Fab-Diva Party!

August 31, 2010

“Last Friday we had a wonderful time at a Divalicious Fab Party at Isabella’s house!”

Isn’t she Gorgeous?

She is beautiful and with such a vivacious personality and so were her adorable friends.  All her BFF’s (Best Friends Forever) were at her party.

Roxanne, our Casting Director from France and Anna Marie an Italian/french model who had just got off the plane from an extravagant Fashion Runway in Paris, arrived at her house because they were told that they could find new and fresh talent at Isabella’s private Diva Gathering. Boy they were right!  That place happened to have the most talented models ever!

Today I will post some beautiful pictures sent by Isabella’s mom. Thank you for letting us share them.  Be patient, I hope I will have more time this week to post more pics of the party itself.

No Diva table would be complete without a gorgeous candelabra!

View of the Buffet table.  Our Divas were very much into fashion, glamour and decor!  They noticed every single detail and some of them even inspected the tiny crystal ware (all is matched to their exact size).  Everything was impecable, we can not risk our reputation with these glamorous divas! Everyone, looked for their name in their own place cards and drank from her tiny cups and made a toast in honor of Isabella and for such a wonderful evening.

Both chairs and tables are fit to their size for their comfort.

And what divalicious party would be complete without a Diva Cake? Check out this beautiful cake with mini diva purse. Thank you Lineth again for such a wonderful and yummy creation.

Before playing dress up and the Runway, the girls got to do some picture frames to take home.

For us to come decorate your party…

Candy Bars for all happy occassions!

July 12, 2010

There is something about a Candy Bar that makes heads turn!

Candy Bars are more and more popular at Children and adult parties alike. Here I post some of the Best Ideas I have found searching the web!

This beautiful Pink candy Bar was posted by KenzieKAte on Flickr. Check the lollypop trees, they are simple yet elegant.

It is always really nice to put a backdrop to make the candy bar just pop!  This one by Sintart, with a great variety of candy…

This is another sweet buffet… An Ice Cream Bar!  This one by DIY, has all kind of toppings including merengue.

You have them at weddings, at quinceaneras and Sweet Sixteen parties and at Baby Showers, Candy Bars are in.

You can choose among a variety of candy  and contrast the color of your shceme. Following are pics for one in pink and one in yellow for your delight!

Candy and candy bars can and have been the inspiration for some parties. The famous Dylan’s Candy Store was the whole inspiration for a Sweet, sweet quinceanera who couldn’t help sighing when she talked about this famous store in New York.

The daughter of the legendary designer, Ralph Lauren  turned her attention into making chocolates.

And so Dylan’s Candy Bar and Dylan Lauren found true love and created this beautiful candy bar that  has several branches spread through NYC, Florida, and Texas. Apart from stocking her own brand of candies, she has a whole lot of other brands as well, including, sour gummies, chocolate, and sugar free delicacies.

Using airtubes, light effects and huge sweet sculptures and five whimsical candy bars, a Sweet Quinceanera celebrated her Birthday!

By Beautiful Blooms and Ali

The touch and combination with the natural flowers gives it a nice whimsical effect.

Planning a World Cup Final Playoff Party

July 10, 2010

And its a Goooaaal!! or in Spanish, la mete y es un Goooooooooool!!!

For the past month the world has been focused on the 2010 World Cup Tournament in South Africa. It is a great opportunity for friends to gather together and watch the game. Besides the excitement of the game itself it has been fun to watch fans from all over the world supporting their favorite team and dressed up so creatively and fun!

South Africans welcomed football/soccer fans to their country to the first World Cup to be held on the continent and the sound of the vuvuzela horns has sure become a trademark of this 2010 event.  On Sunday , the final game is here and it will be played between Spain and the Netherlands.

No matter what team you will cheer for, this is a great time to have a fun with family, friends, and have a “World Cup Final Playoff Party” so here I post some ideas for you to prepare for Sunday!

Ask your friends to come dressed up ready to cheer, it is really fun to have guys from opposite teams!  Make a huge poster with rules against violence between both sides, make it funny and personalize it with the name of some of your guests.

For example,

“Ole – allowed, bull hats too,

Jose keep it up and do not boo!”

Fun Hats that cheer for Holland, for Spain you can have “torero fighter” , bull hats or fun red and yellow wigs like the ones shown above!

For decorations, print out flags of both teams and hang them around your home! Have a professional face painter  make creative and different works of art. Check out this spanish fan…

If you are planning to have this party at home, because you want it to be a family gathering, make sure you have activities for adults and children alike. It is a great opportunity to teach children  not only about the game but about where it is held also. Ask your friends to come in early and before the party starts, make some fun entertaining games for children and explain that this will be their time, and when the game begins, they can either watch or play with the games you have chosen. If the kids are aware of the rules, it is more likely  they will not interrupt.

Some activities for the children: have costumes, bandanas, whistles, vuvuzelas, hats and wigs so they can get dressed to cheer for their favorite team, (it doesn’t matter if they have already been disqualified), have different pictures of the countries participating and also explain about the traditions from South Africa, it is amazing how much they learn with play!

Lets talk Food! Finger food is perfect for this celebration. Have a variety of dips and food representing both sides. Spanish tapas and Hollandese hors d’oeuvres are a wonderful option. Hams and cheeses and mini servings of paella, chorizo (spanish sausage) and of course cold beer or wine. Put mini flags symbolizing where the food is from and do not forget to decorate the table. Take a look at this cute clog!

And for dessert, I want to share this great idea that was sent to me by my dear friend Jaime, who is already preparing for his celebration of the grand finale of the World Cup.  If you are familiarized with the soccer frenzy you have probably heard of Paul the octopus. This octopus has become a World Cup phenomenon after correctly predicting the winners of all six Germany’s matches. He predicts it by grabbing an oyster from a crystal box. He has picked an oyster from the box with the Spanish flag so he thinks they will beat the Netherlands in Sunday’s final in Johannesburg, South Africa. We shall see. But going back to the dessert… It is a ball of chocolate ice cream and the octopus is sculpted in fondant. No one will be mad at this Paul…he is toooo cute!

Lego Racer Party

June 25, 2010

Automobile racing….  Their passion

Speed…….. their creed

Dixie and Prixie  their names

Ladies and gentleman, Boys and Girls please give a warm welcome to the Racey Racers….

These two characters are Car Racers and they host a fun game show that involves Team Effort! Team Effort means that you have to work together with your friends in order to achieve a common goal! I just love the faces of our happy kids when we explain to them what Team Effort means and when asked about their goals in life…For many six year olds their goal in life is to win the Racey Racers game show that day. Good to live in the moment, the racers explain about challenges and how it is good to have goals at school and in life too!

Decoration, Backdrop and setup can be included. For this party, table cloths were solid red, blue and yellow and with a black and white checkers small cover on top.

Plates were in solid colors like the table cloths. Centerpieces were red tin pales with balloons, tissue paper and candy canes. The goodie boxes were stackable and had lego toy stickers and assorted candy.

The kids are divided into two teams:  Red Team and Blue Team. Some of the challenges involved obstacle racing, Lego Tower building, line dancing,  funky car races with our specially designed cars, “ballooney kids”,  Huge costumes that are filled by balloons, and, of course,  a Nascar Style celebration with foam and bubbles!

Roll paper mommies!  READY, STEADY, GO….GO, GO, GO!!!!

Assisting the kids at a Lego tower building activity!
