Dannah's 18th Birthday: Moulin Rouge meets Monté Carlo

We recently had the opportunity to dig our itchy hands into the making of a spectacular 18th birthday party for a sweet young lady. In our culture, 18th birthdays are as big a deal as 21st birthdays (perhaps even more)... We didn't only get to make her cupcake tower, we also got to have fun doing crafty stuff and it was beautiful to see it all come together.
Exhausting... but exciting!

Part 1: The stationery by Milbreé moments (pictured here with cupcake samples):

Part 2: The Cupcake Tower... 
... the cupcakes:

... and now: THE cupcake tower assembled on our very versatile cupcake stand:

 Part 3: Party décor and styling by Milbreé Moments:
 The glittery heart backdrop was hand-made by... us :)
Rentals from: First Scene and Centrepieces
  We had the idea of contracting a pro dance group for a special item during the party. 
The birthday girl's mom tried with all her might, 
but they all seemed pretty exclusive and elusive... 
so in true "CAN-CAN-do" spirit, Dannah's friends showed such graciousness 
and agreed to dress up as her can-can girls 
and gave a surprise dance number for her gustes:

 ... all three girls are wearing fascinators handmade by... us :)
(thanks to Dannah's mom for sharing the photo above)

We even got to be invited as guests - such fun!!!
Thank you, Dannah, for joining us in this sugary-sweet journey!
