Sneak peek of our Traditional Persian Wedding at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, Ft. Lauderdale – 9/1/2018

We had a great time at this absolutely beautiful traditional Persian wedding last night at the Ritz Carlton Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale.  Music was fantastic, views were spectacular and the bride and groom were thrilled with the outcome.  The amazing flowers that gave the entire ballroom the spectacular look were created by A Creation by Mario spectacular arrangements for all of the centerpieces and throughout the venue.  More pictures and full post to come. IMG_5908IMG_5907IMG_5904IMG_5915


Anita’s 90th Birthday Party

What can I say, what a special birthday party for this amazing young lady who we think the world of.  Anita’s 90th Birthday Party was definitely a birthday party she’ll remember from the amazing group of family and friends to the Mariachi’s where she got to sing along with them to an delicious paella dinner.  Party was fantastic.  Balloon garland by Fortuna Events, flowers by A Creation by Mario her talented son and the delicious cake and cupcakes by Ciscas Sweet Spot


Simply Stunning Table Setup

This is one of my favorite table setups. Elegant crystal candleholders with crystal tear drops and hydrangeas and orchid flowers that wrapped around the 3 candleholders.  Napkin holders were small vases that held a rose. The rosette tablecloth in ivory and ivory shear covers with the flower to tie it all up, added an amzing look to this setup.  It’s amazing what an equisite tablecloth and chair covers can do for your table setup. Simply Stunning.


Rose Gold & Blush Color Palette

Love this color palette.  It’s one of our favorites. 


Whimsical Baby Shower

Baby Lamb theamed baby shower.  Quaint and whimsical and an absolutely gorgeous day to have such a joyous event.  The future Mom and Dad fell in love with the theme, decor and the food and desserts were excellent.  This shower took place in a backyard setting and turned out beautiful. This is a perfect example of how to decorate in small spaces and expand on height with the hanging sails and moss wreaths that hung from the sails, made it feel way bigger.  We had a great time setting this baby shower up.

Want something different for your dessert table. Try Ceci’s Flans!

I recently had the great opportunity of working with Ceci from ceci’s flans.  She created not only various flavors of her AMAZING flans for an event I had, but she made some amzing naked cakes for me as well.  Ceci’s flans are the most delicious flans I’ve tasted to date.  She creates mini flans for weddings, quinceaneras, private parties, baby showers, etc.  She decorates them with beautiful spun sugar and other decorations appropriate to the event, which look amazing.  I had the chance to taste the cheese flan and the regular flan she makes and I ordered two more from her the day after my event for a private party.  She also has other flavors of flans, such as caramel, coconut guava, guava and cheese and cheese flans. OMG, you must try them.

So if you’re looking for something different for your next event or just want them for a weekend dinner party.  I would definitely call Ceci from ceci’s flans. You won’t regret it.

Our most recent bohemian inspired wedding. Haig & Nancy – The Walton House, Homestead, FL

This amazing bohemian inspired wedding is absolutely on the top of my list of favorite weddings I’ve had  the pleasure of coordinating.  The bride and groom and the entire wedding party and all of thir guests flew in from New York City to be part of this amazing wedding.   This rainforest like venue is the Walton House in Homestead, FL. One of the most unique venues I’ve ever worked in from the minute you walk onto the grounds you feel like you are in the jungle.  The venue comes equiped with all types of tropical animals, parrots who by the way greet your guest with a “hello” to monkeys, limers, peacocks, beautiful Koi ponds and so much more.  I believe the pictures say it all. The amazing Photography is by DavidZ Phtographers; Venue The Walton House; Cake and Desserts were created by the Cloud 9 Bakery. Flowers by Beautiful Kreations; Vintage Furniture by A Muse Decor; Design & Decor by Fortuna Events.
