2 celery ribs, chopped
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1 1⁄2 tablespoons plain fat-free yogurt (regular or Greek)
salt and pepper

Combine chicken, celery and chives in a medium bowl. I use bone-in, skin-on chicken breast that I season with salt, pepper and garlic and roast at 400 degrees for 30-35 minutes. Discard the skin and bones and cut into cubes.
Add mayo and yogurt and stir to combine.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serve on a whole wheat bun or scoop onto a bed of lettuce.

Remembering Yesterday- America’s Top Model 12th Birthday Pool party

The year is 2010! My niece was turning 12! So what better way to celebrate you then a themed pool party. During this time America’s top Model was one of the top rated shows and we thought it would be great to incorporate this concept in a party collection.

For this intimate party of a few friends and family we created a mini candy bar and small beverage station and baked some cupcakes. Hot pink and Zebra was the exciting new trend for parties and we incorporated that color palette in our tablescape and centerpiece. Collages12 copyCustom Box of Questions favors were given to her friends…

Remembering Yesterday- Life is a Gift Baby Shower… Purple Passion

The year was 2012 and we were ask by our client to create a stylish Life is a gift baby shower in purple. We were delighted to create this specialty party and incorporate images that we had taken during their maternity session a month prior.

We created a dessert bar focal point using cupcakes, chocolate fountain parfait and water bottle favors. Using tulle and paper lantern to accent the table. Also a large sign was placed  above the hand made cupcake stand (we created using a large box wrapped in wrapping paper with ribbon and we used custom favor tag to place in the front)

Remembering Yesterday- 40/40 Birthday Celebration

The 40/40 Club Celebration

DSC_0217 - Copy

The year was 2010 and I was totally feeling myself… I had received my event planners certificate the year prior I was shipping party décor nationwide and I was shooting wide range of social events, So when my hair dresser Valencia (Styles By Vee) approached me to assist in planning her husband’s 40th surprise birthday party I was all in.  We went over all that I can do.. This what I call The total package, planning, arranging vendors photography and party supplies. So we went to work to put on an event that is still one of the best memories of putting on a great party. Valencia and I spent weeks planning preparing and doing site visits to secure both location and other details (cake and table rentals) We secured Aj’s Catering for the food Hair salon for the venue DJ 6five  as the Dj Bliss for the Cake and we took care of the rest.
