Places to go People to See
"Places to go People to See" was exactly what I thought when mom, Lauren Demarco, came to me for her daughters, Hope Marter's, graduation party.
Mom came to me with the idea of a Kate Spade Themed Party, which I thought was a great idea because I know Hope and her style and personality is so Kate Spade. I was thrilled! We love Kate Spade! I did my research, as I do for all my events and I learned so much from reading her books and looking at photos of Kate Spades life.
I them made mom and daughter a design board, which I do with most of my clients. It included colors, fabric swatches and inspiration that we would use to create the ultimate event.
We met and I presented them with a unique, one of a kind table scape design. Hope was thrilled!
The day finally came and we set up a fabulous cake table and custom made paper roses that we made just for her event. That was one thing mom was sure of, she wanted our paper roses to be used on her cake table backdrop and we were more than happy to custom make her the most beautiful flowers! It takes us about an hour and a half to make these roses individually and we loved every minute of it!
"Places to go People to See" was exactly what I wanted to showcase at her graduation party. Luggage's, passports and of course a globe! Graduating High School is only the beginning and traveling will be only one part of the many things to come in her life. It was important that we showcased that at her event.
Her Cards Table included actual vintage luggage's that we were able to find just for her event!
Paris guide book along with Places to go People to See book by Kate Spade were also on display and of course a Ready for Take Off Passport!
The Birdcages where Monique Lluhllier by Pottery Barn, which we dazzled with some pearls.
Her tables included our own line of specialty satin black linens with satin black and white runners and the cutest fuchsia satin napkins wrapped like bows.
Customized menus were also made to flow with the design and were actually made by Lauren Michelle Ickes from Baby Photo Love who also took photos of the event.
Her dessert table was more than fabulous! These custom made Cookies from O' 4 the Love of Baking were an absolute hit! Guest could not get enough...
These stunning Rice Krispy Treats by the fabulous Jamie's Cake Pops and Creative Events. I mean the detail in her work is the best I've ever seen and I've done quite a few events...
The Rice Krispy Treats matched her dessert table backdrop and I almost, literally almost fell over when I saw these.
Of Course non of our events are complete without our custom photobooths! This beautiful white wooden backdrop was made on location by the amazing Lauren Michelle Ickes. At first my original design was for a black chalkboard backdrop with my amazing white paper roses and gold wording "Hello Gorgeous", but when Lauren and I went to Lowes to look for support panels, we absolutely fell in love with the idea of using the white washed wood for the backdrop.
The Photobooth included a black and white stripped chair, a gold end table with beautiful pink peonies, blush pink ottoman and a rug of course! Little Miss Party Planner never misses a thing!
Photobooth included polaroid cameras, props, frames and mom ordered a custom album where guests could take a snap, stick it and leave their wishes for Hope.
This is event was absolutely amazing and so fun to design, curate and style. Of course all this would not be possible without all the amazing vendors and the Demarco Family.
