Toast Special Events | Fort Collins, Colorado

This was no ordinary birthday party.  Beautifully displayed sushi, carefully wrapped chopsticks, exotic yellow orchid and bird of paradise centerpieces and, of course champagne. Clearly, this was a classy event.  And every classy event requires a Toast … Toast Special Events to be precise!

April and Kelsey have been coordinating parties for years. It started when both of their children were in elementary school; they began working together on a fundraiser.  Not long after that, the school approached them about coordinating a PTO. Soon friends and family members were asking for help coordinating various parties and events too!  And, before they knew it, their reputation for organizing events grew.  Over time they realized a few things.  They are really really good at event planning.  They enjoy working together.  And there is high demand for their expertise.  Now that their children are older (the youngest will soon be a freshman in high school) they have decided to take their event planning to the next level.  And Toast Special Events was born.

We were fortunate enough to spend the afternoon with April and Kelsey at April’s Asian themed birthday party at Kelsey’s house.  We quickly discovered that their hospitality is generous and their smiles are contagious; which set the tone of joy and excitement for the afternoon.  As guests began to arrive, bringing in even more delicious Asian platters, the joy spread to their smiling faces also.  We have to say … we had just as much fun as they did!  Not only do these lovely ladies know how to throw a fantastic party, they are just plain fun to be around!

Pretty soon we began to hear the “pop!” of corks and everyone had a glass of Charles de Fère Rosé in their hand.  The first cork to pop, for a toast to Toast, was Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial. Moët & Chandon founder, Claude Moët, was well known for his pioneering spirit, innovation and savior-faire.  A perfectly suited representation of April and Kelsey’s vision for Toast Special Events!

April and Kelsey, thank you so much for letting us hang out with you for the afternoon!  We love your joie de vivre, friendship and vision.  We have no doubt that Toast will go as far as you want to take it.  And we are looking forward to the next time we have the opportunity to work with you!  Cheers!
