The girls had a workshop to designs and create an outfit. We provided plain t shirts for each girl along with notions, beading ribbons and more. They were so excited and so into it. I was so amazed by so many of their creations, they really went after it!

Hair and makeup was a huge hit. Such a treat to have that done right before the runway!

Monster Party: Silly Rainbows and Funny Faces

By jo anne

A few months ago a great customer wanted to create a Monster party with chevron rainbows for her daughter’s 2nd birthday!

We are always glad when cusomers return to us for original desings.

We love how she styled the party and lucky for us she is an amazing photographer so it’s a win win situation.

Thanks Jen for always trusting us to design for your events. We love working with you and your adorable family!

Thursday Therapy: The Bicycle

By jo anne

My son, Tommy turned 3 in May of 2012 and we had an incredible vintage train party  planned and styled by Oh Goodie Designs.  We were on an actual vintage train dining car and the kids could climb in and around a real caboose and engine.  My husband and I were so excited to give him his “big boy” bike as his gift and we wheeled it onto the dining car, where we proudly sat it in the corner. 
 
Since May I have tried no less than 100 times to get Tommy interested in learning to ride his bike.  I’ve tried every approach:  getting excited, trying to be cool and low key, offering a treat to try to ride, offering a treat to sit on it…you name it, I tried it.  He had no interest…until January of 2013.  He hoped on his bike and started riding…without help from me. 
 
As he rode and I walked behind him, he asked me, “Mom, was this bike from my train party?”
Me:  “Yes.  It was your gift from Mommy and Daddy”
Tommy: “Oh, I thought it was decoration from JoJo”  (JoJo is what my kids call Jo Anne, my sister who owns Oh Goodie Designs)
 
I had to chuckle that, in his young mind, it was a possibility that a really cool bike could be used as a prop at a party.  It helped that I was chuckling because as he rode a few feet ahead of me, his younger brother followed on his inherited tricycle and this was the first time that I did not have to be hands on help with either kiddo riding a bike.  This was a huge milestone in our family and I could have cried.  It was bittersweet.
 
I’m not sure what the lesson is in this story.  It helped me remember that Tommy, like most children, has a reason for everything he does or does not do.  In his mind, this bike was one of JoJo’s props and he was showing respect.  The lesson could be a reminder of how quickly time passes and before you know it, your kids don’t need as much from you as they the did the day prior.  Or, the lesson could be the importance of being in the moment to be able to witness these special moments that make you laugh and cry.
 
Have a happy week–

Winter Wonderland: Celebrate with Snow

By jo anne

 

It just occured to me that as planning for my daughter’s 13th birthday next week, I had not posted pictures from last years party. WOW!

Last year’s party was a winter wonderland in icy blues, luster dust and golden hues. Blue is her favorite color so we used it as mucha as we could. We meet for lunch with her friends then had a super fun mall scavenger hunt. The girls all had a blast!

A Picnic in the Park: It’s the Perfect Party!

By jo anne

What a fun day in the park for Charlie’s 2nd birthday!!

We all gathered in the park to enjoy hot dogs, homemade sides and delicious desserts.

It was a great day for family reminiscing of years spent at this specific park. This is the reason why Charlie’s Mom wanted to incorporate oilcloth and a vintage feel because that is what reminds her of those special outings with family from years ago.

 

The guests enjoyed many activities like swimming, fishing, feeding the ducks, bubble blowing, sidewalk chalk art and of course a pinata!

Paletas cooled off the guests and it wouldn’t be a picnic without bees as they hovered over our Aquas Frescas.

Charlie says, “Enough pictures, let’s get this party started!”

It was a super fun day and I think Charlie had a great birthday!! Thanks for letting me be a part of your special day!

Back to School: It’s A Hoot!

By jo anne

We are in the full swing of back to school around here.
Homework, lunchboxes and alarm clocks. This back to school breakfast shared with me by Delightful Designs made me smile thinking of how school can be fun and bright!

Keeping a smile on my kids’ faces each morning is exausting. Maybe surprising them with a Back to school breakfast wouldn’t be such a bad idea.

See the feature here for downloads and more ideas like the cutest little owls I’ve ever seen!!

Pinwheel First Birthday: Mac & Paisley Celebrate

By jo anne

I was contacted by a fellow blogger to help in coordinating her twins’ first birthday. We had so much fun sharing ideas back and forth via email and text. I love helping to coordinate parties online. Friendships are always formed as you share your visions and talents. Harper Gray for OGD  designed the invites and graphic suite used and OGD made  the party hats, banners and suggested ideas for styling and set up using pictures sent to us of the park pavilion she has rented.

So, from many many miles away, Mac & Paisley look like they had a smashing good time!!

Contact us for your next event. We would love to help even if we can’t be there.
