Jun16 Arts and Crafts for Celebration 2015

I’m totally obsessed with this party.  It is so beautifully designed and the desserts are so fabulous.  Here’s Jen Choi, mom to birthday girl and maker of all the lovely desserts:
“Most preschoolers’ parties in our neighborhood are at indoor gyms and they’re very standardized.  I wanted complete creative control and my daughter isn’t the typical “huge ball of energy”, so we sought after something a little more special.  She is a huge fan of arts and crafts (the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree as I’m a cake designer and dessert caterer), so I tried to curate the perfect party pumped with creative activities.
We kicked off the party by painting wooden whales, decorating them with glitter, and undersea stickers.  While the whales dried, we enjoyed artisanal pizza made with local ingredients (Marc makes the best pizza in Hoboken!) and home-made cocktails and seasonal summer brews (for the parents, that is).  After a fulfilling meal, we sang Happy Birthday, cut the cake and opened up the dessert table— peach macarons, vanilla cake pops, banana cream pies in a jar, traditional and mint Oreos, and assorted sweets.  The children participated in a cookie decorating session shortly after.  Each child received 4 blank cookies (starfish, whale, sea horse and sailboat).  They iced the cookies and adorned them with eyes, lips, sprinkles, jimmies, and sugar—to take home OR to eat on the spot.”

Mom loves all things pastels and florals, so creams, tans, pinks and whites were the theme of these precious newborn photos. Sweet Emmeline was surrounded by flowers, kissed a million times and cuddled close to mom and dad making these swoon worthy photos something to be cherished for a lifetime.

Jun12 A Goldfish Celebration 2015

Harrison turned two and it was celebrated in swimmer style. With a goldfish theme done right and an epic pool party to boot, it looked like a birthday party for the books.
