Around the World 1st Birthday

This was by far, one of my favorite partys yet!  Around the World We Go!  There were so many ways to actual take this 1st Birthday Party.  But we stuck with a map theme, based on the decor for my little tykes room.  You may remember that other 1st Birthday Party  based on a nautical theme selected the same way.  I found inspiration for the map themed party online when I searched for “globe” invitations.  I customized and created the invitations, then created the map inserts for the envelopes and out they went!

For decor I searched high and low for vintage maps and globes, but came up empty handed.  So I found these teal round paper decorations at Party City, and used them to represent the globes at the party.  I cut the banners from maps and strung them with twine, and then wrapped some boxes in maps for height to display the cupcakes.  For games, I had a US Map and asked guests to flag where they were from!  I made customized passports for our child guests which doubled as their favors, complete with their own photos, and had stamps and pads available for them.

We kept the food simple with finger sandwiches, chips, popcorn, some candy, cake and cupcakes.  I made the cake and even ventured into using fondant for the first time.

I was so happy with the way the entire party came out!  This theme could work for any age party, an engagement or bridal shower, and I even saw it done for a baby shower.  Planning a travel themed party – let us help!


Jake and the Neverland Pirates 3rd Birthday!

When it came time for my little pirate’s 3rd birthday, I had a pretty good idea what he might pick for his theme.  So, off I went in search of the perfect Jake and the Neverland Pirate Party.  I created these amazing custom invitations, and custom treasure maps.  Perfect for a pint size pirate treasure hunt, which the kids loved!  Each stop on the treasure hunt was tied in to the Disney show.  First, they got treasure maps, like Cubby’s, which I designed and “tied” with a compass ring; then Izzy’s pixie dust (bubble necklaces), and finally swords, like Jake, which we created with twisted balloons.  At the end of the treasure hunt, the kids reached a full treasure chest, and filled up their treasure bags with jewels, candy, and of course, gold doubloons.  Our party also featured a cannon ball fight, with black water balloons and we hoisted the pirate flag over the playground.

I loved this party, from inception to unwrapping the last gift – and the kids had so much fun, which was the best part.

Finally…Your Retired!

In Rehearsal Dinners, Brunches, and other Parties on April 14, 2012 at 5:27 PM

Amanda Jean Events recently coordinated with a premiere West Palm Beach Country Club on a retirement party for a repeat client!  Our guest of honor, finally, retired!  We say finally, because this was his second, and hopefully final, retirement.  Because this venue provided food service, Amanda Jean coordinated the event and planed details such as selecting masculine floral arrangements in baby blue, yellow and green, as well as linen selection & decor.  We also created custom invitations and table cards based on significant events in the guest of honors life.  The party was a real treat, and the guest of honor enjoyed strolling down memory lane with all the people who were important in his career.
