PARTY DETAILS as told by Laila

Helping mom Joanna plan and style her daughter’s birthday was a dream come true. Her daughter, Allanna requested a Sofia the First part, so the planning process began with the selection of the color palette and design of the logo and invitations. Being that Joanna and Vince own their own catering company and that Vince is an executive chef, they took over the planning and execution of the food.

I gathered my vendors and with Joanna’s input picked all of the finishing touches. Florist Rick from Avant Gardens created the over the top arrangements that graced all the tables. We added details like vintage china & butterflies to the bar to make it Allanna’s fairytale. The highlight of the day was when Allanna walked out and saw her party, She was so amazed and bewildered and did not even believe her eyes. She thanked her parents and proceeded to enjoy the party.

Happy birthday Allanna. I cannot wait to plan your next celebration!
