Harvey’s Surprise Birthday Party | Lubbock Event Center
Love is always in the air at our Lubbock event center – not just on wedding days! Check out how Harvey’s wife surprised him with the best birthday party to celebrate his 80 years of life!
Sandy Garrison came to The Willows Event Center with a vision: she wanted to celebrate her husband, Harvey, in a big way. He was turning 80, and she wanted his celebration to be special. She fell in love with our Lubbock event center and the versatility the space provided. Sandy had many special details in mind, and The Willows Event Center provided the perfect venue to turn her dreams into a reality!
Every detail of Harvey’s party was planned out of love. From the invitations to the balloons, every detail focused on celebrating Harvey and his many years as a successful farmer.
With help from The Willows Event Center’s approved vendors list, this western extravaganza came to life and left Harvey speechless! As guests pulled up to Harvey’s party, they were welcomed by Edith, The Grinnery’s photo booth camper, which was all decked out in red, black, and gold to match the night’s theme. The party started as soon as guests entered the event center, where they were greeted by a wall of wine! Sandy even worked with The Willows Catering Department to craft a special wine cocktail just for Harvey – The Raspberry Rattler.
The event center was full of color and light, from the balloons to the double-stacked marquee letters. Western-themed centerpieces from Forever Yours by Hannah were placed thoughtfully on every table throughout the space.
The main attraction, aside from Harvey of course, was a 700-pound ice sculpture replica of Harvey’s tractor, carved by The Lubbock Ice Chef!
We loved hosting Harvey’s birthday at our Lubbock event venue! Friends and family – some that Harvey had not seen in years – came from all over to celebrate his 80th year.
Harvey ended his big night by giving everyone, including our team members, a handshake and a huge “thank you”! We had such a fun time celebrating him and working alongside his wife, Sandy, to make it all possible!
