Let the Party Planning Begin
My daughter "Jai" will be 13 years old in September, since Asa is only going to be one year old this year - I decided he would have his Carnival themed party next year. I ran an idea by my lovely daughter and she is totally excited about having an "Indian Sari/Henna Party Soiree"
This chic birthday bash will boast bright colors, tasty treats, beautiful floral centerpieces, floating candles everywhere, soft music and I am even going to treat the guests with henna designs of their choice. I already have TONS of candles, votives, cylinder vases, frames for table numbers, white platters and much more from my wedding, the baby's shower and other weddings I have done for friends etc. I went online to start my search and I am sooo excited about what I found - take a look and let me know what you think...
I found both of these beautiful Saris online at sarijewels.com - I can just see "Jai" all done up with her jewelry and tastefully made-up face. Since yellow is such a lovely color on my daughter, I thought maybe something in yellow would look amazing on her, pink is the color for the event however and I do love this white and pink floral combination.
I love the subtle progression in color on this cake-
I will let Jai decide on the number of tiers- I simply must show her this cake, it would be soo cute with "bling" all over the place.
Something frosty to drink will be much appreciated in such warm weather -
Totally smitten with this table and I have cylinders in all of these sizes and votives, I have the candles too - just need the flowers! (YAY!)
An invitation similar to this style will go out to her guests
I have apothecary jars just waiting to be used again, I cannot wait to recreate a sweets table like this for her.
Mini everything possible will be served
I'm sure the guests will enjoy this- so will I...
I am already having soo much fun planning out "Jai's" special day - The hard part is over, now to get to the fun part and plan - plan - plan. I will definitely keep you all posted.
