I am finally back to writing here on the blog after more than a year away.

I am back and I wanted to share with you some of the projects that I worked in 2013.

The first one I am sharing is my son’s 1st birthday. Yes, we had another baby, a baby boy that keeps bringing joy to our lives everyday.

This party was by far my favorite! I had so much fun planning it and bringing it to life (in just 3 weeks). My husband had asked me to do a Noah’s Ark theme and I loved the idea. Once I knew the theme I started to plan it but wanted to do the Ark my way :)

Our baby is such a fun boy, and he loves his toys, his food and Sophie (his teething Giraffe). Based on that I decided to create his ark, with the things he loves.  And if you know me and my designs you already noticed that all my parties are a reflection of the invitation I create for such event. This one was no different. Here is the invitation I created for the party:

And from there the party took shape… 

It is hard to tell you my favorite detail as I loved everything about how it all turned out.

We had in our backyard and the poles from the rented tent were the frame for the rainbow background I created using yarn. There was a lot of DIY projects for this party.

We had a naked cake (or almost naked) by Dona Doce Cakes as the centerpiece of the cake table and his name was used throughout.

A friend of ours used his carpenter skills and made the Ark that I used as the centerpiece for the favor/dessert table.

We had cars, trains and giraffes cake pops (amazingly delicious) by Cake Pops by Xpressive Designs.

Lots of candy and bonbons as part of our Brazilian tradition, and of course, my latest obsession: MINI TO GO CONTAINERS! They were personalized with Noah’s name and inside I baked my favorite Orange Cake (recipe here).

I want to thank everyone that made this afternoon so enjoyable:

The amazing pictures (aside from the invitation that  I took with my phone) were by the ever talented Renata Rivera.

A huge thank you to my husband for supporting me ( and my out of the box ideas :P), to my mom and mother in law that were a huge help, and to the amazing Neide Lima, from GIF Floral and Events Designs, for bringing her talent and her friendship all the way from Orlando. To my dear friend Luciana from  Arts and Glamour Events and her husband for creating the Ark, and all the help and patience with me :).

Hope you enjoy the pics!

See, I told you here that I would be back :)

My sweet boy just turned 3 – ok, it was in August, and we are in October, but who is counting….

This year he asked me to have a diver party – after watching Finding Nemo for a billion times I guess he became attached to that diver’s mask.

And being a loving mom that I am ( and a party planner trying to avoid the characters for as I long as I can) I went for it.

I have to say that the party was planned in 4 weeks.

“4 weeks of working 40 hours outside the house and then putting everyone to sleep to start working on the decor”  kind of weeks.

We decided to have it at our clubhouse, by the pool, but just like last year, an uninvited guest decided to show up.

This year was Hurricane Isaac.

Who decided to come on the DAY OF THE PARTY….REALLY??????

I decided ( Isaac forced me to it) to have the party at our house, and I actually loved how it turned out.

The first thing was coming out with the invitation. I knew I wanted to be colorful and wanted to have some kind of texture ( not just straight out of my printer), so my sister in law from Tudo de Bom Arte Festas   and I came out with this diver, that looked jut like Josh, with curly hair and all.

From there it was easy peasy.

My dear Sil worked hard to make every detail of this invitation, and if the help of Michaels the result was one ( more like 40) adorable invitation.

 

What do you think?

I will be adding these one to the shop soon

:)

Happy Wednesday!!

Can’t wait to show you pictures of the party

Spring is here!! At least on the blog it is!

I’ve been working on a lot of things behind the scene and I am sorry for the lack of posts.

The month of January came and went and I can’t believe February is here.

I received pictures of the cutest 1st birthday party ever.

My little niece turned one and my sister in law did a great job at creating this amazing party !

She decided to go with a Picnic theme and came to me for ideas.

The result was beautiful!!

The pictures are from the talented Helio Campos, a Brazilian photographer that lives in Brasilia.

The party was done by my sister-in-law herself , with supplies from my Etsy store and all the customized party goods done by the talented Tudo de Bom company, in Brasilia.

I loved the colors and the mix of textures, the bird houses used all over the decor, the fabric tulips, my paper straws used on the Pinwheels and all the CANDY, oh boy, they look divine!!

I even spotted my favor tubes.

Hope you are ready for some eye candy images.

So as I said it here  I was asked by my friend Roxy to help with her son’s 1st birthday. The party was last weekend and it went really well.They are such a wonderful family. We went with a beach theme and she wanted something simple but special. Here are a few photos:

 

 

 

Here’s the birthday boy, Jaden. Isn’t he so adorable?!!! I just want to eat him up!

I made this banner for Jaden. Oh, note to self, double side tape DO NOT stick to a brick wall!

Look at them, they were laughing at us for not being able to sing Happy Birthday in spanish.

I used the 3 foot balloons again and the kids loved them! They wanted to take them home :)

The Pinata

Here is my Joshua giving Jaden a birthday hug. Too cute!!

I loved doing this party for Jaden. I’m ready for the next one….anyone?
