How To Plan a Party

The Girls With Glasses and Kate Spade can't take all the credit for our fabulous Altitude Summit party. We had a lot of help. These are the people who helped us look good.

Angela + Ithyle had a huge role in this party. From conception to the day of the event, they were by our side. They thought up the idea for this charming Coney Island Photo Booth and created all the pieces! Check out the video they put together below. They make delightful moving pictures along with still pictures; explore more on their youtube channel.)

For our adorable Coney Island inspired tickets, we used Jak Prints. Not only do they do these amazing vintage looking tickets, they also print stickers, and apparel. We were very impressed with them--cool company. If you are looking to build up your facebook fans or twitter followers we also recommend their new product, Favicards. Check it out.

Our gift bags were a huge hit. They included: cute faux glasses from us; Brooke White's High Hopes and Heartbreak; the amazing Tassi; some Kate Spade goodies and an Emergency Chocolate Bar.

Our tables were filled with beautiful Peonies by Jamie Bellessa, bubble gum balls in mason jars, and balloons.

We also featured adorable vintage cars, which can be bought at The Children's Shop at the Grand America Hotel. Ask for the fabulous Preston.

In the entry way, we had hundreds of balloons on the ceiling. Hanging from each balloon were charming black paper glasses. How did we make these iconic show stoppers? The Cricut, by Provo Craft, of course.
