{Real Parties} An Apple Harvest Birthday Party

Photobucket

Fall is almost over, but I just had to share this DARLING apple harvest party with you! Katie Nguyen Wells of Petite Social styled the most adorable birthday party for a recent client. The party was held in a beautiful open field and near a large oak tree. Katie used nature as the backdrop to the styled tables.

Photobucket

The children's table was so quaint. The color scheme used, kraft and red, is an all time favorite of mine! Katie incorporated burlap as well which I LOVE.
{I think I might have a slight addiction to burlap!}

Photobucket

The kraft paper lunch boxes held a delicious, fuss-free lunch of wrapped sandwiches, chips and fresh fruit served in mason jars.

Photobucket

Each little party guest took him a goody bag filled with items from a scavenger hunt and apple harvest themed cookies by JP Creatibles.

What a pretty and simple homemade cake!

And the mason jar arrangements added the perfect amount of charm and frill to the party!

{Real Parties} You Are My Sunshine!

Photobucket

Get ready for a serious dose of cuteness with this bright and cheerful first birthday party based on the song, You are My Sunshine! Joanne Wuneburger from Oh Goodie Designs did a FABULOUS job styling this beyond cute party! Joanne worked closely with her client, Paige Kelly, who just so happens to be a friend of mine. Paige, along with her sister and mother, are party savvy and ALWAYS produce the most stylish parties {see here, here, here and here}!

Paige and her mom, Cindy created this fun tutu wreath along with some of the poms at the party.

The cakes were AMAZING. Piper's personal cake was adorable and I can't get over the tiered cake with lyrics from, You are My Sunshine.

{Real Parties} A Perfectly Pink Princess Party

Photobucket

My good friend, Nesi (see the Monkey See, Monkey Do party she planned last year), recently planned an adorable pink princess party for her daughter Madeleine who was turning 3. The party was full of sweet and girly details! A few of my favorite vendors, Kelly of WH Hostess, Cakes by Gina and the floral department at Whole Foods (Woodway) helped make the party extra special.


Photobucket

Kelly designed the cutest centerpiece sticks along with other pretty paper goods...

Photobucket

I love how Nesi "sprinkled" crowns and jewels along the table. It was an inexpensive way to make a nice statement!

Photobucket


Desserts tables are still the rage, so Nesi put together a pretty table with lots of delicious treats. I love the 3 foot balloons as the backdrop which were inspired by the dessert table queen, Amy Atlas.

Photobucket

The cake was GORGEOUS as you can see! As usual, Cakes by Gina did an excellent job!

Photobucket

The party was actually a joint birthday party with Madeleine's cousin, so they of course shared the cake.

Photobucket

Kelly's centerpiece sticks made the table pop and Sue B Sweets made the delicious and beautiful cookies.

Photobucket

And what would a princess party be without a visit from a "real" princess?! Sleeping Beauty made an appearance and the girls loved every moment with her!

Photobucket

The sweet birthday girl!
Thank you, Nesi, for sharing Madeleine's party with us!
