Crab Feed 40th Birthday Surprise

I'm so excited to share this beautiful crab feed birthday dinner party with you today! At Coco Lane, we believe in the value of gathering friends and family to celebrate, mingle, crack! a few jokes, laugh and enjoy the moment.

And what says it better than this amazing surprise birthday party from Brandon Sampson Photography.  

From Brandon: A styled shoot turned surprise birthday party. Eric's 40th birthday surprise crab feed was hosted at the The Little Kitchen in Oakland by Jessica Lasky Catering. Bash Please elegantly styled this bohemian black-tie dinner party with the help of some incredible friends and vendors. Marigold SF's all dried flower design brought a natural and unique vibe to this intimate birthday surprise. It was a night of great friends, great food and lots of laughs.

My background is as a wedding & lifestyle photographer, shooting both digital and film to create authentic, soft and natural fine art photographs. Working primarily with natural light to give my work a beautiful, light and airy touch infused with soft tones. 

I have always appreciated and valued the simple things in life and finding the interesting in the ordinary.  Coco Lane was founded as I wanted to create something that is about an experience, the slower pace of life, cosiness and candlelight, cuddling up on the sofa with loved ones, being with the people you love, sharing food with close friends, a feeling of home, nurturing a chosen career, wanderlust travels, savouring the small moments in everyday life and just being you and enjoying a cup of tea.

I'm excited to bring you stories that promote all those moments in life that give us value and meaning; inspiring  us to live beautifully.

"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life.  If you are interested in something, no matter what it is. Go at it full speed.  Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it, and above all become passionate about it.  Lukewarm is no good" - Roald Dahl
