This month we had the honor of helping Carissa Lawson of News 12 New Jersey with her daughter Briella's first birthday. Carissa contacted me a month before the party while I was still on bed rest from a surgery, and although I was on a temporary hiatus - I just couldn't say no to this amazing opportunity! Carissa found about The Petite Soiree through our Baby Lifestyles feature for my daughter's Sleeping Beauty Princess Party. You can see the original Sleeping Beauty Party this party is inspired by clicking here. We're proud to say that the party was featured on News 12 in the morning by Carissa herself a week after the party, on Friday, November 19th! Carissa loved all of the curated items in the sleeping beauty party so a rental made the most sense given the short time frame. We coupled the rental items with customized pieces like stationary and signage created with Desiree of Paper Candee.

We assisted with spatial planning for the venue during our initial site survey, layout advice, + styling advice on how to make the best use of the space by masking problem areas + creating distinctive focal points.
Children enjoyed the hand made coloring books with custom jackets I hand made for the party.
Paper Candee designed a beautiful coloring book cover to coordinate.
Keisha of Cupcake Wishes + Birthday Dreams provided the beautiful yarn pom pom garland over the fireplace.
We provided the play tent rental for children to play + pretend in. We also assisted Carissa in picking up all outside rental furniture for the event like the children's table + chairs shown. As well as providing styling advice on the color + feel the children's table should have to go with the rest of the party.
