Like so many little girls, Eliza loves dress up, playing mommy and tea parties. She is almost always in someone else’s shoes… usually her sisters’ tap shoes or my high heels. It started early and funny enough, “shoes” was actually her first word after “momma” and “dadda”. This year, pulling off a big party just wasn’t feasible, but fortunately, the only thing Eliza requested was a tea party with her best girlfriend, Blayke. Absolutely, I can do that! I sought the help of the talented Casey at Sugar Studios. She created the adorable silhouette and I just LOVE how it came out!

Eliza and Blayke are only one day apart, born in the same hospital and our rooms were just down the hall from each other! Her mom and I are dear friends and our daughters have shared such a special relationship, literally from the very start. Look at the most precious photos captured by Kim Craig Ali Photography. These two just adore each other!


The white dresses were hand-me-downs from my Anna Claire and Julia and I asked Blayke’s mommy to send along her pearls and heels. The girls were sooo eager to get dressed up. It’s easy to forget sometimes that the most simple things can be so exciting to little ones! I wish I had a picture of Eliza’s face when she saw her room. She was so excited! The night before the party, Eliza got to sleep in our bed and I transformed her room after she went to sleep. Timing was perfect as we were sadly taking down her crib, putting away the glider and making way for her big girl bed. We used our Carolina play table and chairs from Pottery Barn Kids. I pulled in Anna Claire’s nightstand for our cake table and we used Eliza’s dresser as our “serving station”. Our Harper Rug is also from PBK. It was a very simple setup, but the girls felt sooo fancy!


The Little Miss Collection includes the following: invite, pennant banner, water bottle wraps, place cards, favor tags, cupcake toppers, welcome sign, flat note, stickers and straw flags. No matter how small the party, I can’t help but still love all the details! My husband just laughs at how excited I get, but it is so fun! Enjoy it while we can, right?



The beautiful cake was made by local baker, Kate Petronis. Kate shares my love for parties and has designed some incredible cakes!! You can see lots more of her work and party ideas on her blog at And Everything Sweet. I found the inspiration for this cake in a random google search and sadly, I do not know where. To the creative mind behind the original cake, thank you for sharing your talent! I hope our take is a compliment to you! I apologize for not being able to give correct credit where credit is due. Kate did an awesome job and of course, it was sooo delicious! The whole “too pretty to eat” does not stand true in our house! We had a family party that night and dug in!



After we dressed up, the girls were ready for their “tea cake”. On birthdays, I let them completely spoil their meals so we ate cupcakes first. You can see Eliza was not keen on sharing. She took her time, yet the rest were ready to nibble hers as seconds! That face!
I only set the table for Eliza and Blayke, but the big sisters really wanted to be part of the fun. We decided Anna Claire and Julia could be the waitresses and they just LOVED that idea!! I set up Eliza’s dresser as a serving station with drink pitchers, napkins, snacks and their boxed lunch. The white gable boxes came from Smash Cake & Co. I dressed it up with the silhouette sticker and polka dot ribbon from JoAnn. The snack containers were filled with yogurt and can be found in the Sweet Peach shop. The pink striped napkins came from the Target party aisle and matched perfectly.


For the favor, I bought these white boxes at Michaels and filled them with some girlie fun…. pink nail polish, pink lip gloss that looked like lipstick (they loved that), and some play jewelry.



After lunch, the girls just played… squealed, scooted around in heels, laughed and played! It was a simple celebration, but so sweet! I’m sooo thankful I had Kim Craig Ali Photography come over. She captured some of the most precious pictures that I will absolutely treasure! My little Minnie Pearl…

I wish this picture was a video! I would love to remember what they were laughing about! Something extremely silly, I’m sure, but they do have the cutest giggles together!


Happy 3rd Birthday to our dear friend, Blayke! {We sang to both of them!} You have such a sweet, tender heart, Blayke!! We are so thankful for you and your precious friendship!

And Happy 3rd Birthday to my my most precious, Eliza! You absolutely brighten our family! Your spunky personality, contagious giggle and 3 going on 13 conversations bring us so much laughter! I am so blessed to be your momma!

My husband was checking our credit card the other night when I heard, “What is Posh Pickle?” I may be slightly in love with their new spring line! I also have this ticking timer in my head and know that I won’t get to dress the girls this way for long! They are growing up so fast on me!! I have a serious heart for sweet smocked dresses and preppy southern clothing. Posh Pickle is just that! They are also one of the MOST reasonable, yet quality clothing shops that I have come across! If this is your style, you NEED to take a visit to Posh Pickle. Your husband will thank me!! This is one of my favorites so far. I bought these sweet lobster dresses and just love them! We are going to Kennebunkport, Maine this summer so I couldn’t resist!
I love how perfectly so many of the Posh Pickle dresses match our party collections! Wouldn’t these sweet seashell dresses be great for your Mermaids and Mommies party?
Perfect match for your bright pink Preppy Nautical party….

And that is just the beginning! Be sure to become a Facebook fan for the Tuesday night auctions. Everything I’ve bought has been on sale!! Happy Shopping!

I’m excited to finally share with you Anna Claire and Julia’s “Mermaids & Mommies” party! It was such a sweet day with dear friends. We decided to leave the dads, boys and babies at home for an all girl celebration. I don’t think makeovers, tutus and dancing would have been top on their list!

As the girls arrived, we welcomed them with mermaid makeovers. The mommies helped the mermaids change into their matching tanks and tutus. They also had the opportunity to put on a little makeup and paint their nails, which the girls loved. They were then ready to dance! Our sweet baby-sitter choreographed an adorable dance to “Under the Sea” to teach the girls. While the mermaids danced, the mommies and grandmommies enjoyed their dinner. I quickly decided that I LOVE smaller parties! We could enjoy each other’s company and actually relax. It was just as much fun for the moms and it was for the mermaids!


Our dessert table was simple, but perfect for our smaller group of mermaids and mommies. The beautiful cookies were designed by Kristie of Peapods. She also designed the cookies for Eliza’s Watermelon Picnic. I love how she takes our theme and designs something so perfect each time! Her package is always a fun surprise to open! The striped straws, gable boxes and wooden utensils came from Smash Cake & Co. What an adorable shop for all your party supplies! I used the larger white boxes for the “Mommy” lunches and the white lunch bags for the “Mermaids”. The eyelet scallop was created by using Martha Stewart’s edger punch and the plastic snack containers have become a staple for our parties. I just love using them! They can be purchased in the shop and coordinating stickers are available for many of the collections.




The shell art used on the invitation and throughout the collection was hand drawn by the talented Kori Clark. I wanted something very simple and delicate so her art worked perfectly. Anna Claire and Julia’s sweet necklaces were custom made by Lil Mar & Co. They were a really fun addition to their mermaid makeover and the girls LOVED them! Kim Craig Ali Photography was also back to take the wonderful photos. Thank you, Kim, for all your hard work and time!! I’m so thankful for the precious photos you captured!


The beautiful table and chairs came from Events Rental Unlimited. I worked with Laurie in the Atlanta office and she was so accommodating! It was one of those weekends with scattered summer storms one minute and sunshine the next. We took a risk, had a huge storm and the sun peeked out just before the party. Praise!! Check out those clouds lingering in the sky! Laurie was wonderful about giving us the extra time we needed with the unpredictable weather.





The girls had so much fun dancing and dining! For their favor, we sent them home in their tutu along with a sweet treat for the dads. Each favor bag held an adorable Sweet Goosie Girl cookie. We wanted to say thank you to the fathers for taking care of the family while we had a fun girlie evening. Thank you, Terri, for always creating such yummy and beautiful treats! The striped favor bags were also from Smash Cake & Co. along with the giant pink balloons.


Happy Birthday to my favorite 5 year olds! I love you, Anna Claire! I love you, Julia! I’m so thankful that I was chosen to be the momma of these two! What an incredible friendship they share and blessing it is to watch them grow!

I know I say it all the time, but I just LOVE seeing your party photos!! The Preppy Nautical Party was the #1 selling collection of 2013 and it makes me so happy to see the precious smiles behind it! Miss Emilia celebrated her second birthday in preppy style and I’m excited to share these beautiful photos with you!

Emilia’s talented momma made this adorable party hat using the coordinating plate liners from the Preppy Nautical Collection. What a beautiful party girl ready for her big day! The wonderful photos were taken by Chelsea Victoria Photography. So so pretty! The pink and navy nautical cake was made by Cakes by May. With the design help of Elizabeth, Emilia’s mommy, a perfect plan was created. I love how they included the coordinating Preppy Nautical banner and matching monogrammed sailboat in the design. Wow, just darling! For those of you local to West Palm Beach, be sure to check out Cakes by May.




Another fun detail is this adorable custom made piñata! Using the monogram sailboat design, Rosalba of Miami, made a perfectly matching piñata! This is the first time I’ve seen a Preppy Nautical custom piñata! So so cute! Happy 2nd Birthday, sweet Emilia! Thank you, Elizabeth, for sharing your beautiful photos with us! I love that Sweet Peach could be a small part of Emilia’s very special day!

Earlier this summer, sweet Lucy celebrated her first birthday with the Ice Cream Parlor Collection! Do you recognize the red and white parlor stand? It is just like the one we used for Anna Claire and Julia’s 3rd birthday. My dad whipped up another that was just perfect for their backyard event. In fact, Lucy’s smart mommy purchased all our extra party supplies and put them to fabulous use! Paula is an amazing planner!! She had Lucy’s party theme chosen before she was even born!
New 2.5 inch circle stickers were designed for the ice cream cups and straw flags are also now available.


These beautiful photos were taken by the very talented Atlanta Photographer, Andrea Wood. Andrea took one of my very favorite pictures of the girls for our Christmas card two years ago!


Atlanta’s famous diner, The Varsity, catered with their food truck. I just love that idea!



Ice cream coloring, stickers and ice cream bubbles are perfect ideas to keep all ages entertained!


And of course, lots of ice cream! Paula always puts together the sweetest parties and this one was no less.





Happy 1st Birthday, Lucy! Thank you, Paula, for allowing Sweet Peach to be a small part of this special day!

Anyone else holding tight to the last days of summer? I always get a little sad when it comes to an end and the long days shorten. I also really, REALLY love summer!! I recently revised the Ice Cream Parlor Collection for the sweetest owner, Krista of Hoopla Events. She held an “End of the Summer” celebration and invited friends over to their lemonade stand. Although I don’t have pictures just yet, the Lemonade Stand Collection includes all the coordinating items. You can find the invitation in the shop HERE!
Earlier this summer, we held our first lemonade stand with cousins while at the beach. It was so fun to see the personalities of my little girls at work. Julia and Eliza tried to sneak sips of lemonade and nibble cookies while Anna Claire waved in the cars. She was so serious about her job and VERY sure every dollar was accounted for. She was particularly not pleased with her sisters eating the inventory! My husband and I got the biggest laughs out of their personalities at work! We used a simple cardboard stand that my sister-in-law found at Michaels. The girls colored it and really enjoyed making it their own. Seeing how much they loved it, we may hold another lemonade sale before the summer officially ends! So much fun!
