Happy New Year!
I had great fun ringing in the new year with a party for a favorite client. I have had the pleasure to plan many fantastic parties for Kate, but one of my favorites is the New Year’s Eve party she and her family throw. A family-friendly party, the New Year is celebrated at 6PM, when it is midnight in Paris. So, each year, we choose French-inspired themes. This year, we used the stories of Babar as our inspiration.
With palm trees, homemade hot air balloons and a selection of Kate’s sons’ stuffed animals, we created a simple, but fun decor scheme. Well Dunn provided a delicious French menu and the balloon artist and temporary tattoo artist provided by Bialeks kept the kids completely entertained.
We also created a craft table where the kids could make their own crown and create flags for their own kingdom.
The party was a huge success and a wonderful way for me to bring 2010 to a close and kick off 2011. I look forward to a year full of fabulous events!
