As an event planner I love finding out about different party concepts and elements. As an avid viewer of the Real Housewives of Atlanta, (actually I have watched all of the them since the beginning with the OC Housewives franchise) Phaedra had a sip and see to celebrate the birth of her new-born son. That started a lot flurry of questions about what a “Sip and See” was and even the validity of it. I googled it and found that it is a very common tradition in the South. I like the idea , people always want to see the baby and I think it’s a great idea to have a gathering to celebrate the new-born and the family.
The “Sip & See” is exactly that, you come have drinks /appetizers and see the new-born baby. It is generally held about a month after the baby’s birth in an open house format. Gifts are at the discretion of those attending.
Although this is a Southern tradition I have a feeling that we will start seeing and hearing more about “Sip and See’s”. Any reason to celebrate! And I LOVE IT!

These cake tables need no commentating, enjoy the pics to get inspiration for your cake table decoration.
Yesterday, I commented on a cake table that was just BAD, today I have commented on a good table, and tommorow I will have pics of great cake tables. Whoever designed this table was really trying to make an effort, but it’s just a little too much of the same thing which makes it very boring. Upon first glance I would think, “ oh pretty flowers”, but if this is the cake table, then the cake needs to be the highlight in my opinion.
This is what I would have done different. They needed a higher cake or lower floral centerpieces, and then lose the books, they look out-of-place on this table. With the cake being white I would have went with a colored table cover, and then spread the roses out better and get rid of those vessels with words on them. The smaller candle holders should have been in color also. One other thing I would have added a colorful backdrop to frame out the table. This table had potential but the planner got too carried away and lost focus on what is most important on a cake table the cake.
We have all been to parties and weddings where the cake table is on a huge table, surrounded by nothing else. I always wonder did they run out of money,or did they just not give enough thought to decorating the cake table. I have identified 3 tables in my opinion of the worst, good , and the absolute best look, for a cake table decoration. On todays post we are going to look at the worst with my comments. Tomorrow I will comment on the good. So stay tuned!
Blah, Blah, Blah……I just don’t understand. There is an attempt to do something creative by having the two tone table cover, and the table is in proportion to the cake. This is what I would do to improve on this cake table. First, I would pin-up the black table-cloth and add some red beads where the pin-up shows on the white tablecloth. Second I would add a few red roses in small silver vases. Third have a crystal picture frame of the guests of honor. And last I would have either red rose petals of red gems on the table top. There are so many other options, they could have added a red wine bucket, cake/knife server set, candles, they could have added a red ribbon to the sides of the cake, or added more flowers to the cake and then add a red cake topper, the decoration options are limitless.
Full chair covers with a ribbon tie bow are quickly looking very dated as a modern style of chair covers takes over very quickly. With the right type of chair and right covering a room can be transformed more elegantly and modern than with traditional chair covers. Check out some pics of new chair decorations from basic to high end , but both make a grand, modern, new statement.
I while back I posted an article about hosting a swap party. I though it was an excellent idea for many reasons; 1. Shopping, 2. New Cloths 3. Low Price and 4. the Eco-Green element. I never got around to planning my party but I will be attending the Swapnista Fashion Swap Party January 22nd, 2011, it will be a fun filled afternoon shopping, drinks, appetizers, beauty service all for $15 per ticket, 2 for $20 and for a great cause Operation Prom to help young girls with a formal for prom and other formal events.

See you there!
I moved here to Atlanta from metro Chicago where we did not have Chick fil A. One morning a co-worker came in with chicken minis for breakfast. I was thinking who eats chicken in the morning? Clearly thats a southern thang! lol, and I have to say I have been forever HOOKED!
Chick fil is adding a new menu item to their line-up and is giving customers an opportunity to try it on them. You will need to make a reservation at their website and take the print out to the restaurant on the day and time you reserve.
I wish this was around when my son was young, he loves video games and this would have been the perfect party idea for him. Games on the Spot brings their service to you. It’s a Mobile Game Theater that features a state-of-the-art sound system and lighting, allowing up to 20 players to play simultaneously. They have all the name brand gaming systems and even have a certified game coach to assist players. How cool is that?!!!!!! Contact them @http://www.gamesonthespot.com or call them @1-888-405-4687.
