Katerina’s Sweet Sixteen was a special event for her entire family. People flew from across the globe to attend! Katerina is Italian, and visits St Louis every summer to see her grandparents and aunts and uncles. Her mom flew in from Rome as a surprise, and Katerina had no idea her event was anything more than just a dinner reservation. Can you imagine being 16 and walking into this?
Kat’s mom brought these favors from Italy, a traditional gift for birthdays. The white lanterns decorated the table and had a silver metallic handwritten KM (the birthday girl’s initials) Dulcis XVI (Sweet Sixteen – in Latin, a language that the birthday girl studies in school).
The server was happy to rock the birthday tshirt!
It was based on the invitation that was printed on shimmer cardstock and sent in a pink envelope lined with gunmetal silver shimmer.
Kat arrived after being brought to the venue in a black limo (another surprise we coordinated) and saw her private room and her family. Hugs and tears commence!
