Eloise at The Plaza Party

My daughter Madelyn has loved Eloise since she was 2 years old. She collects the dolls, books, and has ALWAYS asked for a party at The Plaza. Since it is such a special “number” birthday, for her 5th birthday, I decided to style a pink, black, and white Eloise themed soiree. I enlisted the help of [...]

French Stork Baby Shower

When it comes to throwing a fabulous baby shower, I prefer to focus on entertaining the mom-to-be, not the baby.  Let’s face it, it’s a rough nine months….she deserves a party!  So let the gifts be directed towards the baby, but cater the party details to a more mature audience!

Parties by WH Hostess: Sophia’s Wonderland

One of the many thrills of my job is seeing our creations come into play.  We recently worked with a California mom to create a custom suite of stationery, decorations and custom fabric for her daughter’s “very merry un-birthday tea party.” She wanted the party to be in true Alice in Wonderland-style, with whimsical touches throughout.

Parties by WH Hostess: Barnyard BBQ

When it comes to planning parties down South (Houstons) in November, there is nothing like hosting a birthday bbq outside (which we would KILL to do here in Chicago!), especially when it involves a petting zoo, horse rides and some pretty darling decorations!

We were thrilled to be asked to design a custom collection of party goods [...]
