    Easter Brunch!

    As you could have guessed Easter is a very exciting time of year for Alexandra Michele Events. Not only because we have our very own Easter bunny but it is the beginning of spring events!  I would like to share some of our decor and menu inspiration for our Easter Brunch last Sunday.  Something that we strive for is repurposing elements from other events. Not only is this good for the environment but it also lets some of our favorite pieces get a second life. If you remember our Hazel Grace’s Birthday party we made a banner made of bunnies. We were able to use this as part of our…

    St. Patrick’s Day

    How LUCKY are we this year?? St. Patrick’s Day is on a Saturday this year and that means PARTIES! Even if you don’t have the honor of saying “Kiss me I’m Irish” you can still celebrate and enjoy all of the festivities and traditions.  St. Patrick’s Day is just another reason why Chicago is one of the greatest cities in the world. Who else is going to turn a river green to celebrate one day. Probably not even Ireland. Downtown Chicago is the place to be on St. Patrick’s Day and since it is on the weekend this year that makes it perfect for planning a party or an outing…

    Valentine Desserts!

You get to spend some quality time together and enjoy something that you both made!  So I have searched through Pinterest looking for the best of the best (and the yummiest) desserts! And some decorations too because they are too darn cute not to…

    Mickey Christmas

    It’s a Mickey Mouse Christmas come inside it’s fun inside! If you are familiar with Alexandra Michele Events, you know that we are crazy about our party themes. So that can only mean that when it comes to Christmas, our theme is decking all of the halls of our house. This year we planned for one of my favorite Christmas themes, Disney! If Christmas wasn’t already magical enough add the most magical and happiest place on Earth, means our house is practically drowning in Pixie Dust!

    “I boo”

    Before you walk down the aisle to say “I boo”, you’ll want to make sure you have all of the right elements to make your halloween wedding…bootacular.  We’ve all see the halloween themed weddings on TLC’s four weddings that are all too spooky and not in a good way. Halloween just like any theme has a fine line between classy and trashy. So we have collected some examples of halloween wedding tricks and treats.  Remember at the end of the day to keep things classy. While halloween is a scary holiday, you don’t want to scare your guests away. As long as you keep your decor elegant, your wedding will…
