Bake Shop Party

I was thrilled to create this Lil Bake Shop theme for Susan, one of my blog contributors. She set this adorable party up for her daughter's birthday. My favorite things about this set up were the backdrop with the baking items and the banner doubled as a hanger for the girl's aprons.  Too cute and a fabulous idea. 

See what Susan, The Royal Cook has to say about the party.



My little girl LOVES to bake, so a baking party was the perfect fit for her. She chose red and blue for her colors and everything turned out super cute! 






The girls got their very own aprons and cupcake decorating kits to decorate cupcakes with, complete with frosting and lots of sprinkles! 





After the girls finished decorating their cupcakes they were all boxed up with cute little "Have your cupcakes and eat them too!" tags.


The girls left the party with a baking pan with brownie mix and a whisk.

Princess Party

Give a warm welcome to Nicole from Riley and Rose kids, she’s one of my guest bloggers and has put together this beautiful Princess party for her adorable daughter, Natalie. 
Check out all the details and what Nicole has to say about her Princess Party...

When my little princess came to me and said she wanted a princess party for her 5th birthday I was so excited. Her big sister, age 6, is a tom boy and has always wanted more "boy" themed parties like dinosaurs and aliens. 




I started party planning by contacting my favorite printables vendor Just a Little Sparkle and she made me the most beautiful invitations and matching party printable set. 





My little girl also said she wanted to have breakfast food (or first meal of the day food as she calls it) for her party, because all her favorite foods are served at breakfast. Also breakfast foods are budget friendly so it made mommy happy. :) We chose little cinnamon rolls, donuts, fruit kabobs, muffins, bagels, and OJ to drink. It made for perfect finger foods for all of our little princesses and their moms.




Dessert was mommies favorite part of the party! We served yummy Oreo truffles, cupcakes, rice crispy treats and a chocolate Frozen themed cake. Delicious! I also make sure to include cookies from my favorite baker Cookie Love and they were a big hit with the kidos!




I think my little girls favorite part of the day was when her favorite princesses from Once Upon a Time Character Company came to the door. I invited Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, and princess Ana from the new Frozen movie to help my little princesses and her friends celebrate. The princesses did all of the kids hair and make up, told stories, played games, and helped sing happy birthday to my princess. They were completely amazing and worth every penny!

I 100% believe in party planning on a budget. There are so many beautiful parties out there. I caught myself drooling every time I searched "princess party" on Pinterest! WOW! So I wanted to share some party planning deals I found with you! First, I always order a small individual cake from my local grocery store which usually runs be about $7.99! I always find they are very accommodating in putting personal touches on the cakes I order. Normal character sheet cakes can be pretty pricey, so can buying bakery cupcakes. I find homemade cupcakes are much more reasonable and usually taste better! 

Next, make sure you shop early! Once I know my party theme I am constantly checking the dollar store, and the clearance section at Walmart and Target for the perfect serving dishes and goodies for the kids.  Last, make sure you sit your little one down and ask them what they are most exited about for their party. I know as moms we want to make everything perfect when we are planning our parties but the truth of the matter is most kids are just happy to have a play date with their closest friends, eat dessert and get presents. My oldest daughter loves party printables and cupcakes! Those are a must for her at every party. My little one just wants to feel special and spend the day with friends. So I chose to let her invite her closest little girl friends and their moms and it made for the perfect party! 

I wanted to say thank you to Just a Little Sparkle for letting me share our special day with you and for making the perfect printables and to Photos by Bernie for taking such great pictures of our party! Happy Party Planning!

Valentine's Day Spa Free Printables

Today we’re sharing spa-themed Valentine’s Day party ideas from Moms & Munchkins featuring free printables by my shop! 
CLICK HERE to read the full party post on Moms & Munchkins and 
CLICK HERE to print freebies for your own party!


This party is perfect for tweens, teens and even mommies who crave an afternoon of pampering! You’re never too old to enjoy a Valentine’s Day party...especially one that involves chocolate and spa treatments! 




To set the scene for your event, do a little digging in your closets at home first. A simple white tablecloth could be draped as a backdrop to your party table, plain white cake stands could be dressed up with red & pink ribbon, clear plastic cups could be dressed up with printable party circles...and the list goes on! You’d be surprised at how many items you already have at home that can be used in your party setup. Even glittering red Christmas decorations can be reused for Valentine’s Day. 


Your spa party menu could be light and healthy with food like:
  • Mini sandwiches
  • Vegetables and dip
  • Fruit kabobs with a fluffy marshmallow dip
Or you could skip the healthy food and go with a big dessert buffet including:
  • Heart-shaped chocolates
  • Valentine’s Day candies
  • Mini cupcakes
  • Mini cookies
  • Spa-themed cookies
In addition to handing out valentines at the party, guests could enjoy spa treatments such as:
  • Manicures
  • Nail Art
  • Pedicures
  • Facials
  • Hand Massages
  • Makeup Applications
  • Hair Styling
Many cities offer mobile spa services that will come right to your home!
Party favors could include cards from fellow party guests, candy treat bags, mini manicure kits, DIY spa treatments, hair accessories, comfortable pink slippers and more!
