Today’s throwback Thursday is a fun backyard storybook soiree we had the pleasure to be a part of. I LOVE themed parties. I mean, weddings are great too, but you can only cut a cake so many ways. Themed events really get our team excited as we’re allowed to let the creativity flow and experiment a little bit more. This annual Oktoberfest party hosts about 200 guests at private residence and the theme this year was Storybook. Who has seen the show ‘Once Upon A Time?’ Yep, it was basically inspired off of that show! At this party, you’ll find all sorts of wonderful characters that pop out when you least expect it, a gorgeous invitation that was the perfect little storybook itself, and of course – all hosted by the Fairy Godmother herself.
So without further a-do, please join us as we go ‘down the rabbit hole’ through some whimsically fun event details!
Guests enjoyed the enchanted gardens while being shouted at by the ‘heckling tree’ and listening to tunes by Prophets and Outlaws. In attendance were some of the most magical characters including the White Rabbit, Abu and Aladdin, Alice, The Madhatter and Queen of Hearts. Of course, there was also a costume contest!
As an added treat: The Fairy Godmother composed a beautiful poem for this fun occasion!
Once upon a time in a land not so far away
there was a party held to celebrate All Hollow’s Eve Day!
Jack climbed up the beanstalk Rapunzel let down her long hair
Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf made plans to be there
The Witches and Warlocks started mixing their magic brews
Peter Pan and Wendy promised they would even fly through!
Alice and the Mad Hatter prepared a fabulous tea
And you’ll see by these photos it was quite the par-tee!

The entire Pop Parties team is the most organized, communicative, and on-it team I have encountered Their response time is unbelievable and made my entire wedding day stress-free. Not one detail was missed, and the wedding was the most beautiful and fun evening. They maintained professionalism, while also feeling like a close friend through the entire process. I could not recommend them enough.
