{My Parties} Margarita Memorial PARTY!

Hey all!  Ok, so before I start, let me tell you that I JUST stopped tearing up...I was SO into setting up for the party, I completely forgot to take half the, completely forgetting the margarita welcome table (*tear*).  But, instead of having a pity party, I'll at least show you the ones I DID take...wah, lesson learned :(

One of the major decor started with these...can you guess for what??
No, they weren't for drinks, they were for the topiaries on the "welcome table"...this idea was from the fabulous Hostess with the Mostess...
The tables were decorated with fresh limes and margarita pics (if I had the pictures of the margarita cupcakes, you'd see the pics on them too...again, wah...)
Besides the margarita welcome table, we had a separate bar table...check out the "tequila" sign!  I also had "eat. drink. repeat" signs up, not all of them turned out great, but here are a few...

So, I'm embarrassed to admit that's all I have, but I guess that just means we'll have to have a do-over.  I could get used to Margarita BBQs =)  But, although I was sad to not have pics to show all my work and detail, I reminded myself that we were surrounded by friends, family, and everyone we love.  THAT made it worth it.  Hope everyone had a great holiday!

{Vendors} LOVING me some Click.

I am literally gitty with excitement to write this post.  Not only because this vendor is amazing, they are friends.  They are also the talented photographers that captured the happiest day of my life...
Click. Photography is the "baby", if you will, of Jackie and Matt, two of the most talented photographers I have seen...

{From Me to You} So...what is CHEERS?!

Is it okay to admit that only 3 days in I'm LOVING blog world?!  I mean it...reading them, following them, and now writing my own?!  Not only that, but creating one about something I absolutely love?!  Whew, that's a lot of loving going on =)

So, as I was contemplating my blog for today, I figured I'd better back track a little know that Cheers. is my new venture, but what exactly is it?  And why am I doing it?

Cheers. is my new party design and planning business.  I love to entertain, and have grown to love helping other people do the same!  I am a FIRM believer in the details...every little one.  No matter what my client's are celebrating, I love helping them come up with a theme or party design, choosing and executing the decor, designing clever favors, serving up a custom dessert bar...whatever you can imagine, we can do!

Whether it's a child's birthday party, an engagement party, or just a dinner party, go for the WOW factor...make it one for the books.  And make me the first on your guest list to help you with details A-Z =)

{Real Parties} Broadway Themed Bridal Shower

I have to tell you that this particular bridal shower was for my FAVORITE client...well, client isn't even fair because she's my fabulous sister-in-law!  She is a huge theater buff, not only starring in her high school plays, but frequenting the theaters of NYC as well!

And it's official...I'm BLOGGING!

Hey there bloggers and bloggettes (and fyi, I totally just cracked myself up with my new term)!  Anyway, after putting together the foundation of my new party design and planning venture, I've researched and "lurked" many a blog...and thought, ya know, it's MY turn! 

So, there's not much here for my first entry other than a quick hello and a request that you join me in this awesome new thing I'm pursuing!  Drop me notes, suggest ideas, and let me know what you think about the "stuff" I throw up here!  Can't wait to chat with you!
