{We’re Back – Real Party} Christie Rock’s 40th Celebration

August 29th, 2011 in 40th celebration party, real party, rock star party
Happy Monday!  

We’re back this week with a new real celebration.  Christie contacted SED back in April to get some preliminary information about her upcoming special celebration and then we she contacted us again at the beginning of August, we were thrilled!   We were able to find the perfect location, perfect vendors for this “39 & Still Holding Event” within a week! 
The Starwood aLoft Hotel in Ashburn, Virginia was absolutely perfect! The modern and trendy decor fit right in with our theme of “Christie Rocks 40!”
A big big BIG thank you to our new Creative Director, Robin who led this event on her own.  Robin has been “behind the scenes” part of SED since our inception and we are thrilled that she has agreed to join us “officially” as our Creative Director.  Thanks Robin! 
Here are a few photos from the celebration! 

A fun time was held by all! Thanks Mimi for taking photos for us!
