pajamas and pancakes 1st birthday

12 Dec

Showing off a special first birthday that was featured on Onto Baby earlier this year. Instead of a more traditional theme we wanted to make fun with our idea to have everyone come over for brunch and do “Pancakes in Pajama’s”. We used shades of blue in ombre scale and a reoccurring set of shapes in banners and dots to keep things cohesive.  For the littlest guests they were given swag boxes full of games and treats to make sure everyone felt included when the birthday boy opened gifts. For the quintessential smash cake, a multi-tiered inside out cake was made which hysterically Jackson would not have anything to do with. This was so much fun to plan and I look forward to years of more birthday parties for this handsome fella. (I know! I’m biased!) Big thank you to Lisa Boggs Photography for these amazing photos!

Meant to Bee Bridal Brunch

20 Aug

I have the pleasure of planning a sweet bridal brunch themed after honey and the phrase “meant to bee” for a group of women this spring at Potomac Point Winery. I pulled together a color story of mint, butter, and pinks and used fabulous linens from DC Rentals as a starting point. There are so many fun ways to bring together a theme and they don’t always have to be so literal but instead try something fun like honeycomb paper balls to inspire with texture and hexagon placemats as a nod to the hexagon of a bee’s honeycomb.

The ladies dined on a brunch menu of french toast, fruit parfait, a full biscuit bar, and a delicious cake from CakeLore. Signature drinks of Ginger Honey Cocktails and mimosas were passed by servers along with a wide range of Potomac Point Wines. Special thank you to our vendor team and I am so thankful to have had this Brunch featured on Weddings Chicks http://www.weddingchicks.com/2013/08/15/honey-themed-bridal-shower/

roaring 20’s

14 Jun

Last year I had to sadly say goodbye to my 20’s and make way into my 30’s and I thought there was no better way than to throw a wild Roaring 20’s party. We wanted to have a secret speakeasy themed party with casino tables, backjack dealers, champagne, and all the pearls, feathers, and fringe a girl could handle. Guests looked for the house with the red light and were welcomed to signature mixed drinks and brown paper bagged spirits. Everyone really turned out in their best speakeasy attire!  A big super huge thank you to Lisa Boggs Photography for the photobooth and Audra Wrisley Photography for the detail shots! (make sure to keep an eye out for some of your favorite DC vendors in the photobooth!!)
