{sadie} dressy

today, i found this adorable dress, that i thought completely fit the theme. my mom and i think that this would be a great dress for the service, because its not too flashy, but still really nice looking. i really love how high the collar is, it reminds me sorta of a kimono dress, which i really like.

oh, and thats me by the way.

{shari} body of water? check!

Doesn't a party billed as Sailor Glam just beg for a body of water??
Lucky for us, we have rented a beautiful 1940's party place that sits on top of a rolling hill overlooking our nearby city lake.
The price might be the best in town and the location is primo.
Another huge plus is our familiarity of the space.
We had Sophie's party here too and it was terrific.
There aren't a lot of rule and restrictions.
No list of approved caterers (we'll bring in some of our own food) and
no limits on decor. Perfectly unfancy. Just the way we like it!

Great drive up appeal.

Tables and chairs are provided. We'll likely use the tables and
rent nicer chairs.

This is my favorite part of the building. A wrap around L- shaped
screened in porch. Last time we set up our food tables out here.

We love it.
What do you think?

{shari} knot yet clear....

.....on how we're going to use knots. But we will use knots. Somehow. Somewhere.

{sadie} finger waves

these are all pictures from a teen vogue spread a few months ago. the hair and makeup is really, really nice and something similar to what i was thinking about for the hairstyles of the night.

{sadie} sammich.

the food for the party is very much in the air right now. but when i saw these little sandwiches in a roadside cart in a little wooden box online, i thought they looked beyond delicious, and adorable. i'm not sure how it would work to have sandwiches be the dinner of the night, so we will have to see!

{sadie} intro

last summer, i read a book called "the mysterious benedict society and the perilous journey". for me, this book kicked off everything sailor glam. in the book, it talked about pretty rugged sailors, big burly guys with tattoos who lifted cargo onto boats. the whole time i was reading it, i just felt a connection, as if i really needed to do something about this whole sailor thing.

so i decided that i would make my theme to my bat mitzvah "sailor glam". basically, all of those sailors, lifting cargo, with the big tattoos and all of the flags, but girly. i'm not really sure if this will make sense right now, but soon, you will really get it, and hopefully, love the idea as much as me.

this link shows one of my videos on my youtube channel inspired by sailors.

party fun for everyone. Sailor Glam 10/9/10.
Venue, menu, videos, gifts, decor and fun.
Be a fly on the wall as we plan.
