4th of July Styled Shoot

We had so much fun putting together a sparkling 4th of July styled Shoot for Novelty Bride Magazine.   We wanted to represent the patriotic colors in a unique and glam way!  

When we think of 4th of July we thinking of time with family, red, white and blue and of course fireworks. We don't often has the opportunity to plan a beach wedding in Colorado, The Lake House at Cherry Creek gave us the opportunity to do just that. 

We fell in love with this amazing Hayley Paige gown from Anna Be and the rest of the details slide right into place. The Jewlery provided by Mark's Diamonds elevated the entire look. We used lots of texture, metallic and sparkle to create a romantic and cozy reception site. 

We will let the amazing images  from Decorus Fine Art Photography speak for themselves!

Putting the Art in Party!

When I set out to plan my daughters birthday, I knew I wanted something that would be fun for all of the kids with a fun fun design details. I asked Emma what she would want and she quickly said an “art party”! I set off to create a beautiful and fun joint birthday party for my two girls

Being an event planner for a living allows me to create beautiful events for other people, but this was the first time I could be my own client!  I knew I wanted something fun and interactive for the kids. I came up with the idea to cut and paint old refrigerator boxes into life size easels for the kids. The creation station featured paint pens, markers, artists wipes,(wet wipes) and bubbles. I put all natural food coloring in bubbles and when the kids blew the bubbles onto the canvas they popped and created art. Each child had a canvas with their name on it and had a blast creating their own masterpiece. To create a dramatic backdrop (and protect our fence!) I ordered plastic tablecloths that I hung so they appeared to be pouring out of paint cans, I designed the stickers for the paint cans to match the balloons, streamers, and tablecloths.

After creating masterpieces of their own the kids found their cookie placecards and went to work decorating their own cupcakes. One long table featured brightly colored flowers, aprons and cupcakes for each kiddo. I made the easels that held the cookies out of colored popsicle sticks.

Cake is probably my favorite part of any celebration and I have definitely passed that love on to my girls. Emma’s cake was a painting of curious George, which happens to be her favorite book, accompanied by a paint can made of cake and her sisters 1 year smash cake was a painters palate. Yes the yellow Curious George “picture”, paint can an palette are all 100% cake!! 

The moment Emma walked into the backyard and started pointing out every little detail, I knew this would be a party both of us would never forget.  We are FOREVER grateful to our dear friends Rachael and Gina for helping us bring our vision to life!

 

We are thrilled to see this party published on Pretty My Party
