Sneak Peek: Planes Trains Automobiles 1st Birthday Party


Want a peek behind the scenes at our Planes Trains Autos soiree this weekend?

Love the stripey and check textured silver propellers kids used for “Pin the Propeller on the Plane”…


Every kid’s party needs a busy, bustling arts and crafts table…


And don’t even think of throwing a party without a custom personalized pennant…



Busy busy crafty party guests – and a before snap of the Cookie Bar before the kids got their hands, icing and spinkles on them…


Toot Toot – Locomotive Lemonade coming down the tracks…


Pure Kitchen Catering whipped up an indian feast for the adult tasting bar…


The darling kid’s buffet stopped every little one in their speedy tracks…


And as always, Toni Patisserie whipped up the most sumptuous themed sweets.

Beep beep – honk honk – sure was ONE fun filled day of first birthday celebration.



Stop – Time for our 1st Party of 2014!


Vroom vroom – we’re off and running.

Tomorrow is party #1 for 2014, and we couldn’t be more excited.

And best of all, it’s for a darling young chap, who’s turning 1.

He’ll be zooming along with friends and family, planes, trains, automobiles, and the world’s most adorable party menu of Stoplight Fruit Skewers (red strawberries, yellow pineapple, green melon), Crudite Car Cups with Hummus, and these darling stripey sign straws.

Can’t wait to share all the sweet details…so stay parked – keep it in neutral – and stay tuned.

Happy birthday to you Rishabh!

Our new baby!

Our new baby!


It’s true.

We have a new baby.

New, but also, not so new.

You see, the the baby began as an idea, a tres fantastique Parisian idea,
about over three years ago.

I was trend spotting in Paris for a month, my annual summer sojourn,
soaking in crazy gorgeous beautiful everything: mouthwatering new party
food, cool new chic cocktails, fab fashion, quaint cafes, apartments,
hotels, boutiques, gifts, artwork, markets…I could go on and on.

I thought, we need a way to share this – the inspiring, the beautiful, the
elevated, the global glamour – with our clients, friends, and anyone who
wants to spend a few moments being carried away through photography and

I wanted to mashup everything new in the world of parties, celebrations,
special occasions, into a magazine, to help motivate us to make the time to
carve out and create more and more special moments and memories with our
friends and family.

What cocktail to serve up this season?

Where to grab a gorg new party dress for fall?

Who’s brand new in town for a bite and a burger with friends this weekend?

But that’s not all.

We also want to mix all of these hot new trends and features with our
lovely events, designs, flowers, paper stylings, and the overall excitement
that occurs daily within the walls of our sweet little studio and surrounds.

I just LOVE this, don’t you?

Everyday, our dream team at A Perfect Event, plans, designs and executes
amazing, elegant, swoon worthy events – chock full of fun.

And now, we get to publish them – ourselves – in the pages (screens!) – of
our very own seasonal, quarterly, magnificent magazine.

We want to share, share, share these stories, with recipes, DIYs, curated
photographs detail by detail…much, much more than our blog or traditional
social media allows.

C’est parfait, non?

Our new baby’s name?
