FIVE PERFECT TENS // CHICAGO 50TH BDAY

Last weekend, I had the chance to work with my B.F.F. I guess you could say it is a perk of the job …. especially when your best friend is a fabulous event planner at A Perfect Event. Christine planned an extraordinary 50th birthday party complete with floating lily pads in the indoor pool, a balloon drop, and pretty much the most gorgeous floral I have. ever. seen.

Vegan passed hor d’overes included Vietnamese spring rolls and tofu skewers with a carrot ginger aioli. I wish I could have put these in my pocket to eat later because they looked (and smelled) amazing!

Everywhere you turned were stunning floral arrangements. I wish my house could have this many beautiful flowers (… but I’d settle for just one … hint, hint, Phil … Valentine’s Day is approaching.)

As the gang finished singing “Happy Birthday”, a 350-balloon drop was released. Such an amazing moment to capture!

PJS AT THE PARK HYATT CHICAGO

Two weeks ago, I was asked to be apart of such a fun event put together by the Park Hyatt Chicago, A Perfect Event, and Glossed & Found. Over 30 wedding industry professionals were invited to the Park Hyatt Chicago for a night of pampering, Chicago Water Tower views and an amazing food.

The ladies from Beauty on Call were at the Park Hyatt suite for the guests to pamper themselves prior to dinner. Massages, make-up, bubbly and more.

A Perfect Event designed the gorgeous 30 foot table that was decorated with buffalo mokara orchids, green hydrangeas and gold votive candles. A Perfect Event also provided the yummy candy bar for a sweet treat following dinner. Campagne cocktails with rock candy turned a simple glass of bubbly into a playful cocktail.
