Celebrate the Small Things (and The Big Things) in Life!

20 Feb

I believe in celebrating the little things in life… life is just too short not to!  I believe that when you have family and friends surrounding you … every moment you spend with them is a celebration. As an event planner, I am always so thrilled to be invited to be a part of my client’s special moments…. For I understand and appreciate how personal those moments are.  It is in those moments, that we weave together memories that become engrained into our history, as an individual and as a family.

In my own life, I love celebrating milestones with my wonderful family and friends… and like to share them with all of you. This past weekend, we hosted a celebration for a special event in my life, my son Matthew was baptized. For us Catholics, this is a BIG celebration and so we threw quite a party… hey, why not?

After the baptism, we did a small dove release thanks to Wings of Love. The scripture tells about how God came down as a Dove…. “As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. And a voice from heaven said, ‘This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.’” The beautiful doves from Wings of Love was such a special celebration for us… and it made it just a little more special!

Lee at Iron Hen was wonderful and catered the affair with some amazing comfort food. We had BBQ Chicken (which was so tender!), green beans, salad and rolls. But my favorite was the MASHED POTATOES BAR! It had all the fixins’ and was so tasty. I was planning on taking photos of the beautiful food, but it was devoured too quickly. It was so nice to not have to worry about cooking, and with such amazing food…. Why would we?!

Julie at Simply Scrumptious provided us with a beautiful and DELECTABLE cake. It was so special to have a bible and rosary added to it… and was a beautiful centerpiece as well.

My Mom, owner at Flowers By Candlelight, and “Mimi” to Matthew was gracious to open her gorgeous home for the celebration. She put everything together and did some beautiful centerpieces (of course) to give beauty to the occasion.

I would like to thank all of these vendors for being a part of my special celebration.

We love to throw a party, spend time with those we love and do it all with style. Give us a call if you have a special occasion you would like to celebrate… a little help from us can go a long way.
