I had fun request to plan a chic Valentines Party. It was not only a pleasure meeting Neylan and her darling family, but the icing on the cake was getting the opportunity to plan a party in such a gorgeous home. Her beautiful contemporary home overlooks the Salt Lake City valley and has floor to ceiling windows -- such a breathtaking view and perfect setting for a party. She wanted to serve local chocolates and cheeses -- Voila! such a fabulous idea! Did I mention this was not a kid party? The focal points of the party were the italian soda station and the wandering magician that entertained the guests throughout the night. Oh yes! I almost forgot to mention the decadent honeycomb that my wonderful beekeeping neighbor let me purchase for the event - paired with blue cheese and blueberries = instant heaven. The only problem with this event was, I wish I could have a professional photographer follow me around all the time and take pictures (like a paparazzi) Good Photography is obviously not my forte and I am usually so busy trying to set up and in my creation "zone" that I rarely capture anything. For this event, I used my iphone and captured bits and pieces of the party beforehand, but I missed the LOVE arrangement on the fireplace, the fabulous front entry and how everything glowed with romantic candle light. The few pics I did end up taking in her home did not do it justice. But in the end, of course the success was hearing the rave reviews and that guests stayed long into the night -- C'etais magnifique!
