Welcome to BB Events

We've confirmed a new passion. Since planning our own weddings, our interest in event planning has blossomed more than we imagined. We've always loved party planning - from holiday parties & bar-b-ques to birthdays, baby showers & reunions - pretty much any special occasion that involves bringing family & friends together and celebrating. Researching all the gorgeous party details (especially weddings) and brainstorming creative, budget-friendly ways to express the joys and emotions of each celebration is a confirmed passion of ours! Check out some of the brilliantly beautiful ways to celebrate in our blog. Feel free to comment & give us feedback!

Thanks for looking! And please contact us if you need ideas for your celebration! We are based out of the San Francisco-Bay Area in Northern California.

Beautifully yours,

Bridal Shower Tea Party - by BB Events

We had the perfect weather and the perfect setting at the bride-to-be's house for a brilliantly beautiful tea party! Highlighting her wedding colors blue and yellow, we transformed her back yard patio overlooking the lagoon into a charming tea house adorned with pompoms and rosettes. Her wedding will be in tropical Cancun, so we added some subtle tropical details in the plates (note: pineapples) and foods served. We filled the table with the bride-to-be's favorites (with the help of her bridesmaids and future mother-in-law), including a homemade vietnamese salad, dimsum and a variety of tea sandwiches. The desserts table was filled with a variety of cakes, mini scones, chocolate mousse cups, bite-sized tarts, coconut macaroons, and DIY tropical fruit skewers. The guest of honor and her guests raved about about the tea selections from Lupicia (can't really go wrong with tea from there!). The guest took home tea samplings from Lupicia that we simply dressed up in navy and yellow. Check out the details below!

congrats C!

DIY: Pink & Lavender Baby Shower - Rosettes and Push-pops!

We celebrated another happy couple's soon-to-arrive baby girl a few weekends ago. We completed the decor with shades of pinks and purples - the paper rosettes and butterflies punch-outs added the perfect touch...simple and easy-to-make! The DIY brownie push-pops favors were a big hit as well!

Congrats to J and D - can't wait to meet you baby girl!

Real Birthdays: Vroom Vroom - a race car day of fun!

Race cars - that's what this 2-year old loves right now. We loved creating this backdrop to highlight the fun theme with bold colors, racer checkers and paper rosettes made to look like silver rims. We did get some ideas off Pinterest but personalized them to this little boy.

Check out the details below: we made lots of little race car treats; from brownie race cars (shaped from Costco premade brownies), kit-kat traffic lights, pretzel "dipsticks" to cotton candy "airbags." The cul-de-sac in front of the house was blocked off and turned into a race track filled with cardboard cars, pedal cars and motor cars. The birthday boy and his friends had a great time on this beautiful, sunny day in February!
