Happy 1st Anniversary to SED!

January 17th, 2011 in year in review
Happy 1st Anniversary!

Our first year over here at SED has been an absolutely phenomenal one. A year that I could have never have imagined!  It has been a journey of learning and loving.  I’m so excited for what this year will bring!  I thought I would put together a little recap of our first year at Sparkling Events & Designs, LLC.  

*   Created and launched our website and blog!  

*  Joined Facebook and Twitter!  As of 1/15/11 – I had 1,134 fans on FB! 

*   Completed numerous stationery for weddings, graduations, showers (baby and bridal). 
*  Planned several parties, events and weddings… (3 birthday parties, 1 charity event, and 2 weddings) 

*  Featured on several prominent blogs:
  – One Lovely Day – Project Wedding 
 – Pizzazzerie – Pink Diamond Party
  – Kate Landers Events – Stylish Children’s Parties (once, twice), 
  – Catch My Party (3 times) 
  – Project Nursery – Alice in Wonderland

*  Joined Bridal Tweet, Dreamers into Doer’s and the fabulous Children’s Party Network!  

* HAD FUN!!!  This has been one of the most challenging and rewarding years of my life!  Having two small children (a newborn when I launched), I could have never imagined how rewarding this would be.  I feel so wonderfully balanced that I am able to truly to be doing exactly what I have dreamed of for so long.  

So enough words…. let’s see some pictures!
