First Communion Party

If you've been following along, I've been posting here and there about my daughter's first communion.  If you missed it, you can read about it here and here.  The day finally arrived at the end of April and today I'm sharing how the party turned out.  I wanted the style to be sweet and feminine, so I decided on a palette of pale pink and gray.  When my daughter chose a dress that had some lace in it, I also added some touches of lace to the decor.  

Gold + Copper Holiday Table

Like many of us, I have been busy trying to get all of the details for the holidays taken care of, which has left me little time to blog.  I just wanted to write this post to share with you this gold and copper holiday table I'm planning for a Christmas day brunch I'm hosting.  I'm in love with metallic colors right now, which is perfect for holidays. 

Wizard of Oz Party

My oldest daughter Ellie wanted a Wizard of Oz themed party this year for her 7th birthday.  I think that sometimes you can go a little overboard with the Wizard of Oz theme because there are so many design elements that you could incorporate.  I wanted a simplified version of the Wizard of Oz, so I stuck with a palette of red, blue and yellow.  Here's how it turned out.

Little Golden Books Baby Shower

I recently helped coordinate my sister-in-law's baby shower. I was thrilled that she fell in love with a Little Golden Books, nursery rhyme inspired invitation I had found from Nickle Design. Little Golden Books were first published in 1942 and I instantly thought of tying in a vintage theme with her baby shower. I contacted the lovely Kelly at Serradella Vintage Rentals who had some wonderful items to make the shower extra special. Here is how it turned out.  Read more...

Handmade Cupcake Themed Birthday Party

We recently helped a friend style her daughter's 2nd birthday party. The birthday girl's Mom made adorable invites out of scrapbook paper and we took it from there, centering the entire party. She had left over paper which we used for the majority of the decor. With that, the party ended up being a handmade birthday party inspired by the look of the scrapbook paper. We didn't want the scrapbook paper to go to waste and it was a good way to save some money. You will find that we always take the oppurtunity to save a few bucks. The bunting, food signs, and the welcome sign were all created from the scrapbook paper.   Read more...
