Giving Tuesday!

What comes after Black Friday and Cyber Monday? GIVING TUESDAY, which is a global day dedicated to giving back! Today, people around the world are joining together to celebrate generosity and to give. How amazing is that?! You can learn more about Giving Tuesday here. giving tuesday

In honor of Giving Tuesday, we'd like to highlight an amazing organization we are so happy to support. As an event planning company, Sensational Soirees is all about celebrating others and making their special events sensational. Additionally, as a mother of 2, I'm always drawn to great initiatives for children. When I learned about the non-profit organization, The Confetti Foundation, I was so inspired by their mission and immediately wanted to join their great cause to provide party starter kits to children who have to spend their birthdays in the hospital. The foundation was started with the hope that families will be able to shift their focus from their child’s sickness for just 30 minutes and celebrate. Although the party is not a cure, it will be a welcome distraction and good reminder that every child deserves to be celebrated.

The Confetti Foundation has been recognized by the state of Rhode Island as a charitable organization, and is an approved 501(c)(3) non profit organization. Through the Partnership of Children’s Hospitals, The Confetti Foundation hopes to be accepted into all 50 states with the help of volunteers, better known as birthday fairies and heros. I'm so proud to share that Sensational Soirees is the official birthday fairy for the Washington, D.C. area participating hospital, HSC Pediatric Center. We are excited to give our time to help brighten up children's birthdays!

If you'd like to learn more about the Confetti Foundation and the many ways individuals, families, businesses and organizations can support and give, please visit their website.

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:

Splish Splash Bash

It's Fun Friday, and we're still sharing fun ways to celebrate Summer! As a child, I went swimming every Summer, and it proved to be a sure way to have fun in the sun. Now, when I take vacations being poolside or walking the beach is a must.  In addition, the pool, beach or a waterpark is the perfect place to host a birthday bash, luau themed party, children's play date or co-ed adult soiree! Check out these ideas that inspired us for a splish splash bash: pool1

Fire Station #3

Happy Wednesday! Today's "Sweet Summer" post is all about the sweet little boy who stole my heart 3 years ago today...my son, Cameron! Lovable, funny, smart, full of energy and one of a kind sums up our birthday boy. In honor of Cameron's 3rd birthday, we had a fire station celebration at our home this past weekend. From beginning to end, we set the roof on fire with fun amongst family and friends! To help the kids feel like true fire fighters, they dressed and played the part at our replica miniature fire station. This preceded a visit from fire fighters in a bonafied fire truck from Capitol Fire Truck Rentals, LLC. Cameron and his friends were able to learn about fire safety, try on firemen gear, hop on board the fire truck and even put out a few pretend fires. They loved every minute of their fire fighting experience! Since the party was on the 1st day of summer, we also let the kids enjoy some fun in the sun and bounce around in the fire station themed moonbounce.

In between all the fun, everyone had a chance to enjoy pizza, extinguish their thirst, and  "Stop, Eat and Roll" at our snack station filled with lots of fire themed goodies, such as fire truck wheels (oreos) and great balls of fire (cheese popcorn). I believe all parties should have a sweet ending, so after singing Happy Birthday to Cameron we were able to indulge in ice cream, the fire truck themed cake from the Kake Korner and cupcakes made by yours truly. It was a wonderful day in celebration of my little fire chief and all of his fire fighting friends got to take home some goodies to include: a fire chief hat, toy fire truck, water bottle to extinguish their thirst, snack bags and activity packets donated by the Westlake Fire Station.

As we celebrate my favorite little guy's birthday, check out some photos from his birthday bash below:
