Balloons, Pizza & Ice Cream. Happy Birthday Ahna!

All work and no play has me wound a little too tight these days.  Hosting my dear friend Ahna O'Reilly's birthday party was a great chance to let my hair down, have a few (too many) drinks and hang with close friends.  I wanted the night to feel festive so balloons and confetti fit the bill.  When Greg asked me the plan, I informed him we were doing "balloons, pizza and ice cream."  He thought it sounded like a little kids birthday and thought a face painter sounded in theme.  While I didn't go that far, a youthful spirit was the goal.  In an effort to keep things simple, we had a brick oven pizza truck at the house so guests could select their toppings and have personal pies - super fun and who doesn't love pizza?  I made a couple of easy salads and let guests help themselves to drinks.  For dessert, Sweet Rose Creamery set up an ice cream sundae bar with amazing flavors: mint chip, carrot cake, cookies and cream & creme fraiche with elderberry, all delicious.  I paid for my evening of fun the next morning, but we all need those moments to let loose!!

Hi,

I am very happy to see your blog, very good article.

we offer our services to a variety of high-end clients and social affairs, including weddings, cocktail receptions,
gala dinners, black tie events and cosy family get together.

How can we use catering food closer to customers rather than making them more remote?

Dubai has always been a happening place for socializing and what better than then by ordering food from Epicure catering from the comfort of home .

Private catering is something that we specialize in mo event is too small for us .Our team come to you with the food.

Very adorable! This birthday party was heart throbbing. I loved the way you used balloons for decoration. This party décor is beyond my imagination. I always hosted parties at different venues in NYC as it’s quite hard for me to arrange these parties in home.
