A two day birthday extravaganza

What a way to celebrate 70 years alive! We were called in to help put together an amazing celebration to celebrate author and Northland resident Ilchi Lee's birthday. It was all about celebrating his work in the community and abroad with a two day celebration at his property, Haruru Falls Earth Citizen's Retreat, a stunning setting surrounded by water, bush and a great view of the falls.


We worked with Top Hire Tents, Belltech, Wild Ivy, Cheers Party Hire and Alfie's Spit Roast, to create two unique events over two days to celebrate his birthday.

Day 1 was a VIP celebration so we created an atmosphere of elegance with soft florals thanks to Wildy Ivy, glass and crisp whites. A gorgeous three tier cake was created by Treat Cakes and Pastries, in his favourite flavour, lemon. Belltech did an amazing job setting up the stage which was filled with locals and friends singing and giving words of thanks to Mr Lee for his wisdom.

Day 2 was about fun with friends, family and supporters from around the world arriving in Haruru. We changed the vibe of the evening by using gold to make the marquee sparkle and it went fantastically with the 100s of gold balloons that the guests blew up to wave Mr Lee in to the celebration. Belltech's sound and stage were used to showcase each group of guests performance in honour of Mr Lee. It was a night of musical magic.


We loved creating the style and ensuring that the clients impressed guests and enjoyed themselves, while also showcasing the beautiful setting that was the venue. We made sure everything was well managed, well attended and paid attention to the little details on the night to keep all 150 guests happy, fed and entertained.
