4th Birthday Party!

Ahoy mateys! This past weekend was S's 4th birthday. His birthday was on sunday but we had the birthday party on saturday. I say this every year, and will probably say it for the rest of my life, but I can't believe he's 4 already!!! The party was a great success, but I have to admit that the planning process (i.e. the two days before the party) was rather stressful. We're still settling down in the new house, it's neither fully furnished nor fully decorated, but we were getting ready to have 20 guests in the house (and that was me trying to keep it as small as possible).

Yellow Owl Workshop products are the definition of whimsical and fun, and the same can be said about their party kits. You all know I plan parties and even though it's on a much smaller scale now, when I do plan them, I think about everything.

This blog post is a little late, but definitely worth the wait. We went to Max's first birthday party last month and had a blast. His mom (and my good friend) had told me she wanted the theme to be nautical/water-related because Max loves the water, and as always, she and her husband threw a fantastic party with lots of wonderful details. So even though I knew some of her plans, she still managed to exceed my expectations and I had fun seeing all the things they made! The menu consisted of fish-n-chips, clam chowder, goldfish crackers and ice-cream cone cupcakes.

Zoe's Baby Shower

It is exactly two months away from my little sister's due date, and we are getting more and more excited about meeting our nephew/S's baby cousin! This past weekend was Zoe's (my little sister's) baby shower, and it was a great success thanks to her friends (some from VA and NY) and colleagues who are just a blast to be around! The theme was "confetti". I wanted it to feel like a celebration, and even though we know it's a BOY, I wanted to keep it gender-neutral. I love that confetti doesn't restrict the color palette at all.

Making it Lovely: Crafty Like A Fox Party

This baby shower theme created by Nicole of Making it Lovely is yep, lovely! Who doesn't love a fox-themed-anything really, but I love how she took the theme and didn't make it too literal. There were foxes here and there, but her color palette was inspired by a table cloth by Rifle (which I LOVE ofcourse!).

Today is my brother-in-law's birthday! Happy birthday JL!! Birthdays should always have balloons because they just make everything more festive and more fun. I'm sharing some eye-candy via Pinterest with you today. Balloons can be used in so many different ways, and I've personally used all sorts of balloons in weddings and parties - from polka dotted ones, to heart shaped ones, to big round ones, to writing on a big balloon.

I've never gotten a pinata before. They look really fun, and I've seen lots of DIY pinata projects, but nothing really motivated me to get one. It's probably because the little dude is still kind of little. But after seeing these adorable pinatas by Whack Pinateria, I can't wait to get one for his next birthday. I mean, I always figured you can make anything into a pinata, but some of these ideas just never occurred to me, and I love it all! Art truly comes in so many different forms, and I love being surprised.

Can you believe it's November already? The fun thing about the holiday season is that even though all the actual holidays are on certain dates, the whole month is dedicated to celebrating that holiday. Now that Halloween is officially over, all the store decorations will slowly transform to celebrate Thanksgiving. The little elves don't only work on Christmas ya know? :) As the little guy's birthday draws closer, I'm already racking my brain trying to pick a theme and plan a party in my head.

This has got to be one the most detailed and coolest birthday parties ever! For all the parents who have a little one into cowboys and the wild west, saddle up! This is one party to live up to. I can't imagine how much time was put into all the little details, it's any kid's dream! I wish I was invited!!

Back To School Party

That's how much some children love to go to school! I remember I used to get so excited at the end of the summer, and the night before school started I'd put in all my new pencils, eraser, ruler in my new pencil case and I'd have a hard time falling asleep because I couldn't wait to go to school the next morning! This classroom-themed party would be right up my alley. Lots of ideas for decorations and projects: think blackboards, books, pencils, apples and favor lunch boxes filled with school-related goodies!
