DIY cookie stencil hack

I do not profess myself to be anything of a cookie expert, so please take this tutorial with a grain of salt. (or powdered sugar, if you will) I do, however, like to save money when I can! I love a good deal, and this hack was waaay cheaper than purchasing an airbrush machine and all the accoutrements it would need. Even if I do make cookies at … [Read more...]

avas panda party

We just wrapped Ava's 6th birthday party and it was so cute and fun! She chose a panda theme and I love how simple and fun it was! Black and white is a fun graphic punch and I added some pink in because Ava loves pink! Also I had these flowers that my friends Aimee and Erinn made for a girls camp banquet last year and I took home because I couldn't … [Read more...]

sadie’s harry potter party

Earlier this year, Sadie read the first Harry Potter book. Then promptly sped through the rest of the series-and then started them over again once she finished! I am so proud lol but seriously parenting win right there, since I read the series as a teen and devoured them as well. (like most of the world) So, it was a pretty clear winner for her … [Read more...]

Greatest Showman Circus Party

If you're anything like my family, you've had The Greatest Showman soundtrack on repeat for the last while-my kids adore the songs! They are super catchy and singalongable (totes a word), and when Charlotte mentioned she wanted a party with that theme, I JUMPED. I've always wanted to do a circus party and this seemed like the perfect way to do … [Read more...]

Jack’s newsies party

I absolutely LOVED  planning this Newsies themed party. The 90's Disney movie was my favorite movie growing up (still in my top 5), and my friend Megan and I would watch it every single sleepover we had-and had it memorized! I also was lucky enough to see the Broadway version when it was on tour and loved it almost as much as the movie! (my girls … [Read more...]

I honestly had SO much fun planning this party for Ava. She had this theme picked out ever since the live action Beauty and the Beast was released, and was thinking up ideas with me and planning the goodies since then! Let's start with the invitation! (also, some affiliate links in this post-as per usual with my party posts! Thanks!) I threw … [Read more...]

easy and cute donut party

Sadie asked for a donut party this year, which I was ALL ABOUT. (I mean, seriously...gimmee all the donuts plz) It was a just friends party, and so it was a lot more low maintenance for me. I ordered this adorable sprinkles invite from this great etsy shop! Hung up my ruffle shower curtain that I love to use for a backdrop, with a pastel … [Read more...]

MOANA themed birthday party

Ah, Moana....the latest hit from Disney with the amazing songs and adorable characters...you might have heard of it. ;-) Charlotte was dead set on having a Moana party and since I've been wanting to have some sort of luau themed party for years I was completely on board! As per usual, I headed to Amazon for a lot of my party supplies, so expect … [Read more...]

My first boy party folks! Well, for my own boy! I've helped with a few of my friends parties but it's so fun to do my own son's! I figured, with the name Jack I HAD to do a lumberJACK party!! I had so much fun with this theme, and I decided on the theme before last Christmas, so I was able to collect lots of buffalo plaid items, since it was so … [Read more...]
