Fiftieth birthday parties may have been synonymous with “Over the Hill” signs and all-black decor in the past, but we are thrilled to announce that those days are behind us! Take this recent fête, for example. Décor in shades of gold and pink were selected in lieu of ebony. Guests lounged on day beds accented by patterned throw pillows while enjoying delicious bites and sips. Floral arrangements bursting with coral and yellow blooms sat atop everything from accent tables to a boxwood-covered bar labeled with custom signage. If you have a major milestone coming up, take a few cues from these colorful hues and throw a party that’s focused on celebrating life rather than mourning how quickly the clock seems to tick—no black balloons required!
