Today, I am literally jumping with joy. Because I get to share with you this really special party we made:
Now this is not usually me, jumping out and sharing with you this picture all of a sudden with not even an introductory paragraph, but I just couldn’t help it. It’s so cute and happy and beautiful!
If anyone noticed on our social media and this blog, we have been posting more and more pictures of parties we’ve done at this particular venue. See, for example, Ellie’s Gymtastic 7th. For those curious, this expansive space generously filled with daylight is at Santolan Town Plaza (by Rockwell). Send us an email if you’re interested!
But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s go back to the start.
Welcome to Allie’s Kate Spade Party!
Everyone is smiling here in this picture. Allie included!
A big thank you to Delightful Little Darlings for all of these wonderful images!
WHEN STARS ALIGN
Do you know the saying, you are what you wear? I think that this is mostly true.

If I can only tell you how many Kate Spade bags I have stashed in my closet…(I probably won’t be able to tell, because I lost count a long time ago).
Now if you asked me about designer shoes, I would have to say that it’s a tie between Charlotte Olympia and Sophia Webster (hint: they’re like Kate Spade, only for shoes). But I digress!
In good company: Allie with a giant cupcake, an oversized dog, lemon, spade, and a bunny in a hat.
I said “when stars align”, because this time around my client Lindsay is also a fan of Kate Spade, and agreed to do this theme for Allie. And you know what happens when I really really like a theme…As I’ve said before, you gotta love what you do or else you won’t be able to do great work.
Pretty mom and daughter
For the stage, I wanted it to be quintessential Kate Spade, thus the yellow cab, the large dog, the spade, and the checkered black and white flooring: [Read more…]
