Sometimes Fairytales Do Come True

What: Nicole Lassiter’s fairy tale-inspired 40th birthday party

Where: Hotel ZaZa Museum District

PC Moment: The former Miss Teen Texas USA and Miss Texas USA beauty and handbag designer Nicole Lassiter entered her fourth decade surrounded by family, friends and a whimsical cast of Disney characters. It was an evening that transformed the Hotel ZaZa ballroom into a rollicking fantasy that was recorded by three photographers and a videographer.

Nicole’s husband, attorney James Lassiter, embraced his wife’s enchantment with Disney fantasy on the evening that saw character’s from Cinderella, Frozen, Maleficent, Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin waltz through the lively party scene.

Guests dressed in accordance with the lavish invitation’s request for attire: “pretty as a princess” and “dapper as a prince.” Which explains the plethora of tiaras at this anything but conventional Houston birthday party.

Macy Lima Celebrations created the fairytale-inspired venues while J&D Entertainment provided Broadway caliber performances resounding with familiar tunes from Disney hits. On the piano “Prince Charming” filled part of the evening with a Disney playlist. After the “Happy Birthday” serenade, led by Houston’s popular song man Bubba McNeely, party energy ratcheted up a notch with DJ Cesar Gil.

The elaborate multi-tiered birthday cake in the guise of magnificent castle was the handiwork of Pearland-based Good Gosh Ganache.
