My Events: Xbox Centerpieces & Toppers

Since I started my blog and posting photos of the parties I plan, I'm constantly asked to help people with their own parties. Of course this is something I've LOVED to do for so long, that it's my pleasure to assist. Back when it was just cake and ice cream in the backyard, it still meant a lot to me. Since diving deep into the blog and party world, I've learned so much and continue to learn. It's become very exciting! I'm always told "You should do this for a living" and well, I totally want too!. So I've started to move up towards that path and offer services on request. I've already been hired to plan WHOLE parties and provide ala carte services. Hence the birth of "Dainty Soirees by J"!!
My mission: To put importance on the small parties! What I've struggled with during this process, is the emphasis on the big extravagant parties, that get most of the recognition. While we would all love to plan parties that way, realistically, regular people don't have the means for all that. Small intimate parties can be/should be as special and as important. I want to provide party planning services, as well as the small details. Maybe you can't do a whole dessert/candy table but you would like something special for your centerpieces..... I'm on it! Maybe you just want cupcake toppers..... I'm on it! Maybe you just want to be pointed in the right direction for vendors, my list has tons..... I'm on it! If for some reason I can't make something you need, I definitely can find the resources that can. Not everyone knows about Etsy or the printable packages you can buy or where to get the crafting supplies at low prices.... so I'm totally on it! I'm really excited about this little project and I can't wait to start sharing my customer party photos! First up: I provided centerpieces and cupcake toppers for an Xbox Birthday party. You have to check the COOLEST of party entertainment companies that Lizeth (my customer) arranged for her boys! Rock Star mom for sure!!

You know your son's will go crazy seeing this trailer pull up to their party!! Check them out HERE!
These birthday boys were in HEAVEN!
