BEACH BASH -- Party at Home

We did this FAB Surf Shack/ Beach party about a month ago in a clients mom's backyard.  Grannie was the hostess with the mostess when Reeve and Xander celebrated their first birthday!  If I were a mom of one year old twins I doubt I'd have a party at MY house either... (Grannie to the rescue!!)  It was a lovely backyard that we helped make even more beautiful with all of out at home party goodies! As usual, we kept things bold, bright and modern -- keeping with an orange, blue and apple green color scheme.   We did a beautiful treat table (the amazing Julie at blue cupcakes never lets us down....) with cake cupcakes, cake balls, rice krispie treats on sticks, nutter butter flip flops (how cute are those!!!), some color coordinated candies and goldfish in a goldfish shaped glass bowl, naturally!  Fresh flowers galore and a really cool inflatable surfboard backdrop to really anchor the whole area.  It really looked so darling.  This is the first party at home that we used the smaller scale tables with the toddler sized chairs for the kids to sit and eat -- and I think it looked great.  The goodie bags were filled with sand pails and assorted sand toys, an inflatable beach ball, cool shades and a beach ball shaped sippy cup.  WE filled the side yard with varying sized beach balls for the kids to play -- and we also arranged for a bubble show.  Beachy fun for everyone!  Mom said that all her guests said it was the most gorgeous one year old's party they had ever been to... we LOVE to hear that!


Ahhh--- The Midsummer Knights Dreamy party.... a FAVORITE here at the COOP.  This is a great one because it's so beautiful and girlie -- but the boys get Knight costumes and swords so they are just as THRILLED with it as the beautiful girls with their fairy get ups (tutus, ribbon head garland and fairy wings).  We have posted pics of these parties before -- but we had a great photog shoot one recently so I decided to share.  I love the fresh flowers added to this one... so pretty.  Fresh flowers are always available as an add on at the COOP -- we think they really add a beautiful touch to all parties (even boys parties!!)

This party was soooooo fun!!!!!  EVERYONE -- adults and kids alike ADORED the fun and frivolity of sticky mustaches, fedoras, boas and photo booth props!  It was just a blast.  I hand painted the chevron stripe runners which turned out great for this graphic bold party look.  I also made the centerpieces out of Elephant and Zebra masks from Michael's that I jazzed up with mustaches and hand made chevron hats to match the theme (I love how the zebra's ear is peeking out of his cockeyed hat!!) It was such a fun afternoon with such a fun group of people -- hope you enjoy the pics!!!

UNICORN PARTY -- COOP Party at Home!

This is a beautiful COOP Party at Home we just did for one of our fabulous COOP customers -- who, after doing her last 2 parties at the COOP -- opted to have us bring the COOP to her home for her daughters party this year.  We did a beautiful Unicorn Party in her beautiful backyard (check out that amazing view!!!) and they were absolutely THRILLED with how it turned out!  Hand made maribou maned Unicorns... absolutely!  Gorgeous cake and cupcakes from Julie at Blue Cupcake,... you bet!!!  Beautiful peonies scattered about -- you know it!!!  WE even hand made a unicorn horn for the GORGEOUS stone bench they have outside their front door!  It was simply spectacular....


Another one of our COOP customers was taking 20 of her little guy's closest friends to see MONSTERS U for his birthday this weekend... and she wanted us to provide goodie bags to hand out at the end of the movie.  So a MONSTERS U COOP CRATE was made!! -- just goodie bags for this one.  LOVE the Mike eyeball on the boy bags!  Boys goodies were Mike themed... they all got a MONSTERS U Mike hat, bracelet, green cape, inflatable monster, gooey monster slime and a hand made Monsters University ID badge.  The girls bags were Sully themed... they all got turquoise tutus with purple boas (like Sully's spots), a Sully paper cone hat, and the same inflatable monsters, and slime as the boys.  Girls got Sully Monsters U ID badges on lanyards.  So so cute.  Love how bold and graphic the bags looked!  Tres COOP-e!!!

Bowling Party COOP CRATE

We just did this COOP CRATE for a local COOP mom who was doing a party at our local Bowling alley.  She wanted to bring a little CHIC COOP STYLE to the joint -- so she asked us to do a Custom COOP Crate for her.  We love how it turned out!  We are especially proud of thecustom banner we hand made!  It turned out so so cute!

WOW!  We are in full on SUPERHERO swing here at the COOP!  First we had two of our super dooper celebrity clients choose to do superhero parties COOP and CABOODLE-style... then our backyard bash (the PARTY at HOME).. and now THIS!  Another CRATE went out today... this one is a SUPERHERO themed basic crate.  The basic crate is just the goodie bags and their fabulous contents (superhero cape, laser fingers and a superhero mask)... but -- they are, after all, the same super cool COOP Superhero goodie bags that Charlize Theron and Nicole Ritchie got for their special birthday boys!  We will  send YOUR superhero the same cool goodies if you go to our website and order a SUPERHERO CRATE today!


We shipped out this COOP CRATE to a lucky little lady in the Lone Star state today!  Mom ordered a COOP CLASSIC CRATE for her daughter's PRINCESS party next weekend.  The Classic Crate includes the hand made goodie bags (with glitter crowns and pink ribbons!), a birthday banner, vintage paper straws (pink stripes, of course) and the goodies for all the party go-ers.  The party princesses will all be twirlin' in Texas with their beautiful tutus, sequin tiaras and glitter princess star wands -- all  courtesy of the COOP -- and one savvy mom who knew that the BEST thing to have in your party arsenal is a COOP CRATE, so you can party like a COOP STAR no matter where you are!


No availability at the COOP on the day you want to party?  Got an amazing backyard you want to party in?  Or a park?  Or the beach?  You name the place and now the COOP will come to YOU!  We will send our darling COOP-ettes out to your desired location and they will set up and help host a fabulous cool COOP style soiree wherever you like!!  Theses are some pics of a SUPER fun SUPERHERO party we did in a backyard in the Hollywood Hills recently.  Giant balloons and disco balls floating in the pool?

I know we have a plethora of super fabulous Superhero party pics from Lucinda's previous post.... but I just HAD to share a few more of my favs from one I did recently.  The amazing and gorgeous Charlize Theron chose the COOP to host her little boy Jackson's first birthday.   We did it on a Tuesday - which was his actual birthday - making it all the more special and we were really thrilled to pull out all the stops fo rthis special little guy and his wonderful mom.   I made a super amazing birthday banner JUST for Jackson out of dotted wrapping paper (cut into triangles as the flags) and comic books (the letters) -- it turned out so so great!  I really love it and have used it many times since!!! Charlize was so so lovely -- and I can honestly say she was one of the warmest, happiest mommies I have ever seen. She was just THRILLED with the party, and the COOP, and the special day we helped make just for her little guy. The COOP was filled  that day with lots of wonderful friends and family who all had a BLAST celebrating Jackson's big day -- superhero style!!!
