Birthday Parties!!

Simply a Perfect Planning Day! I always enjoy attending a good party. What I enjoy even more is PLANNING/COORDINATING a great party!. This weekend I'm excited about the 45th Birthday of LORNA! and a Soothing Saturday Evening with Shay, "Partying with Parkey". Both invitations were created around a theme and that theme will carry on throughout their events. For those attending, it's going to be a fantastic party weekend!!! Look for photo's soon after the partying ends.

I'm sure most have had the opportunity to view the show "Sweet 16", well Simply Perfect Peace has the distinct honor of planning a high end celebration February, 2010. Cant give away too many details, but believe me when I say it's going to be a very fashionable event. So... since I cant reveal their details, out of the fun of what the Sweet 16 represents my birthday party posting inspiration comes from a very swanky Sweet 16 that was featured a while back on The Knot's sister site PartySpot.

Real Parties: South Beach Sweet 16

Whatever event you're planning, make the invite entice people to want to come. This invite set off the tone for aquas, Miami Beach vibe, and a lounge feel.

The party was held at Studio 450 in New York City, which covered the entire top floor of the building, complete with a wraparound terrace and amazing floor-to-ceiling windows.

I love taking a theme, like crystals, and using them in all spots possible.

Two of Nora’s favorite colors, pink and blue, set the tone for the party. One side of the venue was drenched in cool blue tones with ice, crystals, water accents, and blue and white flowers.

Use your colors in all ways possible, especially with lighting. Lighting has such an incredible look and creates pictures with depth.

Opposite the blue side, the hot pink area was ultrafeminine and overflowed with feathers, jewels, billowy fabric, and chandeliers. It also had a hidden area that featured a long banquet table where guests could eat and relax.

To capture all the memories of the night, a photo booth was on hand, which also projected the pictures onto a wall so everyone could see them. The birthday girl got to take home a bound book of all the photos from her amazing Sweet 16.

Bartenders made mocktinis including virgin mojitos, pina coladas, daiquiris, cosmos, and more. Each was topped off with a hot pink straw.

Even though it's a Sweet 16, bartenders created "mocktini's" for the teenagers. You could carry that over into your wedding or event where alcohol will not be used. It creates a fun vibe and you can incorporate your favorite flavors or the events colors.

This display of favorite candies at a bat mitzvah might be a dentist‘s worst nightmare -- or a 13-year-old‘s dream come true!

Fun favors like the Candy Bar are always a hit! Invite your guests to go home with a little momento of their evening.

Portraits are a great way to personalize any event. Have a 16x20 at the entrance of your event (because it is all about you) and afterwards take the portrait and hang it on your favorite wall to last forever.

No matter what type of event you're planning, birthday party, shower, wedding, always personalize. It lets your guests know that you're celebrating who you are and allowing them to be apart of it!


Happy Planning
