Heart Valentine's Day Picnic Party

Today I am sharing a picnic Valentine's Day party that I created and that was featured in the 2015 Spring issue of Everyday Party Magazine. It was so fun just sitting on the grass enjoying lunch and desserts while relaxing.

I filled these mini dessert shooters with strawberry yogurt and taped a cute straw that I cut down to size, they were a huge hit with my sons they thought the little straw was funny.

Our picnic place setting was just perfect, inside the gable boxes was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and a mini fruit cup. Those drinking cups were actually the inspiration for the decorations, I just thought they were so cute and I loved the colors.

Do you have any plans for Valentine's day?

 This tin can robot used as our centerpiece was so simple to make, he was inspired by one that my sweet friend Maria from Maria Healy Photography did for her sons Monsters, Aliens, and Robots, oh my! birthday party.

 Fruit is always a HUGE plus with my boys.

 I had so much fun creating the robot juice boxes and they were so easy to create, all I needed was juice boxes, Nerds candy, Starbursts for the feet, googley eyes, and a little bit of aluminum foil for antennas and arms.

These were cards kits that I created so my boys would have an activity to do, they had half of sheet of card stock folded in half, a robot die cut I created, foam stickers, and heart foam stickers.

Here is the card my oldest son created.

I hope you all find inspiration with this fun Robot Valentine's Party. How do you celebrate Valentine's Day?

My first blog conference: BASH 2015

Earlier this month I attended my first ever blog conference BASH. BASH is a conference for party planners or party bloggers. I can not tell you how fun this conference was for me from the networking, education from the AMAZING speakers, and the awesome parties. The whole time from leaving California until returning home was full of wonderful and memorable experiences. It was definitely an adventure to remember and I can not wait until BASH 2016 you can count on me being there.
In the days leading up to BASH I was pretty nervous because this was the first time I would leave for more than an afternoon without my 2 boys and my husband and also because I was going to be in the presence of so many talented party people. Everyone I met was so nice and friendly, they made me feel so comfortable and the first day all my nerves went away. I did take a couple of pictures while I was there so here they are :) Enjoy!


First thing Thursday morning a bunch of us headed out to the TomKat Studio Shop, OMG her store is full of so many beautiful party products.

 Kim was such a wonderful host, we were greeted with this amazing spread!!!
This was all of us at the shop, thank you to Krista from Hoopla Events for organizing the TomKat Studio Shop field trip ;)


 Thursday night after registration there was a Welcome Party where we got to network and do some activities.
 Name Badge Station by Petite Party Studio
 Bath Salt Station by Paging Supermom
 Mouse Pad Craft station thanks to See Vanessa Craft and Online Fabric Store
We also got to "gamble" a little thanks to Vegas2U, knowing that it wasn't real money made me a little adventurous at the blackjack table LOL.

Here are some more pictures just at random.

After party in our suite ;)
 We got to decorate mugs thanks to Elmer's 
 My friends Laura from Laura's little Party participated in the tabletop competition and here is a glimpse at her table.
We had the pleasure of taking a class taught by Jenny Cookies :)
 Loved hanging out with these girls 
 Michelle, Laura, and Arlene are some amazing talented women and I had the pleasure of driving out with them and hanging out the whole time we were there it was great to get to know them on a more personal level and let me tell you we have some adventures to tell...LOL!! LOVE YOU GIRLS!!!!!
This fabulous woman right here is Michelle the founder of BASH the one who brought us all together under one roof and pulled off an amazing conference. Thank you Michelle!!!!!

By the way did I mention I was the winner of a business assessment and website design from Brand{u} WOOHOO!!!!!

Wow can you believe Christmas is 4 days away crazy how fast the days are just flying by. Today I am sharing a cheerful Christmas tablescape that you can use for the kids breakfast or maybe they can sit down have some hot chocolate and cookies while watching a Christmas movie.

 Granola bites in little Christmas cups add a cute touch.
Store bought cupcakes and cookies make set up a little easier.



I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas.

Kids Thanksgiving Table

Happy Thanksgiving week!! Today I want to share a super easy kids Thanksgiving table that you can quickly put together before your guests arrive. For this table I used coloring books as the place settings instead of plates. This way the kids can sit down and color while waiting for their food.

 I found these coloring/activity books in the Target dollar section a little while back so if you can't find them anymore you can print out free coloring pages found online and make your own book. I used some washi tape to stick the box of crayons onto the book.

I also used washi tape to stick the straw to milk bottles and stuck a cute little turkey die cut to them. I embellished each spoon with some polka dot ribbon.

Hope my kids Thanksgiving table has inspired you to create your own on Thanksgiving Day for the kids to enjoy. Have you began any Thanksgiving prep yet?

Muahaha happy Halloween!! Today I am sharing a kid friendly Halloween party that you can easily put together.
Creativities Galore: Kid Friendly Halloween Party

I mean look at this banner how cute is it and it isn't scary at all perfect for the little kiddos. To make the banner I used the Witch with Broom, Pumpkins with Crow and Leaves, and Spider dies.

 The cupcakes were placed in these adorable spider leg stands and topped with a cupcake topper that I made using some black yarn and phrases that I cut out from the Halloween backgrounds embossing folders.

 I made napkin rings also using the Halloween shadows decorative strip.
Creativities Galore: Spooky Milk Bottle
The bottle labels were made using the Halloween set debossing folders. I added a little black ink to the folder before placing the paper so it would add a bit of a shadow.

Here are some things to do so your guest can have fun
  • Paint or carve pumpkins
  • Costume contest
  • Cupcake eating contest (hands behind their backs)
  • Dance contest
  • Crafts (draw haunted house, Frankenstein puppet)

I hope our kid friendly Halloween party has inspired you to have you own party.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!!
