Before we say goodbye to summer....

I have so many things to catch you guys up on.  The past few months has been consumed with family activities. From the birth of my daughter to
the passing of my beloved father, I have been surrounded with loved ones for support. The addition of our little lady attracted the family youngsters to constantly want to spend time at my house. So with summer coming to an unofficial end, and the kids back to school, I will have some time to update my blog. 

During the summer I was asked to collaborate with Onida Cruz of Onida Cruz Weddings & Events
 (Opulent Creations Events) to create simple party ideas. I knew it would be a blast to partner with Onida especially being new moms of precious little girls, with tons of ideas to share. We started with a pink and green (one of my all time favor color combos) Asian inspired design.  The "Oh" (pun intended) so talented Olesha of Oh! Boudoir Photography took the photos for us.

Kids tables just their size were set with wooden chopsticks, takeout boxes to store their treats, and
fortune cookies acted as placecards. I simple cut out strips of paper and stuck it partially into the fortune cookie to be reveal the names.  A bamboo plant set on top of a bamboo block placemat, moss balls, and cute kimono boxes anchored the table perfectly as the centerpiece.

No care in the world about the design and styling... all they want are those balloons!
And of course they loved the goodies on the sweets display!
I loved the ever description Onida gave me over on her blog.. "sweet treat architect"! I'll definitely have to use that one! (Thanks Nida!) .  The kids were on a sugar high after packing their take out boxes with  cake pops, pink polky biscuit sticks, chocolate covered fortune cookies, and Rice Krispie pops and washing all the sweets down with strawberry milk!
Chocolate covered fortune cookies atop a bed of chow mein noodles for that extra Flair!
I couldn't resist these fan plates, they were a great find and looked great were perfect for our theme.  How cute does the Cake pops look on the plate??

I embellished the strawberry milk with parasols... cute, fun and worked well with the theme 
I had a great time creating these tablescapes with Onida this summer! We put our heads, talents, tons of props together to bring you festive party ideas! Stay tuned for more!!
