Bradley's Thomas the Train Birthday

Saturday was spent with some of my favorite people. My friend Candace and her family are my heart and it was an honor to assist with her sons third birthday. Candace is a lot like me when it comes to kids parties. She goes over the top.
Bradley's party took place at the B&O railroad museum in Baltimore. If you are ever in the area it's a fantastic place to explore with your children. FYI, this entire party had to be set up in 30 min! Check out all the pictures below

Each child received a hat and a bandanna

I re-created the centerpieces from the Thomas the train party found on P is for Party. They were originally created by Kelly from the Party Dress and Melissa from Project Nursery. I used 2.00 boxes found at Michael's.

Candace found the suitcases from the Land of Nod. This worked perfectly for the favors

Sex in the City Bridal Shower

In honor of the The Sex in the City 2 Movie I am posting a fabulous bridal shower that was sent to me by one of my readers, Meagan. She has some terrific friends that gave her the best shower a girl could ask for. Check out the pictures below and the details in Meagan's own words. Enjoy!

The event began with a mystery text instructing the bride to go home and look in her closet. There she found a little black dress, hot pink accessories, and instructions to await her transportation that would arrive at 5:30pm.

At 5:30pm a taxi cab (how New York!) pulled up to take her to the shower destination, where she was met by her father, her future father-in-law, her brother, and her bridesmaids' fathers, who had been serving as valets for the evening.

From there, she was welcomed to the SATC-themed bash by her bridesmaids and their accommodating hubbies, who dressed in tuxedo tees and served food and drink at the party.

No SATC-related detail was left out:
  • Guests' stiletto'ed invite asked them to don the apparel of their favorite SATC character and a "costume contest" was later held, with the bride acting as judge.
  • Upon arrival, guests were instructed to select name tags indicating which SATC-character they most identified with: Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte and Miranda
  • Hot pink and black were the colors of the evening
  • Flirtinis and cosmopolitans were the signature cocktails of the evening, served in hot pink martini glasses
  • Table centerpieces were comprised of black feathers, hot pink hydrangeas, and "diamonds"
  • A pink-and-black New York City skyline cake was baked using the Magnolia Bakery recipe and was adorned with a Manolo Blahnik and pearl necklace
  • The Sex & the City Movie soundtrack was playing throughout the evening
  • Guests received copies of the Sex & the City Movie DVD as prizes for the night's various games
  • The bride received a SATC-themed gift from her bridesmaids, which included a gift bag for each character... each filled with character-appropriate lingerie (think conservative and classy for Charlotte; leopard print for Samantha)

Happy Mother's Day!

Wow! I woke up this morning to breakfast in bed and then I went to check the activity on my blog and found that the new design had been inserted. What a great mother's day gift. I have to thank Dionne from Studio Chic Designs for bringing this vision to life. She did a great job and was very professional the entire way. I hope you all like the new Enchanted Expectations blog design and logo!
