up to creative suggestions. On the day of the event, she came early, worked extremely hard to get the house ready and handled a few unexpected issues with ease. I was really able to enjoy the party without worries and had her taking care of anything and everything before, during and after the event. Emily was a true gem, coming to me periodically to check on things and keep the activities moving. I will definitely hire Significant Events for a future event and have already recommended you to a friend. Thanks for making Stephanie’s surprise 40th birthday party an event she’ll remember forever!
