16 IS SWEET: Caitlyn's Glam Party

February 15, 2013

16 IS SWEET was the theme and the JPC Event Group and GARNISH Event Design teams had a FABULOUS time creating all of the unique details that went into this Glam Party celebration for our client Caitlyn.

From start to finish no detail was left unattended to… what were some of our favorite details you ask?  glittery french fry cones, the beverage bookcase, custom food t-shirts worn by the staff, a full range of FUN photobooth props, the red carpet with a glam ribbon wall entrance, glo stick necklaces and bracelets, sequin linens, 600 helium balloons on the ceiling, lounge seating, AMAZING florals, and above all– THE CANDY DISPLAY!  so basically– We. Loved. Every. Little. Detail!

Caitlyn lives outside of the city in a rural area that had little to offer in the way of an event venue space.  So we TRANSFORMED one!



The evening began with Caitlyn’s arrival chauvered in her family’s black tahoe…complete with JPC “Security!”  Walking in on a rose petal lined red carpet, through the wall of glittery ribbons…  and the fun exploded from there.

Chef Rohn and the JPC staffers {dressed in custom “foodie t-shirts} created a popcorn mixology station with a variety of gourmet toppings served up in mini boxes hand decorated with wasi tape, a cotton candy station with orange and pink cotton candy {of course!}, hand carried teen favorites like mac n cheese cupcakes, pulled pork sliders and mini burgers, french fries in glittery paper cones, mini cotton candy explosion ice cream cones, and hand crafted chocolate and oreo milkshake shots.

Robert Pfeifer of Pifemaster Productions created a lively atmosphere for the guests while they danced under 600 orange and hot pink helium balloons in the glow of pink and orange uplighting pods.

 A selection of favorite IZZE and Jones Soda beverages were served up on the BEVERAGE BOOKCASE with striped and dotted straws, along with an urn of strawberry infused water to quench the dancers thirst.

A super popular element of the evening was the custom photobooth that JPC created.  Complete with feather boas, a glowing pink dry erase board, pirates hook, chef’s hat, glitter princess crown, scooby doo inspired felt garnishes, moustaches and a chest filled with other fun props there was a line to photo bomb all evening!

The REAL surprise of the night, however, was the unveiling of the Sweet 16 CAR!  DJ Bob was in on the whole surprise and used his best game show host voice to announce that with the gas gift card presented to Caitlyn by her parents she would need……..  A NEW CAR!!!!  You can see the whole juicy reveal by watching Pifemaster’s video HERE!

After the food….the dancing….the posing…..and the big Volvo C70 Convertible surprise….there were still more sweet treats planned for this 16 IS SWEET Glam Party!

Custom M&M’s with Caity’s image, chocolate oreos and pretzels from Peter’s Chocolates in Butler, cake pops and chocolate covered marshmellows created by Chef Rohn of JPC, and a bevy of zingy candies in hot pink and orange– served up with custom tags and a fun mixture of decorated take home bags.

A look at all the details as GARNISH was creating them in our project room……

It was certainly a SWEET night to be 16 for Caitlyn!
