What better way to celebrate entering your thirties, than an ode to all the good times you had in your twenties! Prepare to be emerged into a speakeasy, back alley gambling, cabaret evening! When I was thinking of what I was going to do for Mackenzie’s 30th, I knew it had to be BIG…right? I started researching, pinterest-ing and sketching the vision of this event in my my notebook. Which companies that would fit this theme perfectly and make it all come together seamlessly.
Make sure you scroll all the way down to see each of these amazing companies, decor ideas for your own twenties themed event, the most delicious desserts and a link to a fun DIY of a fairly easy ‘mugshot’ photo-booth. Below is a full collection of the shoot, styled by me and a true labor of love. I hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did putting it together and seeing it come to life!

The Decor for this was on point solely because of two unreal boss ladies – Valerie from Pretty Things Rentals and Kayla from The Jubilee Collection, both of which I have worked with before and each time they wow me with their ability to completely capture a vision and run with it alongside you as the creator.
