Yippee again for Friday! I have had one busy week and am excited for the weekend. Yesterday, for work Cloud 9 were one of 8 wedding planning vendors at the Anna Be 5 Year Event. It was such a great event and fabulous. The theme of the event was 1920s glamorous. The whole event was so amazing to see all the wonderful ideas of all the planners, florists, design companies. Everyone that came to the event was dressed in 20s glam! Lots of feathers, fringe, and lace! Loved it!
We planned our booth for months and we were absolutely in love with it. Our booth color was silver, so we went full on glam!! White furniture, with sparkling silver table cloths and mirrored furniture, a fur rug and to top it all off a gorgeous chandelier. The chandelier took 3 hours to put together and it was phenomenal! All of us had such a wonderful time and so fun to see soon to be brides! Here is our gorgeous chandelier from LMD productions! Isn’t it beautiful?!?

Right now, I have become totally obsessed with finding circus themed items. Well, we all know that is because I am doing this circus shower this coming Sunday. I am super stoked, but super nervous because it is my first big event by myself that I am the person in charge and the contact person. I get chills just thinking about it! Not to be conceited or anything, but I am so awesome, I get it all done. Is it bad to call yourself awesome because I really am awesome if you are wondering?!? So anyways I thought I would show you some cool items I found. We aren’t actually using them at our circus themed shower, but you sure could. Can anyone guess where I found these items?!? If you guessed Etsy, you are so right. So here are some of the cool new finds for a circus themed party!!!!
First, Circus straws from DimeStoreBuddy. I can just imagine, a bunch of glass coke bottles in a wooden crate with these straws sticking out. How cute would that be?!?
Next up from craftypagan, awesome tags for jars. For part of the dessert bar, fill jars with your favorite circus snacks, like gum balls, popcorn, peanuts, etc. Have a heck of a time!
Finally, send your guest home with a box of the best animal crackers EVER and a cute tag from TheGreenGrassGrows!!! I have decided this recently, that Barnum’s Animals are the best. The one’s you buy at Costco are fine and the one’s you buy where every else that are smooth and the elephant is super weird looking are okay. But Barnum’s are the best!! I have been eating them a lot lately! I look forward to them. My grams used to give them to us when we were little so maybe it is a little of me thinking of her when I eat them.
Sorry to sidetrack, but I have strong opinions about my food options. However, send your guest home with the animal crackers and the cute little thank yous with a personalized message and circus themed! Love it!!
So that is all for now, but don’t worry I will be back with more circus this week. I am thinking this is going to be a circus kind of week and look forward to seeing my pennant flags! I learned it is not pendant flags, but pennant flags. Let’s just say that is a whole other story so we’ll save that for another day! Happy Tuesday!
Lately I have not been showing you all the goods that can be found on the internet. So I thought I would now today take the time and show you another awesome gift idea for a wedding or even a birthday. The shop is called NanLawson. Kara found it awhile ago and actually has one of her husband Chris and herself. This lady is amazing. She has ones you can just buy or you can convo her and send a picture and she will make one of you and your hubby or boyfriend, or girlfriend or whatever! They are amazing!!! I suggest you check out NanLawson and here are a few of my favs!!!!
How cute is this couple?!? I love it! This is the kind of thing that Kara has in her house of her and her hubby! Mine is the Heart that You Call Home.
This one is so cute for spring! It just makes me happy looking at it and awaiting the warmer months. Sailor Girl
Harry Potter!!! What else is there to say, except that Harry is the best EVER!!! I just had to put this one in because I love Harry Potter and let’s just say I am waiting for July 15th to get here!!! The Boy Who Lived
More Harry Potter!!! I think I might actually have to go on and buy this one today!! It would totally look awesome in my room. Hogwarts Trio
