> I was honored to help host a bridal shower for my sweet friend Lisa this weekend! She has found her prince and is getting married the end of August!! Lisa is the most beautiful brunette bride and I wanted a charming party collection to fit her elegance and character just perfectly.
The Damask Bride Collection can also be customized to fit your honored bride just perfectly! Ask for different hair or skin colors if you’d like!! :)

My battery died by the end of the shower so Lisa and I didn’t get a picture on my camera. I started looking through all my 9,000 pictures and found one of us still in our single days! :) What a beautiful friend you are and gorgeous bride you will be, Lisa! I am sooo happy for you, sweet friend!

> 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!

>Little Pirate Miller celebrated his 4th birthday in perfect pirate fashion! Check out some of the fun pictures that his sweet and very creative momma sent from his big day! Miller’s mom did such a great job of pulling together all the details! She even made the adorable pirate face herself! Pretty impressive! The polka dot balloons came from partyallthetimeballoon on eBay. The coordinating polka dot cupcake wrappers came from Michael’s and the polka dot wrapping paper was purchased at Target. I love how she skirted the table with it! Miller’s “Pirate Loot” was filled with gold wrapped Rolos as the perfect pirate treasure for his friends. Last, but not least, Pirate Miller’s adorable applique shirt was found at lilpinkchicken.com. Happy Birthday Miller! Coordinating banners, flat thank you notes, return address labels and all the pirate goods are also available.

>Last spring, I designed this invitation for a customer and have continued to sell it to monkey after monkey! :) Change the colors, customize the wording and you have a brand new monkey party. My most recent customer requested the following primary colors and it has been my favorite so I wanted to share.

I also found this adorable party that goes along with my monkey birthday collection just perfectly!! You can see more pictures of this “Monkey See, Monkey Do” birthday at karaspartyideas.com. Kara posts adorable pictures every day from real parties so it is a wonderful place to look for great ideas on how to use all my paper goodies. If you see something on her blog, but can’t find it here, let me know and I’m sure I can whip it up.

>A few weekends ago, I was honored to help host a baby shower for one of my BFFs, Mandy. Mandy and I met in graduate school, moved to Atlanta together, lived together, taught 3rd grade at the same school together and got married 3 weeks apart. The only thing left was to have babies together. So here we are…Mandy is expecting her first little girl in January and I will be expecting again in April! Check, check, we are pretty good at this! :)

Here is the collection I put together for her special day. My favorite decorating detail was the classic carriage that I borrowed from my mom. It was her stroller as a baby and was the perfect welcome scene for this classic carriage shower…

>With lots of inspiration from the girls’ lollipop party, I put together a cupcake sweet shoppe for Molly’s 1st birthday! Molly’s momma had already found her adorable tank top and bib from MakMay Designs so I designed her invites and party decor to go along with her cupcake party outfit. I just love all the bright colors and the bazillion ideas that come along with any kind of sweet shoppe theme! Of all the details, the toothbrush favor was my favorite! I thought that was the perfect addition to the candy buffet! :)

Sweet Shoppe Collection…

>We had the sweetest time celebrating the girls’ 2nd birthday, even though I have been delayed in posting pictures of their special day!! It was perfect weather, surrounded by dear friends and family, and simply a great morning of celebrating our little girls. We were also blessed with my dear friend Holly who photographed all the fun! You can see more of her work at hollykittlephoto.blogspot.com! So here it is, Anna Claire and Julia’s Garden Party… I cleaned up some old pots, a coat of spray paint, added some gingham ribbon and they became the perfect display for our “rakes and shovels!”
For the main centerpiece, I bought a pink watering can from HomeGoods and filled it with flowers from Michaels. The metal laterns also came from Michaels. The great thing about a garden party at the end of the summer is all the clearance garden prices!!

The bee and flower fondant toppers came from BB Cakes. You can see more of Becky’s great cake designs at b-bcakes.blogspot.com! The gingham cupcake liners came from Michaels and were just the perfect colors so I couldn’t resist!
The girls’ adorable party dresses and headbands were custom made by my sweet friend Ashley with Festive Frills. She is opening a new etsy shop soon so be sure to check out chickadeechickadee.etsy.com for a great collection of handmade clothing and hair accessories!
I bought the pink paper pots from Walmart and filled them with granola, pretzel sticks and a gummy worm to make the perfect “Garden Grub.” This particular banner was compliments of my crafty aunt and her awesome circuit machine. My banners available for purchase will be on display in the garden party collection.
My mom made this great “Dirt Cake” with oreo cookie crumbs creating the dirt surface. A garden shovel was used for serving the cake! :)
The party favors for the girls were small watering cans that came from Target’s summer pool collection. The boy favors were rakes that I found at the Dollar Tree!

My favorite party girls…
Happy Birthday to my sweet girls!! I can’t wait for more birthdays and hope you always feel extra loved on your special day! :)

This past weekend, we finally celebrated my sweet girls and their 2nd birthday with a garden party picnic. I have lots to show you from their special day, but here is a peek at a few of the details for now. My BFF of Holly Kittle Photographry made a special two hour drive to party with us and take pictures of all the action. It was a sweet morning of celebrating with friends and family, and I of course had tons of fun preparing for their big day! Lots more to come soon!

>Over the last week, I’ve had two orders for the “Fresh on the Farm” party collection and it has quickly become one of my favorites! There are just so many fun ideas to go along with this theme. With September around the corner, this would make a perfect fall birthday or baby shower! The coordinating red, green, and yellow gingham banner reads “Happy 1st Birthday” and hangs on raffia string for the perfect farm look.

A few fun ideas for a barnyard party….
