Hello Society members, welcome to my blog! I never thought in a million years, I would join the world of bloggerization. But here I am. I was so excited to get this blog started that I decided to cover an event that I did earlier in the year for my sister-in-love. We talked about and agreed on a Jungle theme in November and then in December the theme got changed to baby superheros. So with only a month to spare (barely), I tackled this event like a lion on a gazelle.
So, just some tidbits about me:
I have always had a love of creative things and having my own business. As a little girl, you know back when the Internet came on a disk, I would color sheets of paper, cut them up and then rearrange them into different shapes. My abstract art. I have a naturally creative family. My great-grandmother designed and sewed clothing. My grandmother was a painter and my mother has a clothing line, and has a wonderful eye for event design. With that being said, you can pretty much guess that I am amazing. Toot-toot, beep-beep (that's me...and my horn). So, anyway, when it comes to events I am all over it. I get so excited, like going to a buffet after a 5 day fast excited. I get a rush of ideas for every event and I take to getting an inspiration board together and then figuring out how to accomplish it all with 3 dollars and 6 dimes. So in 2009, I along with a friend decided that we would start an event planning company and we hit the ground running. From there, I expanded into opening a company by myself and Soiree was born. Though my lineage of creativity is strong, I know my gifts come from the good Lord and he has blessed me with the opportunity to do exactly what I love. This is just the beginning of everything he has for me and I stand firm on faith that he will allow me to do this full time and get from behind a desk...unless it's a crafting desk, but you know what I mean. Okay the formalities are out the way, lets get back to business.
Superhero baby shower: I offered to help my sister-in-love with her baby shower with the ulterior motive of us getting closer. Leave it all to me I said, I got this and I went to work on an invite. My google game is strong so, I scoured the web for inspiration and I drew up my concept.
And then I took to MS Word to create this little monster. It was a headache because I had to place all those little squares and things one by one. Ugh. And all while I was fighting myself to "Just buy some stinking invitations" I had in the back of my mind that its cheaper to make it and once I do it once, I won't have to do it again. It took me a while to get it done, like 45 minutes actually because, me being the perfectionist I am, I had to have all my squares juuust right. And it came out pretty freakin' AWEEE---SOME!
After I completed these invites, I felt pretty amazing myself but I had to give myself a prep talk to take on my next idea which was my version of the "Daily Planet" newspaper. In it would be all the baby shower games for the guests. So after a day of "Do it and get it over with" I created this magazine. With layout and thinking of games and everything of the such it took me 4 days to complete. And then I thought oh super hero place mats and then 3D superheros for the centerpieces and then napkin rings and on and on and on.
Over the event was a success. The Honorees where thrilled and the guests had a blast with my Destroy the super hero game that I came up with. The coolest thing was, I was able to reuse this event for my son's 4th birthday party the following week. WIN-WIN. Take a look at the some of the details from this SUPER super hero themed baby shower.
