Here’s just a couple shots of the adult tables from the firefighter birthday party I posted last week. There were separate tented areas for the kids tables and round adult tables, brought together with similar colors and the firefighter theme!
All adults went home with cookie favors from Diddy Riese, a UCLA favorite. They also helped to decorate the table!
Custom signage directed guests to the drink table, set up with lemonade and flavored water.
Happy hump day!
Hey y’all! (Do you hear my southern twang?) There’s been a lack of posts because… I’ve moved back home to Atlanta! It’s been a whirlwind of moving and settling in. Thank you to all who have followed me in Tokyo. Although I’ll be posting less on Japan, there’ll still be lots of parties, food, travel, and DIY. My first project back was my dear friend’s son’s firefighter-inspired 4th birthday party. It was peak summer in LA so I had decor to match – bright, happy, and fun-filled! There were separate tented areas for the kids and adults, brought together with yellow and red decor.
What kind of cake do you have for a firefighter party? A fire engine of course…
.. topped off with adorable minions.
And matching water bottles!
I’m kicking myself for not taking photos of the party favors – fire house books and Diddy Reese cookies in custom-made fire engine canvas tote bags.
The topping of the party? A real fire engine complete with real firemen from 5 Alarm Fire Engine. These guys were awesome – great with the kids, prepared with tons of activities, professional, and patience galore for the 40+ (yes FORTY!) kids that attended. I highly recommend them if you’re having a similar party in the LA/OC/Inland Empire area. The kids and many of the parents were thoroughly entertained with fire hose water shooting, tug of war, dressing in all the gear, and fire engine rides around the neighborhood. Fun for everyone!
Tomorrow, the adult tables! :)
I’m in love with this black and white striped bridal shower featured on The Sweetest Occasion. It’s rare to see a bridal shower decorated with mostly black, but with those pops of pink are such a great feminine contrast.
Those stripes and pops of gold? *swoon* Continue reading

To celebrate the opening of Fresca, we held an office warming party! There just aren’t enough office warming parties. Wouldn’t you love to see some of the great offices out there? Or to see where your friends work? I say we spread the word and bring a little more fun into offices all around :)
For all of you who couldn’t join our party, we’re offering VIP accounts to the first 1,000 people who register to the site. This means 10% off all purchases until the end of the year along with some other fun insider offers. Usually, you have to spend over a certain threshold to get this status so spaces are filing up pretty fast. There’s a step-by-step English guide too for those like me! Continue reading
My brother and his fiancé invited us over for a fun-filled asian taco night! She prepared a taco bar (and you know I love food bars – hot dog, pizza, dessert) inspired by fresh ingredients often used in asian cuisine. Continue reading
Don’t you love it when cultural traditions are mixed in with modern weddings? At my friend Susie’s wedding at Padonia Swim Club, there were many women dressed in colorful hanbok, and they held a Korean wedding tea ceremony. It was my favorite detail of the wedding! Continue reading
