A Modern Safari Birthday

Initially inspired by a very simple Martha Stewart elephant punch-out, born was a contemporary and tasteful safari birthday. The event was a testament to personalization and detail as Evan's mom oversaw the crafting of all the special embellishments... from the party hats to the hand-made favor bags... I almost feel compelled to list her as a vendor for her own party!
Event location was a photography studio that accounted for some great natural lighting... Hand-made floor cushions for a guest "seating" area...

The ever so popular station of sweets... actually needed to assign someone to guard until ready for service!

We had some celebrities in attendance! The Kogi Truck and Fry Girl both made appearances to appease their hungry fans!
