Alice and Karla are best friends who decided to bring their families and friends to Ibiza to celebrate their joint 40th birthday party in one of the luxury villas of the white isle.

For Karla and Alice, it was very important to mix luxury and good service with spirituality and feminine energy, which was inspiration for the day from start to finish.

Starting the Day with Purpose and Good Energy

"The morning started with the ladies taking part in a women's circle in the Crystal Mountains. Here they were able to create a sacred bond, as well as connect with nature and healing through the power of crystals. Alice and Karla brought their like-minded friends to this sacred setting, sharing their support, love, and healing through the crystals during their 3-hour women's circle. It was the perfect start to the day where they could feel a sense of grounding and bonding before the celebrations ahead of them."

How to Set the Tone From Moment One

"As every guest entered the luxury private villa where the birthday event would take place, they were welcomed by a spiritual healer who used copal (a Mexican incense) to cleanse the energy of each guest before entering. The soothing scent and mindfulness experienced at the doorway were then carried throughout the entire party."

The Best Events Make the Guests Feel Special, Too!

"Everyone who attended the party had the opportunity to take part in fun experiences such as getting their fortune read by a spiritual tarot card reader or getting their makeup done by a talented makeup artist! Looking after the body and soul was at the heart of this party." Alice and Karla had their makeup done by artist, Ana Perez. "Once all the guests were looking and feeling radiant, the magical evening began, with drinks flowing from the Champagne and Tequila bar."
