When Big Brother and Little Sister both love the Hotel Transylvania franchise and are only a month apart on birthdays, Mom Boss Event planner Cynthia Chavira-Najares decided to plan and execute a party they would both enjoy. The theme would serve the inspiration for one combined soiree not one detail would be missed. With everything slowly opening up it meant keeping the guest count to a 35 minimum outdoors.Typically their parties would have a guest count of 90+ guests but the Challenge was accepted for these half human half vampires turning 103 and 105 "3" & "5"
The spooky summer theme was a hit for us humans but you won't catch us on gremlin air anytime soon. Tiesto’s Seavolution, wave rider and tear it down was playing but once macarena came on it kept kraken in a happy place lol.
With returning vendors from last years pivot during a pandemic features we had to keep the tradition going
SummerWeen was the theme as movies 1-3 were honored at this Shindig
2 Photo Op backdrops ( Haweewee & Spiderweb signs like opening scene of the first movie)
Photobooth green screen with carefully selected backgrounds from the movies
Fog, bubble and confetti
Custom attire for both birthday girl and boy
Leis, cruise ship backdrop behind tables, cauldron candy holders, mugs and palm tree sippers
Cauldron coolers, Neon vampire teeth and sunglasses, Balloons to adorn the candy table and life size blobby! For Entertainment, A Kraken like waterslide and aquarium with sea life including a stingray and shark experience for all to enjoy.
Two cakes for each birthday girl and boy, Cookies that looked too good to eat.
Niya turned 103 and Ashton 105... Vampire years of course but these two were smiles the entire day.

Diana Soto @sugar_kiss_baking_co
Diana does it again, I have had the pleasure in indulging and creative consulting my vision to reality with her every single time since 2016. She created two very special cakes for both Ashton and Niya that captured all details from their favorite movies of Hotel Transylvania
Georgina Dunn @georgina.patricia.designs
Signage, Birthday boy and girl attire and flying table faces for linen
Georgina, a graduate from FIDM never fails when it comes to concept to design when given her inspiration for anything I need for my events. She not only created custom spiderweb like signage for a backdrop along with "haweewee" which you know what that means if you seen the movies but she made faces for our flying tables like in the first movie and the grand finale custom capes so Ashton can be drac and Niya can be mavis. Our little human vampires. Finding a shirt for Ashton was hard so Georgina custom made the shirt with buttons that are toddler friendly. She also stepped in and took over as coordinator for team fate!! Thank you Georgie
Wendy created a custom life size Blobby for us that I was so excited to see come to life and beautiful garland for dessert table along with a #5 and #3 balloon stands that were so versatile throughout the event space.
Eva provided a greenery hedge backdrop used for the "summerween" soiree and haweewee white floral backdrop they were perfect for the event!
Stephen provided enhancements for the event a Smog, bubble and confetti machine. The moments last forever and cleanup is temporary lol!

Photobooth Green Screen
Steve always knocks out the custom concept for my backdrops for the photobooth ! I carefully selected scenes from birthday moments in the movies and other perfect scenes for the party. It was amazing per usual !
OMG the detail of these cookies was amazing, her first attempt and they were too perfect to eat, but they were definitely gone once the party was over.
