A Very Pandol Christmas – Magical Monday

What a year it has been!

As 2016 has come to an end, we are able to reminisce about our past events!

Weddings, events, socials, baby showers, open houses… We love it all!

One of our last events of 2016 was the annual Pandol Christmas Open House!

Oh, how we love working so closely with Carolyn to plan her magical events. Carolyn and Jack let our creative freedom soar and this event proved to be no different!

Snow globes, a sneaky elf, and Mistletone magic were the hits of this party!

Carolyn finds the best ways to decorate for any occasion! The Pandol home is always warm and inviting, and dressed to the nines!

As guests arrived, they were greeted with heavy hors d’oeuvres and sent to the bar to select their beverage of choice.

Of course, there was also the hot coco bar for guests where they could spike their hot coco or coffee with cinnamon whiskey, Irish crème or caramel liquor.

These add-in options were just the beginning! Crushed peppermint, cholocate chips and butterscotch flavored-gingerbread shaped gummies were additional festive holiday treats!

It wouldn’t be a Fairy Godmother event if there weren’t a few surprises… The first of the night was the TapSnap photobooth with the ability to put the Pandol’s guests inside a snow globe! Now how cool is that?!

Another surprise, even for the Pandols, was that the Bakersfield Blend Chorus, a chapter of the Sweet Adelines. The chorus shared the traditional holidays tunes that we all know and love.

Live music was provided by The Mistletones.

Our dear friend Therese and her band of jingly geniuses made sure that every melody and tune were just right for the guests, and filled the Pandol home with holiday cheer!

So many little details go into making an event a true success.

Stirrer rods, napkins and of course holiday packages disguised as tables were necessities for this event.

Our little Elf had tons of fun at the Pandol Christmas Open House! From the hot coco bar, he made his way through the house and even took a turn at the keys!

Delicious treats by GhilaDolci Bakery and festively decorated cookies by The Cookie Monger were a hit of the party! “Elf on the Shelf” cookies went right along with the theme of sneaky elves throughout the Pandol home.

Paradise Balloon Design has mastered the tricks of the trade, and even got a few elves in on the fun!

Not only do these balloons resemble that of snow globes, but they also had multicolored changing lights inside! Now that’s cool!

Paper products created by Matinae Design Studio, and oh how we loved them!

Mischievous elf cutouts, naughty and nice lists, and the most perfect invitation were the best fit for this event!

As always, it is an absolute pleasure to be your Fairy Godmothers (and Godfather) Carolyn.

This party, just as all the rest, was a complete dream event and we are so glad that you, and your guests, enjoyed it!
