Pizzazzerie is a wonderful source for entertaining and party styling, with services that include everything from high-end product and tabletop styling to product styling for boutique shops and large-scale gift stores! They even have a very resourceful section for parents, called “Children’s Gift Guide.” This whimsical Blue & Yellow baby shower by Courtney Dial, founder and head editor of Pizzazzerie, has some adorable ideas, including a creative blessings board & a favors board. From Courtney: “My sweet neighbors asked me to help them design a baby boy shower for a friend. We decided on a simple blue and yellow theme with splashes of pastel green. Since we knew the baby’s name, we incorporated his monogram and name for an added touch! My favorite part of this shower was the blessings board. We wanted a way for guests to share a little prayer or blessing for the new baby. We also incorporated the same idea for the favor board which was filled with small mints. Guests enjoyed homemade vanilla cupcakes, chocolate covered strawberries, and chocolate candy in addition to lots of other yummies and treats! Fresh lemonade and sweet tea was served as well.”

How do you transform a palatial Brentwood backyard, with a guest list of over 80 kids and 135 adults, into a cozy purple-feelin’ farm fete? Hire the expert kid-ONLY-celebration party planners at SEND IN THE CLOWNS! Leesa Zelken, the owner, left no “hay bale” unturned in coming up with the all of the clever details and the imaginatively well-thought out concepts in bringing this vision to life for a super-sweet 4 year old and her adorable 1 year old brother. And just like naming a story or a movie, she calls it Down On The Farm!

So how did Leesa create all this magic? ”3 Words: Balloon. Barn. Facade.”, was the first thing Leesa said when imagining the transformation of the vast space. And from there the vision took off. “My knack for creating magical birthday scenes is probably rooted in my background as an actress. Combine that with a 20 year track record, creating all sorts of party memories both big and small. “For me, parties are very theatrical,” she said. “It has to feel like you’re walking into that world.”Vendor Credits: Event Planner: Send In The Clowns Dessert & Candy: Sweets Indeed and Sweet and Saucy Shop Photography: pictures were provided by Sweets Indeed and Send In The Clowns.

We’ve been getting so many beautiful photos of parties in our mailbox these days, and we truly thank all of our creative friends for allowing us to post some of your most incredible work! Ok, so this particular birthday party immediately caught our eyes, as I personally have never thought a monkey themed party could be this adorable. But for the super talented Esther from My Bride Story anything is possible! For her son Grant’s first birthday, Esther created the most charming Curious George-inspired party in only TWO WEEKS!! The party was not only filled with delightful decorations and details, but was also budget-friendly and had all gifts donating to a charity called “Giving Children Hope.” Taken place at Olive Studio, a photo studio in Fullerton, CA, Esther thought it would be fun for her guests to take family shots at the studio while celebrating. For decor, she incorporated bright reds, yellows & blues, and used creative & brilliant ways to save and make it a budget-friendly party whenever possible. Here are some great ideas directly from Esther:
It really wasn’t until 2 weeks before the party that I started renting items and picking things up from here and there. I found a lot of great things on the clearance racks and at Michaels. The studio already had a lot of cute props and furniture so we just re-arranged it a bit and created a casual outdoor party atmosphere under the tree with picnic blankets & throw pillows. We also brought in some of our own furniture as well.
Things I borrowed:
-The lanterns that were hung from the tree were borrowed from my sister.
-Party trays & plates for the dessert bar and the red wagon where we placed our drinks were borrowed from Kristine.
-Kayla’s Kakes, kindly provided the cookie lollipops with mini cupcakes.
-All floral arrangements & wheat grass box were also kindly provided by Jina from T.H.E flower.
Simply, the cutest cupcakes and cupcake toppers ever!
