Soaking it all in...

Hey Ya'll, I'm so sorry that my posts are so few and far between...
I just wanted to write and say that I love and appreciate all my followers but
for now I am just enjoying my family and all the amazing ways God is moving in my life.
Parties will be always be my passion and I am going to continue to plan and post parties just not as often as usual.  Keep following.... in the spring I will for sure have some great things to post about! God is so good and I am just going to soak it all in for now!

"Kids Only" Fall Table

Hello! Just wanted to post real quickly with this super adorable "Kids Only" Fall table that my mother in law and I put together a few weeks ago for a
Fall Dinner Party that we hosted. 
This table was inspired by the Celebration Shoppe's Harvest Collection.
 I fell in love with the adorable scarecrow and the addition of the bright blue color to all the
traditional fall colors. This party only hosted 4 little ones so I didn't purchase the printables but they would have been PERFECT!

Is this NOT the truth?

Now, this {PHOTO} deserved it's very own blog post!
First of all, to all my party momma's out there....
During the planning process of each and every party I plan... there is always that moment of creative inspiration when I say "... And for my next party I am going to..." and my husband says,
 "Whoa, whoa...Let's finish this party before you go jumping the gun..." LOL

Not only does this photo crack me up, but it seriously is one of the MOST CREATIVE ideas
that I have seen used in the {OH so popular} photobooth concept!
Chalkboard thought bubbles!!!

Great job to Stacey from Elle Belle!!!
In my book, you win the most thoughful and creative award for the YEAR!

{Real Party} One Year Old in A FLASH...

This super fun and bright First Birthday came to me from Stacey of Elle Bella Blog, a blog filled with great DIY projects. When I saw this party, I immediately fell in love with the color sheme... one of my favs!

Stacey says" Every parent says it… they grow up so fast! In just a year’s time, they go from snuggling and sleeping most of the day to toddling around the house, laughing, and calling out for “Ma Ma Ma”. The bittersweet thoughts about our last baby's first birthday & the desire to capture this fun time in my little one’s life inspired the theme for Liv’s party:
One Year Old in a Flash. "

Invitation designed by Beyond Design... Set the tone of the party PERFECTLY!

Water labels are one of my favorite party details! (designed by Beyond Design)
Such a simple idea but it always has such a huge impact!

Chocolate dipped oreos, homemade marshmallows, and white chocolate covered popcorn ...

 photo booth Stacey created for the party.
PERFECT detail for such a unique theme!

Always love seeing the family photos ... Gorgeous family!

Stacey, Thank you so much for sharing this super fun and unique party with me.
Your creativity, attention to detail and determination to create a unique idea is very inspiring!
Can't wait to see what you come up with next!
