niKKI - Eighteenth Birthday Celebration - The Courtyard Marriott - Downtown Detroit - Michigan – Detroit, MI - Cascade Ballroom
TRADITIONAL PARTY - Nikki was feted in celebration of her 18th Birthday by Family and Friends in downtown Detroit, at the Courtyard Marriott, across the street from the Renaissance Center. The weather outside was cool and drizzly, but the atmosphere inside was warm and festive.
Black and Gold were the theme colors and they were sprinkled in combination on the paper goods (invitations, itinerary, menu), linens (table cloths, napkins, seat slipcovers) and food (special order cake and appetizers).
THE EVENING - The evening’s itinerary consisted of The Grand Entrance, The Blessing, The Dinner, 18 Roses Dance, 18 Candles Cake, Cake Cutting and the dancing. There were many touching, memorable moments: the Celebrant’s dance with her Dad, as her Mom looked on with tearful pride; the slide show made by her sister of her growing-up years; the Celebrant’s funny gestures during her grand entrance; the many jokes shared by close family and friends. Family and friends had traveled to downtown Detroit to be a part of this day. They hailed from Chicago, Texas, England (U.K.) and Canada.
It was a wonderful party, hosted by loving parents, for a beautiful girl, to celebrate a milestone in her life, and the love and good wishes were palpable in the atmosphere. Congrats and Happy Birthday!
