A putting green, a 3D Mapping show, models, and stir fry. We’ll save you the guessing game and just go ahead and tell you what each of these elements have in common—they were all part of best friends Ike and Eric’s 60th birthday celebration!

Upon arrival at 6500 on Cedar Springs, guests relaxed and enjoyed the offerings from two separate bars until—surprise!—drapes were pulled back to reveal the main party room and a musical performance by Simply Irresistible.
From the Food Glorious Food catering stations that featured Shanghai chicken stir fry, halibut tacos, and short rib sandwiches, to the visual feast of DJ and Drummer’s 3D mapping show, party-goers faced no shortage of entertainment or opportunities to nosh throughout the evening.
When a break from the dance floor was needed, some guests lounged in u-shaped banquettes and upholstered car seats custom designed by Stage Works while others enjoyed golf instruction provided by models with Jan Strimple Productions. To reflect Ike and Eric’s love of sports and modern art, additional models were “outfitted” in body paint that was expertly applied by Sharon Hodges to look like Cowboys and Stars jerseys.
Ike and Eric’s custom logo served as the basis of the party’s design, and was developed by Spun Creative Group’s Natalia Saenz to reference their names and date of birth. The unique motif was featured on everything from the event signage to the late-night cones of popcorn and fries guests enjoyed, and served as a constant reminder of the motivation behind this duo’s celebration—60 years of loving life!
Thanks for letting us join in the party, guys!
