LAZ AND LILY: A TALE OF TWO MIRACLES
A few years ago, I heard a story from a client that would stick to me up to this day:
For some time, my client and her husband found it hard to conceive a child. So they went to the Holy Land itself, Israel, and lo and behold, a child was conceived! Thus was their firstborn, Laz, dubbed the “miracle baby”. A year later, Party Magic helped the couple, Raul and Laurice, celebrate the miracle of life during Laz’s first birthday.
This was back in 2014.
Fast forward to present, and we’re now celebrating a second miracle, one that goes by the name of Lily:
Raul, Laurice, Laz, and Lily. Happiness begins in the family!

Much has been said by me about the importance of theme in any birthday party, but while I thoroughly enjoy creating parties with unique themes, I find that I’m absolutely thrilled when I get to work with both great themes and great people.
An unexpected stage format: a circular layout with no background walling.
A welcome entrance of flowers and pink fur carpeting greets guests as they enter.
An unexpected but welcome by-product of my profession as an event stylist is that I get to meet people of all flavors. But what struck me when I met Laurice and Raul was their unabashed devotion to their children. I guess as with anything in life, you appreciate something more when you had to work hard to get it in the first place.
I love how the black and white treatment accentuates the emotion of this scene. Great job, Life by Peach Frost!
Lily’s stage was a refreshing change. Instead of the usual rectangular, 8 feet x 20 feet backdrop, we opted for no backdrop at all. Just a circular platform that supports an elegant, white gazebo, framed by circus animals, of course!
