Have you met Rosy? She is our resident furniture refinisher and keeper of china! Rosy is constantly working her magic to keep our upholstery spotless, and honestly, we don’t know what we would do without her. She sadly lost her husband to COVID last summer, so we wanted to do our best to support her by hosting a small birthday bash for her daughter Stephanie’s 15th birthday. Both Stephanie and her brother have come in throughout the years to lend a hand, and we always love having them! To celebrate Stephanie’s quinceañera, Tanya from the Makeup by Ana B team got Stephanie all dolled up, and we staged a photoshoot in The Vault at Something Vintage Rentals. Stephanie posed for photos in front of one of our fave backdrops that we had decked out with a beautiful flower installation by Sweet Root Village. Following the more formal photos, we broke out the confetti and enjoyed the cutest cake from Fluffy Thoughts Cakes.
A couple of years ago, Wale Ariztos commissioned us to create a backdrop inspired by the Vanity Fair Oscars Party portraits for a wedding he was shooting. We knew the Calvert’s corner photo booth design would be perfect for photos, so we broke it out for the occasion and paired it with our Victoria Cream Settee! Sweet Root Village created an over-the-top floral installation complete with white orchids, and we finished everything off with a combination of our Maya and Ramesses rugs.
If you’ve admired our upholstered furniture, it’s Rosy’s handiwork that brought it back to life and keeps it looking beautiful! We owe so much to Rosy for all of her hard work, so we were super excited to host this celebration for Stephanie’s quinceañera. She truly keeps SVR running, and we are beyond grateful to call both Rosy and Stephanie a part of the SVR fam. How gorgeous is this mother and daughter portrait?! We love you, Stephanie & Rosy! 😘
Following the formal portraits, we headed outside for a quick photo op in front of our wall of rainbow doors! Stephanie posed with some giant gold balloons we picked up for the occasion, and then we brought her back inside so we could shower her with confetti! (It wouldn’t be an SVR party without confetti… 🎉)
After we got our confetti fix, we dug into this super cute cake that Fluffy Thoughts Cakes made for Stephanie! The pink frosting and rosette design of the cake was so pretty, so we wanted to keep things simple with our Adelia Clear Cake Stand. We displayed the cake on one of our new Bloomingdale Cocktail Tables, and slices were served on our Amalfi Dessert Plates. Obvi, we tossed in some more confetti for good measure!
Happy birthday, Stephanie! We love you & wish you all the best in your upcoming year. 💗
