Sleeping Beauty Party

 
Our little darling chose Sleeping Beauty as this year’s birthday theme. So for the color palette we chose different shades of pinks, white & gold (especially gold sparkle…a princess just HAS to have her sparkle). We used doilies and tissue paper to make the banners which turned out beautiful and completed the look.   

 For the girls we made them beautiful crowns (tutorial) and gumball necklaces. I got the idea for the fabulous necklace stand from Life Ann Style 

 
For the Knights we picked up chest armor and shield from Dollar Tree and spray painted gold. For the swords I was originally playing around with the idea of making them wood swords but remembered how rough boys are with each other and decided to go with inflatable ones since they would most likely be smacking each other with them lol.

For our princess we bought this amazing hand-made Aurora Dress from Miquel Zotto, even after letting her play in it most of the day it held up extremely well and is still as beautiful as the day it arrived.

 
We opted for sandals instead of dress shoes but was not disappointed with the pretty pink sandals I got on Zulily.  

Per the request of the birthday girl Josh, myself and my parents also play dress up for the day (yes we are totally kids at heart too). Daddy got to be King Stefan and I was lucky enough to be Queen Leah. So I based our outfits off of the characters.  

  My dad’s outfit was so much fun and was super easy to make in order to make King Hubert’s character come to life.

The gift bags were book bags that we transformed into customized bags for the kiddos.   

We simply used our refurbished buffet table as the gift table and hung the Happy Birthday banner to complete the look.  

Then the birthday girl opened her presents on a pink chair made suitable for a princess. 

   There were so many details it’s hard to fit them into one post, there was a huge inflatable dragon flying above the tables, goblets for the girls, mugs for the boys, adventure coloring books, chicken, roasted potatoes, pinwheels, cake pops, French vanilla pink velvet cake, and other goodies galore.

  

    

At the end of the day we were blessed to have so many friends and family join us to celebrate another wonderful & healthy year.

Over 1,000 petals went into making all of these roses but it’s totally worth it to see the smile on the bride & groom’s faces when they see the cake for the first time 😊
Congratulations Olivia & Donavan!

Celebrating a good friend turning a quarter of a century

Last week we celebrated one of my good friend’s 25th birthday with a surprise party which was her loving hubby’s idea. Paul came to Alasha & I with the idea of throwing a party for the love of his life because she was reaching one of life’s milestone birthday and we immediately volunteered to help. Alasha made the reservation and gave out the invitations and I was in charge of getting the birthday girl to the restaurant and of course making the cake.

So Tracie thought that she and Paul were meeting Alyssa, Josh & I for dinner. And she never suspected otherwise so it was so cool to see the pure surprise when she saw her family and friends all sitting together and everyone yelled SURPRISE! It was truly awesome 🙂 All in all the evening was a success and after good food with good company we had dessert and finally went home after closing down the restaurant.
