Favorite Favors

It's "Tips Tuesday"! Today, we are sharing tips on giving great favors to your guests. As a planner, I focus on ensuring my clients make the best use of their event budget because let's face it, who wants to waste money? Therefore, it's important when choosing a favor that you select an option that your guests will use and enjoy. If you apply our 3 simple tips below in your favor selection process, we are sure you, your guests and your wallet will all be happy. 1) Edible Favors: Food is the key to some men and women's hearts. Well, why not have your guests fall in love with your party by sending them off with an assortment of candy, desserts and/or snacks. Pre-packaged goodies can be personalized to your theme and will make a tasty take away for your guests. Alternatively, having a styled sweets table is a great way to bring added decor to your event and allows your guests to pick and choose what goodies they'd like to take home and enjoy. Either option is perfect for weddings, parties, showers and a wide array of other events. Check out this orange and gold sweets table we did this past November:

2) Themed Favors: If you've chosen a specific theme for your event, selecting a favor that ties into that theme is perfect! This is a great way to keep the party going for your guests even after they've left. Children's parties are a great opportunity to choose cute and clever themed treats. For instance, we created Doc McStuffins prescription bottle, candy favors for a cute 3rd birthday this Summer. It allowed the little guests to play Doc and enjoy a treat, too. This adorable themed favor is available for purchase in our brand new Etsy shop.

Additionally, you can also have a lot of fun with themed, adult party favors. We recently assisted with a chic, Sex and the City themed bridal shower. The ladies all went home with the perfect favor...a mirror compact with a high heel on the front. If that doesn't scream Carrie Bradshaw, I don't know what does!

3) Special Keepsake: Lastly, another great idea for favors is a special keepsake that your guests can have and enjoy for months or even years. To make the most of your keepsake, consider an item that speaks to you but that guests would likely use often. We had the pleasure of assisting with a 90th birthday earlier this year, and the favors were personalized coffee mugs. Given the more mature crowd and the event being held in the winter, it was an excellent choice for guests to later enjoy coffee, tea, hot chocolate and more.

A Spideriffic Halloween!

Happy Halloween! We hope you enjoy a fun and safe day filled with candy and costumes. This year, my son was anxious for Halloween, so I decided to put together some non-spooky decorations and sweets for him to enjoy today. He's a Spider-Man fan, so I went for a spideriffic theme, which he absolutely loved! Special thanks to Georgetown Cupcake for the yummy Halloween cupcakes. oct7

The Amazing Spider-Man!

Happy Hump Day! In case you've wondered where we've been over the last few weeks, we've been enjoying summer vacation and some good ole R&R! We hope you have had an opportunity to kick your heels up and vacation this summer, too. Now that summer is almost over and the kids are back in school, back to business we go! This summer, we had the pleasure of assisting with not 1 but 2 Spider-Man parties for 2 amazing little guys! Since my son is a HUGE Spider-Man fan, it was very easy for me to draw inspiration. For both parties, cityscape and superhero elements were requested, which were perfect to bring Spider-Man to life! Check out a few photos of some of the decor from each party:

Live...Laugh...Love...30!

This past Sunday, I turned the big 3-0! Together with my husband and close friends, I celebrated this milestone with a birthday soiree at my home. As I reflected over the past 30 years, the mantra "live, laugh, love" came to mind, so I immersed that throughout all elements of the celebration. Good food, fun, endless conversation, laughs, and lots of love perfectly describes the night. I'm truly looking forward to all that 30 will bring. Check out a few photos from my Live, Laugh, Love Celebration: collage1 collage2 collage3 collage4 collage5 collage6 collage7 collage8

Sweet Summer - Throwback Thursday Edition

It's "Throwback Thursday", and this month we're sharing inspiration and more to get you prepared for a sweet summer! Today, we are traveling back to last June and sharing some awesome candy tables we did for some awesome kids.

First up is a Pre-K graduation party, where we styled a candy and cupcake table for the special little graduate, Taylor.  We highlighted Taylor's cap and gown colors, which were blue and white, and threw in a pop of pink for a fun and girly touch. You can see the full recap of this cute graduation party here.

We also did another Pre-K graduation party last June, where we styled a candy table in the theme of the popular Dr. Seuss "Oh, The Places You'll Go". The book was the perfect inspiration for a preschool soiree. We incorporated lots of bright colors and oversized candy decor for a fun twist. Check out more photos and details from this colorful grad party here.

Our final throwback from last June is my son's 2nd birthday party. The theme was Thomas the Train, so we created a fun blue and red candy and dessert table with lots of custom train accents. You can see part 1 of our recap here and part 2 here. We were so thrilled and honored to have Cameron's party featured on the popular party website Hostess With The Mostess.
