My journey guiding people on what items to purchase for their DIY party at home. My mission is to help one person at a time to celebrate the important events in their life by creating beautiful memories.

  • News about our let’s Celebrate Movement

    Hello hello hello, very excited to share with you my readers, or maybe with myself.

    I consider this blog to be my journal as an entrepreneur,  my goals, my ideas my space in the world. Hope to one day look back and enjoy reading to myself my own thoughts.

    So sharing here today a movement that a created on my Instagram.   A few weeks ago I was listing to a room in ClubHouse and i hear this story that touched me very deeply.

    Trying to make it short, she was sharing her story. Growing up poor, how she used to spend her Saturdays with her mom and brothers at some kind of “church sales group”

    So she used to sit under the table and read the books that were for sale to collect for donations, and sometimes the people would give her the candies that were for sale.

    On this particular day, she was so hungry, so hungry, that the whole walk there, she was praying to God for food, she was a child. She was there all day when they left and went home, at the end of the afternoon, by her surprise, her godmother who has just moved back into town passed by and left them an envelope with money. So basically her prayer was answered.

    I was in tears, Tania Sanches story touched enough to make me stand up and add something more for my battle. Since the pandemic, I been guiding and teaching women about the importance of celebrating, and sharing my knowledge as party designer.   Hoping to help mother’s to continue celebrating at home.

    However now I created a movement on my Instagram,  “A CAKE CHALLENGE”, I shared with my followers the idea of purchasing a cake and passing forward to a stranger, to push people in these hard times to do the same, celebrate!

    Here is my embarrassing moment crying live lol

    But seriously, have you ever thought about how lucky we are? My kids have clothes, food, and a roof to call home!  A kid that prays for food, to have a cake is luxury! So maybe next time, just look around and surprise a child with a cupcake!

  • More and more Videos

    Yep, I do about two lives per week and I am very proud of it.

    I don’t come here and share every week, but at least once a month I am here to share what’s going on and remind you. If you are as passionate as I am about celebrating and creating a dessert table as a focal point of your party, stop by grab a  paper and pen and take notes… here is a short version

     

  • Don’t sign a contract before you make sure you really like the services

    The contract is really a big deal in the party world, you always want a contract a proposal or a recipe. However, before you sign anything make your list and make sure after all the odds that the person, services, or place are the ONE for you.

    A little confusing? let me see if I can make it simple by giving you examples. Well,  one time I had a client that lost her deposit of the location that she wanted her party to take place and decided that she would rather lose the deposit but have the wedding the way she dreamed of.  In this particular case, they did not allow her to have for example a dessert table with outside desserts. She was a Brazilian and very passionate about her culture and love for dessert table.

    This is just one example that happens a lot also with “decorators” make sure before signing you see their work, that you like what they have created not something from Pinterest. There is a big difference between the work someone has done and pinning someone else work. Always ask to see their portfolio and not just inspirations.

  • Symmetry is a big thing when creating a Dessert Table

    YES if you are planning a dessert table, believe it or not, you need to know about symmetry. You need to understand if you like everything to be perfectly symmetric or not, and if the answer is yes how deep in the rabbit hole are you paranoid with symmetry.

    For example, throughout the years, I had clients that every single item and tray had to be identical the same on each side of the table, some not as crazy but pretty close to an identical visual impact.

    If you are the type of person that prefers everything symmetric is not a big deal, however, you need to communicate that.  Because is a very important factor, it’s an inevitable detail that can not and be not be forgotten if you want to be happy with the final result.

    Imagine if you don’t mention to your decorator that you like symmetry, now you get into the party, after spending X amount of money creating this beautiful dessert table and you get there and can’t get past the fact that the table is not symmetric? Not a happy feeling, right?

    So make sure you tell your decorator or as an event planner, make sure to ask your client. I did a live a few weeks ago on my Instagram and I have a few different tables as examples,  so take a look at it, and if you have questions just leave a message.
