Flower shaped and polka dot balloons I found in Paris. I always check out grocery stores and party stores when we travel.
Last minute cake from Portillo's, the very best chocolate cake.
I made a candy dot runner for the table.
Deke was able to keep this under wraps for the few hours
we were scrambling to get this ready.
A very spontaneous surprise party lunch for Lulu's 15th birthday. Lulu's friend Rachel called me and graciously offered to have a surprise party for Lulu this week. I asked Rachel to round up some pals, and I would throw together the rest. It was fun not having the normal amount of planning time, I had to be more creative with the things I already had. It helps having a large supply of candy dots and candy necklaces on hand at all times! I have also discovered the beauty of having a helium tank ready to roll for just such an entertaining emergency.
