I am a mom of a wonderful 5 year old girl and newborn boy in Corona, CA. I work full time and make cakes, cupcakes and other treats on the side along with party/high chair banners and mouse ears.

Toy Story Themed Nursery

Lincoln’s Toy Story nursery was originally a playroom so it was a pretty simple transition to make it into a nursery by adding extra artwork and decor. I made several of the items for his room to make it more special. It helped with Toy Story 4 coming out to add different touches
I love gallery walls so I made one over the dresser. The Pixar Ball, “I love you to Infinity and Beyond” sign, “L” block and the banner were handmade by me and I added prints and birth stat sign to it that I got on Etsy. I found the red swing arm lamp on amazon and it was the perfect touch along with the toys. Hamm is actually a piggy bank I found at Target.
On the wall where the crib is, it was painted with Grandmas Sweater by Benjamin Moore and I used cloud stencils to paint in the clouds. I found army men decals on Etsy to add to both walls and printed out Andy’s artwork from Pixar Planet to put on the bulletin board. I made the Etch a Sketch sign which is one of my favorite parts of the room. I got a white frame and painted it red, added milk bottle caps I painted white and hand drew “Magic Etch a Sketch screen” with a gold paint pen. Then I used silver poster board to put in the frame and wrote Lincoln’s name like it was on an etch a sketch.
I couldn’t find Toy Story sheets I liked for the crib so I got a space print and also have a cow print as another one along with the red duster
On the opposite wall I found shelves from Hobby Lobby that were unfinished and spray painted them blue and hung them on the wall like Andy had in the movie. We already had the prints previously and the artwork behind the door we found from a local artist.
For the sign on the door I used Pixar Planet and designed it the same way but changed the names. I loved doing this room and I hope my son will love it just as much!

Moana Birthday Party

Haley’s Moana Birthday Party

My daughter, Haley, is obsessed with Moana so we decided to do a Moana themed birthday party for her 3rd birthday. I got a lot of inspiration from Pinterest including different food items to serve.  We had a lunch party with Hawaiian Chicken on Hawaiian rolls, BBQ Hawaiian Meatballs, Veggies, Caesar and Pasta Salad and Croissant Sandwiches.  We made googly eyes on toothpicks for the Croissant sandwiches so they were like Tamatoa from Moana. We also made Heart of Tefiti Juice by combining green and blue Hawaiian Punches with pineapple juice.
The recipe for the Slow Cooker Hawaiian Chicken came from http://www.lemontreedwelling.com/2016/07/slow-cooker-hawaiian-chicken.html and it was a huge hit.  I cooked the chicken in a slow cooker separately then added the sauce that was cooked on the stovetop at the very end so it didnt get watered down.
I made her cake and cupcakes and made fondant cupcake toppers to look like the Heart of Tefiti.  We hired an amazing Moana to come to the party, she sang songs, taught the kids to hula dance, did nail and face painting and took pictures with everyone.  The favors included Moana stickers and temporary tattoos, a Moana stamp and a baggie of jelly bellies, goldfish and gummy sharks all inside a Moana cup.
For the photo backdrop I bought a bamboo tablecloth and made a floral balloon arch.  I used a tutorial from http://www.greenweddingshoes.com/diy-floral-balloon-arch.
I used her existing toys to decorate the buffet including a Kakamora music set and Moana, Maui and Hei Hei POP! Funkos.
I bought some paper products on Etsy including a Kakamora welcome sign for the front door and Moana birthday invitations from StudioBeeDesignCp https://www.etsy.com/shop/StudioBeeDesignCo

Mary Poppins Baby Shower Dessert Table

Mary Poppins Baby Shower

My family and friends threw me a Mary Poppins themed baby shower that started with my finding a perfect Mary Poppins cake on Pinterest.  I designed the dessert table and my friend helped with the backdrop and got the kites and banner.  It was the perfect shower, all that I could have asked for and a great way to celebrate our upcoming arrival of Haley :)
