My Dirty Thirty Tokidoki Birthday Party

IMG_8935

I had been planning this party 2 months prior.  I was debating to have a party or not.  After numerous, "You should have a party!  You're turning 30!", it was decided that I would.  You know me and themes...and it no doubt it my mind it HAD to be a tokidoki theme.

I have been in love with tokidoki since I saw it while on vacation in Hawaii.  It was newly released as Le Sport Sac bags...after that ... my wallet has never recovered. :P

Anyways, first off, decor!  What was I going to do?  I contacted tokidoki if they had anything that they don't need anymore from their stores (posters, cardboards, etc).  They replied that they didn't provide these for customers.  I did order a box of frenzies for my party favors and they also hooked it up with stickers.  Their customer service peeps were awesome!  Big ups to Danielle and Trisha at their headquarters!  I ended up using my tokidoki toys, skateboard decks, and print outs as my decor.

Next was the cake.  I was debating also if I was going to do my own cake!  Then I thought to myself about all the things I would need to do during that week, as well as make my bff's birthday cake (her bday is a day after mines!).  So I started hunting for a cake decorator.  I was looking for someone who had a specific style (kinda like mine).  Then low and behold, Ron (the hubster), finds his friend on FB whose gf made cakes.  I looked at her cakes and fell in love.  A woman after my own heart!  I booked her asap!  Check her out at L.A. Cake !

My "Blind Box" Party favors.  They either had a tokidoki pin or tokidoki frenzie.  They also had the option of a bag of candy with a tokidoki sticker.
