Petite Celebrations Pirate Party

Pirate party

This weekend we celebrated my son’s 8th birthday with a Pirate Party!  The interesting thing is that I’ve been so busy creating parties for others these past couple of months that I literally had nothing for this party (except the plates & a few miscellaneous items) a week before.  I know…mother of the year here…  Thankfully, my items were […]

Baby Shower Dessert Parfaits
