Choo Choooooo!

September 20, 2010

Choo Chooo!  Yes, I think I can,  Yes, I can… Remember the train from Dumbo who was trying to climb  up a hill and kept telling himself,  I think I can, I think I can?

With a bunch of parties to work on and a couple of bridals in the way… We feel like the Choo Choo right now!

Thomas the train, The Little Train that Could, and many others are  favorites  for boys ages 1 and up!

This centerpieces are for Alex and his third birthday.

I love the idea that they are all different!  Some are for favors and some will have helium balloons. Which one is your favorite?

Thankyou Silvia for such beautiful artwork!

Roxanne, the Casting/Producer and Anna Marie c’est Top Model

September 3, 2010

“Bonjour, mon nom est Roxanne. Et c’est mon ami, le haut modèlent Anna Marie…”

Outside the Maison,  hung a sign saying: Little girl, Big Attitude.

Are we at the right place? Might this be the right Diva party?

We rang the door-bell.

With my english/french accent:

“Hallo , we have been invited to C’est party and we were told there vas lots of talent here…Is Isabella home?”

“Yes, she is”,  answered her mom and called out:   “Isabella, you have visitors…. a Casting Director from France and she comes with a Model…”

Isabella appears at the front door with a bunch of her beautiful talented friends and a happy, wonderful and fun party begins…

The producer needs to find out if there really is talent at that Glamorous party like she was told. Anna Marie helps the girls and tells them how to walk and pose for the cameras!

Here, beautiful Sofia takes a turn practicing before dress-up session!  Some of the moms, also lined up for the make-up session!  I love interactive,  ready to play and participating moms. This is great for the kids too,  because they have a fun and quality time with their mothers. A girl never forgets that day when mom allowed herself to be a child again!

Isabella and her pretty and talented guests, listening to Madame Roxanne’s instructions before the Fashion Runway show!

Our models, wanted to do well with the casting/director. Some of them even went back and forth, asking their mothers how you pronounced a few words in french. One of them came up to me with a very serious tone in her voice and says:

“Madame Roxanne, at the fashion show,  I will do my best and put to practice everything I have learned today, but if you don’t like it… “C’est la vie”. That is “that is life” in french”,  she clarified.  Of course,  she, and all of Isabella’s friends did wonderful at the show, and earned their kits to prepare for Hollywood and Cannes!

Anna Marie and I had a wonderful time at this party. I want to thank Isabella’s mom for allowing us to share this beautiful pictures with you. These pictures, and the ones from the decoration, (check out the article in this blog:  Fab-Diva Party at this link: https://hippojoy.wordpress.com/2010/08/31/fab-diva-party/), were took by professional photographer, Gabriela OCampo, Phone 407-595-1806

A few people can honestly say they love their job! I am so fortunate to say I am one of them. I really enjoy playing. Role playing, acting and having fun with your children.  A time to play,  is always,  a time to learn!

Listos para Navidad?

September 3, 2010

Se que muchos de ustedes ya estarán pensando en que desean cambiar el look navideño. A lo mejor quieren hacer algo diferente….

Tengo el placer de conocer a un diseñador muy creativo a quien puedo recomendar sin temor a equivocarme. Se llama Roberto Silva y tiene 7 años de experiencia en la decoración de eventos y fiestas.

Conocí a Roberto cuando trabajaba en Grupo Imprecen, El Salvador. Cuando juntos dabamos vida a los articulos y modas de la Revista EVA,  la primera revista femenina en El Salvador impresa en Couché. En los ratos libres y cuando había oportunidad, Roberto nos enseñaba a hacer arreglos florales. Jamás se me olvidará cuando nos enseñó a hacer un topiario navideño. Fue mi regalo de navidad para mi suegra y mamá ese año y fue un total hit.

Pueden localizar a Roberto en El Salvador para hacer sus decoraciones navideñas en:

Reparto  Miralvalle ,Av Rotterdam N 80

Tels: 77748629  77370664   25128932

Pero como para muestra un botón, como decimos los salvadoreños, disfruten de esta variedad de árboles de navidad. Les sugiero hagan sus reservaciones con tiempo, porque no toma muchas casas a la vez!


Roberto chequea los materiales que tu ya tienes y discute los colores con que deseas trabajar…

Este de muñecos de nieve me encanta, ideal para una casa por donde hay chiquitos! Dan ganas de comerselo verdad?

Este en tonos blanco y verde me encanta.

Como decorador profesional, también pueden contactarlo para fiestas, Bodas, Primeras Comuniones, etc.

Man vrs. Wild Birthday Adventure!

September 2, 2010

Rodrigo is turning 10, he is very specific about what he wants!  His favorite show is Man vrs Wild and he watches it with his dad.

He is passionate about the outdoors, he likes to go camping,  fishing and enjoys aquatic sports and basketball and soccer.

In the show, Man vrs Wild, Bear Grylls,  teaches how to survive in the worst of situations and goes to the most exotic places.

Edward Michael Grylls, nicknamed “Bear”, (born 7 June 1974) is a British adventurer, writer and tv presenter. He is best known for his television series Man vs. Wild in the United States, although this show was originally called Born Survivor in Britain. He is the youngest Briton to climb Mount Everest, doing so at age 23. In July 2009, Grylls was appointed the youngest ever Chief Scout at the age of 35. (Information from Wikipedia)

Now, back to our Child-Wild and his party… Here he is, kayaking at the Florida Keys with his lil sister.

OK so an adventure and fun Man vrs Wild Party it is!! First, the invitation….Man vrs Wild with Rodrigo .

The kids began to arrive at a local park with a lake on the background and plenty of space to run around and for our wild relay/adventure!

Instructions for safety came first at this party!

In teams and getting ready for a sack race!

Like Bear Grylls, our group of adventurers had to go under caves, pass crawling down bridges, sac race, throw knock down animals (cardboard figurines) , go down a zip line and eat animal, eyes, ants and even baboo poop to survive the challenge! They got divided in teams so they cheered for their team to go faster!

The cake of course was a delicious snake by Lineth. The detail in the cake was amazing, even the flies were edible. Rodrigo was specific in what he wanted: ” A  Snake with a bloody knife,  because Bear kills his own food to survive! ”  (Blood and all, I still think the snake is so adorable!)

I will have to say that the hit of this party was the zip line at the end of our relay…
