A Surprise Party, Part IV

It's been quite a day! But the reason that we wanted to break apart this particular party is because we want you to see what a fun and creative process planning something special in your own home can be. This was my first grown-up, I can't believe we hired a chef and actually had rentals in my home, definitely a splurge kind of party but it was so worth it. Sitting in such a warm and familiar spot, all gussied up and glittery, with the people that you love, sharing wine and laughs and a sense of...

All wrapped up into one big ball of pretty. Two of the areas that we really wanted to concentrate on for our Surprise Party were the bar area - which would include a fun pink champagne +...

A Surprise Party, Part II

Once you have your vision nailed down, it's time to start conceptualizing each piece. Starting with the paper goods, as it's those invitations that have to be popped into the mail before the rest of the party comes to fruition. And the paper pieces for this wedding ended up taking center stage. When we were conceptualizing everything, we really felt inspired by watercolor and calligraphy. Handcrafted pieces that addes a sense of art to our...

Because we whole heartedly believe that whether you are planning a wedding, or a surprise birthday party like this one, that having a refined inspiration board will...

Dinner Party Inspiration at Crush by Sarah True

For a girl that is tethered to her desk the vast majority of the time, I'm pretty close to a kid in a candy store when we get to help host an event in our own hometown of Boston. Especially when it's on Newbury Street at the fabulous Crush boutique and literally overflowing with the most absurdly good cupcakes and pretties a girl could ever want. Designed and executed by our sweet friend...
