1. I mean we all know that food themes are the best! Pretzels in all their twistiness and golden-brown-ness are one of the most popular food items, and for good reason. They just look so... GOOD. I love how simple yet eye-catching this pretzel themed party is. You know, all it takes are pretzels. (image above via Minted)

Gender Reveal Party

I remember when we found out whether we were having a boy or a girl, I lay on the hospital bed in a dark room and the ultra-sound technician was trying to keep the mood light by making jokes and being sarcastic. He made a random comment about the baby before we found out the gender, and in his sentence he said the word "HE" and I didn't let that go. I was like "you said he! you said he!" and he tried to cover it up. We were very very excited when we found out we were having a boy.

5th Birthday Party!

We had just returned from our winter trip to Japan, and it was only one week away from his fifth birthday. My parents (S's grandma and grandpa from Taiwan) came to visit a few days after we got back home. So it was all kinds of crazies, and that coupled with jetlag meant that I knew I wouldn't be able to plan a party. But then I've always thrown him birthday parties and he was turning FIVE. I mean, how often does that happen?! Once. That's right.

If you haven't noticed already, I'm a simple clean-look kinda gal. I'm all for colors and details, but if they can be simply stated then they speak volumes. These beautiful cakes designed by Peace of Cake Design demonstrate just that, simple designs that catch everyone's attentions! I love them so much this will be the way to go for every birthday from now on. 

Happy Friday!

Little Red Riding Hood Party

I know that when I post our little guy's birthday parties, it's more appealing for those of you who have boys. So today, I was thinking to myself "If I had a girl, what kind of a birthday party would I want to throw for her?". I've thought about this before, and I've thought about a twist on a Hello Kitty theme or something strawberry related, but my favorite idea is probably the little red riding hood theme. It's because of the colors and the setting.

This year, we're going to go trick or treating with a few preschool friends. But before we head out, we're having a small potluck so we fill everyone's bellies before knocking from door to door. I'm thinking about making some Halloween-inspired dishes that are both fun to look at and yummy to eat. And as always, I opt for cute Halloween spooks and not the scary and gruesome. Here are some of the things I might be making from around the web:

The one year old curse attacked Micah right before his birthday party too! He had a fever on the day-of, but he was a trooper! First birthdays are mainly a celebration of the parents making it as one year parents anyway right? He won't remember that we worked hard to make his birthday party as cute as can be, or that we were screaming when the wind blew the giant balloons into the icing of the cake, or that he was on cloud 9 petting TWO adorable dogs at the same time at his own party. But still, we make the party as cute as can be.

What's a party without any balloons? Ok maybe that's not entirely true, but they are a fun addition! And these days, a lot of photoshoots involve balloons too because they add a fun pop of color, and they seriously come in all sorts of colors and shapes and forms now. We all know about regular latex balloons, you know, the ones you can get at a grocery store. And lately, everyone's been introduced to round latex balloons which comes in many sizes. But I wanted to show you all these other kinds because there are so many great ways to use balloons!
