She might still be Jenny from the block, but Jennifer Lopez celebrated her 50th birthday with a glamorous, star-studded party fit for a superstar. And we’re sharing all of the over-the-top details.
The singer and actress hosted her celebration at Gloria Estefan (fellow diva) and Emilio Estefan’s private estate on Star Island in Miami, the ultimate private event venue. The expert planners at Carolina Toledo Event Production Company produced the celebration and compiled an all-star team of event professionals for the epic birthday party.
Gilded Group Décor filled the already-stunning space with gold and white décor, including a gilded champagne tower, a custom white and gold dance floor, and dreamy white floral centerpieces. All of the celebrating took place under four different tents with gorgeous gold draping (you know how we feel about ceiling décor!), created and installed by Swag Decor.
Guests headed outside the tents to find stunning gold inflatable orbs – also from Swag Decor — hanging from the palm trees above chic white lounge furniture. And there was no shortage of Instagrammable moments, from a winged swing and custom signage from PrettyLittleThing (a sponsor of the evening, along with Quay Australia) to the gold and white balloon installation — perfectly placed on the venue’s staircase — from Bambini Soirée.
No birthday party is complete without a cake, but no average confection would do for Jennifer Lopez. Divine Delicacies Cakes created a towering 10-tier birthday cake that was covered in black and gold fondant and Swarovski crystals, and later, sparklers were added for a picture-perfect rendition of “Happy Birthday” for the guest of honor. Other sweets included on-theme treats from Milk Bar and Mojo Donuts.
And what would a J.Lo birthday party be without an A-list guest list and epic musical performances? Ashanti and DJ Khaled were just a few of the guests who joined Lopez and her beau, Alex Rodriguez, at the party, and Fat Joe grabbed the mic for an epic performance with help from J.Lo herself. The night ended with an incredible fireworks show. Celebrity photographer, Walik Goshorn, captured all the performances — and the love — at the unforgettable 50th birthday bash.
