This party for my awesome wild crazy drama baby couldn’t have been possible without the generous vendors who offered their services to me either for free or for a generous discount. I should say that I hand picked these vendors myself before they offered any sort of discount to me and they all made our party super awesome for our little guy.
Photographer: Jenna Walcott. She also did our 1 year photshoot for G. She’s totally amazing as you can tell. I specifically wanted her because she’s extra great with indoor lighting. She doesn’t make you look like you have a giant flash monster in your face. Also I think she photoshops wrinkles: sold.
Music: I got SO lucky with this guy. Alex is Alex and the Kaleidoscope Band. He’s like big time around here. Here’s why he’s awesome: 1) He’s not a clown. Seriously. I did not want some weird guy dressed up in weird shit. No, he’s a regular guy. Also he’s sort of cute *bonus*. And he did such a great job with the parents and the kids. LOVE LOVE LOVE him. He also gave us a bunch of his CD’s which G dies for. I wanted like sort of “cool” music for the kids and we got it.
Cake: Allison’s Cups and Cakes did such super job with the cake. I sent them an MS Paint picture (obv) of what I wanted and they made that masterpiece. It tasted like rainbow angels. G loved it too (eventually). We had chocolate with mocha filling and red velvet with vanilla filling.
Cookies: One Preppy Cookie is my go to for all of my cookie needs. She actually just did a batch for me for Christmas. It includes cookies shaped as spaghetti and a jesus cross and one jewish star (BECAUSE I LOVE THE JEWS NO MATTER WHAT YOU ALL SAY). She can do anything and they taste even better than they look. Love her.
Any decor or cool thing you see anywhere: Shannon from Bottle Pop Party Company did everything. She’s a reader and emailed me to help out. I was like YES PLEASE HELP ME GOOD LORD HELP ME. I gave her like NO direction and she did everything beyond perfect. I mean do you die over those album covers with G’s face on them? And the fabric punk rock ONE? She’s so amazing and awesome and I love her.
And the biggest thank you to our friends and family for making G’s party so wonderful.
Now, only nice comments on the post about MY SON’S BIRTHDAY PARTY.
Love to you all
MODG MOM (of a 1 year old aaaah!)
