Surprise Party

Its always a pleasure when you build lasting relationships with your clients and are able to work with them to plan all of the memorable occasions in their family.  From graduations to surprise birthday parties, its always an honor.  I met Alan several years ago when he contacted me about planning a surprise birthday party for his wife Michele.  We had a blast planning it and she was beyond surprised, so when it came time for Alans 60th birthday Michele wanted to return the favor and contacted us.  We couldn’t have been more excited to pull off a surprise party for Alan.

In our initial meeting with Michele she told us a little more about Alans interests.  Not only is he a Kidney doctor which we already knew, but he is a lover of sci-fi, old Hollywood style and a lover of movies.  With this in mind we wanted the décor and feel for the event to be very chic and masculine without being cliché. Therefore, we went with a masculine yet sophisticated color scheme of Black, Silver and burgundy.  We pulled in different patterns and textures to bring depth and interest to the style of the event.  The greek key linen was one of our favorites.   That combined with Crinkle taffeta and satin linens with the punch of red in the napkins and flowers, really set the tone for an upscale birthday party.

Guests were treated to a plated dinner, dancing and an open bar.

Other special touches of the event included a wish tree that the guests were able to write “scripts” /wishes  for the birthday boy.  The photobooth is always a big hit with this family so we knew this party would not be complete without it and what party would be complete without desserts.  Not only was there birthday cake but several different dessert options that the guests could choose from.

The most difficult part of the planning was keeping the party a surprise, because all of Alans friends, family and colleagues were attending.   However, the surprise was a success and he couldn’t have been happier.  Thank you Michele, Alan and family, it was a sincere pleasure being a part of such a special day. Happy Birthday!

Aubrie's Winter ONEderland Party

Our intern Laurie threw a Sweet Winter ONEderland party for her little girl Aubrie Lin who turn ONE this last week! The colors were pink, grey, and white and snowflakes were everywhere!

The Birthday Girl Aubrie Lin was adorable in her pink tutu and pearls!

She did start to get tired and cranky after her photos :)

The tutu table skirt and the tulle pom garland backdrop was made by Laurie. It was such a cute addition to the party decor. She found pink marshmallows and dipped them in white chocolate and covered them in silver sprinkles. They were so easy to make and were a nice touch to her dessert table.

She incorporated  white branching with snowflakes hung to tie in the winter theme.

How cute is this banner she ordered off etsy?!

Even the pink drinks had snowflakes on them!

Sugar Shack Specialty Sweets made all of the strawberry snowflake cupcakes, pink sugar snow cookies, and the delicous pink macaroons!

Laurie’s friend Sue made the GORGEOUS ruffle cake! It was even a pink ombre layers inside!

The dessert table was filled with so many delicious sweets!

The goodie bags tied in the grey chevron table cloth and ribbons throughout the party.

We love all of the beautiful photos captured by Wellspring Photography!

We think the party was adorable and Aubrie enjoyed her Sweet Winter ONEderland party!

Happy Birthday Aubrie!
