    Garden Party Surprise

    What comes to mind when you think 21st birthday? Well this wasn’t just any 21st. We wanted something light, fresh and fun (without getting smashed). And there couldn’t have been a more perfect way to celebrate in a classy way then a 21st garden party surprise. And lucky for us our guest of honor’s birthday is a summer one so we had the perfect setting, a park!  It was a gorgeous day and a reminder that you don’t need something extravagant to have a great party.  While we waited for the girl of the hour, guests were invited to write notes to her. Teacups were set out along with prompts for…

    A June Wedding

    There is nothing that I love more than a June wedding. June 23, 2018 we celebrated the marriage of Bill and Linda.  The ceremony and reception took place at a country club in Barrington, IL. We were able to use their fireplace room which made for a gorgeous backdrop for the ceremony. We created a custom mantel design and partnered with our florist to finish our concept with beautiful pillars and arrangements.   With the brides love for color in mind we sat down with the florist and designed some bright and fun arrangements. This brought a lot more texture and variety to the room.  After the ceremony, cocktail hour took…

    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…

    Bunny Birthday!

    This past Saturday was our office manager Hazel Grace’s 1st birthday party! If you haven’t been introduced to Hazel yet here is a little bit about her and what she does at Alexandra Michele Events!  Hazel loves to help type on the computer and is our official flower sniffer. Hazel always brings her high energy into the office. Plus she’s nice to have around when the event stress comes knocking! I would definitely have to say that Hazel’s party was a hoppin’ success! There was no absence of bunny themed puns and activities for our guests. Everyone was invited to join Hazel and put on their bunny ears, eat some…

And as you all know it is not an Alexandra Michele event without a theme! And what could possibly be better for a 1st birthday than the muppet gang!  The house was transformed into a magical rainbow wonderland. There was definitely no absence of color or details at this party. From the decor to the food everything was there for a reason.  Another thing that you probably know about us by now is our love for puns. This party was no exception. Every menu item…

    Mother, like daughter

    Since I was a little girl my mother, Susan, has been planning extravagant parties. It has been something that I have grown to love because of her. Each party that she plans has a specific theme that every element revolves around. From decorations to games everything is planned with the theme in mind. Today I would like to share with you just a few of her events that were fabulously executed. One of the first parties that I remember her planning for me was my Blue’s Clues birthday party. At my birthday parties there were always activities to keep the children entertained. At this party we had to eat jello…
