Vintage Carnival Birthday Party

I would like to thank a variety of vendors who helped complete my vision. They are linked throughout the post and in a list at the end. 

This entire theme was thought up after seeing a random picture of a carousel horse! I loved the idea of a fun theme for the kiddos (mostly two year olds), I loved that it was vintage, and I loved the pastel color theme that just seemed to go too well with it!

I also knew I had found something unique when I had to search far and wide for items to match the theme. Continue reading

Baby Shower Gift Guide

The following items were gifted to me from the companies listed. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. 

Last weekend I threw one of my best friend’s a baby shower. While I touched on pretty much every aspect of her party in the post I did about it, I didn’t speak much on the gifts. Why? They need a blog post all their own, obviously! 😉

When I was planning out the gift I had a few things in mind. First of all, this is her third child. While she has most of the items she needs, I still wanted to give those fun, cute first time mom gifts! Continue reading

001 - Copy

This past weekend I had the honor (for the third time, yay!!!) to throw one of my bestest friends, Kassie, a baby sprinkle. With it being her third, I kept the guest list small and the party details simple. Even though she knows she’s having (her second) boy, I kept the party theme neutral going with a boho/tribal vibe, using colors ranging in greens and whites. Continue reading

Adalynn and I co-hosted a Galentine’s Day Brunch and Play Date and it was pretty much the best thing ever. I’m sure you’re not suprised since I’m so holiday obsessed! My mama friends brought their kiddos over and we did crafts, ate brunch (mimosas included), and had a photo booth. And then while the kiddos continued playing the moms took part in adult conversation!!!!! Unheard of, right?! Hahah Continue reading

I love holidays! Valentine’s Day quickly became one of my faves after having my baby girl. My husband and I never really celebrated and deemed it a “made-up” holiday. (Such bah humbugs! So unlike me!!! haha) Well fast forward a few years to our baby’s first Valentine’s Day! I wanted to decorate, I wanted everyone to wear hearts and pink and red and anything that said “love.” We did Valentine’s Day crafts, we made cards, we took pictures in all our lovey dovey goodness! I was immediately obsessed! Continue reading

Adalynn’s 1st Birthday Party

I had way too much fun planning our baby girl’s 1st birthday party. While birthdays are so bittersweet, I was did much less crying than I thought I would! I was just so excited for the fun things planned and I’m so excited to see the wonderful things she accomplishes in her life!

Her birthday party was pink lemonade themed and boy did I find some adorable stuff to go along with that theme! I’m also someone who is all about details so every little thing I found I could picture being incorporated into her birthday party.

Her perfectly designed invitation (thank you Audrey!) was a great start!!!

A Most Beautiful Day

It again involves our daughter, she’s really stealing the show isn’t she? The particular day was a couple Sundays ago when we had her dedicated at our church. Continue reading
