ALICE IN WONDERLAND BIRTHDAY


Referrals are the best!   I did a 1st birthday party in March and through social media I was contacted by a mom of a beautiful little soon to be 1 year old.    She wanted an Alice in Wonderland theme.

She gave me her daughter Mila's invitation and I took inspiration from it and went in Wonderland World.   Here are a few pics from the 1st Birthday.

VINTAGE CIRCUS BIRTHDAY

Supportive friends are the best, they help you out in ways they don't realize sometimes.    Tonight I had the honor and definitely the pleasure to be in charge of my friend Paola's son's 1st Birthday.

She asked me weeks ago, of course I said yes!     And we spent hours and days on the phone texting, talking, going out shopping and today was what it was all for......I hope I did her proud.    

But I owe her a thank you for reminding me what it is that I love to do.   Sometimes life happens and we get lost.   Tonight I was found, and can't wait to plan and design some new party spaces.

Check out some photos from tonight's party....and I must say a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ANTHONY GIANNI on his awesome 1st birthday.

I'M BACK........................................................

Well it's been 145 days since my last blog post.   I have to say that it's feels like years...a lot has happened in my life but it's time to jump back in the saddle.  

Just to explain my absence....earlier this year my husband of 9 years and I separated and it was devastating for myself and for my children.   I don't want to say time heals all wounds, but we are back on our feet now.  By the grace of god and the love of family and friends I am strong again and head of my household.

I have started back at my DIY projects on the house we had just moved into and at some point I will start back in the event business with my styling and rentals.   Right now my children are the most important thing to me so being home with them comes first.

Now that wont stop me from my projects...so here is just a little glimpse of what I've been up to recently and hopefully you will check back to see what else I have in store for my humble abode.
