One of my favorite little client/friends just turned 4 and her birthday bash was an incredible event! (as always…) When Tara (her mom) asked me to photograph it – I hated to tell her that I was on still hobbling around on crutches….there was just no way I could do a *real* session….so….I did the next best thing…Ali and I went as guests!! Tara & Marc always throw the BEST parties so I knew it would fun to go without the pressure to have to *get the shot*! Of course, being the camera-geek that I am – I had to limp around and shoot a little anyway – there was way too much photographic *eye candy* to let the moment pass me by….
Lily’s party had a *Mary Poppins* theme – she had seen this Mary Poppins party on my blog and she hired the amazing Donna Collins at Party Wishes. Donna always does such an incredible job! She is a party-planning goddess :)
I was BLOWN AWAY by the food at this party – it was catered by Bite Catering Couture and it was just crazy-good! AS the name suggests – each item was *bite-sized* – and they were all incredibly delicious – from the elegant little individual crudite (served in shot glasses with ranch dressing at the bottom)….to the yummy mini-burgers (blue cheese and carmelized onion)…to the most adorable little chocolate shakes….just thinking about it again makes my mouth water! If you are in the Los Angeles area and are planning a party – check them out!
(oh – and you know those *hints* I’ve been alluding to in posts like this? well…we’ll find out what i was planning……right after the break! (said in my best Ryan Seacrest/American Idol drawing out the suspense voice) …soon…….very soon….
the birthday girl blows out the candles are her so-cute-its-a-darned-shame-to-cut-it cake! (for the record – i did NOT eat any cake – i abstained! but i heard it was tasty!)
some of the *princesses* escaped upstairs and raided Lily’s dress-up closet!
