It’s a 30 & fabulous masquerade  birthday party for my daughter Tanya and boy was it fun ! The colors were  black, gold and turquoise with lots of sparkle with some  masks we picked up at the dollar store. We bought lots of mask and put them everywhere. What made this party special were all the details. Everything matched perfectly right down to the beautiful feathered dress Tanya wore. Their was a beautiful decorated dessert table, a champagne bar with assorted fruits,  and pasta and salad for dinner. We had  karaoke so Tanya and her friends sang all night long.  A beautiful and elegant event I am sure Tanya or her friends will never forget.


Tanya’s Baby Shower Brunch

Welcome to Tanya’s baby shower Brunch. A lot of work but a lot of fun, it was all worth it because the brunch was a success ! The shower was at 10am Saturday so we had to come and set up all the decorations , tag all the drink glasses and cups and set the tables the night before. The beautiful cake was by my good friend Dora.

 How cute is this Baby Banner made by Brianna and these cute little favors. What a talented young lady !

The tables were set up outside and had simple but pretty white carnations in mason jars on top of turquoise chevron print squares, over lime green tablecloths. I rented all the tablecloths(16 to be exact for 60 women) and some chairs at “A Better Party’ in Lake Elsinore.

Brianna also made this advice tree, and boy did everyone give a lot of great advice. She had homemade earring for all the girls who took the time to fill out the cards.

The coffee bar had my collection of white coffee cups and Carol and Jackie brought the coffee and beautiful silver creamers.

I blew up Tanya’s pictures and tape them to the existing pictures.

I made a lot of chalkboard for this event for all the tables and for the three gifts we gave out for the games the girls played.

I used a large french basket with a cream linen for the croissants. The menu… French Toast with homemade raspberry syrup. croissants with butter. , sliced tomatoes with assorted cheeses and herbs. Fresh fruit salad with lavender syrup, maple Bacon. Hot coffee, herbal tea and orange juice with mineral water and cake for dessert. My mom Dee and Kim did most of the cooking, and Yolanda made the fruit salad.

Tanya got a lot of wonderful gifts from all her famliy and friends. The white basket was filled with used books the girls brought for Tanya’s baby .

Congrats to the happy couple who is expecting their bouncing baby boy in November.  I know that he will bring you all the joy and love that only a new baby boy can bring. How exciting ! I can’t wait !!

And a big thank-you for all who came to share this wonderful event !
