Thing 1 & Thing 2: Jonah & Savannah (01/09/2014)
Approximately a year ago we got the amazing opportunity to design and coordinate my niece and nephew’s 1st birthday party, a set of twins named Jonah and Savannah. Birthdays are always a ton of fun because as designers we get to channel our inner kid and create from the whimsical part of our brain. A “Thing 1 and Thing 2” theme was ideal for this event. It features twins, includes bold colors, and people of all ages love the Dr. Seuss series and its characters.
This was a large venture for a birthday party, because the guest count stood at 200 persons including children. Utilizing the gymnasium of a local church, we were able to transform it into a fanciful and imaginative space Dr. Seuss would be proud of.
The dessert table was lined with a red polka dot table cloth, and was overflowing with red, blue and white sugary sweets and delicious delectables. The beautiful 2 tier birthday cake and twin smash cakes were hand crafted by our favorite cake designer Cracked Coconut Cakes. The backdrop was draped with a turquoise and red fabric, multiple red frames with pictures and initials, and giant # 1 red balloon. The guest tables were covered with red or blue table cloth and theme inspired balloon centerpieces.
This was a one of a kind birthday party that was enjoyed by adults and kids alike.
