All week, I’ve been sharing my Easy, Last-Minute Christmas Ideas. (See How to Make a Greenery & Ornament Swag, How to Style Your Dining Room, and How to Make a Christmas Ornament Garland if you’ve missed the other posts.) But today, I’m sharing my Mock Martha Christmas Cookie Trifle.
I’m sure you’ve seen this idea loads of places, and if I knew how to figure out who came up with it first, I’d gladly link to them. But this was my first year trying a Christmas Ornament Garland, so I thought I’d document the process for you. It is ridiculously easy. So easy, that […]
I thought it might be helpful to illustrate my thought-process in creating a table setting. This is my family’s Christmas table, but you can use this same process for any party table. It’s really all about layering, and deciding when you have enough.
Today, I’m so excited to be back on the blog! It’s been a long time!! Before Thanksgiving, I was overwhelmed with Party Kit orders — which is a good problem, I’m not complaining. Then we went on vacation and I actually took a vacation instead of working every night, so that was a total treat. […]
Welcome to the third tutorial for my Zombie Princess Party! Don’t miss the super-easy how-tos for the zombie soda bottles and Princess Creepy Teeth, our dining table centerpiece. Today, I’m showing you how to make “bloody” napkins. Do zombies technically bleed? I’ll admit: I didn’t do a lot — well, any — research into zombie […]
Welcome to the second tutorial for my Zombie Princess Party! See the first tutorial — zombie soda bottles — here. Today, I’ll show you how to make Princess Creepy Teeth, our dining table centerpiece. It’s really easy, and you need no crafting skills.
I didn’t have party printables for the Zombie Princess Party. (This sometimes happens when you dream up a wacky theme.) So that meant it was up to me to get creative with the decorative details. This week, I’ll share with you tutorials for my Zombie Princess Soda Bottles, the “bloody” hand print napkins, and Princess […]
If your kids love to trick or treat with their besties, try inviting the gang over for a pre-trick or treating Zombie Princess Party! I’ll show you how. (You could even invite the boys, ’cause you know they will like zombies!)
It’s Freebie Friday and I’ve found 20 more free Halloween printables that I can’t wait to share with you. I am loving these — especially the banners. I think if I had to choose one type of printable to use for a party, it would definitely be a banner. They are so flexible and offer […]
Yesterday, I mentioned an interview I was preparing for this summer. Today, you get to listen in! The interview was part of Monique Brown’s Total Woman Summit, and of course it’s free to you.
Back in August, I was preparing for an interview, not really knowing what I’d be asked. I was brainstorming questions about party planning so I could jot down some answers. And then I had a horrible thought: “What if she asks me about being hired as a party planner…” Because — yikes — that’s not […]
I honestly never thought I’d be inspired by black rats, but I suppose stranger things have happened at the dollar store. As I was checking out with a basket of 18 toy rats, the cashier looked up at me and said, “Lord, honey, what’re you gonna do with all those rats?” She looked very skeptical […]
I am loving the new free Halloween printables coming out this year! So clean and modern. Makes me want to have another Halloween party! Here are 25 of my favorite free Halloween printables. Maybe you can use them at your party!
Today, I’m over at Cupcake Wishes & Birthday Dreams with the tutorial for my 3-D black rat Halloween art. I’m thrilled to participate in Keisha’s annual 13 Days of Handmade Halloween! (It started Monday, October 6, so don’t miss out on any of the great posts from your favorite party bloggers!) Missed the rest of […]
So if you saw my Black and White (and Rats!) Halloween Party on Monday, I teased that I also styled this party with an alternate bunting. I loved the black rats hanging by their tails in the original bunting — it appeals to my slightly twisted sense of humor, and I think every party should […]
