The holiday season came and went, and took my computer’s hard drive along with it! So sorry for my lack of postage as of late. But I am back! Still not as strong as before, but slowly but surely. (aka, as soon as I get my computer fixed)
I hope you all enjoyed your lovely holidays and the time with your families and friends. Mine were just grand. 🙂
In celebration of a new year… here are some new fun discoveries on Etsy!
Although many of you may consider all those big red carpet events some of the biggest of the year, you are wrong. Sorry to break it to you. But if you missed out on this amazing birthday party I threw for my sister and her husband along with some of her friends….you missed it. Plain and simple. With a vintage inspired, Big Fish, countryside, early 50s theme.. this party was complete with Cocktails in mason jars, beer in the wheelbarrow, whiskey tasting and of course pie. We had a wonderful confetti pinata, made by my brother, chocolate tasting, bobbing for apples (which almost every guy actually did) and a bounce house in the back for the kids. It was a great night of relaxing eating pie on picnic blankets socializing and of course celebrating Katie and Jonce’s 30th Birthdays. I had so much fun planning this with my sister’s friends Paige and Kym. Although it was a lot of work, it totally was worth it! So here are some wonderful pictures, all courtesy of Ventola Photography. There are quite a few pictures. But there were just so many unique and wonderful moments! Enjoy!
One of my favorite parts of the whole experience was a surprise for the Birthday Guests! We had some of Katie and Jonce’s friends design special garments and pieces especially for the two to wear to their party. The day before we delivered the garments with a formal invitation to the party! They had known ahead of time where and when the party was…but none of the theme or decorating details and it was killing them! Katie’s dress is by the wonderful Monique Sandoval from Ouma, and her headpiece is by the talented Jenn Wood from Mignonne Handmade. Jonce’s bow tie is from the local wonder Aaron Kimberlin and his bowties at Dapper and Dash.
