Private Party/Engagement Dinner Party

Julia and Andy hosted a gathering in Julia's parents backyard recently to celebrate their engagement, and it was such a relaxed and enjoyable event with great detailed ideas (particularly regarding food), that I thought it'd be a good pre-Memorial Day weekend blog. I kind of want to throw a catered wood-fired pizza party now.Venue: Private residenceCoordination: H.

Kirsten's party celebrating her completion of graduate school is the kind most people would love to attend. Exclusive for family and close friends, the party was planned by A Good Affair and hosted at the ever classy Huntington Beach Hilton Waterfront hotel, featuring lively casino games from Ace High, bright colorful florals from My Floral Bliss, cigars, libations, tacos, fresh sliders cooked right in front of you, and personalized salads. The crowning touch was an adorable dessert station designed by A Good Affair, to showcase and serve Simply Sweet Cakery's beautiful sweets.
