A Halloween party created for the neighbourhood moms and kids. This party was cute with some spook but not enough to scare.
A ‘Shabby Chic’ first birthday party for our precious Baby E!
Vintage inspired, afternoon tea party honoring Carrie and baby Charlotte, who is due to arrive September 27th!
Instead of a brief blessing in front of the church, Griffin’s dedication took place at our home among close family and friends. We wanted to center the event around God while also providing food and entertainment for the guests.
Simple little party to celebrate a baby boy’s Baptism.
A construction-themed 2nd birthday party for my son, Luke!
Dr. Seuss-themed playtime party to celebrate Dr. Seuss’ birthday. Seuss snacks were served and lots of “props” including Dr. Seuss books and plush toys were arranged for a photo op. Each little guest received a framed Dr. Seuss quote that I designed wrapped in chevron paper.
I wanted to create a beautiful 1st birthday party for my little girl that was a little bit vintage and really girly with lots of pink and turquoise. I basically made all the decorations myself and baked and iced everything I could think of that was sweet!
The party took place at the backyard of a beautiful Greek restaurant on a hot summer day. The guests were around 100 (80 adults and 20 children).
You don’t have to spend a fortune to have a great party! Sometimes you just need a little imagination. Like I do with many of the projects on my blog Thrive 360 Living, I always make sure to remember that when it comes to kids, they just want something that’s fun.
Oh Happy Day was a party for a colorful little girl on a warm spring day. The sun, clouds, and heart-shaped raindrops were incorporated throughout the house, accented by tons of bright colors and traditional birthday party decorations. We envisioned an old-fashioned home birthday party, updated with fun decorations and the now mandatory bounce house.
I am constantly searching out unique childrenswear looks for my blog, Mama’s Heels, and couldn’t resist the urge to incorporate a playful design aesthetic into Anna’s special day.
I chose this nautical theme after deciding that we wanted to have my daughter, Eliza’s, 1st birthday party on the lake in our neighborhood. With a lakeside setting, a preppy pink and navy nautical celebration seemed to be the perfect fit! After dinner, our little party guests built their own sailboats. My dad cut all the wood and my mom made the sails with leftover fabric from the backdrop. It was so cute to see a table of girls and one little boy using their hammer and nails to build sailboats. We then set sail in the lake! It was such a beautiful night and the perfect evening to celebrate our sweet girl!
Colorful, fun, and bright event that brings the childhood board game to life!
This Two-Too Cute Baby Shower was in honor of a Mother to twin girls, who were born 2 months early, which made it even more special to celebrate. Since Juliana and Isabella had already arrived, I made sure to incorporate some sort of personalization throughout the theme. The decor was super feminine and all things girly. Rhinestones, pink tulle, gold glittered letters and butterflies decorated french dress forms and signage.
One of my good friends asked me to help organise her little daughter’s first birthday party. We had so much fun planning the birthday together. Everything was DIY including the snowflake decorations and candy buffet. I created the candy buffet and focused all the food around Winter and Christmas themes including ‘Jingle Jelly’. The snowman pops were so easy to make. I used some cute red striped paper straws, large marshmallows and dipped them in white chocolate. I used an edible pen to add the eyes and smile. I used a snowflake die cut to create all the candy labels.
A first birthday party for my little girl Summer.
One of our most memorable moments of 2012 was our daughter, Harper Rose’s 1st Birthday Celebration! Although a nod to her first 365 days of youth, we wanted this celebration to be about all of us, and the fact that we made it through the first year of parenthood!
Her birthday is in the dead of summer here in Arizona so options are limited! I began brainstorming a few days before the event… HA! Kidding- I pretty much started brainstorming our first night in the hospital. If you can’t tell by now, that kind of move is all my style! We came up with a Dive- In Movie theme where our adult friends could lounge in the pool and stay cool and our friends with kids could enjoy the movie on the big screen; we were thinking beautiful summer night, huge projection movie screen, swimming, floaties, movie candy and concessions and ice cold Kool-aid (and adult refreshments)!
