My friend Kristin turned the big 3-0 this fall. So… her husband and I created a party planning committee between ourselves back in July and set off to create the party of her dreams.
First I must disclose that I am NOT a party planner, whatsoever. But I attempted to be. Kristin’s requests were simple: champagne, pink & gold decor, and her friends & family. It was easy to get her friends & family there, but the details required some planning!
When I first started planning with Jack, I wanted to rent out an art gallery for her party. So I did some research and the costs involved were outside our budget. So… I resorted to my option 2 – a big house somewhere new! Fortunately I knew someone in Montana Ranch in north Scottsdale and we were able to rent out the community clubhouse. It was perfect! It had a great space for dancing, a fun entry way, a large patio for outdoor seating and a full kitchen.
I owe everything to our joint Pinterest board. It truly empowered me!
Of all the things we pinned, I was drawn most to the sweets, so I made a sweets table as guests came in. It included gluten-free, pink gumballs, gold swirl lolli-pops, pink cotton candy, Almond Roca and cake-pops.
Took this from Facebook so you could see the “CELEBRATE” die cuts I made! Unfortunately I didn’t get a good pic with camera.
