Lions, turtles & parrots, O MY!  Lily loves the Zoo.. so the zoo is what she got, in her very own yard to celebrate her second birthday party with family and friends.

Country Fair 1st Birthday Celebration

Ya'll round up for a BBQ!

A steaming grill, balloons and bushels of chips made for a fun afternoon at Luke's first birthday country fair!!!  Over 150 guests enjoyed a beautiful afternoon seated at handmade wooden farm tables beneath hundreds of balloons dancing in arches in the breeze.  Rustic benches made it easy for the little fair-goers to jump away from lunch and run around the massive lawn, jump and slide in the bounce house, get their rosy cheeks painted and, of course, ride ponies!

BBQ burgers and dogs filled wooden tray plates, while guests gnashed on bushel baskets brimming with tortilla chips and salsas.  Red and white checkered runners and red bandana napkins created a casual and celebratory feel throughout this sprawling backyard in the middle of fresh, spring green, corn fields. Chilled giant mason jar dispensers poured fresh lemonade and iced tea endlessly, as our wheel barrow of "Big Boy Brew" iced beer went just as quickly!

Guests sang "Happy Birthday" to our blue eyed guest of honor and indulged in crates and galvanized trays of BBQ hot dog and sunflower themed decadent cupcakes.  As the afternoon faded away, our happy and sun-kissed guests were hugged and treated to freshly baked apple and berry pie pops.  The iconic number "1" was custom cut into each pop and tied off with adorable tags thanking them for celebrating with the party's "Cutie Pie," Luke!

Surprise... All Black Everything!

What an exciting event we were fortunate to coordinate! A surprise 40th birthday, planned to perfection by Stems at the Palatine with a very loving wife.  We had fun decorating in a Rockband-Racecar theme, and of course - All black everything!

Imagine this... 200 people standing behind a gated entrance. A tired man, just arriving home from the airport. He drove up, gates opened, lights flipped on and SURPRIIIIISE!! He was shocked... It was an awesome moment!

As he made his way into the party, he had a property filled with all of his dearest family & friends, and was in for an onslaught of even more surprise!  Food Trucks including Dusty Buns Bistro, A Taco Truck & Rallys were serving up delicious food all through the evening.  His favorite band played into the wee hours of the morning while friends danced, with one even serenading him with a live performance.  And to cap the evening... his gorgeous wife popped out of a life-size cake!

I've never seen two people with a family more in love  - it was heart warming. Cheers to you both. So happy we could help create a memorable 40th birthday celebration for you!
