So… as I mentioned before, this week has been super hectic :0 Sincere apologies for the light posting – but in addition to our first participation in a big, out-of-town event on Wednesday and my "regular" job, we had a full day photo shoot for hwtm yesterday and I was seriously running on empty. Here’s a sneak peek at a few of the new party themes we worked on yesterday that are coming soon to …Hope you like! {click images to view larger}

Double Happiness… (bridal shower, engagement party, adult birthday)

double happiness: modern Asian party theme
Bedtime Story (baby shower or first birthday; no furniture moving required…these are rectangular tables {the kind your rent for parties} made to look like beds, and the cost of the duvet/pillowcase combo from IKEA is only a couple bucks more than renting a tablecloth for a day!)…

modern baby shower party theme: bedtime story
(engagment party, rehearsal dinner, milestone birthday, etc)…

contemporary dinner party Stay tuned for more details!

This is my absolute favorite blog and website. I can’t wait to see the details of these new parties!

If we host parties of our own, can we send in the pictures to share?

Yes – you can definitely send in pictures of your own parties! We’re working hard on a new “real parties” section right now that will feature lots of different party pics sent in by readers!

And thanks so much for the kudos :)

Hey Jenn!

OK, the “bed” table is FANTASTIC!!! With a change of the linens/sheets, the applications are endless….girl’s slumber party birthday, bridal (lingerie) shower (hubba hubba!), New Year’s Eve dinner party….
Absolutely GENIUS. Once again, you hit it out of the park. I am predicting everyone and their blogging brothers will be refering to and tracking back to this one! :)
Thanks for the inspiration!
