Sesame Street Birthday

Jamie with Sweet Jelly Parties came to me to design some Sesame Street printables for her friend Megan's daughter's birthday. Megan is a local photographer, Megan Long Photography who photographed the entire party. Great job girls!

You have to see how Jamie styled this adorably sweet party. Also, check out the great shot Megan got of her daughter cruising in her car with the pole in the background, it's the cutest!

Vintage Birdcage Baby Shower

This sweet vintage Baby shower is a must to checkout. One of my blog contributors, Cindy has put together a sweet shower for her friend.  See the details below and this is told in Cindy's words..


When one of my best friends found out she was expecting a baby girl, I jumped at the opportunity to host her baby shower.  I wanted it to be super girly with a vintage/shabby chic vibe. The invitations designed by Just a Little Sparkle were exactly what I envisioned.



I really wanted to incorporate some of  popular 36” round balloons and I figured the entry was a perfect place. I purchased the balloons from Shop Sweet Lulu and made the tassels out of plastic tablecloths using a combination of youtube tutorials. This also turned out to be a great impromptu picture spot.



The centerpieces consisted of birdcage floral arrangements.  This was my first attempt at flower arranging, and although it was not without struggle, the end result was well worth the cost savings.  Thank you, Pinterest, for the endless supply of inspiration! Additional small arrangements were displayed throughout the various party areas.






The Mommy-to-be is a big fan of OPI nail polish, so OPI’s signature “It’s a Girl” pink polish was a no brainer for the favors.


I created a simple “Who Loves Baby?” photo station to ensure each guest was accounted for in future scrapbooks.  Props were a combination of Cricut die cuts and Target dollar spot finds. Adorable printables courtesy of Just a Little Sparkle, displayed in an IKEA free-standing frame.





One of the activities was a headband making station. Guests enjoyed getting crafty while helping to build a collection of headwear for the future fashionista. 






With the help of Alyssa, from Just a Little Sparkle, I was able to create some very special keepsakes for mommy & baby. Guests enjoyed penning their wishes for baby while sipping mimosas and other fruity concoctions from the bubbly bar.







No party would be complete without a little sugar.  After all the fun and games, we concluded with a quick trip to the dessert table for a little dose of pink sweets.

Welcome to the Team FREEBEE




Soccer Season is upon us and my daughter is a first time player this year. My husband decided to coach as well so she's over the moon about it.

Today is their meet and greet and I thought it would be a cute ice breaker for the lil ones to get a lil goodie. I created these tags to add to a juice box & fruit snacks.  Just a fun little way to say, Hello..

GO TEAM!

These tags are available for a FREE download.  Enjoy!

I have to share this darling way of using those Back to School Printables. 

Stacey from Treats 4 Ta-Tas made these super cute little apple cookies used them for snacks for her kids' first day of school.  She shrunk my Back to School printables (FREE) and used them a little tags.  Cute & clever way of using these for your lil ones.

Video Game Party


I"ve worked with Wendy now several times and I love how I can finally return the favor for her son's birthday.  Wendy came to me with the video theme idea and she wanted Wii U specifically.  So I did a little research and created this modern gamer type feel for the printables.  You can find the link to the printables below.

These are Wendy's words..


Thinking of a party theme for an 11 yr is not an easy task! All my son wanted was the new Wii U, so a small small SMALL party was in order! 

I stuck with the Wii U theme and created simple dessert table and candy bar and the kids swam in the pool for entertainment!!







On the dessert table I featured my most popular dessert items: cake pops, chocolate covered Oreos, sugar cookies, dipped pretzel rods and, my kids favorite, chocolate chip cookies! 

I had a cake made to look like the new wii u controller and my son flipped! 


For favors I made Krispy treat wii controllers and provided bags and ties with thank you tags attached for the kids to take home. 

Alyssa, from Just a little Sparkle made the most adorable and detailed food labels, Banner, invites, signs and Thank you tags. They really set the whole theme and made my displays unique and special. 




This was a super simple party, but turned out great!
