Embarrassingly, it's been almost a YEAR since I've posted on this blog, and I apologize. Kinda sorta (another thing my friend says).
You see, as a party AND wedding planner, I've been swamped with the wedding side of my business and even though that's no excuse for some, it is an insurmountable amount of work - not to mention blogging about it!
So, if you will 'forgive and forget', and do the next best thing which is to pick up and move on, I promise not to let you down again!
Let's fast forward to the present, scroll down, and I'll fill you in on a delightfully over-the-top 'Pink Princess' First Birthday Party that I did recently for parents of an adorable (you guessed it!), one-year-old! Maybe it'll be worth the wait!

However, yours truly likes to take it one step further, with personalized candies, creating each one to be uniquely different. Here are just a few choice examples from several events:

It's that time again...time to honor this year's graduates! Closing one door, and opening another....it's all bittersweet. But it can also be tasty!
For one Texas Tech grad, we set the party up at 'Triple J's Chop House and Brewery'', in Lubbock, Texas, where the party was held immediately following graduation. We used lots of red and black, of course!
Cheers to all the 2013 graduates!

Using white cake mix (2 boxes) and dividing the batter in half of each recipe, you should have 4 equal batches of white cake batter. Each one receives a different color (based on your Easter egg dyes) by dropping food coloring into the batters, and then mixing them well with your mixer. For my cake, I chose yellow (lemon), orange (orange), green (lime) and red (strawberry). Each color was flavored with 1/2 teaspoon of that particular color's extract flavoring, and then mixed again. This photo shows the 4 stages of the process of making this beautiful cake:
White cake batter is ready to color with strawberry, the lime batter is ready for the oven, a baked orange cake layer is cooling, and the lemon cake is ready to drizzle with Jello syrup before frosting.
Once each cake layer has cooled, prick a few holes in the top and spoon jello syrup (made according to the package) in the appropriate flavors over each layer. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate while making a whipped cream frosting. Right before serving, assemble and frost between each layer, finally finishing the entire top and sides of the cake. Refrigerate until ready to slice.
Hope your Easter was Happy!

In today's world, the internet has given us the opportunity to 'see' and admire, the creative talent discovered all over the world.
Talent that creates those beautiful parties and weddings. As a party and wedding planner, I'm always searching for uniquely different sources that offer classic designs with a twist!
Coming out from 'down under' is a cute little blog called 'Polka Dot Bride'.
Simple and charming, she focuses on photos more than text, to get her design ideas across. As a visual person, I love it!
Another 'love' of mine is Rose Gold. Anything in Rose Gold has my full attention! (Maybe because it's pink?) And with metallics being the new trend for weddings this season,The 'Polka Dot Bride' shares a touch of this beautiful color on her blog this week. It's a feast for the eyes...
For me, it's just pure heaven! Enjoy!

These ideas are so quick and easy, you'll be surprised at how nicely they go together, and they'll appreciate your last-minute thoughtfulness!
Here's what you need to create a perfectly 'sweet' Valentine!
White Almond Bark
Sugar Cookies (iced)
Medium Red or Pink Favor Box
Red Ribbon and Tags
Printer & paper
Begin your project by melting the almond bark. This is easily done in the microwave on low heat. As it melts, stir the bark until it reaches a usable consistency. Dip a pretzel rod quickly in the white almond bark, and tap softly on the edge of your bowl to remove drips. Quickly (before it hardens) roll the rod in a bowl of red and white sugar confetti hearts or Valentine sugar sprinkles until completely covered. Lay the rod on wax paper to set and harden. Continue until all the rods are covered and the white almond bark is gone.
While the pretzels are setting up, personalize and print out this cute candy bar wrapper from The Celebration Shoppe! So c-u-t-e! Cut to fit your candy bar, (I used a large Kit-Kat bar), and tape the wrapper to seal.
Pick Your Plum, but there are also some great DIY container choices on Pinterest).
Wrap with cello and tie with a pipe cleaner, attaching your tag.
Add your Pretzel Rods to a container making a 'bouquet', and then wrap it completely with cello. Tie with a pipe cleaner or twine and add your tag. Give out to family and friends...or do like I did, and give to the retirement center security guards that watch over the elderly (including my mom!)
Enjoy your Valentine's Day!

Every year six of us - better known as 'Just Us Girls' - get together at the beginning of the Christmas season and have a 'Cookies & Cocktails Party'.
A different color and theme is created for each year, and once our guests arrive with plates of cookies, the party has begun!
This past week we held our party and chose to use the modern colors of bright cherry red with lime green and pops of silver. So colorful, so easy, and so fun! Here are just a few photos before the guests (and their cookies) arrived.
'To get the party started' we served Christmas Appletinis, alongside a non-alcoholic 'Cranberry Crush' beverage and Cucumber-Mint infused water....
