Something Blue Bridal Shower

A few months ago I created and styled a dessert table for one of my dearest friends for her bridal shower. I've been meaning to share this for a while now, but have been far too busy! The colors for her wedding are navy and white, so I thought the theme Something Blue would go great to tie in her colors. I loved how it turned out.  I'll let the pictures do the talking, the were taken by the amazing Rachel Kate Photography.

Winter Wonderland Baby Shower

Helllloooo everyone! I've been very MIA lately as you can see. The Holidays were so busy and fun and I'm just now getting to blog about this oh so pretty baby shower I styled at the beginning of December. 
I was contacted to style and baby shower and we worked together and decided on a Baby Wonderland shower. Living the Boston area it was the perfect theme for this time of year. I loved how it turned out. 
Not knowing the sex of the baby, I went with silver, white, blue & pink. The colors really complimented each other well. I loved the soft look of them together. 
For the table I used cupcakes, cotton candy, chocolate dipped marshmallows, strawberry whoppers, peppermint marshmallows, Hershey kisses,  and chocolate covered oreos. I also had pink lemonade filled in glass jars and strung a pacifier around it. 
Also used at the party was a guess the gender tree. I created cards for each guest to guess the gender of the baby to be. They were each hung on a white Christmas tree.  Super cute!

Are You Ready For Some Football?


Dylans birthday is at the beginning of October and usually he is talking about his party months and months in advance giving me plenty of time to plan. So this year summer ended, school started, football started and we were so busy! It was two weeks ago he decided he wanted another football party at the house. Two weeks to plan. Yikes! No invitation, nothing planned. Although sometimes that's my favorite time to plan- last minute & under pressure to give him a great party. The weekend begin and mother nature descended a Monsoon on our town. I had the hopes of spray painting a football field as I did last year, but the weather wasn't cooperating. It did however stop for the party. Phew! So the obstacle course bounce house kept the kids entertained along with their pick up football game. 
Starting with the invitation I knew I wanted to design it as a game ticket. I incorporated his team football logo and I loved how it turned out. It fix perfectly in a letter size envelope. I wanted to add a little something extra and remembered I had astro turf from last years party. I cut pieces to go behind the ticket and Stuff in the envelope. On the front of the envelope I placed a large sticker with the saying "are you ready for some football" and the guests' name.
For the party,  I created a fun and yummy treat table for the boys. They actually were afraid to touch it. I had to tell them to dig in! I filled the table with root beers, popcorn, pretzels,  football shaped oreos, football chocolates, chocolate helmets, Hershey kisses, cupcakes and football brownies. 
I also wanted to add a Nacho Station to the party. I thought it would be a fun "tailgate" aspect before the pizza and wings arrived. The Nacho Station consisted of Nachos, Cheese, Salsa & Chili. The boys loved it! 
I also used Green Powerade to to make "Greenwave" punch. Greenwave is the mascot in our town. 
The party was a BIG success and we all had so much fun. I hope you enjoy all the pictures. You can purchase the printable set in my shop here.
