Did you have a favorite Halloween costume as a child? Mine was a witch costume, sewn by my mom. One of my twin girls feels the same way, and has dressed up as a witch for Halloween three times. (I have no sewing skills, but I can shop with the best of them.)
Some time last year, my husband was outside washing the van, and my girls went out to watch him, play, and get all wet. They were entertained for hours, and it was all so simple. It reminded me that it really doesn’t take a lot to make kids happy. And, putting them outside is one […]
Today, I’m thrilled to welcome Tracy Allen of Sweet Peach Paperie back to the blog, sharing her twin daughters’ darling mermaids 5th birthday party! (You can see Tracy’s Sea Turtle Twins Birthday Party here.)
My twins are now ten, which is just crazy to think about. I’m ready to shrink them back to three! But they are pretty darn excited about being double-digits and I guess I don’t have much choice in the matter. We’ve always done joint birthday parties for the girls. (Twin mommies: do you have one […]
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 zombie party 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!)
I’ve been celebrating Shark Week all week on the blog, so it’s only fitting to close things out with free shark party printables. (And don’t miss these posts: Shark Fin Soda, Shark Tooth Rice Krispies Treats, Shark Favor Balls and Shark Chum Jell-O.)
Bear with me now: this one is theoretically gross but actually yummy. And it makes me giggle. I do girl parties all the time, and sometimes, it’s just fun to dive into something boy-ish and grody. And so I give you … shark chum Jell-O!
Have you ever seen party favor balls? They are crepe paper balls formed around itty bitty party favors. Your party guests unroll and unroll and unroll to reveal as many little surprises as you want to wrap. I just made my first favor ball — Shark Week-style, of course — and my girls gave the […]
Did you miss my first Shark Week party tip? Click here to get the easy how-tos for making Shark Fin Soda Bottles. Today is part two of my own little Shark Week: Shark Tooth Rice Krispies Treats! Of course, these are a snap to mix up, but my version was even easier to shape into […]
This is one of those “so easy I hate to call it a “tutorial’ tutorials.” Baby B loves sharks and wants a shark theme for her next birthday. While that’s months away, I figured Shark Week would be a great time to brainstorm and test out some ideas, you know … six months in advance. […]
Oh my goodness, I love this party so much! My friend Keisha from Cupcake Wishes and Birthday Dreams created this cupcake decorating party for her daughter Nikki’s 9th birthday. My two have tossed out the idea of a baking party, and I’d LOVE to style it, but at the moment, they want a Sharks & […]
Today, I’m thrilled to welcome Natalie from Katarina’s Paperie to the blog, with her charming Pink Lemonade Play Date Party. Natalie’s shop offers party printables and pretty, pretty decorations with a whimsical flair.
Yesterday, I was so excited to finally share my daughters’ 9th birthday party with you — a Country Music Awards Party! Today, I’m just as excited to give you a sneak peak into some of the pages from my Party Plan! Country Music Awards Plan – Sneak Peak Buy the Party Plan
Every time we get in the car, my twins always ask for one of the country stations. Which started my party planning wheels turning … all we needed to do was to combine country music with an awards show red carpet, and we had a Country Music Awards 9th birthday theme!
Hi — coming to you from the beach today! I’m excited to welcome a few fabulous guests to the blog this week, so I can take a mini-creative break to play with the girls, finish writing my Country Music Awards Party Plan, and get caught up on Marie Forleo’s B-School. (‘Cause basically, I have a […]

One of my very favorite things to find in my email is a zip file of party photos from a client. Whether a mom has purchased a Party Plan, Custom Party Plan, or Party Kit, she’s going to put her own spin on the party — and I can’t wait to see it! So I […]
