Today’s feature looks as if it is straight out of a photo shoot for Country Living magazine, although it is actually a dual birthday celebration.  I shouldn’t be surprised, though, since it is the work of Jess of Pen n’ Paper Flowers.  I think I love it so much because it combines party design concepts with interior […]

Oh, Go Fly A Kite!

I’ve never met Tracey Lau, but I’m pretty sure she is a creative genius!  She designed this dessert table for her son’s 1st birthday and it is nothing short of spectacular!  When you look at the big picture you feel like you are literally in a park, and when you inspect the details, they are unlike anything […]

Simply layer scrapbooking paper (or felt or fabric) flowers, and glue on to the top of the drink.  Embellish with buttons, a tag, and ribbon.  Ta […]

There are so many themes for Father’s Day celebrations - fishing, tools, sports, business/ties, etc.  A Golf Theme is very traditional and pretty easy to pull off with some golf balls, tees, and a little greenery.  I thought I’d share some fun inspiration from other party peeps around the web. Stephanie of Couture Parties designed this stylish party {above} […]

Rustic Pirate Birthday Party

There are a lot of very cute pirate parties on the interwebs, that utilize red and black and whimsical fun.  But I love this Pirate Party from Nice Party because it exudes a more sophisticated atmosphere which would even be suitable for an adult themed party. Some of my favorite elements: the rustic neutral tones incorporating […]
