Flash Back Friday! (My 35th Birthday Party)

For my 35th Birthday Party I decided to host myself a 70's theme party! There was so much to celebrate during that time I was turning 35 and we were days from the inauguration of President Barack Obama! It was most definitely a time to party!
I started off with an inspiration from a photoshoot I had did a while back...
The invites were nice and colorful to set the tone of the party
To cut down on lots of expenses I Hosted the party at my house and I created lots of elements to bring the 70's feel & party scene. I made cutouts of popular 70's shows and popular drinks and hung them around. I purchase the scene setter from Party city and hung it around the room. I had a disco ball in my party stash and I borrowed some lava lamps from my niece. DJ I POD was really had the party going with my 70's music play list I created. I made my own Step and repeat photo area. My food and drink was donated by a close friend of mine. We had a best costume contest in which I gave the winners mini tropies... Costumes were judge by the amount of applause for each contestant!
Since that time in 2009 I have learned so much and if I had to do again , I would add so much more custom decor to the party! Thanks to all the people that inspire me.... blog roll please..........

Happy Friday!

Feature Friday : The Special Occasion

Jade Ladson- owner of The Special Occasion

The Special Occasion is a full service event planning company that realizes events are massive undertakings that require special attention from start to finish. For the past 16 years, owner and Certified Event/Wedding Consultant, Jade Ladson has guided her clients through hours of careful planning and preparation that are necessary to achieve truly special events. The love of enticing colors, sleek design, and (most importantly) satisfied clients is a direct reflection of Jade’s personality. Our customers know that we will provide a consultant that they can put their trust in and feel confident in leaving the details to us. The Special Occasion provides custom party favors, invitation and note card personalization, atmospheric design, theme conception, custom silk floral arrangements, and an array of other services.

What do you enjoy most about planning events/weddings?

I love seeing the look of joy on my clients face as they realize that all of their dreams have unfolded and become everything they imagined.


What makes your company and/or services Special?

We are not a “Fly by Night Company”. I have been in the wedding/event industry for 16+ years and have sharpened my skills by seeking formal training. Many planners today have no formal training, they simply hosted a gathering at home that went well and suddenly jumped into planning. Throughout these years we have been able to foster and nurture various relationships with other vendors, allowing us special discounts which we pass on to our clients.

What are your future goals?

Next year I plan to obtain certification in event d├ęcor & design. While I can usually transform concept into reality with ease, I’d like to learn the ins & outs of design.

What 3 words would you use to describe you?

Professional, Creative, Reliable
