When it came time for my little girl to turn one... I wanted to do something simple and
beautiful to celebrate the occasion. I own a kids play and party space
called the COOP in LA -- so the venue was not a problem... I already
had the coolest spot in town to celebrate! I just needed a unique
theme to celebrate the most special little girl I know. We call our
sweet little lady Hazel, Hazy... so I thought I would just go with a
simple PURPLE HAZE theme. I just wanted it to be extra beautiful ...
fresh flowers and purple purple purple! I hand painted the
watercolored pink and purple party hats (which I hot glued fresh flowers to on the day
of the party! So pretty!) and dip dyed the table cloths myself the
week of the party... but I still need a WOW moment! I was driving
back from a luncheon with my brilliant business partner when it hit
me... the Jimi Hendrix PURPLE HAZE poster. I love that image...Jimi's
face with that mad fab multicolored afro! THAT was IT!!! The big WOW
moment I needed! I had a friend print a black and white image of my
Hazy on canvas, which I then hot glued to a larger piece of canvas. I
painted the background blackest black and then got to the fun of spray
painting the afros!! I ADORE how they turned out. So cool and fun --
and the three of them behind the birthday girl at cake time made SUCH
an impact. I have one of the paintings hanging in my house now -- I
love it so!!! All the super cool guests got afros and groovy round
shades... and I hand made feather headdresses for all the little and
big ladies (mommies!) at the party. I have a "there is no such thing
as too much glitter" mentality.... so I went absolutely bananas in the
glitter dept! Glittered the champagne bottles, glittered the
champagne glasses, glittered the burlap goodie bags... glitter,
glitter,glitter! I also made a large burlap flag pennant Banner that
said (in gold glitter, natch!) SWEET HAZY... and believe it or not
that #1 light up marquee sign... I made it with just foam board spray
painted gold that I glued into the shape of a 1 and poked string
lights through as the bulbs. It turned out great, I think! One of my
other favorite features was the balloon chandelier I did over the
bench in the play area. I did purple and tie dye and silver helium
balloons with different pictures of Hazel throughout her first year
hanging from each one. I tried to be sure to include all the guests
in the pics as well. It turned out really lovely -- and was so fun
for people to find their picture with Hazy in the mix!!! The super
amazing Julie from Blue Cupcakes did all my cakes and sweets. I ONLY
use Julie for my events -- and I think you can see why! She's a true
artist! And-- believe it or not -- her cakes actually taste better
than they look! Hard to believe when you see how gorgeous they look!
But she's fabulous and French and you have never tasted heaven until
you've had one of Julie's confections! Her salted caramel cupcake is
to die for!!! I was so so happy with the party. Everything looked
frilly and girlie and fabulous... and artsy and glittery and
wonderful. It was all that I wanted it to be and more!!!!
