Aliana’s mother wanted a colorful animal-theme party for her daughter’s birthday. So, Abby Ayeh of Pretty Posh Events, came up this clever idea of an animal parade in the busy, bustling city of New York! The result was a chic, colorful and brilliant party with plenty of entertainment and excitement. Come along, we are off to see this parade!

Take a look at this stunning dessert table, and its magnificent backdrop! The exemplary poster in the background has colorful animal silhouettes marching across the black and white NYC skyline. A spectacular spread of the most delicious delights are arranged artistically on a white table. Black and white stripe ribbons that match the party theme, accessorize the bottles and jars in the dessert arrangement.  I love Abbey’s idea of adding miniature New York city cabs to the décor, perfect to emphasize the theme.

Birthday Party NYC

Bright pom-poms are used as accessories on white party hats with colorful animals prints, for a pop of color.

Flower arrangements feature white blooms interspersed with brilliant pops of yellow and rose. Each flower vase is accented with black and white striped ribbons, that tie it to the central theme.

Bright Floral Centerpiece

Abbey has an excellent knack for adding the right details at the right places. See how she has used the signature print on water bottle labels, and instantly elevated their look.

Sugar cookies sport a variety of designs, including the birthday girl’s name, colorful animals and the NYC skyline.

Milk bottles are accessorized with black and white stripe ribbons and custom party labels. The addition of striped straws with adorable polka dot bows, adds more impact to the impressive arrangement.

Animal Theme Children's Party

How inviting are these delicious red and yellow velvet cupcakes with a rich dollop of soft cream frosting? The delightful animal cupcake toppers add an extra-special touch to the decadent desserts.

The lavish dessert spread also includes glossy white cake pops decorated with webs of colored frosting.

White Cake Pops

Occupying center-stage is an amazing cake with the silhouette of the NYC skyline, and happy animals waving balloons and parading around its circumference. The black and white cake stand on which it sits, complements the colors of the cake beautifully.

Here are some animal party masks for the guests. What a fun way to get everyone involved in the party!

Party favors are placed in white favor bags, customized with a central black and white stripe ribbon and a colorful thank you message on the signature party print. Abbey surprises us with little details like the vibrant dose of color from the pink paper popping out at the top of the bags. These interesting touches are just so charming.

The signature symbol of New York,the NYC taxi, is used throughout the décor. It brings the spirit of the city alive, and is an exciting addition to the arrangement.

Wasn’t that fun? Now it is time for the animals to return to the jungle after their marvelous tour of the city. I am sure they all had a memorable experience, just as the guests at Aliana’s birthday bash did!


It all started with Adam Levine. You may wonder what scheduling pins has to do with Adam Levine. One of the friends I follow LOVES Adam and posts pictures of him. Lots of pictures. Day and night.  In fact, my entire Pinterest feed could have easily been filled with one photo after another of the Maroon V singer on any given day.  Anyway, since I use my Pinterest for business, I didn’t want those who follow me to have the same experience.    Then I found Viraltag pin scheduler and it made my life easier and my followers’ experience better.

First, seeing several images in a row from one pinner can get tiresome, especially if not all of your interests coincide with his or hers.  This was a problem for me in the past because I liked to spend a concentrated amount of time pinning.  With Viraltag, I can spread my pins out by scheduling them.

Secondly, not all of the people I want to reach are on Pinterest at the same time that I am.  So having the ability to schedule pins throughout the day and night has been especially beneficial.

Here are some of the simple steps involved in using Viraltag.  The first screen that pops up allows you to select one or many images that you would like to schedule.  This is great for bloggers, as most likely there is more than one image that is important to pin.

Pinterst Scheduling

After you select the photos you wish to pin, you are then taken to a screen that allows you to schedule in bulk.  It is here that you select the Pinterest boards where you would like each pin to appear.

Schedule Pins in Bulk

Once you choose the board you have two options to schedule.  If you click on “Schedule” you can select the time and day you wish your pins to go live.  If you are pinning several images in a row, you can also determine how much time in between each pin that you would like.  Just select an amount of time in the section: “Interval between Posts.”  I use the schedule function when pinning several images with a similar theme.  For example, let’s say I am spending the evening pinning about great holiday favors.  Since not everyone has interest in this topic, I spread the images out over time so that my followers are not inundated with holiday favor ideas.

Scheduling Pins

Your other option is to select the red button “Add all to Queue”  which is shown above and to the right of “Schedule.”   This is quicker than scheduling each pin.  It allows you to schedule all of your pins in bulk, one after another.  However, I only “Add all to Queue” when I am pinning a variety of images in a row, or ones with different themes.  For example, I may pin a Christmas ornament favor, next a Bar Mitzvah favor, and next a 50th birthday favor.  Once you click on “Add all to Queue” you will see this message:


If you want to see your pins on the dashboard, click on “Go to Dashboard.”  You will see the pins as well as the exact time they will appear on Pinterest.

How to schedule Pinterest Pins


That is how easy it is to schedule pins using Viraltag!
