This slumber party themed event was anything but sleepy.  We used a bright, bold and vibrant color scheme of hot pink, lime green, orange and turquoise.  Above and below are shots of the bedroom vignette we created as guests entered the party.

The escort cards were sleeping masks.
A mini suitcase served at the container for the cards and gifts 
The cocktail and hors d’oeuvre room was decorated with bedside lamps
 filled with night cream containers
The smaller cocktail tables had pedicure toe separators floating in a cylinder with a candle  
The kids dinner table centerpieces featured over sized toothpaste and toothbrushes 
The adult centerpieces had these bright & whimsical fresh florals
What is a slumber party without sweets?  Check out this fun 3 tiered cake.
 We also created this “Sweet Dreams” candy buffet 

We dressed the table to look like a bed topped it with jars and jars of sweet dreamy candy.


This Nick at Nite themed Bar Mitzvah was bright, bold and full of fun. 
We used neon spandex linen for the tables and chairs. The centerpieces were glass cylinders with neon fabric that draped all the way to the ceiling. 
Here is the large entrance sign.  It’s hard to tell the scale of the sign but it was approximately 5′ x 5′

Here is the menu detail with the iconic Nick@Nite splat
This is a shot of the GOBO.  It’s hard to tell but when the lights were lowered
 it shined in a neon green color
Splat cakes!  These mini cakes were served at each table and the larger cake was for Nick to feast on.
We also served mini milk bottles to each guest during cake time
We also tied  Twizzlers  around each napkin roll in the 3 bright party colors. 


Sugary Pink, Cotton Candy Blue, Fluffy Popcorn yellow and Mint Ice Cream green was the color scheme for this sweet pastel carnival party. 
Above is the table centerpieces.  I used ticket rolls as a base
 and topped them with faux carnival favorites.

Giant pastel balloons and handmade bunting decorated the ceiling and gave the
room a festive carnival fee.

A sneak peek of the 8′ custom carnival sign 
 (we hand cut all of our letters to give our signs dimension)

We also created vintage style food signs for all of the stations around the room

Full view of the sign.  We took inspiration for the fabulous
Hostess with the Mostess’ carnival party a few years ago.

I love little details, {even if most people don’t even notice}. 
 Here we tied bubble gum garland around the cocktail tablecloths

After indulging in the carnival fare, it was time to burn off some of that sugar buzz…

So they danced….

danced, danced
the night away!
