Wow. I’m SO LOVING THIS theme! It was creeping up on me as I aimlessly navigated through Pinterest, until I saw this amazing concept, and I immediately started dreaming of hot summer days, mojitos, and dancing.
So I decided to try out the theme first on familiar grounds, and created our Annual Summer party in this theme. So fun! Too bad this is Seattle and we can’t ever depend on the weather being great. But guess what, there was tons of rum and everyone had a blast. So in your face, moody Seattle!
Let’s start with the star of the show, this Mojito Bar we set up! Make your own cocktails with mint leaves, coke in glass bottles for the Cuba Libres, and plenty of lime for everyone.
Then, the dessert table which I had to put a lot of thought into! Trying to keep with the tropical theme, I went with Coconut cupcakes, pineapple cake shooters, flan, and the goods.
And the cake! OMG, this cake.
A few more photos for your enjoyment. Message me for more ideas on how to get your party to come to life like this one!
So colorful!! This was for a 1st birthday for a super precious baby girl. Instead of opting for the usual light pinks, princess themes, this mama decided to go bold with bright colors and beautiful florals. I love it!
We lucked out with their wall in the dining room, as it was painted red, so instead of adding a backdrop, we incorporated our colors to their interior decor, and it couldn’t have been better.
With some beautiful paper flowers to brighten the space (you can find these flowers here: Tissue Paper Flowers
With all the colors on the table, we decided to keep the cake nice and simple. Buttercream rosettes are perfect for this kind of set-up.
On this next photo, you can see some cute Hello Kitty Cake Pops! We wanted a small incorporation of Hello Kitty here, that wouldn’t take away from the garden theme. Great idea!
This was such a lovely party to set up! An adult birthday, so we did our best to keep things classy without looking too girly or childish. We received one screenshot from our customer of the “vibe” they were looking for, and we rolled with it.
Starting off with creating these lovely wreaths for the backdrop… this was my favorite thing to create for this party! It created a minimalist look with very little effort.
Our tall Eiffel vases were a great addition to keep the eyes moving up and down on this dessert table. Elevation is key.
Meringue cookies in the jars, mini red velvet cupcakes, and chocolate cake pops complete the vibe.
And that cake! We opted to stick to buttercream for this one to keep the romantic look. Love how the ombre colors came out on this one.
Fresh locally grown flowers completed the look we were going for. We made the topper with our handy dandy Silhouette Cameo machine. It does wonders!!!
You’d only know if you’ve been through it. Cruise ship launches are the most arduous, creative, and unique events you’ll ever see.
The ever-changing environment (literally, spaces still being built, furniture being loaded, workers still finalizing details everywhere), it will definitely keep you on your toes!
It’s one thing to walk into a venue knowing its limitations and capabilities. But on a brand new ship, you’re looking at a newly finished masterpiece, susceptible to smudging of the still-wet paint. Everything is new, everyone is new, and everything we accomplish, it’s for the first time.
This was officially the 3rd ship I’ve helped bring out! Its probably my favorite project to be involved in.
Cant wait to share more about this incredible new ship.
Wow. Why did it take us so long to start blogging?
I must admit, it was a bit daunting to imagine the effort that goes behind maintaining a blog. I’m a busy girl, with the events we have lined up, a stay at home mom, and a moonlighting as a baker, I hardly have free time to sit and chat.
And yet here we are! I’m excited to be able to give you a glimpse of what goes on behind the curtains in our crazy world. Hope you enjoy the journey with us.
So let’s start from the beginning.
Hi! I’m Priscilla. I’m an event planner, baker, and self proclaimed hostess with the mostest. I love everything sweet, and I will take any opportunity to help put a party together.
