{Mermaid Tails Birthday}

Once again I am really honored to have been given the opportunity to work for this family.  I've been doing parties for them for quite some time now, and every time I think we create something even more stunning!  Our little girl wanted a Mermaid party.  The inspiration is a mermaid tail her mom got for her.  I immediately knew the color scheme I wanted for this celebration.  A color combo of aqua, mint, salmon and rose.  This has got to be one of my new favorite parties!

Every girl invited would get her own mermaid tail as a party favor, so I already knew we needed to prepare a table for the girls.  Each chair was decorated with a personalized sign with their name and of course, their tails.  Centerpieces included seashells, corals, pearls, flowers, you name it.  A delicate and simple display of ocean inspired items.  Each table setting included aqua plates, a personalized water bottle and a cookie, along with some fab wooden cutlery.

The background for our main table was simple yet fabulous.  I used yards of ribbon in our coordinating colors over cream colored fabric framed by two giant balloons with handmade tassels.  The banner and garland in the middle was the perfect accent.

Tons of desserts and props were featured in this extravagant sweets table. A huge mermaid tail, corals, starfish, pearls and gold frames gave the finishing touches to a vast array of decadent desserts and candy.  A gorgeous cake and cupcakes take front center in this beautiful table.

I hope you enjoyed the pictures just as I loved creating this party!

{Little Monster Birthday Bash}

A colorful celebration for a first birthday!  Our Little Monsters were a huge hit with guests at this fantastic party.  The color palette was a rainbow of bright colors combined with chevron print in orange and black.

I wanted to feature a large fluffy monster as our perfect background for this amazing dessert table.  Large eyes and a mouth gave life to this blue monster.  My friend Johanna Padín from GloboArte created two stacked monster balloon columns to frame our background, as well as a stand alone yellow monster for the favor/gifts table.

The dessert table is to die for with all of this color and sweetness.  We served our usual favorites: monster cookies, eyeball Oreos, marshmallows in stripey straws, brownies with monster toppers, cheesecakes and nutella tarts.  The amazing cake by Jovanna Valentín at Jovadiel Party Shop was a perfect design inspired on the little monster clip art we used for all the paperie.  We used several of our monsters to decorate the areas.

I set up a drinks station with fruit punch and embellished water bottles with stripey straws.  Items such as cups, napkins and favor boxes are from Oriental Trading.

Favor bags were transformed with cute monster faces and a thank you tag attached with ribbon.  The favors included more candy, monster cups, plush items and monster rubber duckies from OT.

I adore the centerpieces!  I created fluffy monster heads with googly eyes for a fun pop of color.

This has to be also one of my favorite parties so far.  Hope you enjoyed the photos!
