My nephew just recently had a baby boy! I know what you’re thinking. Shari, you are far too young to be a great auntie! To that I would say you’re too kind and totally right! So my sister (grandma) is throwing them a co-ed Barbeque baby shower. So I made these invitations for the event. I named the event A Babe-B-Q! Get it?! Ehhhhh? Clever right? I have my moments. To complete my vision I threw together a quick mood board for the party! And the list goes a little something like this…
For my 5th project I was asked to plan a party for a friend’s little girl’s birthday. She’s having an ice skating party so I went in 2 different directions a glittery glam skate party and a vintage winter skate party. Starting with the glittery glam skate party.
A. Sparkly party hats
B. Pom pom snow balls as decor
C. Tutus that each girl will make to skate in and take home
D. Rock candy for the kids that decorate the table
E. Cupcakes in glitter linings
F. Snowflake table runner
G. Finally a glittery invite designed by me to go with the party.
For the second option I created a vintage ice skating party mood board…
A. Cotton Snowball garland hanging everywhere
B. snow pine cones as part of the decor on the tables
C. DIY snow globes that all the kids will make and take home
D. Melting snowman cookies
E. A craft paper vintage invite by yours truly
F. And finally cake pop snowballs.
I can’t wait to create the final party. Stay tuned to see which party they went with!
So I’m back betches! And mama has some big plans for the new year! Of course I have all of the same resolutions as everyone else…lose weight, get healthy, wake up earlier, be kinder, volunteer, clean more, get out of debt and save money. However, I’ve decided not to declare any of those things. Instead I’ve decided to focus my energy on something that I’ve been thinking about for awhile. This year my goal is to complete 1 project per week. Hence the brilliant title Project 52! Ok it’s not brilliant but whatevs. What makes me declare such an ambitious thing? I’m so glad you asked! I have so many ideas that I don’t take the time to actually sit down and complete. Then the ideas are just left swimming around in my head, being sad and uncreated. They want to be created and I’m just the girl to do it. Also I’m tired of saying to myself I can make that! So this year I’m putting my money where my mouth is and doing it!
PS. Do you think I can count this post as project #1? HA! Fine, project #1 coming soon!
Calling all campers! I know many of you will be camping this fourth of July weekend so to get you in the mood for some camping fun I thought I’d share Sophie’s recent birthday party. We invited all her little friends to a camp out in our backyard. Unfortunately it rained all day and we couldn’t camp out in the back or do a camp fire : ( So Daddy set up the tent in the basement for the girls to sleep in. I think the girls had just as much fun sleeping indoors. We ate camp food and campfire cupcakes. We gave them all their own flash lights and glow bracelets. They went to bed late and woke up at 6 am! Ahhhhhh! Needless to say we all took naps later that day. Overall the party was super fun and we sent the girls home with a goody bag full of treats and s’mores. Happy trails Campers!
We love angry birds at our house. If you don’t know about Angry Birds you should seriously check them out! We had Gabby’s birthday party at Pump it Up and they provide the invites and paper products so there wasn’t much left for me to do creatively. Then I came across these awesome cupcakes at the crafting chicks, When I showed Gabby and she loved them! Her favorite angry bird is the black bomb bird! So I made that one specially for her! They turned out great and her party was a huge success. As much as I love throwing the kids parties and making them adorably coordinated sometimes having it somewhere is so worth the stress saver. Also enjoy this awesome real life Angry Birds Game
