Yamen's First Pool Birthday Party

Yes, summer is officially over, but some parts of the world are just not ready to let this beautiful season pass by. We were very lucky to be able to make a pool party possible during the month of October thanks to the beautiful weather in Jericho! This birthday boy loves to swim in the swimming pool, so this was the perfect theme for his first birthday. We made surfboards, palm trees, beach balls, and many other pool related items to the party in many different forms. The guests had a great time taking pictures with the birthday boy and celebrating this special day. Happy first birthday to one of the cutest little swimmers, Yamen!
We designed this invitation for the party.
The dessert table, activities table, and beautiful lanterns.
The color combination was just perfect!
The dessert table. Everything about this table was pool/summer related. We decorated the table by making these surfboards and personalized banner as the table backdrop. The sweets were also pool related, and we placed everything in either pails or on "sand".
All of the pictures added to the dessert table were of the birthday boy swimming. We also added two pictures of Yamen with his dad since their birthdays are only one day apart. Each picture had a surfboard that said "happy birthday to my favorite lifeguard, my daddy!". 
Yamen is ready to get this party started!
The adorable cake and cupcakes were made by Hanadi Fun Cakes. We made a "sand" display for the cupcakes.
Time to wish Yamen a very happy first birthday!
Our homemade cookies shaped as beach balls, palm trees, watermelons, starfish, and seashells.
We also made cookies shaped as surfboards!
We also added some more "sand" to display the cookies.
Most of the sweets and snacks were placed in orange or yellow pails. We placed our homemade chocolate lollipops in fish bowls that were filled with "sand".

Flower Girl Basket

Flower girls are adorable and are always so excited to walk down the aisle. They also get so much attention, so why not give them a unique basket to hold? We made this flower girl basket using some of the wedding colors and theme - hot pink, gold, flowers, lace and pearls. It would look great in any other color too. This basket is a cute wedding keepsake to remind the flower girl of one of her best days of her life. You could check out our previous baskets and wedding items here. Congratulations Bashair on your wedding!

A Fall Themed Bridal Shower

What is there not to love about fall? Everything about this season is perfect, and this bridal shower made us love it even more. We wanted this bridal shower to be beautiful and cozy just like the season. We felt this was the perfect theme since the bride-to-be loves the color gold, is getting married during the month of October, and has "fall"en in love. We also used more fall colors such as orange, red, brown, and beige. The guests wore the same colors as the colors of the party, which completed the warm and cozy feel. The guests had a great time and loved all of the activities such as the photo booth. The bride's sisters wanted this day to be extra special for her and they were able to keep all of the details a secret. Congratulations to one of the sweetest brides that we've met!
The beautiful lanterns.
The sweet dessert table.
We added candles to the dessert table to bring the warmth of the season to the table. This beautiful cake by Sukkar Cakes was just perfect. 
We designed this background by adding the saying "She has 'fall'en in love" in a beautiful frame and glitter leaves.
We made these chocolate lollipops and added different personalized fall themed labels to them.
Mini popcorn bar.
We made these pretzel sticks dipped in chocolate.
Mini eclairs by Sukkar Cakes.
Fruit tartlets by Sukkar Cakes.
Our homemade cookies shaped as engagement rings.
We wrapped the drinks with this label that we designed according to the theme.
The activities and guest book table. We made this photo banner of the couple and added it behind the table.
One of the games was the wedding themed charades.
Another activity was the "what age was the bride" game. We designed this frame, added many different pictures of the bride, and the guests had to guess the bride's age in each picture.
Another game was the "how well do you know the bride" game. We asked the guests a couple of questions about the bride, and the person with the most correct answers won a prize.
We designed this guest book alternative for this bridal shower. Each guest wrote some advice for the bride on a wooden heart.
These are the cutest fall themed favors. Each guest got to take home a cute plant that we decorated to fit the theme. We added some more candles, and the wooden "love" letters as part of the table decorations.
The guests that won a prize got to take home one delicious chocolate covered apple that we made and decorated with a special label. The perfect fall themed prize!
We designed the label by adding the message "Leaves are falling, but love is in bloom!".
No party is complete without a photo booth. 
This is the photo booth background we made for this party. We added a gold sequin fabric and made these beautiful leaves as part of the background. 
We made this floral headband for the bride to wear.
The invitation we designed according to the theme.
