Gone But Not Forgotten

I am busy being married to my wonderful husband and rearing our 2 children. For the time being I have decided to be a full time mommy. I love being creative and helping my clients plan events beyond their dreams so I will be back one day!

In the meantime, I am living in the moment and enjoying every day because my babies are only this age once and I hope you cherish your loved ones and until next time...Happy Planning!

Love Letters

Circle The Date Events technical director (which means he the brains & brawn of the operation! HA!) is my hubby Don. He was away last week on business travel and I just found out he is gone again next week on business travel too :( As you know we have a 19 month old, Maddy, and I was reminded how much he helps me with her.

So here I sit at my desk, writing my beloved a love letter telling him how much I appreciate all that he does for me and our little Maddycakes.
If you visit this blog reguarly there is a good chance that you are planning a wedding.  As I am sure you know by now, weddings can be very stressful and the planning of it might have caused a fight or two. So take some time out of your day and write your beloved a love letter telling him/her why you love them so much and can't wait to say "I Do" on your wedding day!
After all of your hard planning the most important part of your wedding is you two saying "I Do"

I wish you much happiness!

Until Next Time...Happy Planning

Crib Notes By Maddy: Construction Themed Birthday Party

My mom started a new series called Crib Notes by Maddy so I, the smallest team member of the Circle The Date team, can show you awesome kid party themes and hope it gives you some inspiration to get outside the big box store and create an amazing party for your little one!

While I was surfing the web looking for neat parties for kids I came across this construction theme party planned for Theo by his mommy Jessica of Juicy Bits. I think you will agree that the attention to detail is what made this party fun for all the little people, us kids!

I hope this party has inspired you to throw your little guy a construction theme party or add some of these party elements to your next get together! And I leave you today with a picture of me, Maddycakes, in my Halloween costume!

Event Planning Tip: Parking

When planning an event, especially one at a private business or home a common oversight is ample guest parking. As the party hostess it is your job to ensure you think of every scenario your guests will experience at your event (or you can hire us to think of all the scenarios for you!) Make sure your venue or home has sufficient parking for you and your guests!
We have planned enough home events that now at my first on site visit I am looking for a parking plan. Having your guests park up and down your street or neighboring private businesses is NOT a plan, unless you have invited every neighbor on your block or received their permission to have cars in front of their home. Having a planner on the job will ensure that a parking plan is worked out and we have a parking staff on hand with their fashionable orange vests and handy flash lights!

Also don't forget to post VIP signs close to your venue for your sweet grandma or older guest so they don't have to walk far! One of our fabulous clients thought of a cute idea of having the VIP guests put a custom sign in their car window that way our parking staff don't have to stop traffic to confirm the guests' identity. We are the only planning company in Yuma to offer valet parking which is nice in the colder months so guests can drop their vehicles right outside the event space and get inside to the warm party!

I hope this got you home party hosts thinking about this often forgotten topic! Please send us an email if you are interested in a complimentary consultation for your upcoming event or if you need parking or valet attendants.

Until Next Time...Happy Planning

Twas The Night Before The Wedding....P Diddy White Party Style!

Hello readers!! Sorry it has been nearly forever since I posted last! I am excited to tell you that I am pregnant with our second child and unfortunately have been sick as a dog but thankfully I think the morning aka all day/please kill me now sickness is subsiding and I am returning to my "normal" life.

We have done so many events in the past few months and I am starting to get pictures back from our wonderful photographers. I want to share with you a white modern party we planned for our fabulous client Maggie! We decided to throw in a spash of purple for some color but Maggie was floored with the results and we couldn't be happier.

With the fabulous P Diddy all white parties as my inspiration I channeled a little P Diddy (minus the large bling necklace) and here's what we gave Maggie to celebrate the night before her sister's wedding!

Guests enjoyed a create your own quesadilla bar and other comfort food;

To keep the room feeling modern we back lit the quesadilla and stocked complimentary bar. We named the bar the Garcia's El Captain Lounge and Bar after the couple's favorite bar in El Gulfo! The bar menu gave guests all the options to choose from including a delicious purple drink name the The Purple Veronica Passion after the bride.

Guests loved writing their well wishes to the bride and groom;

With children in attendance we dedicated one guest table to the kids and fully stocked the table with coloring books, crayons, bubbles, stickers, glow sticks and ofcourse whoopie cushions (which I saw the little boys using on the adult women!). We created a create your own cupcake station where the children chose their cupcake flavor from 3 options chose their frosting then chose a topping. They loved creating their own cupcake and I am pretty sure they tried each flavor of cupcake! We had a tree in the middle of the table that had cupcakes hanging from the branches!

Once they were full the guests hit the bar then the dancefloor and had a blast!

I know it's a party that this family will not soon forget and we were so honored and excited to be a part of it and are looking forward to helping them plan future parties!

A special thank you to Kim Garcia of Kim Garcia Photography for the great pictures!

Until Next Time...Happy Planning!
