40th Birthday Party Ideas in New Orleans

40th Birthday Party in New Orleans Race & Religious Cat Guidry

This 40th birthday party in New Orleans was so much fun to plan and design! Our ideas to transform the venue at Race and Religious into a tropical oasis took this party from fun to epic! We worked with Liz, who travels with her husband to New Orleans every year for Jazz Fest, who came to us to surprise her husband with a major celebration for his 40th birthday with 100 of his friends and family from all over the world. She wanted a masculine and bohemian vibe for this party, so we took the opportunity to completely transform Race and Religious with an organic canopy of green vines, wood palette tables, rattan details and lots of amazing food and beverage options. We started with a surprise second line parade from a park nearby, leading guests to the venue, and ended with a burlesque performer singing "Happy Birthday" out of a gilded cake on the dance floor. Every detail was a hit and the guest of honor had the time of his life!
