A Sugar Plum Soiree

    I absolutely LOVE the holidays and all the wonderfully magical things that come along with it.  I have always adored the story of the Nutcracker and knew that styling a party around this theme was a must do, so when my daughter fell in love this past year with a book called Tallulah’s Nutcracker, I knew this would be the perfect theme for her 6th birthday party!

Mingle & Jingle Christmas Card Addressing Luncheon

Is it just me, or are you always frantically addressing your Christmas cards a couple days before Christmas along with the million other things you still need to get done?  This year I decided to take a little stress out of the Holiday season and invite some girlfriends over for a Mingle & Jingle Christmas Card Addressing Party!  A Ladie's Luncheon seemed perfect!  It could even take place during a weekday while all the kiddos are in school.  You can address your Christmas cards, laugh and chat, all while eating  yummy food and treats!  Sounds like a win, win for all!!

Midsummer Night Soiree

How to Host a Magical Midsummer Night Soiree Birthday Party!

 This year my daughter was turning 14 years old and insisted her party be sophisticated and mature with only a subtle theme.  I definitely had my work cut out for me!  I am so used to designing parties for younger children where the more fun details, the better. 

After much thought and consideration, we ultimately decided on a evening soiree with a theme based on Shakespeare's,  A Midsummer Night's Dream. It was mature yet quite magical and would include serving the guests a lovely 3 course dinner, an enchanting dessert table, a fun flower crown activity and a viewing of the movie Strange Magic which is an animated movie based on the same Shakespearean play!

St. Patrick's Day Coloring Play-date!

How to Host a Coloring Play-date!

 If your kiddos are like my daughter, then coloring is where it's at!
Miss Talula loves, loves, loves to color!  So that is exactly the activity I chose for her play-date.  And since it's almost St. Patrick's Day... what better theme to go along with it?!

Coloring is one of the simplest of activities to prepare for.  Just run off a few adorable coloring pages and buy a few packs of crayons and that's pretty much it.  But as simple as it is , the kids seem to be entertained for hours!

 The decor was pretty simple to put together.  I used my daughter's cute little white table and chairs,  placed it in front of a white backdrop and hung the most darling tissue tassel garland from Glamfete.  It added just the right amount pizzazz! I dressed everything up with some cute sparkly large and small shamrocks from target's dollarspot, of course!
I kept the treats simple too and just served some cute rainbow sprinkled cupcakes along with some "green" milk for fun! The kiddos thought is was great!  Those darling drink containers with screw on lids from TomKat Studio are perfect for the littles to hold without spills!

And lastly, the favor.  I always have to have a cute favor to complement each party and these certainly did!
They were the cutest little mason jars filled with rainbow sugar coated candy strips sitting on a cloud of mini marshmallows.  They were finished off with some Baker's twine and the most darling little tag that read " Jar O'rainbows".  How sweet is that!

Now, take a look at the rest of the cute party pics below.....

Thanks for stopping by!
Now go have yourself a super easy and fun coloring play-date!
