May07 Sweet Shoppe 2015

“What’s sweeter than a Sweet Shoppe? A Sweet Shoppe themed 1st Birthday!  Kaitlyn’s 1st Birthday combined the pretty pastels of a Parisian Sweet Shoppe and the fun and loving nature of a very special 1st Birthday at Chubby Cheek Cafe in City of Industry, CA .

There was no stone left unturned when Skybox Event Productions planned out every pretty detail of this birthday.  From the milk carton Goodie Boxes and the paper Bakery and Ice Cream Truck centerpieces, to the Patisserie Window backdrop of the dessert table (with the prettiest and most delicious treats from Merely Sweets!), mini party hats for kids, and all signage created by Little Ink Print.

The party kicked off with a delicious buffet of sandwiches, salads, pasta, and more!  Ice Box Creamery was there with an adorable Ice Cream cart that was ready to serve up some tasty and cool treats to all in attendance.

Kaitlyn’s family and friends were able to enjoy making their own photo Flipbooks with the help of Flipbook Frenzy.  They also had fun with cute and quirky Caricature drawings of themselves done by Toon Upz.

There is no sweeter way to spend a Sunday, than by celebrating the 1st Birthday of a special little girl.”

Apr02 Clover’s First Fiesta 2015

This is one of my all time favorite parties.  It’s detailed and beautiful, but looks like tons of fun! I can’t even do this spectacularly detailed party justice to here is Alexandra:
As an event stylist, it was only natural to have been planning Clover’s first birthday for quite some time. A well-designed gathering is my passion, and what better way to celebrate our baby’s first year of life than a backyard party with 40 of our friends and family. Clover’s first year was spent by my side as I continued my work and travels. She came along for the ride and spent a lot of time at parties, so I was inspired to embrace that theme in her life and throw her a beautiful fiesta.
It was a sunny day, and we transformed our little backyard into a festive space full of flowers, succulents, gold pinatas, and white tissue flags. An artist friend even painted a watercolour donkey for guests to play pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey!
Food was a highlight! My talented husband planned and cooked the beautiful menu including tortilla soup, chill pork tacos, salmon and halibut tacos, home-made salsas, the works! We finished things off with a stunning tres leche cake with spiced chocolate cake frosting and homemade churro flavoured marshmallows for guests to roast over a bonfire.
Guests took time to write Clover a message in different cards that she’ll read on her birthday over the next 18 years. I can’t wait to open those messages throughout the years to come!
We ate and mingled and celebrated our sweet girl. She loved it. Guests left with a tiny succulent in hand, and Clover went down for a long nap. :)

Mar26 Oh Deer 2015

Love this gorgeous baby celebration!

“Mama to be, Rayven Walker, is a fun, fabulous fashionista who is the talent behind Beauty & the Blush Makeup & Styling, one of the best bridal beauty providers in DFW! It was such a pleasure for us to come together for an industry baby shower to celebrate her and her Baby Boy on the way. Rayven has chosen a modern woodland theme for her nursery so we decided to play off of that for her shower as well. We chose gender neutral pastels against a classic palette of black and white. We played with geometric shapes, gold animal figurines and lush garden floral to pull of a design that was both very Rayven and still not too girlie for her little man!” -Jen
