The Princess Dreams

The Princess Dreams…

And Mommy makes them come true! Before I knew it the ripe age of FOUR closed in on me pretty quickly, and without further adieu my daughter dictated the theme before I could blink my eyes. Of course it had to be no other than an Aurora Sleeping beauty tea party. The problem: the boys. How was I going to incorporate this event where it could work for both genders?   With some deliberation I figured out that I would make it so our list of boys that would be invited will  decide if they will be a Prince or a Knight for the day. Problem solved.

Many fun games like Royal ball and Knight bubbles would keep our little knights and both Prince’s entertained as the girls got dolled up at the Beauty Bar with nothing else but the royal makeup from our latest Disney Trip at the Bippity boppity boo Salon.  Each little princess sparkled with jewelry and light up rings and wands that was given.  Gems for the face , Tierra’s, Crowns for the Prince and Knight Masks were more of the fun accessories for the day for these little cuties.

Surprisingly enough the boys even got into pouring the tea and adding fruit into the cups and china plates…

Only Secretly Mommy took a heart attack every time I watched the passing of the tea take place, not because the tea was hot. (No – I am not that stupid, it was all different flavors of organic chamomile iced tea) it was because I bought vintage teacups. My original thought was to buy all mismatched cups I would not care about, but than the control person that I am couldn’t have mismatched colors since my daughter insisted on “MAKE IT PINK”!

Everything for the event had to be shades of pink, “no blue allowed”, said the Birthday Princess. Such high opinions for such a little age don’t cha’ think? makeitpink

So the purchase of the Vintage china tea set happened at a local tag sale.

The set I got lucky to stumble across had lovely dark pink roses and gold trim. It seemed so fitting since Sleeping Beauty’s nick name is ‘Rose’ – mixed and matched also with a light pink and gold demitasse set that I was so lucky to acquire from a beautiful bridal shower I attended some years ago. Accented with a pretty pink runner with a rose print and cushions to match was a last minute touch in the fabric store’s scrap isle.

I thoroughly enjoyed putting this princess tea party together . It really was a perfect fit for our little sleeping beauty and nothing was more gratifying watching the reaction of our Birthday Princess upon arrival along with all of her friends as they took in all the details of this Enchanted Princess Tea Party.  The mini table that my Husband and Father put together the night before was a perfect fit to sit and sip tea on the rose DIY cushions.

Hello world!

 

I am finally up and running. It took me so much time as I pondered over the best web design and ofcourse the best person to design it. I found Casey from Sugar Studios and fell in love with her style as I felt she would truly be able to represent the feel I was going for. Ofcourse #SheNailedIt! After much discussion with many different graphic artists they had advised me my brand needed a face lift. I was real hesitant at first because I grew to love the freestyle handwritten font I had created with another sweet designer that since retired doing this kind of work .  Being an artist it is sometimes hard to embrace change of concept when you have something else cascading around in your head ,  but through Casey’s creative direction and guidance I decided to go for it. She came up with the most simple drawing for the header but yet clean and creative enough that still makes that impact and represents the brand of dear jeni. I love that the over all concept of this blog and design is well proportioned and  yet still pleasing like eye candy. If your looking to brand your business like a boss Sugar Studios is the place to jump start your venture!

Meet Casey from Sugar Studios
