Olga's Peacock Themed 24th Surprise Party

Sugar Queens was recently commissioned to throw the surprise 24th birthday party of one of our friend Olga. The theme was a purple & teal peacock theme, and we're excited that after a month of covert planning, that we're FINALLY able to post some photos of the party!

The party was held at their home in Brick, NJ. While she was out of the house for the day, we got to work getting everything ready.

When we get a theme, we're known for following through with it in all details. Check out these beautiful mason jar center pieces!

We also did matching water bottle labels. They came out so amazing that we're going to be offering them in out store! They can be found here: Peacock Feather Water Bottle Labels 

The tables were set with matching linens, and had the mason jar centerpieces tied with matching balloons, and scattered jars with votive candles in them. Vanessa made these out of baby food jars, and added coordinating ribbon and some lace to them.

The AMAZING dinner was catered by Chef In Thyme LLC. We got a TON of compliments on the food-everyone wanted to know who made it.
Check them out at
Executive Chef Qadiyr R. Bullock of  Chef In Thyme makes everything 100 % from scratch.

The dinner menu included:
Beef Stir Fry
Roast Pork Shoulder <------out of this friggin world amazing
Pulled Pork
Curry Chicken
Glazed Carrots
Penne Vodka
Sofrito Marinated Chicken Wings

I know that we promised pictures of the food. But the second that we took the lids off, it was OVER. They picked them CLEAN. So here's a picture of the empty trays LOL. The food was just amazing.

For dessert, we had a huge red velvet and cream cheese birthday cake. 

We also had brownie chocolate chip bars, sugar cookies, lemon berry trifle, banana pudding trifle, and a candy bar full of the birthday girl's favorite treats.

It was a great night-thank you everyone for coming out! Can't wait to do it all over again!



  1. You really threw an awesome birthday party for your friend. Will use peacock ideas in planning my friend’s surprise birthday party at one of NYC venues. She was not here for years and now this year she will be with us so want to make it a grand success.
