Denola Grey’s birthday dinner is all the intimate wedding decor inspo we need

Nigerian actor and fashion consultant, Denola Grey celebrated his 30th birthday party on the 30th of August, 2020 in style with a royal banquet theme. The surprise birthday party theme was conceptualized by the visual creator and director of Deola Sagoe, Teni Sagoe and Lagos based event design company, Yvent Kouture brought the vision to life.

The party was nothing short of extravagant in line with the theme; colorful table floral runners, candles, luxurious black and gold tableware, and scrumptious meals (main courses and desserts). Here’s the decor brief

A Spoils of War Dinner spread in true Henry VIII style, a banquet fit for a king. If you’ve ever wondered how to dine like royalty, this is certainly how. Our Autumnal-toned foliage against an unlikely black canvas made for quite the striking contrast. We kept things classic with some red roses but made sure to add a few copper accents for the shock value; with fruit infusions for a splash of decadence. This table arrangement is as beautiful as it is indulgent – with lots of edible decor elements and a plethora of photo opportunities. We had almost as much fun setting it up as the dinner guests and the “King’ himself who never left His throne did. He said it felt very much like the perfect recreation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

We are absolutely in love with everything about this setup and we think it’s the perfect theme for an intimate wedding or pre-wedding party. See more pictures

Ok here it goes. I’m still struggling to find the words to convey how deliriously happy and loved I feel right now. On August 13th ( my 30th birthday) my friends and family got together and pulled off one of the biggest surprises of my life! I was prepared to have a quiet 30th with literally 0 plans and just chill at home. What they did was beyond anything I could have thought or imagined and I haven’t ugly cried so much in my life. Tears of joy. The team, spearheaded by my big brother Damola thousands of miles away in Mauritius, and led by my best friends all over the world, showered me with too many surprises to fit into one post. I mean, the decor alone! Everything was so well thought out, so incredibly ‘me’! Just mind blowingly phenomenal and socially distant! 18 friends and family in 3 batches and time slots throughout the day, came to show me love; all dressed in. Their best Dénola Grey outfit btw! Culminating in the most beautiful short film ever with messages from all my friends worldwide! I can’t thank my tribe enough. Bidemi, Teni, Ore, Kecy, Fis, Afolabi, Sonia, Toyosi, Immanuel, Mikey, Ademide, Kike, Reni and Demi: the planning committee. I love you beyond comprehension. To pull off something like this in my home without me being any the wiser is some Mission Impossible sh*t! When you start approaching your 30th, so many anxieties come. You know the amount of love you feel in your heart for people, but you’re not always sure if you’re valued the same way. I prayed for more love in my life a few weeks ago it didn’t occur to me that it was already there.I just had to be reminded. And boy, was i reminded 10,000 fold. Love is the best thing we do as humans. So thankful and blessed to have an unlimited abundant amount of it. I’ll be posting more from that day. I’m still pinching myself ! ?✨ Concept: @allthat_t Decorator: @yventkouture Food: @board.lagos Cake: @rumnpassion
