Cinderella Birthday Party

Well, I've been making (trying to make) impressive birthday parties for at least three years (that's how old LoLo is). When I was getting ready to think up LoLo's first birthday party I looked online for inspirations and got entirely overwhelmed by the amazing settings and parties that many moms posted online. I started with an image of a birthday banner and cake, but now I wanted cupcake toppers, backdrops, fancy finger food, cute gifts with "thank you" tags, adorable photos, an impressive cake and a shot of a table ready to be published in Parenting Magazine :))).  Well, I don't know whether I've achieved the "magazine shot" stage yet, but surely I've learnt a trick or two how to make a table pretty. And as always, my friend Bird and her printables played a huge role. Three parties, many sleepless hole punching nights and numerous hubby arguments why the "extravaganza", I think I've finally found the answer to "What I'll be when I grow up?" I am saying this with a lot of caution, as things may not always work out the way I plan them, but one thing is sure .. I LOVE PARTIES and making children's eyes shine. (Though I have to admit, most kids at the toddler age don't go WOW WOW WIE WOW over a tissue rose topiary; however they will talk about it months later - at least that's what mine do!)

LoLo harom eve szuletett meg, ez ido ota tervezem/szervezem nekik a partykat. Az elso even ramentem az internetre inspiracio kereses gyanant es elremultem micsoda pompas, vidam, osszhangolt partykat szerveznek mas anyukak. En egy egyszeru "Boldog Szulinapot" feliratra gondoltam es valami tortara, de miutan vegigneztem par oldalt a neten, tudtam hogy ettol sokkal komplikaltabb a dolog. Sutemenydisz szurokakat akartam, szep hatteret, kulonleges party eteleket/desszerteket, "koszonom hogy eljottel" cedulakat, impressziv vendegseregnek szant ajandekokat es olyan fotokat amiket az ember csak eletstilus/gyermekneveles magazinokban lat!Nem igazan tudom hogy a magazin fotok mar megvalosultak volna-e, de egy par trukkot mar elsajatitottam hogy kell egy egyszeru asztalt terult, terult asztalkamma varazsolni. Mint mindig, most is Bird grafikai segitsegettek megadni az unnep hangulatat. Harom kimerito party, sok ejjeli nyiras/vagas
es ferjemnek valo magyarazkodas utan (hogy miert kell ekkora problemat csapni egy gyerekpartybol) talan vegre megtudom valaszolni azt a kerdest hogy "Mi leszel ha nagy leszel?" Csak ovatosan irom le, mert sok minden valtozhat menet kozben, de egy biztos, imadok partykat szervezni (na jo, resztvenni is) es a csillogo gyerekszemeket bamulni. (Bar be kell valljam, hogy nem biztosn hogy egy 3-4 evest igazan megfogja a szalvetarozsa gomb; de ha olyanok mint LoLo akkor par hettel kesobb valahogy szoba hozza).

So, with all the fanfare .. here is the first LoLoVie party. The birthday girl's (Sanna's) criteria were straightforward: Cinderella and Pink! And I did just that (though I wasn't exactly prepared for the lime green wall and a TV screen bang in the middle of it all!)      

Dobporges ... pufff puff puff .... ime az elso LoLoVie party! A szulinapos, Sanna kivansaga nem volt tul komplikalt: Hamupipoke es rozsaszin! Igy en pontosan erre a temara keszultem (bar a libazold falra igazan nem voltam felkeszulve a TV-vel egyutt ami eppen a dekoracio kozepen terpeszkedett) 

Check out this cupcake stand (uhmm meatball stand). Three glass plates of different sizes from a local dollar store; two old fashioned tall ice cream glasses in between stuffed with sparkly gift ribbon).

Nezzetek ezt a harom emeletes sutemenytartot! Az egy dollaros boltban vettem harom kulonbozo nagysagu tanyert (nem egy dollarert :), kozejuk ket regimodi fagyispoharat tettem es csillogo kek ajandekszalaggal kottettem at)..  

See the pink rose topiary below on the left side????
That's two candle holders from a dollar store glued together topped with a styrofoam ball with tissue paper roses glued on.

Latjatok a bal oldali rozsaszin gombot? Ez is dollarosboltbol van - ket gyertyatarto osszeragasztva, a tetejen egy labda, amire szalvetaviragok vannak ragasztva. 

Also notice the cupcake stand - the castle! Two pizza boxes on top of each other wrapped in craft paper, a box from a diapers.com delivery in the middle and two Annie's bunny jellies snack boxes glued together, wrapped! Those cute little towers were collected from family bathrooms - yes, they are from toilet paper rolls and useful for so many other craft projects!

Es a kastely??? Ket pizzas doboz becsomagolva, a kozepen egy kuldoszolgalat doboza es a tetejen pedig "Annie" nyuszicukorka dobozok. A kis tornyokat csaladi WC-kbol szedtem ossze.

The letters are from Michael's and glued to a stand also from bought at this store.  

A betuket a Michael's boltban vettem, es az alvanyokat is ebben a boltban.
The Christian Louboutin (: shoes were made from a pattern found HERE
(A lot of work, but what would a girl not do for a pair of heels?)  

A Christian Louboutin cipok IGY keszultek
Sok- sok munka, de megerte! 
This amazing birthday cake was made by Sanna's mommy - Andrea. Spectacular!
You may watch the video with a few more shots from a party HERE

Itt talalsz egy rovid videot a szuletesnaprol ... 

Thank you to Andrea for entrusting me with the party and to everyone who always said "I should do this!".  I am in business" now :) If you live in NYC or close by and would like my help planning/designing/creating your party drop me an email to: lolovienyc@gmail.com or you can contact me on facebook through the "LoLoVie" page. Hopefully, I'll have a website and all the trimings!
