Sabrina and Samantha celebrated their 2nd Birthday in Shabby-Chic style, which the mom wanted to achieve by bringing a dose of the outdoor gardens in. We transformed a penthouse residence into a land of floral prints, inspired by Rachel Ashwell’s world of “perfect imperfections.”
Mixed floral patterns for the linens, and brown garden parasols decorated with white lanterns flanked Sab & Sam’s dessert table. White glass lanterns with flowers inside were the centerpieces for the tables.
Photos of the twins (taken by Karen Ilagan) were displayed on the tables together with fun facts about them.
Another “wow” cake by Olive Chan of All Caked Up. I love the little bird perched on its middle layer! Too cute!
Cupcake giveaways for the adults.
More giveaways for the adults! We had tote bags custom made with Shabby-Chic fabric as their straps. Also below, yummy BIZU Macaron de Paris in candy-colored hues.
Kids brought home little stools which we also had custom made :) I personally love the dragonfly design.
We made the most out of the existing furniture of this penthouse venue and decided to make our own Shabby-Chic lounge area! This was a hit among the adults during the party :) See the rocking horse too? Also custom made for the twins.
Happy Birthday Sab & Sam!!!

We’ve done a red version, and now here’s a PINK one! There’s no denying how popular Hello Kitty is among kids and parents. Here are some snapshots of our setup that will hopefully tickle you pink and ignite dreams of frilly fantasies.
Kiddie umbrellas were used as part of the centerpieces, with cute polka dot and floral prints in our linens.

Here are some fun facts about Hello Kitty that I read on the internet:
a. Her original name was supposed to be “White Kitty” (from one of the cats that Alice kept in the book Through the Looking Glass).
b. Hello Kitty is not single. Her boyfriend’s name is “Dear Daniel”. :)
c. She has 2 pets: a little cat named “Charmmy Kitty” (yes, with a double “m”) and a hamster named “Sugar”. Charmmy Kitty was given to her by her grandfather, George White, while Sugar came from Dear Daniel.
d. Hello Kitty is a girl of substance too! She’s not just all about being cute and pretty. Since 1983, she has held the position as the U.S. Children’s Ambassador for UNICEF. :)
