PARTY MAGIC NEW ZEALAND?
A few weeks ago, my best friend in the world, Nikki (who also happens to be my sister), uttered vows that changed her life forever. Yes, she got married! If any of you were wondering why I haven’t been blogging lately, this was the reason: apparently part of the maid of honor’s duties involved styling the reception!
Never one to back down from a challenge, the Party Magic team (or in this case, just me and my husband, with help from my wonderful two older brothers) took on styling Nikki’s wedding.
What do you think? Is it time to set up shop abroad?
One of the sad things that came out of Nikki’s emigration to New Zealand was that it spelled the end for Simply Paris Philippines. In a sense, Simply Paris was my baby too as I was there with Nikki from the very start. However, for every door that closes, another one opens, and this time, the door that opened seems to be a lot bigger! Nikki has now started her own Auckland-based baking shop, Sugarpuff Pastry.
Congratulations to Nikki and my new brother-in-law Kenny!
HUNTER’S LUMBERJACK PARTY
Today I am excited to talk about a party that I’ve been planning to showcase for some time now. Welcome to Hunter’s Preppy Lumberjack Party!
Having a kid named Hunter definitely narrows down the choice of themes for a party. But I decided that the “preppy” element was very much suited as a 2nd “layer” to the overall theme. And the reason for this was simple. You see, I’ve known and have been friends with my client, mommy Kim, for quite some time, and I’m telling you, she is the epitome of style and proper:
Mommy Kim, Daddy Bon, and Hunter, the King of the Jungle
See what I mean? These three make a picture perfect family!
By the way, this was our setup for the photo-op area. As a principle, photo op areas should be a.) near / semi-near the entrance to the venue, such that it should be one of the first scenes that guests see, and b.) should create a strong impact to establish the general mood:
Before the photo-op, we see the entrance set-up:
