Feature: Glam Birthday Party - Nightclub VIP Style

We're so thrilled to be featured on Hostess With The Mostess today for a very VIP birthday party from this past summer. HWTM is one of our all time favorite blogs, so today is a very big day for us here in the Bliss Wedding & Event Design offices! Thanks so much Jenn for featuring us today!

Take a peek!

If your 21st birthday didn’t look like this, don’t feel bad… mine didn’t either!
=) But that doesn’t mean we can’t ooh and aah over the absolutely stunning florals, glam crystal chandeliers, and cool “restaurant-turned-nightclub” atmosphere from Arielle’s party… and dream about our own milestone birthday (or wedding, or anniversary, or _______ ) being quite so fabulous!

Bliss Weddings & Events (Columbus, OH) transformed the Sushi Rock restaurant location into a “VIP club experience” for this event. They even constructed a club-style “cabana” around the sushi bar! And I seriously can’t stop staring at the gorgeous floral arrangementstall & colorful, lush beauties blooming throughout the party… They’re all fantastic, but these have my attention in particular:

The Experience:

“Birthday girl Ari wanted to completely transform Sushi Rock restaurant into a VIP club experience for her guests. We opted to do a private dinner for the family prior to the “club” opening.


The doors opened at 10pm and the party went on until 2am! In true club fashion, guests were able to reserve private VIP booths and bottle service prior the party.”


The Decor
Our color palette was made up of red, tiffany blue, black and white and we had to be mindful in how the colors would look in the already red & black room. The best way to keep the colors looking sophisticated was to the pair reds and blacks together and the tiffany blues & whites together.



Our goal for the decor was to read chic and urban. Sushi Rock allowed us to remove EVERY piece of furniture and d├ęcor they owned so we could transform it! However, we wanted to preserve some of the restaurant’s uniqueness, so we accented the large sushi bar in the middle of the room in a way that both fit Ari’s style and maintained Sushi Rock’s vibe.



Entertainment was important to Arielle and was needed to ensure guests had a great time. An amazing DJ was necessary to make the party hoppin’ and DJ Bandcamp fit the bill perfectly! We also brought in TWO live performances to keep the energy up. First to hit the stage was Yung LA followed by the talented Wiz Khalifa. The guests went crazy for it, even the NFL and NBA players in the attendance that night!”

Absolutely gorgeous! It turned out amazing how you turned the restaurant into what looks like a night club. To make the birthday girl and her closest friends feel truly VIP, you should try using "vip" wristbands. That way, they are easily identified and would be given access quickly.
