Wizard of Oz Party

This past week I have been inspired to “follow the yellow brick road” to our next party idea. I worked a fashion show with the Wizard of Oz theme. Lions and tigers and bears, oh my! One of the scenes had all the models wearing red stiletto’s and it made me think, how fun it would be to have a “there’s no place like home” party. This Red Shoe Invitation by Sarah LeClere would set the scene for a night of marvel. You could even add glitter to it to make it sparkle! I love this idea of using red glittered shoes as a centerpiece and look at this idea for the Wizard of Oz Party. I want to gobble up those sparkly little cake balls and the wicked witches shoe decoration is simply a must! It will for sure make your guests feel, “somewhere over the rainbow” when you send them home with a rainbow lollipop

Falling Confetti

I am so happy with how easy it was to order Falling Confettimy rehearsal dinner invitations from you! I just wanted to tell you how perfect the falling confetti design is for my son and his fiancée.  Why?  Because when he proposed to her below a balcony, after she said yes, a whole bunch of their friends showered them from above with rose petals and hundreds of multicolored bouncy balls!  (See attached picture!) So when I saw this design, I knew that had to be the one!

Thank you!  Looking forward to receiving my order, and will recommend you to others!

Pop Art Party

This week I have been so colorfully inspired by the 60’s and the current Pop Art trend “popping” up every turn I take. I was obsessed with Katy Perry’s “this is how we do” video and how this trend is making us burst with color explosions as if spring just isn’t getting here soon enough. Pop Art is iconic and playful where simplicity rules and color is everything but a whisper. I was thinking how fun it would be to host a graduation party with this theme or even a “his and hers” couple shower! (Can you feel my excitement?) Here are just a few of my ideas….

I just designed these cards yesterday and got them uploaded today. You can check out the Pop Art Photo Card or the Pop Art Party Invitation and customize your party invitations here.

I just died when I ran across this tutorial on how to make Warhol soup can centerpieces, check out this post by Ashley Ann photography. Can you imagine getting to eat this cake? And I just never get tired of creating photo booth moments at our parties, look at how you can give the party that extra “Pow” with pop art photo booth props. Oh, and don’t forget to have one “Bam” of an outfit!

I hope you’re as excited as I am about this theme.

Tea Party

Tea Party

Whether you’re a little girl or a lady of society, having a tea party is an elegant way to share a table and nosh with the coziest of friends. From a young age, tea parties are a whimsical girl’s birthday idea. Moving along through maturity, bridal tea parties become quite the caffeinated affair. When I was younger, I remember my mother hosting her bridge and tea parties with all of her girlfriends. They would get together and sip on their imported Earl Grey as they gabbed about their old men. It was just about the cutest thing I had ever seen and I remember trying to listen in as to not miss a peep of this giddy heart-to-heart.

I think of this timeless tradition every time I hear the whistle of my own tea kettle and I can’t help but want to gather my girls for my own fête of friendship, savoring every sip.
