Effectively effectively effectively. Higher late than by no means, I at all times say. Really it’s fairly becoming that we’re nearly a 12 months thus far with regards to posting about Townes’ Sip & See. As you’ll see, it was very winter wonderland vibes, so actually, we’re simply in time for the vacation season. That is the proper put up for you for those who’re pondering of throwing any vacation or Christmas events. And for those who’re within the San Diego space, I extremely suggest working with any or the entire distributors who helped us pull this collectively. Let’s get on with it.
Michael & I (and the children and canine) spent the vacations in San Diego final 12 months and we determined to throw a bit of Sip & See vacation celebration for Townes- I imply, he’s the cutest little ham and I used to be so excited to introduce him to my closest mates & household. So, similar to Zaza’s Pineapple Soirée, I wish to break down each element for you, and right here they’re.
TIPS FOR THROWING A SIP & SEE:
♡ choose a theme.
For my part, for those who begin with a theme, issues come collectively a bit of simpler & find yourself being extra cohesive, lol – in fact. To be completely clear I flip flopped a bit of with this, it went from circus, to Whoville, to winter wonderland and ended up taking a bit from each class AND I LOVED IT. My imaginative and prescient was white, snowballs, first, puffy, clouds, with a pop of robin’s egg blue. Particular, however what else is new?
When you choose your theme, the invites are the proper option to give your friends a style of the celebration. Working with Cindy from Bliss & Bone once more was a no brainer. You guys know by now she has accomplished a lot for us: wedding ceremony invites, child bathe invites, Zaza’s delivery announcement, Zaza’s birthday invitations. She’s unimaginable. She’s so inventive, understands how necessary particulars are are ALWAYS crushes it.
We went with a pinstripe & gold invite and a very cool font that simply jogs my memory of the Nineteen Forties? Kinda? Anyway, as you’ll be able to see, it’s all concerning the particulars from the prime quality card inventory, the envelope liner and the wax seal. And sure, sure, solely I, Lauryn Bosstick, would put the flawed 12 months on my son’s celebration invites. What are you able to do? LOL.
Like I stated, the invite actually units the tone of the celebration and if you would like an elevated invitation Bliss & Bone is your reply. In addition they do evites & severely the entire state of affairs is so streamlined & simple. Can not suggest Cindy and her crew sufficient.
♡ decor that doubles as an exercise.
A few of the highlights of this celebration had been the interactive ‘stations’ that everybody might go to. So we had a scorching chocolate bar (however like, boozy for the adults), a gingerbread constructing station, and beignet station the place you possibly can organize them and watch them get made proper there. Evidently they had been past scrumptious.
These little stations are such a good suggestion as a result of it provides your friends one thing to do, and the children had SO MUCH FUN with it too.
♡ celebration favors
It’s at all times good to have a bit of one thing on your friends to take residence to recollect the occasion.
+ @tajacollection stylish, white snowflake candles:
Taja is the perfect firm to make use of for customized candles. I’ve them throughout my home, I like to offer them as presents, & for Zaza’s birthday we did a pineapple etched sq. base in form of a frosted white. For Townes we did a frosted white with snowflake etched on it. The scent was vanilla and to say its mouthwatering is an understatement.
All Taja candles are hand-poured with soy wax & no phthalates, parabens or artificial dyes. Been an enormous fan for years so I used to be so joyful to have these customized pineapple candles at Zaza’s celebration.
+ @beekeepers_naturals mind gasoline:
I take Beekeeper’s Naturals mind gasoline nearly each day. It’s like liquid adderall. Child events will be A LOT, so it was enjoyable to have Beekeeper’s merchandise for the adults. The founder has been on the podcast & let me simply say, the throat spray is like magic.

HUGE shout out to my mates Gillian and Mauricio who personal Wolfie’s Carousel Bar. They went above and past & had been so accommodating.

In the event you haven’t heard of Wolfie’s it’s actually an outdated carousel. In the event you’re within the San Diego space it’s a MUST. They’ve the perfect cocktails & meals and don’t get me began on the employees. They’re so good at their jobs & even dressed up like Whoville characters for the celebration. It was out of this world and tied the entire theme collectively from the second the friends walked within the door.
We selected a household fashion menu with seafood towers, pomme frites with garlic aioli (to die for), Waygu beef sliders, French toast & beignets. They even did a customized drink menu with the cleverest cocktails: La la Land, Zaza’s Toy Field, Townes in Toyland.
One other factor about Wolfie’s is that they labored so effectively with Encore Occasions to streamline every thing. Not one single element went previous Brittany and the Encore crew. From establishing the new chocolate bar, the signage, the place settings, deliveries- it was all streamlined by Encore.
♡ fairly leases.
Fancy Tables by Studio 22 supplied probably the most beautiful desk settings. They had been all white however the chargers & appy & major plates gave it this depth & texture. All of it slot in so seamlessly with the white balloons, white candles & white roses on the tables. The cutlery the supplied was additionally tremendous ornate & nearly regarded classic which was a pleasant pop since every thing else was all white.
They actually have so many choices to select from and I’d be joyful to work with them once more. Simply go stalk their IG & see for your self.
♡ celebration planner.
As I simply stated above, Encore Occasions did such an unimaginable job organizing every thing. They perceive the imaginative and prescient, they get the small print, they anticipate what’s wanted & this celebration wouldn’t have gone so easily with out Brittany and her crew.
The decor- my god. The candles, the fluffy puff issues, the balloons. Bish Occasions did this beautiful white balloon instalment on the ceiling. You guys. It was magical. Bish Occasions can be a go-to for me when doing any form of celebration. They’re really easy to work with and once more, I like working with individuals who perceive the significance of particulars. They put balloons throughout the carousel, hanging from the ceiling of every desk & made the entire vibe so on level. It actually felt like a winter wonderland.
♡ meals & drinks.
As I discussed, Wolfie’s took care of the meals & drinks and it was all scrumptious and so kid-friendly. We additionally ordered customized cookies from @littlesparkscookies. Jess is so gifted and made white & robin’s egg blue cookies with a carousel horse that match the theme of the celebration completely. She additionally did some white cloud cookies and everybody was obsessed- her cookies style so good.
Each celebration wants a cake so Tara at Tara Heather Cake Design made us a customized banana cake. It was so good and never too candy, it was completely good in each method. Tremendous easy with some white snowballs that resembled the balloon decor. Tara went above and past and created an additional egg-free cake as a result of our niece has an allergy. This one was gentle pink with the identical white balls on it & they each regarded so fab sitting on the dessert desk.
There you’ve got it. The celebration was a complete success and everybody had lots of enjoyable (I feel, mommy obtained a bit of tipsy). It meant a lot to us that everybody took the time & effort to return see Townes across the holidays, which everyone knows could be a batshit loopy time of 12 months.
