Winter ONEderland

Today we celebrated Ryan's 1st birthday  with a Winter ONEderland type birthday that will forever be one of my favorite days ever!!!

I decided on the theme after searching for winter birthday ideas on pinterest!!  His birthday is so close to Christmas that I wanted to be sure not to have a Christmassy theme but more of a wintery magical one!  Plus I knew there would be a ton of after Christmas sales that I could take full advantage of for decor and it worked to my favor. 
I chose Red and Aqua for the colors because I saw another party done in the same colors and I loved it.  Never would have put these two colors together on my own but I think they look great!  I think even though the forecast was calling for unusually warm temperatures everyone felt the winter magic.

I love parties and party planning and tend to always go the extra step or mile ha when it comes to throwing one.  I love entertaining and making everyone happy and ensure everyone has a great time, this party was going to be no exception.  This party was definitely time consuming and I lost some sleep over some of the details, I had an absolute blast doing it and it was so worth it!

Ryan means the world to me and I wanted him to have the best birthday party imaginable.  A first birthday is a big deal and I wanted to make it was just that.  I want him to look back at this day and see how fun it was for everyone and how much love went into the day.  I think he will do that...OR maybe he will just think I am nuts for having a snow cone machine in the middle of winter!!!  Either way....


Of course I didn't pull this off all by myself.  I was actually super sick the day before so Deb's came to the rescue and saved the day with the errand running and nursing me back to health.

Amy and Chris - 6.16.12

A stunning bride, a handsome groom, one of the most fun set of family and friends I have ever seen...what do you get?!?!  The perfect fairy tale wedding!!!  For Amy and Chris I did the day of coordination.  Working with Amy was fantastic.  She is so organized and had a very vivid picture of how she dreamed every detail of her most special day to be.  The new Mr and Mrs Clarke really did have their perfect fairy tale and it was a pleasure working with them to accomplish their dream!
