Boho Beach Birthday Party Inspired By Tulum
Amanda’s birthday bash wishlist included an all-out boho chic soiree with her friends on the beach in Tulum. But with a bundle of joy on the way in just a month or so, traveling to Tulum wasn’t exactly in the cards…so we brought the Tulum vibes to her!
Settling on a beautiful sandy spot at the beach in Playa del Rey, our imagination ran wild with dreams of Tulum.
A light-weight fabric canopy covered guests from the sun and created a relaxing, breezy atmosphere. The palapa style thatched umbrellas from Bob Gail Events added a Mexican-inspired touch. To fulfill Amanda’s boho vibe and vision, we enlisted Circa Rentals for their beautiful selection of rugs, pillows, poufs and a special peacock chair for the birthday girl. Floor seating around a central communal table allowed guests to mingle together while enjoying the party’s fresh bites.
Speaking of bites, Heirloom provided a delicious spread of carne asada and grilled fish tacos, Mexican bean salad, cilantro rice and fresh salsa. We arranged the spread in a set of rustic wooden bowls from Crate and Barrel. Heirloom also brought us a glass frescas in summer fruit flavors. Amanda created all of the food and beverage signage in the style of a rustic Tulum beachside restaurant.
Lush, tropical-inspired florals from Hello Honey Flower Co. added the perfect amount of festive color and greenery. The fresh fruit centerpiece was a riff of the agua fresca flavors that included watermelon and citrus. Borrowed BLU linen napkins in a neutral tone balanced out the colorful rugs and flowers at the table. Amanda designed custom cocktail napkins and swizzle sticks that were produced by For Your Party.
The final perfect beach treat was provided by Si Paletas, who brought a variety of fresh fruit popsicles. Birds of a Feather captured the day in their beautiful California style. Happy birthday to Amanda!
