Hottest South Beach Destination Birthday Weekend – Miami, FL; Photography; Event Design, Decor

Kanika was born and currently resides in Houston, Texas however, she knew Miami, Florida was the place to celebrate her 40 years of life. Over 100 of Kanika’s closest family and friends traveled from all over for this 4 day celebration. They were welcomed with gift boxes filled with snacks, water, and even a “hangover kit”.

The theme was KJ Fortytude, a theme that Kanika created herself. KJ is her intials, while Fortytude is a play on an attitude and Lady Fortitude. Kanika is a proud member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. and Lady Fortitude symbolizes strength, wisdom, beauty, and femininity.

Events included dinner at STK Miami, relaxing at Lapis Spa at the Fontainebleau, partying at South Beach nightclubs, an all white party onboard the Venetian Lady Yacht,Sunday brunch at the Sugar Factory, and a pool party at the Surfcomber Hotel.

The main color for the yacht party was Tiffany blue, however it was paired with red, which brought in another touch of DST. The décor and desserts were accented with sparkle as Kanika loves her “bling”.

Events included: dinner at STK, Spa day at the Fountainebleau Hotel, partying at South Beach nightclubs, Yacht Party on the Venetian Lady, Brunch at the Sugar Factory, and a pool party at the Surfcomber Hotel
