Pittsburgh Event Planner | DAC2's 30th Birthday Party

When your older brother turns the Big 3-0, it's only right to throw him the most amazing birthday party anyone has ever seen! That is exactly what Helen + Annie did for their brother Dennis + the fact it was held in their hometown of Fox Chapel at the Pittsburgh Field Club made it that much more special! Guests entered the party through a draped hallway that featured a mega-sized portrait of Dennis. Once inside the ballroom, guests were greeted with a custom dance-floor, bar + an elevated lounge that featured three more mega portraits of Dennis that just so happened to change color throughout the night. Speaking of changing color, to spice things up for the guests + to create an element of surprise, the entire room's uplighting was programmed to change every hour, starting with green, then amber, blue, red + finally a bright white. {SHE} made sure that no detail was forgotten with custom drink stirrers, napkins, + who could miss the larger than life 3-0 framing one of the ballroom's walls! The icing on the cake was quite literally the icing on the custom cake depicting the history of Dennis's life! It was a party to remember + {SHE} can't send enough thanks to all of our vendor friends who helped make it happen!

Pittsburgh Event Planner | Sofia's 3rd Birthday Party

Sofia's 3rd Birthday was a PAW-ty! The Paw Patrol took over Urban Air Trampoline Park for Sofia's big day + Skye from the Paw Patrol dog squad made a special guest appearance. With the help of MissElaineous Balloons, Skye was able to fly in on her jetpack + soar over Sofia's fabulous dessert table. The {SHE} team made sure no small detail was forgotten at this PAW-ty. Each of Sofia's guests got to eat like a dog for a day using either a hot pink or blue dog bowl + then drink out of a white dog bone. The dessert table was filled with custom PAW-ty teats from our favorite bakery, Bella Christie + Little Z's Sweet Boutique. From the tennis ball cake pops to the brightly colored dog paw print cookies, no guest left hungry. Thank you to Studio Hayes Photography for capturing all of the gorgeous photos below.
