Emoji Birthday Party

To kick off the release of The Emoji Movie that’s coming to the theaters on July 28th, I styled a super fun Kids Birthday Party in collaboration with Black Twine featuring the ever so popular Emoji Balloons by Northstar Balloons.
Instead of using the usual yellow & white or black & yellow color combos, I decided to incorporate turquoise blue. The party supplies I found at Hobby Lobby were the inspiration for this fun party!
I set up a dessert station featuring an ombre cake + vanilla cupcakes adorned with adorable emoji inspired toppers, Emoji cookies and Emoji Candybobs.
The kids table was decorated with all the fun Emoji party supplies with all the amazing Emoji Balloons floating in the background.
Each kid received a ‘paint your own cookie’ kit which included a paintable Emoji face cookie, a set of paint brushes and a water cup. They had fun painting their cookies and eating them too.
As take-home party favors, I simply used Emoji wrapping paper to embellish simple gable boxes, then filled them up with emoji inspired goodies.
All the feels for this Emoji Birthday Party!

Let It Snow Holiday Party

For this party, I was looking for a cozy atmosphere that only the holidays can bring. With a touch of modern & rustic feel, I set up fun & functional stations so the adults and the kids could have a wonderful time sipping hot cocoa, enjoying delicious sweets and doing some craft!
I was excited to finally incorporate this adorable Snowman cake design by Miso Bakes I saw a long time ago via The Cake Blog.
Josephine Rees,, a beautiful and talented local lifestyle/food blogger was able to bring this adorable idea to life. I found her last minute via Instagram and fell in love with her style and the aesthetics of her feed. Josephine has an amazing eye for styling and photography. I was so thrilled to be able to join forces and collaborate with her.
I really wanted the cake to look like Miso Bakes’ creation but I also wanted to add our own spin. Once Josephine delivered her masterpiece, I added tree branches for a unique and realistic touch. I used a sled as the cake display to really carry on the winter holiday theme.
My plan was also to incorporate mini bites the guests could enjoy while mingling, but I didn’t want to overcrowd the dessert table with lots of platters and cake stands. I had the idea of displaying the mini sweets like a charcuterie board, but with Holiday bites instead. I was so pleased with how it turned out!
Resembling the snowman, I decorated milk bottles and put together fun take-home party favors. For the drink bottles I used white boa, topped each bottle with a snowman hat and finished the look with festive paper straws. I used the same idea for the DIY take-home favors. I simply filled plastic Christmas bulbs with mini marshmallows.
Giant glittered snowflakes made the perfect backdrop. A beautiful flocked Christmas tree and holiday garland were the perfect finishing touches to the dessert station.
As much as I love paper supplies, I love to get the ‘fancy’ plates out of the cabinets for our little special guests from time to time. I found adorable mini snowman dessert plates, which made the perfect addition to the kids’ table.
For a festive touch, I incorporated Christmas bulbs, candy canes, and glittered snowflakes throughout the table. Mugs are a must if you are serving hot cocoa to keep the little guests cozy and warm.
For a Let It Snow themed party, a ‘Build a Snowman’ Station sounded more than appropriate. I purchased bits and pieces, such as mini hats, scarves, snowman body and arms, and mittens. I even found a corncob pipe at my local craft store! This ‘building a snowman’ activity is an easy & quick idea to keep the little ones entertained. Even the adults are going to want to join in on the fun!
