At the party site, on the 14th floor of the event venue, guests were greeted with 20-foot floor-to-ceiling windows reflecting the soft glow of 10 glowing crystal chandeliers, which had been hung from the ceiling.

Set atop a 48-inch round table, covered in a custom black lace linen, sat a six-layer birthday cake in shades of pink and red. Adorning each layer were candy flowers and lips as well as white and black ruffles, which added texture and interest.
A 6-foot chandelier was poised above the cake, acting as a glittering cake topper. Atop the table were gunmetal gray mercury glass votives with flickering candles, which gave the table even extra punch.
