Jackson Design + Remodeling Holiday Party, Part II

On Sunday we did a sneak peek at an incredibly fun holiday party we designed and coordinated for an awesome San Diego company, Jackson Design + Remodeling. Here are the juicy details (and my very non-pro pics!):

We had so much fun planning the bash and even more fun watching the guests mingle, use the photo booth (with wacky props!) and get a private show from a magician! Even better; when the owner, Todd Jackson gave away those amazing gifts! Seriously - the entire event was a great success and a great part of our holiday season!

Our cookies!

We brought on some amazing hors d' oeuvres from the French Gourmet (yum!) - like prosciutto puffs, caramalized onion pastries, gourmet cheeses, mini Reuben sandwiches, bitesized turkey and cranberry sandwiches on little cornbread muffins, and many more goodies. Nick and I baked about 12 dozen pengiun and snowflake sugar cookies which are always a hit at our parties!

We created 9 oversized birch tree displays with the perfect wintry, sparkly ornaments and magical blue upligting. Lounge furniture was brough in my Concepts and frosted icy plates and other rentals were provided by Classic Party Rentals.

The showroom at Jackson Design + Remodeling is really incredible - I am in awe of their kitchens and baths on display, so we didn't want to cover anything. We wanted to showcase their great work so we clustered sparkly branches, vases brimming with blue and silver ornaments, and the birch arrangements and placed them around the showroom. We even had a family of oversized penguins and a polar bear on display!
Todd Jackson wanted a really fun and unique activity so Joel Ward, a really cool magician, was brought in from LA. He did some really out-of-this-world tricks (Nick and I are still debating on how he did what he did!) and kept the audience amazed. Check out his site below- you can see a clip he did on the Bonnie Hunt Show!
Each detail came together in a fun, cheery, and very wintry way! Thank you, Jackson Design + Remodeling, for bringing us on board!
Happy Holidays,

Love your design sense. You and Nick always make the scene elegant yet fun. It seems the Jackson Design & Remodeling team are 'with it' in teaming up with The Good Life.
