Happy New Year All...(as I blow a bit of dust off of my blog)!! I'm looking forward to what 2013 has in store for The Flair Factor, that I'll share with you on Fete Fanatic. Between the baby and business..I should have lots to share! In fact, just the other day I received an inquiry about my baby shower and realized that I never shared photos on my blog! First off, let me send a big THANK YOU to Chris over at Celebrations at Home and Baby Lifestyles for featuring my shower! Please enjoy the details and photos below!
The theme.. “Building our family one Block at a time". A celebration starts with the invitation, so I chose a modern style that gave my guests a peek at what to expect. Christine of The Olive Branch Papery executed my vision for the stationery perfectly!

The holidays are here! And pretty soon it will be time to set resolutions and goals for the New Year! Over the weekend I hosted a time management event to help everyone get their New Year off to a good start. Since its customary for The Flair Factor to end events of a sweet note, I decided to incorporated a simple treats table with holiday accents in keeping with a festive atmosphere. Take a look.

A few weekends ago, I was invited to create a sweets table for a local business owner who was hosting a spa party for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Floral designer Zakiya of Zakiya's Way wanted to do something special to honor her family and friends who survived breast cancer. Guests were treated to comfy plush slippers, spa products and massages. I was thrilled to be in the company of such beauty and strength. Thanks Zakiya for having us!!

I'm thinking about making these simple DIY cheesecake pops! I made these pops from store bought cheesecake for a dinner I hosted about two years ago. There were pumpking cheesecake (perfect for this time of year) and plain cheesecake pops covered in graham crackers and Oreo cookie... YUM!

I have so many things to catch you guys up on. The past few months has been consumed with family activities. From the birth of my daughter to
the passing of my beloved father, I have been surrounded with loved ones for support. The addition of our little lady attracted the family youngsters to constantly want to spend time at my house. So with summer coming to an unofficial end, and the kids back to school, I will have some time to update my blog.
During the summer I was asked to collaborate with Onida Cruz of Onida Cruz Weddings & Events
(Opulent Creations Events) to create simple party ideas. I knew it would be a blast to partner with Onida especially being new moms of precious little girls, with tons of ideas to share. We started with a pink and green (one of my all time favor color combos) Asian inspired design. The "Oh" (pun intended) so talented Olesha of Oh! Boudoir Photography took the photos for us.
Kids tables just their size were set with wooden chopsticks, takeout boxes to store their treats, and
fortune cookies acted as placecards. I simple cut out strips of paper and stuck it partially into the fortune cookie to be reveal the names. A bamboo plant set on top of a bamboo block placemat, moss balls, and cute kimono boxes anchored the table perfectly as the centerpiece.
