Edie Turns 5 with Tea & Belle

It has been a while Beijos Blog readers, and it’s feeling so good to write on here and share my daughters 5th birthday party with you all!  You can also find it here on 100 Layercakelet featured yesterday. 

As you know turning 5 is kind of a big deal, and even though I like to celebrate every year, this one had to be a memorable one. Adding to the pressure, Edie was insistent on a tea party!  She was also super excited to see the upcoming live action Belle movie that came out around her birthday, so she decided she wanted a tea party with Belle. Yeah, no big deal…make it happen mom!  Long gone are the days where mommy gets to choose the theme.  So  I had to put my Beijos hat on for this one and make it the way mommy wanted it, but also make her the happiest little girl in the world on her 5th birthday.  And it was pretty cool to see!! 

All photos by the lovely Heather Kincaid, at the cutest mama kiddo concept restaurant Au Fudge in Los Angeles.

Let’s start with the invites…

Meghann Miniello did an awesome job.  In fact, she knocked it out of the park with the doilies and the transparent yellow envelopes.  Man I’m a sucker for a good invite!!  Knowing Belle’s colors are red and yellow, I wanted to spin it up a little and make it a variety of pinks and yellow instead, haha.  I like the flow of those colors way better.  Plus they mix better with the metallics I was planning on integrating.  Then I found this magenta velvet ribbon and it added the perfect royal finishing touch! 

We had the party in the creative space at Au Fudge, which is a really pretty room! It connects to pretty cute tree house the kiddos were in most of the time, which allowed the mama’s to mingle and the kiddos to do their thing… get wild. I mean, I love this place, can one be open in every county??

Can we talk about this balloon install from Wild Child Party next please??  I called Jolie, because she’s been showing off her talents with balloon design and I asked her if we could do Edie’s name.  Let’s just say she’s pretty much amazing!

Jolie’s shop also provided the pretty pink table top. 

Loved tying in the magenta ribbon again here on the table.

Every little one had a personalized little tea cup at their place setting, hand written by Meghann Minniello

 

I wanted all the girls to have a little bouquet to take home and the boys an boutonniere of course!

Can we talk about these flowers?? Rekindle Creative is a pretty talented group!  I told them my vision and they got it plus added their own creative spin which I love!  All the shades of pink….heart eyes!!

The Cake was pretty and yummy might I add thanks to the pastry chef at Au Fudge

Cake topper by our girl Nic Roc Designs

More magenta ribbon on our little favors also integrating Belle’s hospitality “Be Our Guest”

This is my favorite picture of the birthday girl!!

The whole fam bam here to celebrate Edie!!

 

Little miss center of attention, and I think she liked it!

Now let’s get to tea time!

Cousin besties…

This avocado toast…let’s just say I dream about it!

These bouquets were killer… 

Then we surprised her with…Guess Who??!!??

The excitement on her face was magic!

She sang, did story time and painted their faces.  Belle was pretty much a must have at a princess tea party right??

BPIC (beijos partner in crime) and our Beijos family.

These girls are my heart…

All the little beauties doing their princess pose!! Yes, even Court and Levi!!

 It makes me so happy to see these little girls love each other like this.  Their mama’s have been friends for a lifetime!

Time to blow out the candles and call it another year Edie boo.

 Happiest 5th Birthday little love, I still can’t believe you are 5!!  Mama loves you will all of her being.

Xx Leah

Special Thanks to all of those who made Edie’s 5th Birthday nothing short of perfection!

Palm Springs 40th Birthday Party

When one of your favorite “friendors” asks you to help style and design her 40th birthday party in Palm Springs, you say YES!  Carlie Statsky is one of the most talented photographers we’ve been lucky enough to work with.  She was actually one of the very first photographers we collaborated with for a styled shoot when Beijos was in the beginning stages.  We’ve always loved how sweet and kind she is and have admired her beauty and generosity.

She reached out to us last year saying that she was ready to start planning her big 4-0 and had her heart set on Palm Springs… We knew it was a match made in heaven right then and there.  She gave us a little inspiration of what she wanted and we created a mood board that we all fell in love with… Add a few of our favorite vendors to the mix and this party has become one of our favorites.  Plus, it was at the Junipero, one of the most amazing spots in the desert.  Keep scrolling to see Carlie’s White Hot Party and how she celebrated her 40x around the Sun….

This party was also featured on Green Wedding Shoes yesterday, head on over to see more… 

All of the gorgeous photos are by Jenn Rodriguez, we love what she did!!!

And can you believe this babe is 40?!?!

Let’s start with the pretty invite by Meghann Miniello, who you know we love, but is also one of Carlie’s personal friends!  We worked off of a blue ombre theme inspired by the vibe of the Junipero which you’ll see below…  We love everything Meghann did, just look at those amazing blue palm frond cocktail stirrers!!  And just wait till you see the place settings…  Miss Meghann was not only involved behind the scenes but she got to be in on the fun as a guest!!  You’ll see her in a few photos below, she’s the gorgeous prego!!

There is our gorgeous table!!  I’m so proud of this one!  When in Palm Springs you must go modern and that’s just what we did, with a slightly tropical touch!  Like I said, I was inspired by the venue, the Junipero and a photo of a blue smoke bomb I saw on Pinterest.  It all canon balled from there and resulted in this beauty!  I reached out to my girls the Bloom Babes who never disappoint and really nailed it with a simplistic take on the tropical trend.  I love the way they incorporated palms, white florals and succulents.

Meghann handmade each and every place setting so the slight ombre effect was seen down the entire table.  We took that to the gorgeous glassware from Hostess Haven as well.  And how perfect are those dip dyed napkins from their amazing collection?!  They completed the place setting!

How cute are those little dip dyed tassels that Carlie’s other talented friend Julie Howard, owner of Shop Leo Kids, created.  When you have that many talented friends you better hit them up for a party like this!!!

Just so you can see what I’m talking about when I say that this place inspired me…  It not only inspired me to design this party but it also inspired me to take a vacation!!  Now I just have to find a free weekend…

We loved this little lounge area the Junipero has that overlooks the pool, so the Bloom Babes jazzed it up a bit!  How fun to sit around the fire pit enjoying your friends with a cocktail in hand…. Carlie, we are definitely copying your whole party FYI!!!

The One Hope wine & champagne was flowing, Stephen Lee created the most amazing Asian infused dishes and Beverly’s Bakery nailed it with the most gorgeous cake!!  The birthday girl looks as happy as can be, which is exactly what we wanted!

Here’s our gorgeous birthday girl with her hunk hubby Gabe and all of her close friends… We love that smile and that girl, she’s truly one in a million!!!  Here’s a little bit more from her….

“All I wanted for my birthday was to be warm with a bunch of my nearest and dearest, so Palm Springs seemed like the perfect place to go. After researching airbnbs in the area I fell in love with The Junipero, (from the Desert Collective) especially since we could rent out all of the rooms and have the whole place, (and pool) to ourselves, (all 13 of us!) We used the style, vibe and colors at the Junipero as the inspiration for the party, incorporating lots of whites, blues, greens and some bright yellow too. Jacquelyn and Leah from Beijos Events did the most amazing job designing and planning the whole event, and went above and beyond in creating the look and feel that I was dreaming of. I feel so lucky to have some ridiculously talented friends like them, as well as a bunch of others who not only contributed their creations to the event, but were also there to celebrate with me too. Meghann Miniello, (the beauty sporting the cutest baby bump) totally outdid herself making the watercolor invitations and menus, the acrylic signage and place cards, the gift prints that say ‘I love you more than Palm Springs’ (on one of my palm photos) and the cutest custom laser cut palm swizzle sticks, and Julie from Shop Leo made the rad dip dyed tassels at each place setting. The Bloom Babes brought the modern boho vibe to life by adding greenery and texture to every space, and I love how they even wove palms into the outdoor furniture. :)”

“We arrived that afternoon to see everything all set up beautifully, then got dressed up in shades of white and started the celebrations by popping the champagne and taking photos around the property with Jen, (that lady is truly as talented as she is sweet and she gave me the best birthday present a girl could ask for with all of these amazing tangible memories to keep) before heading out to the desert for sunset with some white smoke bombs that the boys had fun with. One of the highlights of the day was when we were chasing the setting sun and arrived at this spot in the desert covered in white windmills just as the light was glowing from behind the mountains and we just started walking towards that dreamy light! After sunset we headed home for dinner. Jaime from The Junipero recommended that I reach out to Stephen Lee for catering and he came up with the perfect asian-inspired menu for a warm Palm Springs night. We topped the night off with a delicious lemon cake from Beverly’s Bakery for desert, and then jumped in the pool and stayed in there for hours. It really could not have been a more perfect way to start my new decade of life. A huge and heartfelt thanks to everyone involved – you managed to make turning 40 a positive thing and a whole lot of fun!”

Carlie’s beautiful dress is by Spell and her hair and makeup was by Kelly Jones Makeup & Hair

As Carlie said, this group took full advantage of their time and headed out for a sunset photo shoot at the windmills in Palm Desert… These shots are so amazing and such a great way to ring in your 40th year!!!  Well played Mrs. Statsky!

BABES!!!

Love this lady so much!!!

Doesn’t get much better than that!!!  Happy Birthday Carlie!!!

She’s a Gem – 1st Birthday Party

Us Beijos ladies have become quite accustom to planning and designing 1st birthday parties and quite frankly, we love it!  First of all, our clients have the absolute cutest babies and secondly, we love celebrating something so fun and memorable with them.  Plus, each party is so unique and different with their themes that we get to play and really get creative which is extra fun!  This one was easy because Aveline’s mama Misherr was so sweet and gave us a new theme we had never tackled before – a she’s a gem 1st birthday party that we know you will love!  This party is also featured on 100LayerCakelet today and you just can’t miss it!  Keep scrolling here to see all of the gorgeous photos from Heather Kincaid and all of the fun details that made this party shine!

unspecified-11 Let’s start with the invite, shall we?!  Aveline’s daddy does graphic design and we had no problem putting him straight to work, haha!  Let’s just say it’s a plus to have a dad who is talented and can create anything our little hearts desire!  How cute is this invite?!  And how amazing are these cocktail stirrers and cupcake toppers created by The Roc Shop?!  More on these later…

unspecified-3 We styled the tables with Cheeky for Target by Design Love Fest’s collection of paper plates, napkins, flatware and cups. This collection is so amazing and we have used it before and we can’t recommend it enough!  Not only is it cute but it’s also cost effective and practical, I mean who wants to do THAT many dishes after throwing a party?!  Totally exhausting , right?!  They dress up a table immediately and their design is easy to use with multiple themes…  And how absolutely amazing are the florals by MV Florals?!  That garland with touches of jewel toned flowers is so gorgeous, we can’t get enough!

unspecified-23 unspecified-6 unspecified-19 unspecified-4 For chairs we used ghost chairs from Stephanie’s Linens and were so happy with the decision on these!  They added a fun and modern feel to the party that flowed perfectly with the aesthetic.

unspecified-9 unspecified-2 Wanna see more pretty flowers from MV Florals?!  Ya, us too…

unspecified-24 Another fun detail?!  Custom confetti to add a personalized little touch around the party with the birthday girl’s name by The Confetti Bar!

unspecified-7 Our girl Blot & Dot did all of the beautiful signage… We love everything she does!  Gotta have a photo sign like this one behind Aveline’s high chair, love this one that she created for us!

unspecified-5 unspecified-17 unspecified-3 Here’s a little bit from our lovely client and mama Misherr…

We went with gem theme as Aveline’s middle name is Jemma and that sparked some wordplay inspiration for her 1st birthday party. We opted to throw in some brighter colors on top of jewel tones as we are in Los Angeles and September here does not resonate Fall yet and actually still feels like Summer! Jacquelyn from Beijos Events came up with the most amazing details for the theme that made the party feel really special and personal. We are lovers of details!

Every party needs a lounge space for people to kick back and enjoy themselves, and 1st birthdays are no exception!  They are also utilized as a space for parents to relax with their little ones, hold them or even let them play on a soft space like a rug.  Lucky us the venue the party was held at, The Forge in Los Angeles, has an indoor and outdoor space.  Southern California weather stays warm well into the Fall so we thought the lounge would fit perfectly outside so families could enjoy some sunshine.  Circa Rentals had the perfect pieces to really make this lounge pop and blend well with our overall decor with some pinks and pops of metallic!  But first, how cute are our clients and baby Aveline?!

unspecified-25 unspecified-27 unspecified-3 unspecified-4 The entire time we were dying over this little cutie!!  I mean her outfit and that face?!  Such a gorgeous babe!

unspecified And don’t forget fun little toys for all of the babies and kiddos to play with!  We love these neutral wood toys that any baby would love and they go with every party!

unspecified-2 unspecified-1 Now… One of the best parts everyone… THE DESSERTS!!!  I’ll let Misherr tell you a little bit more…

We asked our friend Sarah from SarieCakes to create these pretty watercolor cakes and super cute gem shape cookies. Aveline loves to eat and she sure did not disappoint as she ate half of her smash cake in under a minute!

Check out all of the AMAZING desserts and the fun details that really made this party stand out, and there are those cute cupcake toppers from The Roc Shop

unspecified-6 unspecified-16 unspecified-1 unspecified unspecified-15 unspecified-13 unspecified-5 How cute is Aveline and her smash cake?!  This is one of our favorite parts of every 1st Birthday!!  Gotta have some extra details like the florals by MV Florals on the high chair to dress it up a bit too!

unspecified-11 unspecified-10 Hope you liked this one as much as us!  We’re a little biased but we think it was pretty amazing… And this family couldn’t be cuter!  Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day!

Viva la Vivi – 1st Birthday Party

We’re so thrilled to share this gorgeous 1st birthday party we were so lucky to be a part of!!  When Sara Brenner, the owner of Lulu & Georgia, asked us to help style and design her daughter Vivian’s birthday party we were over the moon excited!  We are huge fans of Lulu & Georgia and all of their gorgeous inventory, so needless to say, this was a match made in heaven!  Sara had a few brilliant ideas for what theme she wanted to do and we ended up with this beautiful Italian “Viva la Vivi” theme and we are so happy with how it turned out!  It’s also featured today on My Domaine and Style Me Pretty Living… Scroll down for all of the photos by Ala Cortez and our Q&A with My Domaine!

alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1008 How would you describe the theme of the event?  Which colors/patterns did you choose to convey the theme?

Sara had a gorgeous vision for her Vivian Mae’s 1st birthday party of the Italian countryside/riviera that we absolutely loved and just went with!  The colors we used were pretty hues of blue, white and yellow from images of the ocean and beach with the amazing yellow and white umbrellas strewn along the sand.  We used greenery that reminded us of walking through a Tuscan villa with some blush blooms, just to add that girly touch for a lovely lady’s first birthday!  We really loved that it wasn’t your typical 1st birthday party, much more chic!  What tied it all together was the prettiest blue and white floral print that we used throughout the party on the invite and with pretty placemats at each guest’s place setting.

alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1077 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1002 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1013 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1017 Planning a party that both adults and children will love is a challenge. What elements should readers consider to make sure it appeals to both age groups?

As a mother myself I totally understand this problem…  You want to make sure the kids have a fun time but also make sure the adults are taken care of and comfortable themselves!  It’s not easy bringing a toddler to a party, it can actually be pretty stressful!  Luckily Sara herself is extremely thoughtful and thought of every detail for her guests, down to making sure the bathrooms had every essential a parent would need to for a quick diaper change!  To please both the little and big guests we ensured there was plenty of shade with pretty umbrellas (the party was held in August, so it was hot!), lots of lounge space to relax comfortably and rugs so our littlest guests could move about easily!  There was also entertainment with the Beat Buds that both the babes and their parents could enjoy, along with fun music playing throughout the event.  Another important aspect to us is the food and drinks, Room Forty put together a perfect menu that was both kid and adult friendly and of course, cocktails are necessary for us adults at these parties!

There’s the cute little birthday girl herself!!

And here’s some of that yummy food we were talking about from Room Forty! alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1122 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1169 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1168 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1167 Can you tell me a bit about the flowers and greenery used, and how they contributed to the overall theme?

With the Italian countryside inspiration I really wanted to have as much pretty greenery as possible, but to tie in Vivian being a pretty little girl we had to have some florals so we went with blushes and whites!  Flowers are so important to events, I always find that once I have the florals in place it just all comes together and looks gorgeous no matter what.  We had pretty greenery and blooms around all of the main wooden signs to dress them up and each centerpiece was full of pretty florals that complimented the party.  Florals can be a pricey part of a party, but like I said they definitely are a wow factor that ties the entire party together!

alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1014 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1026 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1120 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1084 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1054 What are some simple ways readers can personalize party decor?

I find that with any party it’s all about the little details and that is what can really impress your guests…  For Vivian’s party we used the pretty paper placemats that aren’t expensive and make an impact.  Another way we love to add a nice touch is by personalizing things…  This can be with cocktail napkins, cocktail stirrers, cake toppers or even signage!  We usually turn to The Rock Shop for her amazing designs, but you could easily find companies online that will make these for you through easy or just by googling it!  And every 1st birthday party needs touches like a “1st birthday stats sign” with all the details about the guest of honor and photos of that little person through-out their first year.

alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1030 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1117 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1082 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1178 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1152 How would you describe the table setting?  What are the key elements readers should consider to replicate this look?

The table setting was classic with pretty touches.  We used simple china, flatware and glasses that any of your readers most likely have at home but added pretty details like yellow napkins tied in a knot, that can easily be replicated.  The paper placemats were designed by Sara’s graphic designer, if you have a friend that is handy with something like that you could always ask them or hire someone and print at your local Kinkos.  And of course adding amazing florals doesn’t hurt either!

alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1019 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1004 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1034 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1020 Tell me a bit about the food and sweets served!  Were they all child and adult-friendly, or did you cater with each age group in mind?

Sara definitely wanted each guest to be happy with the menu selection, she thought of both the adults and kiddos while also keeping our Italian theme in mind too…  With any child’s party you have to have something they will love to eat, so buttered noodles and pizza were a must!  Haha!  Luckily pizza is an overall party pleaser so it was definiltey the way to go.  Add a couple light salads for the adults as well and you have the perfect Summer party set up.  For desserts we continued keeping the Italian theme in mind and included an assortment of Italian biscotti, cookies, and cannolis – and no birthday would be complete without a cake!  For Vivian we had a simple two tiered white cake, added some gorgeous blooms and of course a personalized cake topper!

alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1206 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1045 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1051 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1043 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1049 alacortez-lifestyle-vivalavivi-1058 How important was it to create social seating areas throughout the party?  What are the key accents readers should introduce to do this?

This party had the ultimate lounge selection for guests to enjoy, thanks to our amazing Lulu & Georgia connection ;)  I personally think that a lounge area is really key to a kid’s party, parents need a place to relax and play with their children that is comfortable and easily accessible.  Soft pillows and cushions are important to have for little ones to be able to sit and play, but you also want to steer clear of sharp edges if possible so they don’t bump their heads.  Rugs are also a key aspect, at this age kids are all over the place crawling and walking with the occasional spill so you want something soft for them to land on!  Plus it’s easier for parents to get down on the floor to play as well.  Having these areas makes the party flow easily and lets your guests mingle while also having fun with their little ones!

Beijinhos Birthday – Dylan’s Ballerina Birthday

Its seems just like yesterday, I was planning Dylan’s 4th birthday, and now this little lady is 6! Where does the time go? I swore each year goes by faster then the last. This year, this little lady wanted to get her tutu on and spend it twirling with her close gal pals. Near our house is the cutest little ballerina studio called The Tutu School located in Willow Glen. This is a little girl’s dream! Purple and pink walls, tutus galore, and plenty of room to twirl their little hearts out. Dylan had two requests for this party…. jewelry and lots of treats for all of her besties. She is the sweetest little girl who wanted to make sure that everyone was treated like it was their birthday, and we did just that! So excited to show you all the fun details with you today. Don’t miss it on 100 Layer Cake-let as well.

 Photos by Yasmin Sarai

Let’s begin with the invitation. I wanted the colors to flow with the venue so I kept with an ombre color palette of pastel pinks, purples, and denim blue. The style was of course a little boho.

yasminsarai_beijosevents_dylans6thbday-74

Gal pal Megann Miniello created this pretty watercolor beauty. So cute right!?

Every ballerina needs her own tutu romper. I found this pink number at Sweet Threads, and immediately knew this was perfect for her special day. Don’t forget the gold ballerina slippers.

Twirling and dancing can get exhausting so a little lounge area for the ballerinas to hang in was much appreciated. I used Gunn & Swain blankets and paired them with my favorite Boho Pillows. Adding in a belly basket fill of protea flowers and pastel snap dragons to complete the cozy feel. Adding florals and greenery will go so far in the design area, its brings it all to life. Plus it makes the area so pretty! A wooden sign saying “just dance” by Megann Miniello also made itself at home in the lounge area.

One of the birthday girl’s requests is that she could give her friends treats galore. And it had to be picnic style. I took that request and ran with it. Still keeping with the color palette theme of pinks, purples, and denim blues. Flower guru, Natasha Kolenko created this amazing pastel arrangement that was absolutely stunning. That girl creates magic! Look at those proteas! Love! The Little Market heart shaped wooden plates were placed on top of an ombre colored placemat and accompanied by some denim blue mud cloth napkins by Boho Pillow. I found the perfect ombre cups and plates from Land of Nod that screamed ballerina party! Placemats are such a fun way to create more design into your tablescape, and its so easy to do and affordable! Simply just find or create an image of your choice and make a color copy on cardstock. Voila!

yasminsarai_beijosevents_dylans6thbday-78

Each place setting had a favor personalized with their names on it. Inside was a swan Gunner & Lux necklace to remind them of all the ballerina fun they had that day. Just the beginning of the gift giving!

After lots of dancing and crafting, these little ballerinas were itching for some treats! Keeping my word, they got some treats! A whole bookcase full of sugary ones!

Bows and bracelets for my friends!

yasminsarai_beijosevents_dylans6thbday-61 yasminsarai_beijosevents_dylans6thbday-58

The second request from the birthday girl was to spoil her besties, so lets just do that! Along with the swan necklace, they needed bracelets and hair bows to complete their look. Hudson and Isla have the cutest boho textile hairbows that were perfect for this party. No better then giving out friendship bracelets, these cuties were made by The Fair Line.
