Mermaid Under the Sea Birthday Party at the Carlsbad Lagoon, San Diego

On August 30th we celebrated my baby girl's First Birthday at the Carlsbad Lagoon, with a Mermaid themed party. We went to the Lagoon earlier this year for another birthday party, and when we saw the location, and the large deck that you get to rent for parties, we knew that this would be the best spot for Zoey's party. We had such a great time out there and how perfect is it to have a Mermaid party at a Lagoon. I really wanted to get a mermaid that would swim out of the water....but my husband vetoed that idea....I guess that would have been overboard :)

Party details:
• Mermaid & Starfish centerpieces
• Custom Cake designed by BC Cakes & Bakery
• Madeleine clam cookies
• Rice Krispies starfishes
• Goldfish bar
• Custom water bottle labels
• Custom onesie and tutu from Joy Shine Designs on Etsy.

We rented some kayaks and peddle boats for people to use during the party....you can see my son in the middle waving to us :)

I designed a 4 page accordian styled invitation where we were able to place multiple photos of Zoey that we had take throughout the year. The invitations are available for purchase at www.invitationparlour.com or our etsy store. We also have a 5x7 flat version of this invitation available on etsy as well.

And here are pictures of the birthday girl herself!

Yo Gabba Gabba Birthday Party - Aidan Turns 3!

Last year in August we had a summer Dancey Dance pool party for Aidan's 3rd birthday. At the time he was still into watching Yo Gabba Gabba, and I decided that he had to have a Gabba themed birthday. With the cute character's and fun colors, it was such a fun party to design for.

Party details:

• Yo Gabba Gabba character banner
• Brobee treat bag toppers
• Cupcake toppers
• Treat Signs 
• Hershey nuggets wrapped with the character's faces
• Gable boxes that looked like the boom box
• Muno cake custom made from Albertson's
• Muno pretzel sticks dipped in red chocolate
• Plex jumbo marshmello's dipped in yellow chocolate
• Jello cups with characters

We designed the invitations to look like the boombox on the front, open it up and you can personalize with your child's photos, and invitation wording. Order these invitations at: etsy.com  we also have a 5x7 flat card version of this invitations at: etsy.com

Bacara Resort & Spa Wedding Featured on Style Me Pretty

A couple of years ago I worked closely with bride, Nicole, on her Romantic/Vintage themed wedding. The wedding was at the gorgeous Santa Barbara Bacara Resort and Spa and it was planned out with an abundance of detail by the bride and her coordinator, Mary at VP Events. Together we designed all of her custom stationary to tie the whole event together (Save the Dates, Invitation Sets, Custom Monogram, Table names, Menus, Place Cards, Programs, Signs for the dessert & candy bar, Thank You Cards).

The wedding was later on was featured on the blog, Style Me Pretty. Here are some of the beautiful pictures captured by Elizabeth Messina.
