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!

Fairy Gardens

Fairy Gardens!

We are excited to announce we have added fairy gardens and fairy garden accessories to our boutique.  As a very detail oriented company fairy gardens are right up our alley.  I’m sure most of you have seen a fairy garden or two, here are some fun facts about fairy gardens that you may or may not know.

It all starts with the container.  Show your personality off with the type of container you select then build upon it. Containers of all shapes and sizes are prime real estate for Fairy Gardens.  Here are a few containers that we love.

 New to fairy gardens or gardening? You don’t have to be intimidated with the elaborate layouts and accessories, START SMALL.  We suggest maybe a basket, or planter box.  They are portable and won’t require a lot of plants or accessories.  The “Fairy Garden Architects” create small houses and accessories from natural materials. Some of the accessories that we have include: benches, wheel barrows, table set, bridges, stone walkways, fences, arches, houses, and the fairies themselves. Not every gardener places little stone fairies in their garden, but instead likes to suggest that the fairies are out and about and could return at any moment. Feel free to complete your garden with a small figurine fairy to pull it all together.

Fairy gardens are easy for beginners because caring for them is pretty simple. Putting succulents in your fairy garden creates a stable environment that does not need a lot of water or extra attention. Use low creeping plants that cover the ground as fairy “lawns.” Some fairy gardens are for the indoors only, with plants, such as, succulents and mosses; but some fairy gardens can be outdoors with more extravagant flowers and plants.

Please meet Sarah & Chris!


This Fun loving couple tied the knot on June 15 at the Beautiful Toledo Country Club.  We had the pleasure of working with Sarah and Chris from the moment they got engaged and assisted the with the design and coordination of their event.  They selected a beautiful, modern and crisp color palate of grey, white and shades of pinks and peach.


Their Stationery was one of my favorite to date.  I love the variations of type.

The cake was created by Sugar Shack Specialty Sweets and was a show stopper for sure


The custom banner that graced the dessert table was from The Elite Events Boutique.

We beautified the Bride and Grooms chairs with Ombre ribbon to give them just an added special touch.  Sarah LOVED it!
