{FEATURED} "UP" Birthday Party - LilSugar's Best in 2012

It such a great feeling to be ranked alongside other cute and creative birthday parties as one of the best.  Yup!!  Today, the editor of LilSugar came out with a list of the "Best of 2012:  The 15 Cutest, Most Creative Kids' Birthday Parties" and our very own "UP" inspired birthday Party made the list!!  It's even sweeter when you're ranked alongside Martha Stewart's granddaughter's first birthday party! Yes that's right!  MARTHA STEWART!!  Thanks again to Kate Stahl from LilSugar for recognition and thanks to the dream team for contributing your talents to make this party happen (Stephy G. Photography, inTrishting Creations, and Sweets by Honey).

From the words of Contributing Editor, Kate Stahl:

'Majell del Castillo designs absolutely beautiful events, but we were blown away (up, up, and away, that is) when we spotted the Up-inspired birthday bash she created. "We were mostly inspired by vintage details from the first 15 minutes of the movie," Majell says. "The props were mostly DIYprojects that were on the vintage side, from globes to grape soda and 'Ellie badges.'" But our favorite details have to be the balloon-inspired sweets, including an awesome house with macaron balloons and the cutest cupcakes around. Check out how Majell went above and beyond with this bash.'

Katherine's Mary Poppins Carousel (First Birthday) Party

I'm thrilled to share this amazing first birthday party I did this past July.  The Santa Monica Pier Carousel was the perfect venue for this Mary Poppins theme first birthday for little precious, Katherine.  The party was filled with lots of lovely details from the super cute custom cake topper to the penguin cake pops!  The kid guests enjoyed playing a game of "Pin the Bow Tie on the Penguin" and decorating their own "Banks" to hold their tuppence.  All of Katherine's guests enjoyed more than a spoonful of sugar and were able to take home their own silhouettes.  I'm sure Mary, Mr. Banks and his children would agree!
