"Words cant express how my heart feels about Saturday. I'm still thinking about every detail and every minute of the party. It was so enchanting. I was blown away. I got inspired by my dress, told you my theme, we shared a few inspiration pictures and BOOM we have this classy, tasteful, organic creation. It was a pleasure working with you."


Yes, that is a direct quote from Heena, mother of sweet Laila. Before Heena did any sort of planning for the big day - she went shopping for a dress. She spotted the perfect majestic green dress by designer Alexis and Laila's from Gucci (which, btw, she looked UH-MAZING in) It was perfect. She instantly imagined an enchanted, woodland, fairy theme for her little girl - she came to us so that we could bring her dream to life.


We took her ideas and ran with them, we sat down and created a mood board together; then started gathering our materials and thats when the magic started happening..

THE MOOD BOARD




THE MATERIALS:

+ plastic mystical figurines

+ flowers (cherry blossoms, curly willow, garden roses, lizianthus & ranuculus) (provided by Flowers by Melinda)

+ tree stumps (all custom cut)

+ a vintage high chair

+ a repurposed dresser

+ gold spray paint

+ 20+ bags of moss


Although there were alternatives to getting the tree stumps and shortcuts we could have taken, we wanted to keep it personal.

We went and chose each stump to be professionally cut. (thanks to our friends JB Tree Experts!)


Luckily for us this party took place in March which is actually the only month that Cherry Blossom flowers bloom ALL YEAR. It was a literal dream. Thank you again, Melinda!







THE MAGIC















There were pounds of moss and golden unicorns every you looked but we still needed something more.. thats when we called FBM to come set up flower crown bar and Luxe Event Entertainment for a dance floor.
