While planning a Garden Party for Princesses, this very special request from my 7 year old sweetness, I asked "where do I draw the line"? I wanted her to have every little detail just so but didn't have the time or energy to devote to one more event that week. How I did it and saved my sanity...
Chose a place really close to home
Made sure this place already had tables and chairs
Ordered trays of food from the local BBQ joint (and had someone pick it up)
Used silk peonies and other pretties for the centerpieces instead of natural ones which require more care and time limits, not to mention wasn't in season
Set one special table for the Princess and her guests of honor and the rest were simple but coordinating
Made the mother of all Pinatas with all the girly goodies and glitter they could want and more
Supplied activities for the rest of the guests, like over sized bowling and a white chocolate fountain
Produced a photo booth with all the fluff and fun for silly faces
Lastly, I had help from the most wonderful friends and family in the world
Thankfully I was able to join in the fun and smiled the whole day.
Wood plates. Reminiscent of the vintage Hawaii we emulate in wedding design. What is more romantic than a beach side wedding with all the characteristics of Old Hawaii? An ECONOMICAL beach side wedding with all the characteristics of Old Hawaii, that's what. Call me frugal, but I happen to love that F word. So do most of my clients. I could easily spend someone else's hard earned dough, without a second thought, but that's not what they hire me for . Renting wood tableware can set you back, plus there is a risk of damage. Then you have to replace those pretty little things. For about the cost of renting basic china, we can supply your event with sustainable bamboo disposables or classic plastic in new contemporary styles.
Think Vertical! How much umpf can you pack into your small space? Well, a lot more than you think! If your event is outdoors, the vertical real estate is infinite, inside... a little more limited, but still has lots of potential! Try hanging interesting clusters like our beautiful soft chandeliers along with foliage to make an impact. You'll need lighting for your evening event, why not make it a focal point as well?
The Urban Dictionary defines it as... the art of celebrating all things beautiful... Oliver Platt once said, "Beautiful is in the eye of the beholder". Indeed, we concur! Celebrate YOUR beautiful! Glam it up. There is no parameter suggesting that if you go out of the lines, it is no longer GLAM. Make it your own, celebrate your style. One day you will look back remember with fondness. If you do you, there will be no regrets later on. As we age we tend to care less of trends and current fashion, so it stands to reason that no matter what the trend was YOU remain TIMELESS.
