{REAL PARTY} Ava's Strawberry Lemonade Party

I received a sweet strawberry lemonade party in my inbox by the gorgeous Kristina from Modern Frills. I have been an avid fan of Kristina's blog for quite a while now, and I am excited to share the gorgeous party she styled for her daughter Ava. I adore the cake stands, crate & bunting, there are so many adorable elements that come together beautifully. Well done Kristina! x

"Strawberry Lemonade is a favorite of the birthday girl so it was an easy choice for the party theme. Stefanie of Anne and Blue Paperie took my ideas and created a perfect vintage inspired birthday invitation along with party printables to coordinate with the theme.

Once the invitations were in the mail, I began the dessert table preparations. I started by looking for a white tablecloth that had a vintage feel. I was unable to find exactly what I was looking for so I purchased a simple white tablecloth from Target. I went with a size larger than I actually needed. After cutting the tablecloth down to the correct size and hemming the edge, I used the extra fabric to add a simple ruffle around the edges.

The backdrop of the dessert table was made using the "Happy Birthday" banner by Anna and Blue Paperie. I also made a few fabric flowers from vintage inspired kitchen towels and some remnant fabric using fabric stiffener (purchased at a local craft store) and a tutorial from Jones Design Company

The rest of the dessert table came together with cupcakes, fresh strawberries and some amazing cookies by Callye of The Adventures of Sweet Sugarbelle. The birthday girl and her friends sipped lemonade and danced in tutus with her dance teacher. It was a perfect day!"

Vintage Damask Sweets Table

I recently styled this candy table for an intimate 21st birthday party. I immediately fell in love with the room at the venue, as it oozed class, elegance & vintage damask. The client chose the colour purple to tie in with the ivory & black decor & I introduced some sparkle to the table with a mirrored cake tray & diamante ribbon & chocolates. The end result? Simple & elegant!

Marisol, owner of the Ritzy Market- flowers and event design sent in her son's Herbie inspired party all the way from Mexico City! I grew up watching the Herbie movie and I was constantly surrounded by vintage Volkswagon Beetles (my father's hobby is to find & restore them) so I immediately connected with this party.

I love the bright primary colours Marisol used and the clever way  the table runner featuring Herbie's racing number was used. It is a fresh change to see some healthy snacks incorporated onto a party table & I also love the printed labels, favor boxes & colour co-ordinated snacks! Well done Marisol, thank you for sharing!

Kicking off a new segment on our blog, Real Party Submissions! Our first real party submisson is by the lovely Dorangela, of Two Prince Bakery Theater. She held a Dinosaur theme party for her 6 yr old son and she wanted it to have a natural & fresh feel. She certainly was up for a challenge as the party had to be ''completely gluten free, casein free, soy free & vegan"! Dorangela did a fabulous job at presenting the food & and I love the little details such as the dino crudite & dino dirt cups. Well done Dorangela!

For those of you that know me well, you know I swoon over anything related to NYC. This party styled by One Charming Party is no exception. A wonderful & clever party theme for a special little boy. I love the details, particularly the birthday cake. There is even a DIY tutorial on their site. As Sinatra sings "Im gonna make a party out of it, in old New York. If I can make it there, I’d make it anywhere. It’s up to you, New York, New York".
