So I have a question for the general party public, what do you do with all the left over candy from the amazing candy buffets that I see? Do people really clean you out when they fill up their take home boxes? Anyway, I just have been wondering for ever especially since I always have food left over after my parties.

So here is the food table. I was pleased with the way it all came together. I think I maybe have to much going on on the table~thoughts? Like I said in the previous post we had great weather, maybe too great. It got to be a little warm and things started melting so it didn't look pretty the whole party because I had to bring things in.

Napkin rings

I ordered colored bread from our local bakery to match the party for the chicken and egg salad sandwiches. I think i should have said pale pink and pale orange because I got bright on both accounts. But it did match really well.

Always have to have cupcakes!

Water bottle labels. I can't believe I didn't get a shot of the other two designs I had, oh well.

So glad there was some salsa left over, this is one of my all time favorites.

Kate (guest of honor) brought a yummy berry trifle.

I spyed these dipped Oreo's on How Does She a while back and put them in my "must try folder". They turned out super cute, then I brought them outside and they melted in minutes.

My original idea was to do the dessert shots in shot glasses but I couldn't find the right shot glasses or substitute for that matter. So I used what I had, wine glasses. I did two different desserts in them. One was chocolate mousse on a brownie with whip cream the other lemon curd on angel food cake with whip cream. Both yummy!

Fun way to add a little more color and some birds as well.

Kate was such a huge help for her own Sprinkle. She and I got together to make the favors for the guests to take home. We made these cute felt birds in the coordinating colors of the Sprinkle.

So glad you stopped by to see the party. Hope you enjoyed it and will come again.

Tweet Decorations

I had the pleasure this weekend of hosting a baby sprinkle for a good friend and neighbor of mine who is having her first girl. When deciding on a theme for this "Sprinkle" I was drawn to the bird theme that is popular right now. When I asked her about that and what she thought she was thrilled. As it turns out she is doing the babies room in a bird theme so this was perfect.

When I was gathering ideas I came across a lot of different options but most of them were more out "doorsy" looking bird parties, I wanted more of a crafty, non-realistic look. The colors I found from this digital color paper pack and I loved them immediately. (because of my camera you may not be able to tell really well what the colors are, sorry. they are red, hot pink, brown and a melon orange)

I love having parties outside. I also hate it. Love the atmosphere and nice weather. Hate the unpredictability and wind. But I decided to brave it and hope for the best. So we held this in my backyard and we were blessed with sunshine and low winds.

This was the sign across my walk to the front door.

The gift table and wish tree

The flowers are clips and were the prize for the ONE game we did.

Tissue poms every where. They were put to good use after the party in the baby's room.

I had these birds everywhere as well.

My daughter set up the chairs for me. It looks like were having a meeting of some kind, she does love order.

This is the food table pre-food and the banner I made for this fun occasion.

I also made these strings of circle garlands to hang in the awnings. They were super simple but brought a lot of color to the space.



I am in Pom heaven at the moment. I finished cutting and fluffing my poms for the "sprinkle" this weekend and I 've got them all on the bed down stairs. Every time I walk into the room it makes me giggle, sometimes I just go peek so I can. I can't even tell you how excited I am for this party. It just makes me happy. : )


"Tweet" invitations

These are the invitations that I designed just for this "Sprinkle". I found the digital paper on line and the bird mask as well and the whole party came from there. It was fun to design and I'm still learning, not sure which I love more digital or actual handmade.



I am so excited for this weekend! It's the "Tweet" baby shower I've been prepping for and I am almost ready. Here's a peek at the cupcake toppers I made. Looking forward to posting so much more.


Girls birthday 2009

I have two girls, one is four the other 1. My one year old was born the day after my four year old, three years later. I'm lucky enough that right now they don't mind sharing a party for their birthdays. This past year I was inspired from Kim at The TomKat studio to do a lollipop theme party. I would have LOVED to do this outside but their birthday is in October so no such luck. We just had a small family gathering so I didn't get to do ALL that I would have liked but still this turned out pretty cute.

I found paper lanterns at Michaels in the dollar bins during the summer and knew just what I wanted to do with them. Wrapped in cellophane they make pretty cute suckers.

Each girl got her very own cake.

Had to have the cupcake toppers and wrappers to match.

I was inspired by the rainbow cake I found here to coordinate the colors with the party. It was a fun surprise to find in your cupcake and the kids loved it.

The "thank you's" for everyone to take home were my favorite popcorn balls in the party colors.

I also found a great idea for lollipop cookies. I have found some cute cookies since doing this party that I wish I had found before. Oh well.
It was so fun to do for my girls and I'm looking forward to doing their next birthday already!

The birthday girls: I made their shirts and tutu's for them as well as their bows. I ordered baby legs leg warmer for them as well. Pretty stinkin cute if I do say so myself.
