PARTY DETAILS, as told by Ashley…

The Theme to this 2nd birthday party was Storey’s favorite things.  I’m a Mom, Wedding & Event Planner who wanted to throw an extra special birthday party for my Daughter, Storey Lee Summers.  When trying to think of a theme, I couldn’t help but to think of all the things Storey loves so rather than choosing one, I wanted to highlight them all for everyone to see!

Some the of the details included a “Storey’s favorite things” display where I had a calligrapher design all of canvases so you could see each of her top 10 favorite things.  This was displayed on a vintage piece of furniture that I rented.  The dessert display included all eatable cupcake heart toppers that read more of her favorite things and her cake had a second layer that also read even more of her favorite things.

The kids table was adorned with 36” balloons and tissue paper tassels that I handmade the week before her party (talk about pulling a few all nighters!).  Each child had a “place card” which was a hand calligraphy favor box full of a few of Storey’s favorite things!

We also had a dress up station and 2 Pony’s (one for the kids to ride and the other to decorate the pony’s hair).  There were passed appetizers which included some of her favorite comfort foods like meatballs and mac and cheese.  We also had a decorate your own slider and hot dog station as well.  The invitation was delivered in a red box to each child and filled with confetti (the invitation itself and the box). The invitation read “Cue the Confetti… Storey’s turning 2”

Love these images. I am a graphic designer and I was wondering if you know the source of the balloon table setting image? I would like to inquire about purchasing it for use on a website I am designing for a balloon company?

Where are the silver plates with hearts from?
