Celebrations: Joan’s Debut

I can’t believe I’ve forgotten to post about this! It’s been so long…but anyway, never late than never, right?

Remember this pre-debut photoshoot we did? Here’s the main party and how the sweet 18 came to be!

Colorful! Shiny beaded necklaces were given away as souvenirs for the Mardi Gras/Carnival themed debut.

Look at that cake! Just perfectly purple & green. And see that huge red chair? That’s Joan’s throne for the night!

Since the party was held in Fiamma Bar, seems fit to have cotton candy & mini pin-wheeled vodkas for everyone to munch & take home. To complete the carnival theme, mini fireworks adorned the cocktail tables while the ceilings were covered in festive christmas lights.

There you have it lovelies!

Joan’s Pre-Debut Shoot

Step right up! The festivities shall continue! Today is all about the pre-debut shoot for the debutante-to-be. Since the theme is mardi-gras/carnival, we head out to the Mall of Asia (MOA) for the entire day to get both morning & night shots.

Good thing, MOA has a carousel by the bay walk so the whole venue became our playground. Plus its free!

Wwe will be featuring our tandem photographers, of course!

DIY Carnival Invites

Happy Queen’s Day everyone! And a Happy Monday of course! This week it’s going to be about R&B’s projects for the first quarter of 2011. I haven’t really had the time to compile everything so having this Monday off is just perfect timing.

First off, we had the honor of hosting a Mardi Gras/Carnival-themed 18th birthday at Fiamma Bar last January. Remember this mood board I posted before? Well, we had put out these multicolored invites for all of her guests.

Pretty colors, don’t you think? The concept is somewhat like an enlarged admit one ticket.

The envelopes are like vintage popcorn bags. I wasn’t able to find the red & white stripes so I just settled for the white one. At least it shows off the color of the invite from the inside.

Here’s what you need to create these festive invites:

– Multicolored/Metallic boards
– Vellum paper (for the envelopes)
– Scissors/Paper cutter
– Printer
– Gold strings (for the tag)

Oh, how can I forget about the fonts! I chose mine from Magic Jelly’s collection of her favorites carnival fonts here. The best about it is some of them are free from DaFont.com. Enjoy!

More photos to come, so stay tuned this week!
