ZENAIDA & EUGENIA’S EGYPTIAN-THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY AT ROCKAWAY HALL (QUEENS)

A few weeks ago, I did something super fun! I agreed to photograph a surprise birthday party for two gorgeous and forever-young ladies turning 55! They’re twins, and their family wanted to surprise them with a fun Egyptian-themed party in order to celebrate their birthdays.

The surprise party was held in a spacious catering hall in Queens, which was easy to get to from Manhattan (the name of the venue is ‘Rockaway Hall’, in case anyone is interested in checking it out!). The room was decked out in Egyptian-themed decorations, with centerpieces made to resemble palm trees, a few large camel cutouts, a large King Tut bust, and an incredible Egyptian mural-printed tapestry. (Can you believe all of this was carefully designed and set up by the daughter-in-law of one of the twins?) The music was amazing (check out It’s a beautiful life entertainment! DJ Edgar and his team did an amazing job keeping people on the dance floor!). The Egyptian-themed treats and desserts were unbelievable (everyone was raving about Edible Eats NYC’s creations!). The photo booth (SmileUAreFamous.com) was so much fun (the lovely attendant even let me take a few photos of myself and helped me round up people for a group photo!). And the best part? Everyone attending the party fully committed to the theme, so there were numerous royal pharaohs, countless goddesses, a clever Anubis, and a few Cleopatras in the crowd. It all looked amazing!

It was also so much fun getting to meet everyone and hanging out! They made me feel super welcome and like I was an integral part of their celebration. I love celebrations like this one, where everyone is having a good time, laughing together at all the silly things they come up with, dancing the night away, and celebrating the important people in their lives. My favorite events to photograph are those that, at the end of the day, serve to remind people how much they are loved. And I am so thankful I had the opportunity to attend this one.
