Tangled Birthday Party

Ok, I know, I totally owe an end of the year post!!  I've been working on it and it's so long but still not ready.   Promise that's my next one.  It didn't feel right sharing that without sharing my Tangled party from November.  I'm in LOVE with this theme, the colors are amazing and are so befitting of a princess.  I've actually never done a princess party before and I was happy that my first one wasn't typical "tiara and wand" type of stuff.   Here ya go, hope you enjoy :)

Blues Clues Birthday Party

I had the honor and pleasure of doing a 2nd birthday party recently for such an adorable little boy.  The theme was Blues Clues….I know, who knew he was still around right?!  When I heard the theme I must admit I was a little scared because even though the show is still on, Blue himself is kinda past his hay day lol.  There was not a lot around for this theme at all, and when I say not a lot I really me not at all.  A few printables around but that was really it…it was even hard finding a book that wasn't used for story time.  Anyway, little did I know it turned out to be the best thing.  I wasn't stuck in a box or trying to work with anything pre made.  I was able to be creative with colors and introduce some handmade elements that I thought were adorable.

See for yourself…

The shirt folded napkins were a wink and nod to Steve's signature Rugby shirt.

Woodland Birthday Party

Hi everyone!  I'm sharing a party that is very special to me.  It's special because it's for a repeat customer which is sometimes rare in this business.  Most people use my services for "milestone" birthdays, or a one time special event so it was nice to have this one come back so soon.  Also, it's a huge compliment!! So often I leave an event with a case of the "shoulda, coulda, woulda's" which is so stressful for me to constantly be critiquing myself.  It's hard sometimes to see the good things that way, or to give myself that pat on the back for a job well done.  Having this customer come back so soon, just reinforced to me that I'm a good planner, and that THIS is what I'm suppose to be doing.  I know that, but it's nice to have an outside reminder :)  You might remember her daughter's first birthday, Pink Safari.  This is now her third birthday which is a Woodland theme.

We were fortunate to have an amazing location for the event, Kaia Wine Bar in NYC.  I love that you wouldn't think to have a kids birthday party there yet it worked so well that I would definitely suggest it to anyone going forward.  The staff there was over the top amazing and the space fit the event perfectly!  It also just added a unique factor that is always so hard to find in an industry where you're faced with so many yellow rectangles to decorate.  This had so much style and rustic pieces which went well with the theme.

Thanks so much!  Believe me, there will be SO MANY more pictures posted of this party on the facebook page tomorrow.  I hope you will check them out!!

Candy Themed Birthday Party

Doesn't everyone LOVE candy?!  I had so much fun creating this CANDY themed 7th birthday party a couple weeks ago :)  Of course, I had to have great photos for all the beautiful colors I wanted to use and I was lucky enough to work with Two Leaf Photo again.  I hope you enjoy looking at what I was able to create with these wonderful candy colors!

Of course, THIS is the candy table :)
