Parisian Poodle Party

I recently had the opportunity to do the most adorable party for one of my dear friends that I have known since I was in elementary school.  I LOVE doing parties for my girlfriends little girls.  Especially since I can remember our parties when we were younger.  Just to give you an idea, let's travel back a few years!
That is me, second from the left and Tina third from the left!

Tina's daughter Daphne, who is turning 8 years old, was having her birthday party at a local pet store and we decided to "glam" it up and do a Parisian Poodle theme!  LOTS of pink and so pretty!

We got the guests excited with this adorable invite!

What a gorgeous dessert table!

Love all the details and all the pink, pink, pink!  Tina, you did an amazing job and I know Daphne LOVED it all!

Here's the sweet birthday girl and her pretty Mommy!

Happy 60th Birthday

I primarily do children's parties, bridal and baby showers, etc, but LOVE when I get asked to do invitations for grown up parties.  After all, shouldn't grown ups have fun invites and party decor too?

A few months ago, my Uncle Mark turned 60 (He's actually my hubby's uncle, but that's just logistics) .   It was only fitting that he have a big bash to celebrate!  Mark and his wife Peggy are very special to me.  All of my aunts and uncles live out of town and every since Drew and I met and I moved to Baltimore they have taken me under their wing.  Over the years, we have become such good friends, I know I can always count on them. They ADORE my girls as much as my girls adore them!

Mark is a huge Baltimore Orioles fan so that is the theme that we went with.  I did the invites and the party decor and he and Peggy pulled from his collection of O's memorabilia to decorate their house for the party.  Everything looked amazing and the party was so much fun!

I designed the invite to look just like an Orioles ticket

Favors of roasted peanuts

And even Cal Ripken made a guest appearance

Sweet Customers Parties

I love it when my customers send me party pics and I get the chance to see all the creative and fun things that they have come up with.  I have so many files of pics and just decided to bite the bullet and start sharing!

Back in early summer, I premiered our newest collection, "Berry Sweet". LOVE this collection, so perfect for a girly, fun summer birthday party.   Amanda from Mandy Ann's Clothing was the first to use this collection for her daughter Brynlee's 6th birthday party.  She did an amazing job putting everything together.  It is just adorable!

LOVE how she used the favor tags on the mason jars!

Have I told you lately how much I love what I do?  There is so much satisfaction in seeing the biggest smile on a child (or a grown-ups) face when they see what you have created for their party.  EVERYONE deserves that extra special party and I love being a part of that!  It is really super special when you can do that for a friend.  

Mona is a wonderful friend.  Her daughter, Sia goes to school with my daughters and they have become such good buddies.  They LOVE all things pink and princess.  So when Mona asked me to make some goodies for Sia's 4th birthday party, I knew it would have to be special.  Sia LOVES Little Mermaid, but especially Ursula the Sea Witch!

Love the favor boxes

And the treasure chests for the boys

And here's Ursula!
 What a great place for a party.  Pool side for all the little mermaids!

And here is the sweet birthday princess herself!  Happy Birthday Sia!
