The 40th birthday party of Brazilian artist Rubem Robierb, that took place in South Beach, was much more than simply get together to celebrate a dear friend. The event, full in details, started when guests received, at home, a large pop piece of art as the invitation, created and signed by Rubem. The beautiful party, discreetly orchestrated by an event planer, had a crescendo vibe where it started with a cocktail greeting, overlooking the bay that transitioned to a ” white pool party like” where samba and capoeira dancers took turns entertaining the attendees.
At the birthday cake hour, Sam Champion, who is Rubem’s partner, gave a short speech followed by Rubem who truly spoke from his heart when referring what his guests meant to him: ” if you are here, it is because at some point in my life our paths crossed and you mean something to me and I wanted to share this special moment with you….”
I flew in from New York just for his birthday and it truly felt special to be there, and I can honestly say that I’m sure that everyone else who was there felt the same also.
