Drew’s Surprise Birthday Party…

Dress: LoveShackFancy (also here and here)

I wanted to do something fun and special for Drew’s birthday last week so I threw him a surprise construction themed party! He has worked so hard on our home and has been doing an exceptional job making sure all the details are correct and falling into place, so I thought what better place to celebrate Drew than the home he has been working countless hours on for our family for over two years?!

I called the chef/owner of his favorite restaurant Oteo and asked if he could cater it. He told me it wouldn’t be the same if it was catered so he offered to come in and cook it right there in our home for us. This made the entire party in my opinion! We brought in grills and made a kitchen for him in our future pantry and he cooked the most incredible meal for our family.

Decoration Inc. did the greenery and lanterns, My Big Balloon did the balloons and Sweet Tooth Fairy made the most perfect cake (and my Rachel Parcell Team helped me make the signs!! haha).

It felt so surreal spending time in our new home and eating a home cooked meal there. It was such a special night celebrating my amazing husband and a night I’ll never forget!

  1. THis is such a sweet idea! In looking at your images I am wondering if your windows have any Low E coatings? We are replacing super old windows and i am thinking about getting ones with no uv coatings to keep the colors of the view true to real life. thx. cheers Jenn

  2. Do you guys own those tables and chairs or do you rent them? I have noticed you use them for many occasions and they are so beautiful!

  3. This is so so sweet! I teared up to be honest :P Can’t wait to see your future house by the way I am sure it’s going to look fabulous. <3
