{Maleficent Birthday Party}

Halloween is always a favorite holiday to celebrate and how lucky is this little girl to have a birthday so close to the date! She absolutely loves Maleficent and had been asking for a themed party since the movie released.  So this year we suggested a Maleficent inspired costume party at a local jungle gym.  We selected purple, apple green and black as our color scheme, and let me just say it looked amazing!

Read on for all the party details and lots of pictures!

Let us start with this cake, or should I say, this GORGEOUS cake!  Jovanna from Jovadiel Cake Designs came up with this adorable creation in black lace over purple fondant and a mirror frame with our girl's initial.  The rest of the cake speaks for itself.  Delicious and beautiful, a hit with all the guests.  To continue with the Maleficent inspiration she also created cupcakes with toppers featuring small mirror and the horns, of course. 

As for the desserts, deliciously created by Sugar Bliss, we wanted to take the Halloween route and crate spooky, curious and sweet treats.  Most of them inspiration gathered on Pinterest.  Chocolate covered apples with bling sticks from Treats by Taryn on Etsy, rice krispy treats, marshmallow brownie ghosts, nutella cheesecake tombs, witch fingers, and of course, the beautiful and cookies by Cookies by Suehery in lemon, coconut and vanilla flavors.  Simply amazing!

The whole setup was completed with green and black curtains, a custom made banner, dessert tags, signage, favor boxes and small themed decorations by yours truly.

I hope you all love this party as much as I do!  Hopefully it will bring some inspiration to your Halloween parties in the future.

{Baby Whale Shower}

Nautical themed parties are always a favorite for both baby showers and first birthdays especially this past summer.  So one more couldn't hurt, right?  I am still swooning over this darling baby shower.  Definitely loving the color scheme and all the little details that left guests and especially the mom-to-be speechless.

My client chose a nautical theme, since this will be the decor for their baby boy's nursery.  We decided on choosing navy, turquoise and aqua as our color scheme. The graphics from Basic Pixels by Pixels Paper Prints were perfect as we were searching for a cute baby whale to go with our theme.

As guests arrived to our venue, they were greeted by a welcome table and guestbook.  A seating area with a plush carpet, throw pillows and a huge puppy dog framed our small table that held fresh flowers, nautical themed props and a fingerprint guestbook for all of our guests.

On to the cake and desserts table.  The backdrop custom made nautical garlands and a banner framed by giant blue balloons and aqua tassels.  Tablecloths in navy and white stripes and turquoise.

Tons of sweets by Sugar Bliss by Mari completed the setting.  French macarons, chocolate truffles, nutella tarts, mini cheesecakes, macaroons and amazing cookies by my friend at Cookies by Suehery.  Those 3D cookies are to die for!

The fabulous cake was, as always, a masterpiece.  My friend Jovanna went above and beyond with the colors and the details in this cake.  Perfection!
