I just LOVE a party! Well, who doesn’t!? But over the past few years I have found an obsession of sorts with perusing party blogs and pinterest checking out all the creative things people have come up with in the party throwing department. I thought it would be fun idea to start featuring local parties and have a glimpse at what creative mamas are pulling together around Jacksonville.
There is no better place to start than with my first featured party. Wendy Updegraff is a party design extraordinaire (and really just a creative extraordinaire in general!) You may recognize her name from this blog. She is the fab photographer who took all the contributing bloggers headshots. She has an amazing eye and love for color in her photography. Check out her website to see some of her amazing work. Beyond her photography, her creativity when it comes to parties, crafting, interior design etc. is unreal!
For her daughter’s 9th Birthday, they decided on a Pumpkin County Fair! Wendy and her mom were responsible for all the GORGEOUS decor and kept it feminine and chic by sticking to a pink, orange and black color scheme. Her mother in law helped with the food and her handsome son acted as a carnie! I just love what a family affair her parties are!
