Buckaroo Baby Shower

So Julie is finally having a boy after her 3 girls and a cowboy themed baby shower was just the right fit!  We are warning you, this was amazing and over the top.  Many family and friends came and she is all ready for her little buckaroo to arrive!
This baby shower was planned and carried out with the help of Mia Bella Floral. 

March in Arizona... definitely had to be outside and our friend Gwen from Mia Bella Floral has the most beautiful Chinese Elm tree in her front yard that she so generously offered for the local of this amazing party!  Trimmed with chandeliers, lights and Chinese lanterns, it made the perfect setting for a night time event!

Photography of this event was done by Poppy Seed Photography {C.B.} and

Lanterns hanging from the tree.  Once the sun went down the whole place sparkled
Denim pockets filled with napkins and a fork for each place setting 

 Mason jars with candles lined the front yard and made it so no one parked at the entrance

 Menu: pulled pork sandwiches, salad and pasta

Polka Dot Wedding Party

So this was a party to celebrate the couple's sealing in the Arizona Temple.  She wanted it fun, kid friendly and loaded with things for the guests to do and eat!  She definitely delivered! 
The event was held at Mesa Jacee's Courtyard in Mesa.  From the outside it isn't much, but this place is awesome and you can rent it for an amazing deal. The owners are so nice and VERY accommodating!
Only the buffet was served inside. All the tables, dancing and other food were in the courtyard. 
There was a full Hawaiian spread of heavenly fried rice, noodles, teriyaki chicken, fresh fruit and creamed corn!.  A ribbon wall with pictures of the happy couple and their family served as the perfect backdrop. 

 Water station
 Outdoor drink station (serve your own soda on sonic ice!  They even had juice boxes for the kids.)
Besides the full buffet they served Cotton Candy, Popcorn,  Kalbi ribs on the grill, cupcakes and cookies, and Sub Zero ice cream

Centerpieces were whimsical and yet super elegant.  Custom made polka dot linens with red trim made it casual yet ready for a party
