a paris fete | pink princess birthday

We helped this four year old celebrate in style...and since we're currently working on her 5th bday we thought we'd get around to sharing her fete photos!

She wanted a princess party, but since we like to do things different, we decided to drop in a little french flair. From the custom invites to the beautiful lunch table settings, we made this little mademoiselle smile!

We created a custom banner, with a happy birthday wish, in french. Then we worked with Just a Mom Confections to create these beautiful Eiffel Tower cookies for favors for our guests and even got a french mime to entertain the kids.

And then we finished up the party with a fun pink Eiffel Tower topped cake!

Let the planning begin!

I'm so excited for all of the fun I'm going to have this summer & fall.

I've been meeting with lots of brides, grooms, mother's of the bride, etc. and I'm getting very excited about all of the possibilities. Lots of great ideas and some really amazing venues - ones I've worked at before (St. Francis & One Fort Mason) and new spaces that I'm hoping to get to work at (Cavallo Point Lodge & The Flower Conservatory)

I'm super excited because lighting is going to be a big part of these events and lots of color. Plus I'm getting the chance to help them design their events as well as their invitations.

Can't wait for Envelopments to launch their new papers so I can get busy working them into the mix!

Went to an amazing event at Gumps yesterday with a good friend and long time client. We saw some beautiful table ideas and got to taste yummy cake from some old friends at I Dream of Cake. One of their cakes was my favorite of the day. It was so different and unique and it didn't even look like cake, but let me tell you it was soooooo moist and delicious!!! PET PEEVE: beautiful cake that is dry. no good!

I also found out a favorite cheese cake vendor now does cake cake, too. Elegant Cheesecake was so kind to send us home with a mini cake in our swag bag! My hubby thanks them too as I let him have half.

Look out, my enthusiasm and excitement might wear off on you!
