Leah, of Color Pop Events based in New York City, was planning her friend's "unmentionable" birthday and flying out with a few girlfriends for the weekend. When she reached out I was so excited to head out to the Saguaro to photograph their party. Leah kept with the theme of her friend's fun and colorful personality by hosting the weekend at the Saguaro in Palm Springs,the most colorful hotel in the desert. The hotel was amazingly accommodating and allowed us to set up our dinner party in its Tinto restaurant, which was closed at the time for renovations, so we pretty much had an entire restaurant all to ourselves. Leah's vendor friends Sincerely, Jackie designed the party invites and paper goods and Toasted Parties supplied all of the decor from the honeycombs to the party animals (my favorite!) to the silver glitter pineapple drink stirrers (because it's not a party without glitter!).
