A Garden Themed Baby Shower Draws its Inspiration from the Colorful Gerber Daisy.
What better way to celebrate a new baby than with colorful fresh Gerber daisies? Using these happy flowers as inspiration, I designed this fresh, modern, hot pink and orange tablescape for a baby shower brunch. We used garden elements such as mini watering cans as place card holders and little tin garden lanterns to hold tea lights on the table. Fresh flowers were used to adorn the napkins that are fanned out from the water goblets. The gift table is dressed in hot pink and the packages are wrapped in bright colors. Bright pink and orange paper lanterns hang from the ceiling and cupcakes from Sugarplum Visions of Marietta are decorated with little flowers to coordinate with the theme.
Irish Beer & Fondue Party for St. Patrick’s Day
I must admit, I have never cared for the corned beef and cabbage central to a traditional St. Patty’s Day Meal. But, since I do love a good party, I found a more modern, and yummier, alternative –a St. Patty’s Day Beer & Fondue Party!
A color scheme of gold and green is used drawing inspiration from the Irish “Pot of Gold”. Fresh modern floral arrangements of bamboo reeds and white hydrangea are set in square vases from Beau-Coup.com. Simple gold charges and deep green linens are used on the table and places are marked with Shamrock place card holders from Daisy Days.
A Very Posh Backyard Carnival Party
Ahhh! Spring has sprung in Atlanta. The memories of the snow last week are fading with the sound of birds chirping, the sights of trees blossoming and the fun that comes with extended daylight hours. We are busy planning our first Spring Carnival of 2009 this sunny spring day. Here are some images from one of our favorite Carnival Parties for Cameron’s 5th Birthday where we had a huge inflatable train, a clown, popcorn and a full Mimosa Brunch for the parents. It was spectacular. Check it out:
Pirate Parties from Posh Tot Events
Since my two year old son is completely obsessed with Pirates lately, I spend a good part of my day talking in Pirate jargon. Makes me think of the amazing Pirate Party we threw for Cayden’s 5th Birthday last year. We had a real Pirate entertaining the kids, gold coin cupcakes a treasure hunt and a game of tug of war. Arghhhhhh! Too cute!
A Summer Beach Bash for Kids
I admit it, my blood has thinned. Since moving away from the cold weather back in ’99, I just can’t take much cold anymore. This has been a particularly cold snap here in Atlanta with an actual “snow storm” (3 whole inches!!! ). I find myself longing for spring and the fun outdoor events that begin in the next month or so. Here is a recap of a fun 5 year old’s Beach Bash themed birthday party put on by Posh Tot Events last summer. Hope this montage warms up your cold toes on this chilly morning! Enjoy.
Posh Candy Buffets
We have done quite a few candy buffets for our clients lately. What started as a wedding trend has made its way to the kids’ party scene. Each sweet buffet is catered to the theme of the party and contains candy in the color scheme of the event. We are offering our “Posh Candy Buffets” as a standalone service as well as add-ons to our client events. Weddings, birthdays, baby showers, whatever the occasion, you can’t go wrong with a buffet of sweets. Yummy!
Berts Big Adventure Send off party from Posh Tot Events
Posh Tot Events was honored last week to be a part of the Bert’s Big Adventure send off party. This amazing program developed by Bert Weiss and his wife Stacey Weiss from Atlanta’s Q100′s The Bert Show is a special trip designed to provide families a magical weekend at Walt Disney World. These families have children, aged 5 to 12, who are experiencing a chronic or terminal illness.
We worked with Bert’s Big Adventure to create a Red Carpet Send off Party for the children and their familes on the day of their departure to Disney World. It was a special day that was just a small prequel to what they were about to experience on their trip to the happiest place on earth. From a dress up booth with princess gowns and tiaras, pirate hats and swords and face painting, to a huge inflatable crawl, a photo booth , arts and craftts and a dozen Disney Characters roaming the room, there was never a dull moment on Thursday morning. The families began to arrive at 6:00 am and despite the hour, there was not a tired eye in site. The moms were treated to some special pampering all their own with blow outs, makeup and chair massages. All of the families were interviewed on air as the show was broadcasting live from the event. At the conclusion of the day, some beautiful monogrammed bags were presented to the families that were stocked with all the supplies they would need while traveling. It was a truly magical send off.
A special thanks to all of the contributions that made this Posh event possible:
Party City Buckhead for the amazing balloon bouquets and centerpieces
Wow Photo Booth for the fun and fabulous photo booth that had everyone saying “cheese”
Parties2Go for the cool inflatable and the carnival games and tents

With a beautiful blue and purple tablescape fit for a sea princess, and a cake inspired by Ariel herself, your little mermaid and her friends will love it!

A Spa Themed Birthday Party for Girls
Halle Jackson of Kennesaw invited her girlfriends over for a spa sleepover and makeup party with a twist. In addition to enjoying professional mani/pedis the girls got the privledge of attending a beauty workshop put on by Posh Tot Events. The girls listened intently as Courtney McCormick of Authentic Beauty discussed airbrushing in magazines and the true source of beauty – within. Next came a makeup lesson with birthday girl Halle as the model. The girls watched closely as Courtney explained proper makeup techniques and then each girl got the chance to get their own mini-makover.
All the while, the girls were taking turns getting their nails done. Once they were all dolled up, the feasted on a mexican nacho bar and relaxed at the beautifully appointed table.
After dinner they celebrated Halle’s birthday with a gorgeous spa themed cake. Each girl took home her choice of lipgloss from Authentic Beauty’s makeup line, monogrammed cosmetic bags and spa products. It was a birthday Halle and her friends will not soon forget! Click here to view more pictures.

We so many exciting things going on but the most exciting, in my opinion, is the launch of Posh Mom Events. We are working on taking all the great details that we have put into our Posh Tot parties and taking them to the moms. How many time have we had moms at our spa parties say “Do you do this for moms too”? Oh, about a hundred! So the hammer hitting us on the head finally worked. We have hired an amazing woman named Maryann Shuman to run Posh Mom Events Atlanta and we are so excited!
We will be creating several theme party packages geared towards moms that will be perfect for girl’s nights in, baby showers, birthdays or just because. Additionally, we will be building a community of local moms and giving them access to some of the coolest stuff going on in this great city. Think private shopping nights, exclusive preview shows and movie events and much more. Join Posh Moms Atlanta today and stay tuned for more details. The new packages will be up on our site soon so if you have an event coming up, want to make it posh and pass off the work to someone else – give us a call!

The fete ended up with over 100 guests 35 of which were children, 4 valets, 2 bartenders, 2 tents, a jumpy castle, a baseball character to play games with the kids, popcorn cart, hot dog bar, baseball themed cake and cupcakes galore. It was incredible!
The kids and parents had a ball and overall I think it was one of our best events ever. In spite of the size of the event, we provided the signature Posh touches such as personalized water bottles, favor tags and “All Access Game Day Passes” for the kids, welcome signage, matching personalized t-shirts for the birthday boy and his brother and even a matching bib for Hollis to wear as he attacked his “smash cake”.
And that was the endorsement that made all the work worthwhile. Listen to Bert and the gang talking about Hollis-PALOOZA on the air.
Trayce Hutchins from CBS “better mornings” came out to cover one of our parties last month. It was an Enchanted Garden Tea Party for 5 year old Emma Buker.

We have had several requests to do birthday parties for one-year-olds lately. As parties for one-year-olds are really more for the parents, than the children’s friends, we have begun including a personalized “Year in Review” montage with all of our one-year-old parties. With photos and song choice provided by the parents, we put together a beautiful memento to be shown at the party and to treasure for years to come. Here is an example:
On a chilly January day, 4 year old Carson invited her best gal pals over for a birthday celebration. The girls’ shared love of ballet was the inspiration for the party. Everything was bubble gum pink from the costume dress up booth to the cupcakes to the table settings. A kid sized ballet bar was set out for the girls and a beautiful assortment of tutus leotards, slippers and tiaras were made available for each girl to wear. When they were all dressed, they make their own wooden ballerina doll.
While they were working on their activity, something special happened. A real live ballerina showed up to give the girls a ballet lesson. The girls had a ball and were extremely attentive to her instruction. At the end of the lesson, each girl was introduced to the parents and presented with a pink rose. The moms were snapping photos left and right!
After a group photo with the ballerina, the girls sat down at the table for a lunch and the ballerina answered their questions while they ate. The party ended with the presentation of the ballerina cupcakes and a chorus of “Happy Birthday to Carson!” It was “Tutu “cute for words.
The unseasonably warm weather was replaced with a cold snap just in time for Ava’s holiday fairy party on Saturday. The magical day began with a special holiday performance of “A Chris Mess Carol” at Roswell’s Kudzu Playhouse. A completely engaging and interactive performance from the cast had the children laughing, dancing and shaking bells. We watched in anticipation as a very surley little girl named “Chris” learned the key to true hapiness: Love, Laughter and Sharing from the ensemble of fairies who visited her dreams.
At the play’s conclusion, the children congrugated in the party room which was festively decorated in a “Christmas Fairy” theme. A Make Your Own Treat Bag station greeted the children at the entrance and they each had their own pair of fairy wings to wear during the party. The table was set with minitaure Christmas trees decorated with colorful butterflies, theater masks and christmas balls. Favors for the girls included sequined headbands and strings of beads to match their wings.
A pizza party followed with snacks for the parents and the now famous “Mambo #5″ playing in the background. When it was time for cake, all eyes were fixed upon the creative masterpiece designed by Cakes by Lori of Atlanta – a 2-tiered fondont covered chocolate cake that perfectly matched the invitation.

A Royal Princess Tea Party
It was a magical day for 3 year old Maya on Saturday. To celebrate her birthday, Maya invited 9 of her girlfriends over for a “Royal Princess Tea Party“. And a royal affair it was! After decorating their own Princess Mirrors, the girls had a fantastic time getting dolled up in their gowns, shoes and tiaras to the tune “I Just Love Getting Dressed for Tea”. Once dressed, they put on a mini fashion show for the parents. Each princess was announced and emerged from behind a pink satin curtain to a round of applause and the Disney version on Mambo #5 . But the applause reached a crescendo as a beaming Princess Maya, dressed as Belle, was announced to “Happy Birthday Princess”. It was clear she was enjoying the festivities!
After a “Princess Processional” the girls sat down to “tea” (lemonade and tea sandwiches). The girls did a bit of dancing after lunch and then the Princess Purse Cupcakes arrived. An enthusiastic rendition of “Happy Birthday to You” was followed by the happy princesses eating their most delicious and beautiful cupcakes. The party wrapped up with the presentation of a beautiful pink satin rosebud purse and princess mirror lip gloss for each princess and one last dance to Mambo #5. All in all it was a day fit for a princess!
October 20th was a big day! We had Cameron’s 5th Birthday Carnival in the morning. The party was a huge success. It was one of our biggest events with a premium inflatable train, carnival games, a clown to paint faces and entertain and freshly popped popcorn for the children. The kids had a great time and the parents enjoyed a special “mimosa brunch” as they watched the little ones play.
After the Carnival wrapped up, it was back to my house to start Austin’s 1st birthday party. It was a big event with family and friends arriving from out of town and over 15 children and babies. We did a baseball theme for the party complete with a gourmet hotdog bar, popcorn, peanuts and baseball cupcakes. Everyone had a blast. The kids had their own area of the party with a dress up trunk, activity tables, reading nook, baseball favor bags and a baseball themed table. It was a great party!
The girls had a ball at Sailor’s Royal Princess Tea Party and we were lucky enough to have a professional photographer covering the event. Her work is amazing and I just know that our clients will want to use her to photograph their little ones in the future. I put together a slide show of the best shots.
The annual fall tradition at the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Scarecrows in the Garden, opens next Thursday.
