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…

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…

TIPS FOR A GLOW/COCO BONGO PARTY

May 23, 2010

I must admit that this sweet sixteen party idea in particular has been one of my favorites!

From the inspiration to the final result. I know your guests will be overwhelmed from the minute they come into the venue and AWE moments throughout the party.

First things first, you must see where the inspiration comes from: Coco Bongo Discotheque.  The kid had been to this disco in Cancun where the mood is set in a way that you can not miss the party!  We have been there ourselves a couple of times and we knew perfectly well what he was talking about!  Every once in a while amazing shows go on stage  and throughout the club  like confetti streamers, balloons, dancing balls, bar top conga lines, movie clips projected on high tech video screens, live bands, DJs, soap bubbles… you name it!  The high energy of this club is commonly packed with party goers.  Combine this with Coco Bongo’s extraordinary musical mix, taking sounds from the 70s & 80s, Dance, Trance, Hip Hop and Rave it’s easy to see why Coco Bongo’s dance floor is always full.

Check out this video from Coco Bongo in Cancun.  Give the video a little time, it is very dark at the beginning …

It is a constant stimulation for the senses!

What we do for this type of party:

DECORATION AND LIGHTING

If your venue is  a club that already has the dancing strobe lights, fine. But having that venue for a private party can be prohibitively expensive. No worries mate! (sorry, I am still in the mood of a crocodile dundee adventure party…) We can bring the lights to you! Yes, for this party, lightning lights and decoration will set the tone for this party and will turn any common venue or even your house from ordinary into extraordinary!

On the middle right hand side you can see our airtube decoration on broad daylight. For this party we use a variety of colors, they can be used outdoor, indoor. You can even transform the front of your house or the whole backyard for this night!

Now, the lighting effects. We combine and work with the DJ so that the song and lighting are totally in sync.  These with additional video and slide shows played on huge screen(s) will sure WOW your guests! If you have been to the Blueman Group Concert or to Cirque Du Soleil, you know what I’m talking about!

Check out this video, lights go with the song!

Now, for the center pieces, good news, very good actually, no expensive flowers necessary for this one, although we have worked some beautiful centerpieces for sweet sixteen using similar themes, I suggest going for battery lamps and glow in the dark centerpieces.

ENTERTAINMENT

Now, here is where we can get really creative, inviting innovative party guests and a variety of things that will happen at different moments during the party. Living statues, stilt walkers, golden people walking around, dancers, glow in the dark necklaces and teeth,  lookalikes, balloons, bubbles, mini carnivals, line-dances, foam and bubbles, did I tell you that at this party everyone wants to be at the dance floor? Video-sound-smell-taste, WOW moments that are amazing but most of all unexpected.  One of this AWE moments will be your entrance!  It doesn’t have to be at the beginning like most common dances, it can totally have a twist to it!

Talent Show Party

May 13, 2010

This awesome and talented kid performed “Paparazzi” by Lady Gaga at Edmond’s Sixth Grade Festival.

Talent show parties are becoming very popular, not only at schools but as private birthday party celebrations. You can have an all the way type of thing where you can even hire look alike performers to hang out with your friends or have special appearances or keep it simple.

If you gave us to choose where to spend the most at this type of party, I would have to say decoration and the stage.  Also a character host/DJ who acts as a presenter like in the Oscar’s or Academy Awards!   Remember the focal point is the stage where you can set up the DJ and/or karaoke machine. We have developed a pop-up type of stage that we rent or have a more elaborate one that can light up and change colors. Our decoration also includes a mood set up high-quality banner of the Hollywood sign in California. It is an awesome setup that can include red carpet picture opportunity. Your friends will sure feel like the stars of the night.

The DJ creates fun games for the kids to follow. It is funny how kids get shy around other friends but will follow fun directions from a stranger. The truth is that a professional DJ for kids knows how to make everyone participate and get the energy going so they all  have a great time. Ours even has everyone warm up their voices, form group and have intermission games where everyone wants to jump in and participate.  Combine Karaoke with dance shows, this way you have a better opportunity for participation.  Have solos but also duets and group singing and dancing. You can even plan this ahead of time creatively so your friends form in groups for the party.

These talent show, karaoke or fun parties can be theme related with Western or Hannah Montana, Camp Rock, the Grammies, America’s got talent, American Idol, and so on.

Have someone impartial be the judges at your party and have the DJ make a fun introduction. At the end of the party you can award them categories and give them small Oscar statues or prizes. Everybody should be a winner. Some categories: Best acting performance, best dressed, best singer, etc.

To save on the cost of  food, keep it simple with dips,  chip, pop-corn, pizza and hot dogs like in the movies and have everyone stadium style seated surrounding the stage. If you want to go high-end on food, go with mouth bites and hors d’oeuvres, again your choice of mini-pizzas or shrimp and caviar!

This party screams fun! If you choose this party, call for a free consultation. We can work with you for your partial needs or create the whole party. This event will be something you and your friends will enjoy and talk about for years!
