Sneak Peek: Abby&#..

Here is a sneak peek of my daughter's 6th birthday party currently in the works. So I tried last year to have a candy themed party (for the 2nd time, she had one when she was 2 and LOVED it!), but she was way into Tinkerbell last year so went that route (much to my dismay, but it is her birthday not mine!). I know there are a ton of darling sweet treats/candy themed parties out there and after … [Read more...]

Can you tell me ho..

Okay, so I have to admit, I am not the biggest fan of character birthdays but when your toddler LOVES Elmo (or other furry character), not much to do but go along with it! I didn't want to do your standard party store Elmo party, so I opted for a bit more of a graphic version, utilizing red, orange and white & polka dots as my inspiration (along with Elmo of course!).   Elmo Cupcakes: … [Read more...]


While working on our Thanksgiving plans (we are hosting this year!), I realized it is quickly approaching, I know we haven't yet even reached Halloween, but the few weeks in between seem to come and go so quickly. Our family loves to "experiment" and share new recipes at the holidays. We even host an annual Thanksgiving bake-off. This year the guys are doing it!! I think I shall make a back up or … [Read more...]

After a couple of requests for more pictures of Payton's party, here they are! The party decorations are available in my shop: Baseball Party Package.

Pumpkin Carving Ti..

Jack -O-Lantern Preservation Tips:   If you live in a dry climate, after carving, soak your pumpkin in cold water, allowing it to absorb water. This prevents premature shriveling. If your pumpkin begins to shrivel, you can resoak or spray with a squirt bottle.   If you live in a wet climate (like me!) and moisture is not the problem but the enemy (moldy pumpkins, not so pretty!). You can … [Read more...]

In June my little boy turned 3 and it was apparent we would be having a baseball themed party. Everything he played turned into a baseball bat & ball; in fact even everything he ate--carrots were bats, peas were balls, hot dogs were bats, buns were rolled into balls, when I say everything, I mean everything! As it was near the 4th of July, I went for an all American, red, white and blue & … [Read more...]
