Spring Break!

Happy Wednesday!  It’s been a little quiet around here as I have been sloooowly getting back into the routine.  Last week was Spring Break and so nice!  High 70s, break out the flip flops, no schedule, wonderful!  The highlight was spending the weekend with my dear college roommates.  I’m so proud that I have to publicly brag on them!  We’ve been out of school for 12 years and live across the country, but have continued to get together once a year.  With 9 babies and more to come, we’ve yet to miss a trip!  When you have dear friendships, do what it takes to hold on tight!!

 We have about 9 billion pictures of the 4 of us, but this will forever be a favorite!  I love you, girls!

I spotted this adorable farm themed party feature on Little Big Company and had to share. It was as if it was designed to match the Fresh on the Farm Collection! The party was designed by Peace of Cake and I just love the clean simplicity! A few sweet choices arranged in one neat space. To see the full party feature, visit Little Big Company.

I have been adding some new boards to the Sweet Peach Pinterest page! I’ve recently pinned some of the sweetest ideas for a Pink Lemonade Party. Can you tell I’m dreaming of spring? We set up our first lemonade stand last summer while on vacation with cousins. The girls absolutely LOVED it! I quickly learned that my Anna Claire may have inherited the entrepreneurial gene! She was one serious lemonade seller! It will be fun to set up another this summer!

Of all printables, I seem to get the most questions about water bottle wraps. For today’s Tuesday Tip, I hope to answer all those questions. They are truly super simple to create!!

What kind of water bottles should I buy?
I find Aquafina water bottles or Kroger brand bottles (12 pack) to work the best. The wraps will fit on any standard water bottle, but the particular shape of these brands make the wrap completely smooth to the bottle. For some reason, the bottles change shape from a Kroger 12 pack to a 24 pack so be sure to grab the 12 pack if you purchase the Kroger brand. Those pictured above are the Aquafina water bottles. The SPP wraps are nearly identical to the size of the Aquafina wraps so they work perfectly!

What kind of paper do you use to print your wraps?
I print all my wraps on glossy copy paper and then trim to size. Your local printing company and most office copy centers (Staples, Office Max, etc.) offer a glossy paper option if you choose to print professionally.

Do your wraps fit a particular Avery label?
No, the wraps do not require an Avery label, simply 8.5 x 11 paper.

Is it better to print the wraps on copy paper or sticker paper?
Either option works, but I find it easier to work with paper compared to sticker sheets.

How do you keep your water bottles cold?
After attaching the wraps, chill the water bottles in the fridge overnight. Just before the party, lay them out. If I need to keep extras on ice, I do not submerge the whole bottle. Simply push the base of the bottle into the ice. The paper wraps are not waterproof.

How do you assemble the wraps?
1. Print your wraps on 8.5 x 11 sheets.
2. Trim the wraps to size. A cutting board makes this job easiest!!
3. Remove the Aquafina or Kroger wrap from your bottle.
4. Replace with your new SPP wrap!
5. Use a bit of glue to adhere the wrap and seal with a piece of clear tape if needed.
6. Voila!!

If you have further questions, I’m happy to help! I promise, they are super easy!!

Over the last couple weeks, I’ve been working on a custom order for one of my sweetest and loyal customers. Inspired by the birthday boy’s favorite show, Wild Kratts, a wild adventure/ jungle safari theme party was chosen. It’s been a fun collection to work on and I can’t wait to see how this creative mom pulls it all together! The 7 year old birthday boy chose all the items for his scavenger hunt list. I love it!

Lots more to come!

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!

A huge thank you goes to all the wonderful vendors who contributed their time and supplies:

I have so many planning tips and FAQs that I would love to share with you. I may just see if I can get a schedule going and share some of those ideas on a regular basis. One question I am asked often is where to buy the milk glass bottles. Little secret…mine are actually recycled Starbucks Frappuccino bottles. They work perfectly!!

A Mocha Frappuccino is definitely a favorite of mine! Enjoy and save the bottle! It is the perfect height to hold a striped straw and the Sweet Peach water bottle wraps fit exactly. You can get 4 bottles for $5. It just takes a bit more prep. Drink away and then remove the wrapper. There will be a bit of gooey residue left behind. I used Goo Gone and it works instantly. Run your bottle through the dishwasher and you are ready to use! The only difference in your bottle will be the code stamped on the glass. I turn it to the back and you never notice. It’s also nice to have an option that doesn’t require shipping. If that idea doesn’t work for you and you want brand new, check out Smash Cake & Co..

My Starbucks bottles have been put to use many times, including Eliza’s Watermelon Picnic. For more details on her summer party, check out the full post. Happy Tuesday!
