Purple & Gold 50th Birthday Party

purple-tablescape-ideas-for-weddingsThis gorgeous Purple & Gold 50th Birthday Party styled by Britney Fox with Fox Events & Design looks like it came straight out of a wedding magazine! The birthday girl’s husband wanted to make his wife’s golden birthday truly special. He enlisted the help of  Fox Events & Design to create an elegant and intimate affair at their home in south Jersey with 50 guests in attendance. The color palette purple and gold signified the “Golden Years” colors.
