Valentine's Day Party {Full of LOVE theme}

{FULL OF LOVE} Balloon themed Valentine's Day Party!

My daughter wanted to have a little Valentine's day and we came up with a balloon themed party and loved how it turned out! 

So here is how our little Valentine's day play date and I will give you all the details below!

It's amazing how simple like balloons can really make your decor stand out and really transform your party into something so much fun and just so sweet! 

We choose balloons because what kid doesn't like balloons and what's not to like anyways?! It's simple, sweet, and really serves the purpose! Even though I didn't do a very traditional Valentine's day theme, I did incorporate the colors and did add some heart elements here and there! Overall, it was a sweet, playful theme and it was everything my daughter wanted for her little party! 

I had Brittany from Edible Details create the sweet and cutest balloon themed fondant toppers and decided to change things up with the toppers, instead of using printable tent cards, I decided that I wanted to use fondant balloons to wrap around the apothecary jars and plates to add a touch of whimsy and to also decorate the milk bottles with a heart that wrapped around the neck. Of course we had "Balloon Pops" and those were a hit as always! Brittany always creates the cutest and the most amazing designs! This by far have been one of my favorite designs that I have had the pleasure of creating and coming up with ideas for! 

I worked with the lovely Brooke from BB Sweets and she made the cutest and sweetest cookies that were balloon themed and she even made them whimsical by adding twine to some of the balloon shaped cookies! They were just perfect and were really good as well! 

I also worked with the sweet Breeze from Madyson's Marshmallow's and did she ever create the cutest design for our chocolate covered marshmallows! They were a very big hit at the party and were really good too! 

Kristal from Atutudes, created the beautiful and sweet tutu that my daughter wore and added that balloon and gave it that sweet touch that the tutu needed! It was exactly what I had wanted and perfect!

I worked with Lindsey from Pocket Baby and created the cutest little top to match our tutu and our theme! I think the "Full of LOVE" top was just perfect for the party! She was really a joy to work with and very helpful! 

I enlisted the help of Alisha from Fairytale Jubilee to help me come up with a "balloon" themed hair accessory and boy did she ever help come up with the cutest hair accessory ever! Isn't that balloon top hat to die for?!?! I really love working with Alisha because she really comes up with one of a kind designs and looks for our parties!

I had the pleasure of working with Corie from Miss CoCo Designs and she created the cutest and prettiest little bracelets that we have out as party favors! They were supposed to mimic the balloons in our theme and color scheme as well! They are so pretty in person and do they ever sparkle! 

I also worked with the cool and super talented Natalie from The Knock-Knock Factory and she created the cutest wreath that greeted our guests as they came to our party! She really has some serious major talent and exceed all my expectations! She is awesome and will really create something unique and one of a kind for your party decor! 

I worked with the lovely and sweet Wendy from Green Beansie Ink and she designed the  sweet and adorable Balloon themed invitation and printables, and I was not able to use the printables because what do you know, my printer broke the day night before!!! Ahhhh, she created the cutest and amazing printables to match the party!! She is amazing and is so talented and will really create something to your liking and will bring your core theme to life! 

I also had the pleasure of working with Jenny from Crossing The Bugger-Dixon line with some decorating tips and party favors! Jenny is super talented and gave me so many great ideas to work with and to use! I really enjoyed picking her brain because for those of you who don't know her, she has awesome ideas and she is also SUPER crafty!! She suggested the lantern ideas that were used in the old vintage windows with ribbons, helped with backdrop ideas, and also gave me the ideas for the party favors when it came to the boys! Punch Balloons?? Bubbles?? Bitty bags with just plain ole' balloons?! I would have NEVER thought of that if it wasn't for her help! So, thank you so so much Jenny for all your sweet and creative ideas and for giving me some wonderful ideas and directions! I really loved picking your crafty brain! :)

Thank you also to my sweet and talented friend Amy Craft from Amy Craft Photography for taking amazing pictures as always! You make the parties look so pretty in pictures and give us a fun keepsake to remember!

How awesome is that?! it's a PARTY in a BOX comeplete with all the details that you would need to put the party together!

Fanciful Events { 2011} A year in Review

I can't get over how fast 2011 went by!! WOW!!! I feel like we just started this year and we are 5 days away from 2012! This was a good year and it brought along so many wonderful surprises and I was able  to work with some amazing people and vendors! So, here are the parties I did for 2011! :)

I decided to do a fun little Sweet Valentine's day party for my daughter and her little friends. It was a fun little theme to do and so tweet!

My next event was my daughter's Christening at the end of February! I wanted to do something that was sweet and had a touch of vintage and of course use a sweet little bunny throughout the theme. So it turned out to be a Sweet Vintage Pink Bunny Christening! It turned out just perfect and was exactly how I had envisioned my daughter's Christening!

I didn't do anything for awhile until August believe or not! We had a very busy summer and it just didn't allow the time or dedication to plan something fun until I decided to do a Back to School Party in August! It was simple and just a fun party to do for my daughter and her little friends!

My next event was my daughter's 1st birthday party that I had started planning and getting things since the summer! I really wanted to make her party be unique and just so sweet and special! I had so much fun planning and doing this Ribbons and Bows 1st Birthday Party! I think it turned out better than I had thought and one of my favorite parties I have done!

My daughter wanted a fun little halloween party so we did just that! A small and fun Little Bewitching Halloween party! It turned out really cute and the best part is that all the girls had a great time!

The following week, I had my daughter's Royal Princess Party to do! I had 3 major parties in the month of October! I was going crazy as you can imagine! This turned out beautiful and my daughter loved being a princess on her special day and it really was a royal affair to remember! 

Our next Party was in December and it was a Sugar Plum themed party! We decided that we would do a Nutcracker themed party every year and change it up and this is the color scheme and direction we went with, a Wintry Sugar Plum/ Nutcracker Party! This is really one of my favorite parties that I have done and I am so happy with the way it turned out and the color scheme we choose! It looked like a wintry wonderland that was purely magical and just stunning!

Finally, I will end this year with a fun design I got to do for a local Tv show here in San Antonio. I got invited to go on San Antonio Living to do a holiday dessert table. You can imagine my excitement and I decided to do a Candy Cane holiday themed table and this is how it turned out! It was such a fun experience and for creating a dessert table in 30 minutes , it didn't turn out that bad! 

We also started a project that is dear and important to me and we will make it even bigger and better for next year. We started Project Jolly,

 which is a Non-Profit Organization that will give kids gifts that are sick with cancer and are unable to be home or spend the holidays with their loved ones. As a event planner sometimes, we don't realize the things that go one and this a way to give back to those poor kids and the parents who have to go through that, and this is our way of telling them that we are thinking of them and want to try to spread some Holiday Cheer even for a little while! We will be working with some amazing vendors and people who will make Project Jolly, a project that will spread holiday cheer! :)

So, this is what kept me busy for the last part of 2011! It was a great year and I already have lots of projects in the works for 2012 and I am really excited about those already! So, here is to a New Year filled with wonderful blessings and may it be the best year yet! 
Thank you to all the amazing vendors and friends who made this year a memorable year and may next year be a year to start, create, and design new things and ideas!

Cheers and Happy New Year and thank you for being a fan of Fanciful Events and for giving us your support! We greatly appreciate it!
Thank you also for those who featured our parties on their blogs, it was not only an honor but a thrill and pure joy! Thanks again to all of you!
