{ zootopia themed birthday style shoot | event photography }

Pops of bold colors and animal prints set the stage for this “city meets safari” ZOOTOPIA style birthday photo shoot, with décor by the creative team at the Special Event Resource + Design Group.

Working with a lime, purple, and orange palette, and mostly paper décor… from the lanterns, to the flowers and paper mache animals and masks, the tables featured silk petal overlays, festive glassware and multi-colored napkins fastened with a variety of wooden animal rings.

Styled by Joriann Maye for Chris Joriann Photography, and coordinated by Lauren Daversa Events, the style event took place at The Club at Evergrene.

Ghost chiavari’s and silver hammered chargers, from Superior Party Rentals, and lighting design by Illumene completed the look.

The fabulous themed cake and sweets were created by Jennifer Johnson of Johnson’s Custom Cakes, Wellington for an epic dessert table, which centered around custom signage, and a commissioned painting of the mythical Zootopia world was created by Live Event Art by Gayle.
