Party like a rock star!

For her 7th Birthday, my daughter Julia wanted a rock star-diva party. So I was up to the task to create the ultimate rock celebration for my little cupcake. We created these cute postcard invitations with Kodak Gallery. The Whimsical Cupcake Studio in Edmonton designed this gorgeous giant cupcake. The treat bags contained some chocolates, music pen with "I rock", bracelets, temporary tattoos, rock theme pencils and notepads.

I even decided to personalize the water bottles for the kids...They love to see their names in print, so the bottles were definitely a hit. Every child also had the opportunity to colour and decorate their own guitar (which I was able to find in Michaels). We even had our own photo booth - every little rock star posed with their decorated guitars or a microphone. We played lots of fun games and I think everybody enjoyed themselves. It was a little bit of work but there is nothing more rewarding than hearing at the end of the day those magical words: "Mommy, you are the best!"


Hello World!

Blogging is so new to me, but I wanted to give it a try. My name is Vania. I am a project manager in an advertising agency by profession but an event planner at heart. I was raised in Bulgaria but since 2003 live in Edmonton, Canada. I love fashion, food and interior design but most of all being a mom of my two beautiful children - Julia and Alexander. I always look for excuses to host fun themed parties for family and friends. I love all the little details that go into making a celebration something personal and whimsical – from the dazzling dress to the beautiful flowers and creative giveaways. Anyone who has ever planned an event knows the amount of time, effort and creativity that goes into making all the right choices about theme, d├ęcor, entertainment, and food. So I decided to start my own blog and share with all of you party ideas and great finds that will inspire the creative hostess in you. If you have any great party ideas worth sharing, please email me at, and I will be happy to feature them.

Well, let's start creating some fabulous parties, shall we?
