>I’m excited to share with you The Cowgirl Collection! I just love all the possibilities of this theme. Hay barrels, stick horses, pink boots and country music! Hopefully one of the girls in our house will want to a wild west birthday! I would love to put together this party!!
The cupcake topper file is designed for the 2 inch scallop craft punch. Punch and glue to a lollipop stick to create your own cupcake toppers. The scallops can also be used as party circles, favor tags, trail mix jar toppers and more!
The pennant banner brings together all the prints and patterns of the Cowgirl Collection. Print, cut and string together with some raffia or thin rope for your rodeo event.

Think of the fun favor possibilities…. Cowgirl and Cowboy hats (Michael’s sells great pink and brown ones at a bargain with your 40% coupon). Give your guests their hats as they arrive and send them home in style. You could also do an old fashion mason jar cookie mix. Or maybe some homemade trail mix with your favor tag attached!
Decorate your drink station with old fashion root beer bottles and sweet tea in mason jars for that country feel.
Don’t forget your thank you notes and return address labels…Print your water bottle and napkin labels, wrap and attach with a bit of glue or piece of clear tape. So simple, yet one of my favorite details! :)
Food labels are also available for the Cowgirl Collection upon request! Think of all the fun food ideas you could have…. pork sliders, pigs in a blanket, “haystacks” aka rice crispy treats, lemonade, sweet tea. A full country western affair! Yee-Haw!

The invites have been sent so take a peek and check back after the party for more of this collection to come! (Can’t spoil the fun for all the guests!) I know Jill will pull off the cutest county fair in town! Can’t wait to see! Happy Birthday Mallory!

>Always feel free to ask if an invitation can be customized to your color desires. Most of the time, it is very possible! :) A customer today had these adorable plates that she ordered from Lima Bean Kids . Oh what an adorable shop!


The perfect plate for the birthday boy! Lima Bean Kids also has plates that would coordinate for the girls’ preppy whale collection along with t-shirts, lunch boxes and more! I even spotted some super cute coordinates for the sweet shoppe, cowgirl and what a hoot party printables! Be sure and check them out at LimaBeanKids.Com! I may need to do some early Christmas shopping! :)

We had the sweetest time celebrating the girls’ 3rd birthday!  This summer, my hubbie took the girls on their first trip to the ice cream shoppe and it has been a prized date with daddy ever since.  So I decided we would create our own backyard parlor and the girls loved every minute of it!  What a special time of celebrating our sweet girls with dear friends and family!!  
Thanks to a very handy Gramps, the girls had an adorable ice cream stand waiting for them in the backyard the morning of their birthday. 
The applique ice cream shirts were ordered from Gigi Babies and I just loved them! The ruffled edges made them extra girly compared to the regular tee. Christy, the shop owner, was so wonderful to work with and is already making some Disney shirts for our upcoming vacation!  Be sure to visit her adorable shop HERE!  
I just love pennant banners for that classic ice cream parlor setting.  With 50s music playing, soda jerk hats and striped paper straws, we had some retro fun! 
 
Once ice cream was served, we gave each kiddo a soda jerk hat from The Varsity.  For the non-Atlanta friends, The Varsity is the world’s largest drive-in diner and has been open since 1928!  It’s a classic Atlanta spot for diner burgers, frosted oranges and “What’ll ya have?”

One of the girls’ birthday presents was the wooden ice cream set from Melissa and Doug.  I bought it at Michaels with a 40% coupon and got it much cheaper than paying shipping prices.  They LOVE it and have been serving up ice cream cones for the last 2 weeks!
Sugar cones and the cutest mini cake cones were found at Walmart.  I ordered the polka dot cups, striped cupcake liners and wooden spoons from Shop Sweet Lulu.  A great online shop for paper straws, balloons, favor bags and so much more!
The ice cream parlor printable collection is available for purchase, but hasn’t made it into my esty shop just yet.  If you are having an ice cream party soon, simply email your requests for a listing.
Another sweet customer and new friend offered her ice cream glasses for the party.  I have a bazillion paper straws left over from another shower so I was glad to use them!
Fun red diner baskets that I found on clearance at Joann for a quarter! 
Printable water bottle wraps from the Parlor Party Collection.
My dad has the sweet tooth in our family so I had some Red Vine licorice and cherry sours just for him!  It’s possible I had a few too! ;)

IBC root beers, glass cokes and ice cream were on sale several times this summer at Publix and Kroger so it I grabbed them when I could save a few pennies! :)

I used the diner paper dishes for sandwiches and snacks.  The sweet manager at The Varsity gave me a whole stack after our last lunch visit.  Never hurts to sweetly ask!  The individual portions look cute and are great for kids!
This may have been the most enjoyable part of the party…. teaching 3 year olds how to run a relay race.  I laminated the individual parts of an ice cream cone, added velcro to the back of each piece and hung felt squares along the fence.  With a basket at the other end, the kids assembled their ice cream cone by running back and forth to add each piece.  Their sweet giggles to play such a fun “new” game were priceless!!
After a sugar filled morning, I thought it only fitting to send our toddlers  home with toothbrushes! Another friend and customer used the same favor for her daughter’s sweet shoppe party and I just loved it!  With peppermints for the parents, everyone went home happy.  The favor sign is also available as a printable with the parlor printable collection.
And one more fun idea that I spotted in my party planning…
As each guest left, I took pictures to create a party album for the girls.  They LOVE looking at pictures of their family and friends.  I have also started pre-school with them this week so it will be a fun way for us to practice letters as well!
Each guest held the blank card that I designed and I then digitally added their name.
All fun must come to an end eventually. The girls had the best time celebrating their special day!  We have pulled the ice cream parlor into the backyard several times since to re-stage our party fun once again.  My sweet Julia always has a hard time saying goodbye.  At least Anna Claire leaves you with a grin! :)  What a FUN day! 
Happy Birthday, Anna Claire!  Happy Birthday, Julia!  I love you dearly and am so proud to be your momma!  You are my favorite 3 year olds in the whole wide world!! I will always love celebrating you! Can’t wait to party again next year!  Until then, stop growing up so fast!!  All my love!!

>Has this summer absolutely flown by or is it just me?!! Wow, I can’t believe September is around the corner. For those wanting to throw one last summer fling, think about an under the sea theme. It’s also never too early to start planning for next year. Get those sand buckets, shells and summer goodies now as they go on clearance and you’ll be ready for a great beach party that costs much less!

> Jacob’s momma did a fabulous job of using the Under the Sea Collection for her little guy’s 3rd birthday!
I love this cake!! And how cute are these beach ball party favor cookies! I’m not sure where Jacob’s mom purchased the favors, but I saw some JUST like these at the Dollar Tree last week!
Adorable applique t-shirt to match the party theme!
Notice the tub of sand used to hold the fruit kabobs. Great idea!

Fish shaped watermelon skewers! Perfect pool side treat!
Cute, cute party! Happy Birthday Jacob! Your creative momma did a great job!
