Turning sixteen opens many doors for a young lady…unfortunately, it does not open the doors to most nightclubs. And so, when Teena Bianca Patel turned sweet sixteen, her parents Ragini and Yogesh threw her the kind of party she dreamed of. Teena’s mother, Ragini Patel owns the acclaimed design and decor company Weddings InStyle. That she would plan and design her daughter’s birthday party was a foregone conclusion; that it would be fabulous was a given. On the night of her August 21, 2010 event, the W Hotel Perimeter was the hottest club in town for Teena’s 150 guests. Images by The Decisive Moment.
Pink was the color of the night. Lighting and lounge seating created a club-like space, and Ragini brought on the girly glamour with enhancements like crystal candelabras, hot pink phaleonopsis orchids and other flowers in shades of pink, as well as elaborately bejeweled and styled mannequins. Edible pink and silver glitter bonbons lent a bit of bling to each table.
CAKE & DESSERT
An elaborate dessert bar featuring tortes, tarts, brownies, cookies, eclairs, truffles, cannolis, mousse cups and birthday cake fed those with a sweet tooth. The cake, from Cakes by Caryn, was a whimsical, jeweled creation with a cake rhinestone tiara on top that Teena had helped design. In keeping with the club theme, a Lady Gaga impersonator staffed the candy bar.
When Teena’s friends arrived after being transported in the Atlanta Party Bus, they were granted access to the most exclusive club in town, featuring DJ Kumar of POHP. The DJ kept the dance floor rocking from start to finish, just like the birthday girl requested.
