Last week, I received these adorable invitations for Sheridan's zoo birthday party in November. Jess at Polkadots and Pirates did an amazing job on them! I love the giraffe print that matches the banner I got. Sheridan just flipped when she saw them. I made labels for the chocolate envelopes to mimic the font and pink dots on the invite. I'll try to take a picture later :)
Another fun thing I got in the mail last week was this candle holder that I won from Parties by Hardie. Her pink is perfect for Sheridan's birthday at the zoo. Thank you so much!
On Saturdaay night, I made my annual pilgrimage to the Sound of Music Sing-a-long at the Hollywood Bowl. Before the movie starts there is a costume parade of audience members. It is hosted by Melissa Peterman of the "Reba" show and Charmaine Carr whom played Liesl in the movie. This is my 8th year attending and I LOVE it! I will try and share more later in the week.
On Sunday morning, I was in Santa Monica at the Jonathan Beach Club setting up a Tinkerbell party for a 1 year old. When I say "beach", I mean right on the sand! It was set for 27 kids and everyone had a great time. Unfortunately, my camera battery died, so this is all you get :(
I have a completely INSANE weekend planned. Friday afternoon, I am hosting a Mary Poppins party for a 5 year old. Bright and early Saturday morning, I will be setting up for a fundraiser in Pacific Palisades. They will be showing a backyard movie on a 100' screen for 250 people. It is a "Madagascar" theme and I am doing all of the decor. I am building crates for the front lawn to look like the animals were shipped from NY. The check in tables will be tiki huts and paper animal print lanterns will hang from the trees.
After I'm done setting up there, I am headed to a wedding of a family friend and setting up her reception. Wish me luck! Any pointers about keeping up energy levels? Looking fresh and beautiful after working and smelling like a pig? Sometimes party planning is just not that pretty people...sorry to burst your bubble!
