Akin's 40th Birthday_007 Theme_Kesh Events_BellaNaija Living 2015_20151128-Corp-AkinBday-0104BellaNaija Living is kicking off 2016 with a bang!

When it came to the birthday for the husband of a wedding planner and designer, it was sure to be a showstopper. What better way to celebrate Akin’s 40th birthday with a luxurious evening and a touch of mystery than creating a unique and fabulous black tie birthday bash for Akin could not have been more fun! Think Bond!

Every single detail of this glamorous silver, black and white celebration had “Bond, James Bond”, written all over it; from the “Top Secret” invitations  designed by  Greenstar Paperie all the way down to the custom Bond songs perfectly performed by  SWAY Chicago. Some other details we can’t stop obsessing over was the 0040 Ice Sculpture created by Johnson Studios Ice Sculptures and the custom bars with Bond inspired signature drinks including martinis, shaken, not stirred, of course. If the signature drinks didn’t fulfill the cravings of the guests surely the cigar and bubbly bar could be of assistance. Guests also enjoyed scrumptious bites from  Entertaining Company.

The  Kesh Designs  team created a welcoming ambience with white florals, furniture, draping and soft fabric  and lighting design through the oh so gorgeous Chez!. The aerialists and showgirls majorly contributed to the sexy and mysterious ambiance of the evening. Black jack tables and dealers were available to guests that were feeling lucky and those that didn’t want to test their luck weren’t shy on the dance floor.

This night was full of fun surprises for both the celebrant and guests, genuine laughter and happiness and if you don’t believe me take a look at the absolutely genius photo shoot, thrilling video and party photos below!

    I was at Akin’s superlative 40th Birthday bash. Kesh went all out to make the day a memorable one. Guests were well fed and entertained. It was a singular honor and distinct privilege to share the joyous occasion with Acqusition and Kesh.
