Mommy & Me Valentine’s Day Party

Love is in the air & I swoon over all the ways that we can celebrate the important people in our life this month. Whether it is a special date night with your main man or a Galentine’s soiree, I think showing a little extra compassion & love is what this world needs right now.  And now we get to celebrate Valentine’s Day Mommy & Me style! We threw together this sweet and simple backyard Mommy & Me party for our boys and to of course celebrate love and friendship! Beautiful paper lanterns hung across strung lights added en enchanting atmosphere to the evening and really was a simple way to dress up the party.  So grab your bestie & all your tiny humans to dress up and have just one more excuse to eat cake!

It’s A Circus Over Here 1st Birthday Boy Party

I have always loved birthdays, so when it came time to throw our first baby his 1st birthday I knew I wanted it to be perfect. I wanted to keep it low stress and make a lot of the decor my self but also make sure that it was baby friendly with bold, bright colors and lots of fun! Some people say that the 1st birthday is just for the parents, but I gave our son Ryker lots of new objects to entertain and spark curiosity. Babies love shiny things and since it was his ‘golden’ birthday I decided to add gold details. I love how it turned out and we had so much fun celebrating this little boy’s first year with us! My advice would be to not stress, make the party what you want. Set some goals and then go for it!
