Oh how we loved serving and surprising one of our faithful clients in a whole new way through a surprise birthday party. The Lodge at Vail was the perfect spot to host a lovely evening full of great food, dancing, and a warm ambiance for a couple hundred birthday party guests. The fun took place throughout Vail, as guests went on an “Amazing Race,” gathering clues and puzzle pieces at various stops before arriving at their final destination for the evening. Brinton Studios captured the memorable evening, and Statice Floral made sure the room was adorned with beauty. Elite Productions provided the lighting, productions and photo booth, and Party Crashers kept the dance floor hopping well into the night. We loved celebrating you alongside family and friends, dear Sara!
