Your Dream gift – Waiting for you…

My Gift To You! DSC_9558

Last year during a chat and chew meet up with a few of my friends I gifted each one of them with a gift box and scallop paper. Explaining to each one of them that I desire to give them a gift of their hearts. Not really knowing what that is for each one of them the small gift box and scallop paper represented that for me. I also gifted myself with the box as well. With careful thought when I think of desires of my heart I write it down and place it in the box.

I explain to the ladies to open up their boxes in about six months to see the manifestation of their gifts.

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…

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.
