n over-the-top 21st birthday celebration
staged by Oasis Events,
based in Gloucestershire, England, was at
the crest of a winding hill, through a wood,
overlooking a lake on a private estate. The

fairy light shining through them.
A comfortable wonderland
The furniture was a carefully curated
mix of velvets and aged wood, and chalkpainted
