With the COVID-19 Pandemic altering the end of the 2019-2020 school year our hearts go out to all of the seniors whose Graduation plans were put to the ultimate test. While Graduations and the Celebrations surrounding them may look a bit different, we know that with a bit of creativity and flexibility it can be a milestone celebration never to forget! Raeven’s drive by Graduation Parade and Celebratory Family Dinner was the perfect mix of family, friends, puns on quarantine, social distancing and merriment! A modern black and white theme set the stage at Chateau Lill as a well deserving Graduate was honored. Classmates, friends and family celebrated Raeven with a drive by parade complete with favors and a yearbook signing. Following the parade her family was able to come together to celebrate her Graduation from Cedarcrest High School and enjoy an intimate dinner before she heads off to UW for College this fall.
While the Pandemic isn’t over our Quarantine at Home is! Time to Celebrate our Freedom from Quarantine!
You’re Invited to a Post Pandemic Party!
As we Celebrate the 4th of July, we are mixing in a few other holidays our family missed together during Quarantine. An Easter Egg Hunt, Birthday Cake for Johny, a Toast to all the Mom’s and Dad’s and High School Graduation Wishes to Sarah!
I am often asked by clients what I love best about my job and frankly it is the community I’ve built over the years I’ve owned Pink Blossom Events. This community is made up of my “competition” and colleagues I work with daily. They are good friends whom have become my extended family. My community is there for advice, to hold me accountable for my services, to share stories with (we have some good ones!), as well as the ones we lean on when life brings the unexpected. . This July it will be two years since my dad passed away, in the heart of summer wedding and event season. It’s hard to believe nearly two years have passed as often it feels like just yesterday. As I reflect back upon the time I am filled with an overwhelming sense of gratitude for this community.
My community sent flowers, cards and their sympathies. They checked in to see how they could help. My “competition” offered to step in on my events, not worried about their full schedules. . That summer we had my Dad’s Celebration of Life and because of this community my Dad received the Celebration of Life he deserved. You see, he loved a good party! . Jardin del Sol Garden Wedding Venue was a sea of Crimson and Gray (Go Cougs!), and of course some rogue Husky fans. We served Corona as that was his beer of choice. We chose azaleas for the centerpieces as he loved seeing the azaleas in my mom’s gardens in full bloom the most as it reminded him of the Masters Tournament at Augusta. We played the playlist he had created for his 60th Birthday Party just a few months prior, as it was the perfect playlist for a good time. We served German Chocolate Cake as that was his favorite. Friends, family and his colleagues spoke about the impact he had on their lives and the community around him. You see his community was everything and he too had touched so many.
My family and I are forever grateful to all of those who helped us pull off his Celebration of Life.
As we continue to await the exact guidelines for the entry back into events our mind continues to fall back on many of our most intimate weddings and events. Since 2006 we have worked with clients planning and designing their event from five to fifty guests. While these events may be small in size they are far from lacking in details. Truly some of the most heartfelt, beautiful and unforgettable celebrations we’ve been a part of. In the next few weeks we will continue to highlight some of our most memorable intimate weddings and events as no celebration is too small!
An Awakening of Spring at JM Cellars
Inspired by the awakening of spring, we teamed up with Gather Design Company to design this intimate wedding at JM Cellars. Using the soft, delicate bounty of spring, set against the masculine setting at JM Cellars, we were inspired by the soft and bright spring tones and textures. Incorporating the spring colors of mustard, pale yellows, soft peaches and a faint pink it was a new beginning, the start of a love story for the ages. Blooming branches, fluffy ranunculus and a few clean-lined anthurium set the tone for the inspiration. The flowers were layed on top of luxe velvet linens from La Tavola and carefully chosen rental items. The bridal gown, both clean and modern, but also romantic, made this one magical shoot all captured by Blue Rose Photography.
Pink Blossom Events designed this Four Course Dinner in collaboration with The One Eighty Foundation. Decor highlights included a centerpiece of cut footballs holding wheat grass on the main dining table and an acrylic football appetizer display!
We love a glamorous birthday party and this birthday party we planned for Rich and Reena last spring hits the mark! Reena reached out to us two weeks before the date and requested a nice brunch birthday party for her and her husband who would be celebrating birthdays just days apart! With brunch on the menu we set out to make it a celebration to remember! From a bubbly bar to a lavish brunch display and the most gorgeous peony arrangements Rich and Reena’s birthday party was a dream! Photos by Katie Parra Photography.
