A Retro Themed Birthday Party!

Posted by Holly-Kate Foss

When Marisa Lown, of The Radical Cupcake, contacted me to help her coordinate her special birthday party…I said “of course, I would love to!”

I met Marisa last September, when I was helping Casey & Emily plan their wedding at Sodo Park. She created their wonderful organic cake and vegan cupcakes for their wedding day.

Marisa was planning a great birthday bash and I was thrilled to help her out! She knew, of course, that she wanted to serve wonderful dessert without having to make her own cake. We called Bakery Nouveau in West Seattle to help us out! We went to their cafe to taste so many wonderful french dessert options – she quickly decided on a dense chocolate cake, many individual cakes, chocolates, and parisian macaroons.
She has a tradition with her birthday celebrations to play Pool, so The Garage Billiards was the perfect location! She wanted to hold her private birthday party in The Echo Room.

Of course, what is a birthday without a professional photographer there to capture the important moments and celebration! We called Barbie Hull to help us take pictures of the party and important friends & family attending. Barbie is wonderful! We both met Barbie through an amazing non-profit called Get Hitched, Give Hope. We are all involved in this years Get Hitched, Give Hope and I cannot wait for our big night on October 28th, 2010.

Of course, what is a party without more sweets? Marisa wanted to host a candy bar and selected wonderful candy options from The Confectionery and created custom M&M’s to fill the candy bar.

Marisa is such a talented lady and I was so honored to be a part of her birthday celebration. I am really looking forward to working with her to help some of our amazing Sweet Pea Events couples celebrate their big day.

Here are some of the people that helped make Marisa’s Birthday a blast!
