Wahoo, Get Hitched Give Hope Results!

Uh, what a night! What an event! What a success!! Get Hitched Give Hope 2010 surpassed our expectations beyond belief! We had a goal to raise $50K for Making Memories Foundation and guess how much we raised?? Wait for it...wait for it....$64,000!!!!! Hi Cloud Nine, it is SO nice to meet you!

If you weren't there...well, sorry, but you missed out! 500 brides, grooms and wedding community members made their way into the glamorous Four Seasons last Thursday and gave to a great cause while getting great deals! I won 50 glassybabys for my own wedding, aaah yeah!

So check out some super rad photos from La Vie Photography of the event and the team that put it together!

Cute Little Pumpkin!

Trick, Treat or a Baby Shower for little Olivia Gai?! How about all three! Throwing a baby shower for Clutch Associate Sarah Gai on Halloween was SO much fun! We chose an appropriate theme for the holiday and the event, "Cute Little Pumpkin", awwww! And used fun colors for the season and the gender, a soon to be little girl - purple, orange and black.

We incorporated orange and white mini pumpkins throughout the living room and dining room. And to the right in the below picture are festive bat/malt ball favors for the lovely ladies to take home with them.
What would Halloween be without yummy treats!? We did witches brew mimosas made with prosecco with a oh too perfect orange label and straight up OJ for the expecting mommies. Dishes like a cheesy strata and a chicken, spinach, mandarin orange salad were a perfect combo for a late brunch. Especially when you top it all off with a peanut butter cupcake for dessert!
As a take home for Sarah and a cute touch of decor we hung onesies on clothespins in each of the windows in white, purple and orange. It is a baby shower...we have to get a little corny right? The chair says 'Mummy To Be'...bwah haha!
A fun game that got everyone involved was to bring a picture of themselves as a child dressed up on Halloween and Sarah had to match them to everyone's name - super cute and a fun blast from the past!
Sarah and I!! No, we didn't plan our fall green outfits:) And your heart out Martha Stewart, I quilted it myself!
And because Sarah is the most prepared person with a thank you I had to showcase her shower gift. How cute is that stork? She drew and colored it herself....ah, love her!!

I'm so happy you had a great shower Sarah and I can't wait to meet Little Olivia!!
