Inspiration: Travel Themed Shower

I am working on a few elements for a Travel Themed Baby Shower and since it is a very unique and sophisticated theme for a baby shower, I thought it would be helpful to put together and inspiration board to get the creative juices flowing. I am loving the all vintage suitcases and roadmap placemats.

Inspiration: Spa Candy

WOW! I am drooling over this new twist on the Candy/Dessert Display. SPA CANDY! This idea is perfect for a baby or bridal shower, bachelorette or spa party. Hop over to another one of my favorite blogs Celebrations at Home
to find out where to get recipes for the bath salts, soaps, lip balms, and body scrubs, as well as printables for the display and packaging. Seriously.... too cute to not start planning a Spa Party now!

My Baby Girl is THREE!

Today my baby girl turns three {TEAR}. It’s hard to believe that in a short three years she has grown into such an amazingly perfect little person.

This gorgeous little girl makes my heart smile. The day she was born I looked at her and said ...this extremely hairy chubby little thing can’t be mine. But today I look at her and I can see in her eyes that she has an incredible passion for life like her daddy and a soft heart like her mommy. She has a huge personality, a big heart and an incredible sense of humor. She has an amazing excitement for everything that she has seen in her life and I hope that it continues as she grows older. There isn't a day that goes by that she doesn't make me smile.

I just adore this shot. For those of you who know her, how can you not smile as you watch her shake her little bum? Her confident little strut of a walk makes me giggle everytime.

Just the other night my girlfriends and I were talking about how time flies and we can’t believe how quickly our babies are growing.There is something about a mother’s love that melts me inside.

If we could only slow down time a little and cherish the moments with them a little longer. I have fallen in love with the little person she has become and I am so lucky that I get to continue to watch her grow and learn. If I could only bottle up that little laugh and sweet smile and keep it young and innocent forever.

She is growing so fast and learning so quickly and I love every moment of watching that. But as she grows I will for sure miss sweet Alyssa language. " A wee nugga choo choo" {translation- come on lets go on the train} or the ones that I don't have translation for, " Oh, sooky goodness!"

It melts my heart to see how much she adores her baby sister.  My life is complete knowing that these two perfect litle girls have a life long friendship and unconditional love in each other for the rest of their lives. She is full of love and I just love to see how much she adores her family and her friends.

I thank God everyday for my precious little girls and I am so lucky to have been blessed with such perfect little people in my life.

WOW! I am on cloud nine! As you all know I am a HUGE fan of Hostess with the Mostess. I was super excited and extremely honored when Jennifer of Hostess with the Mostess contacted me to feature my Love Birds Valentine's Day Party on her blog. This is the site that I go to for party inspiration on a daily basis and I was over the moon that she wanted to feature ME! I encourage everyone to check out HWTM blog and see all the amazing ideas and inspirations she has to offer.

This is just another exciting and encouraging moment that I can add to the list of great things happening to Bella Grace Party Designs! Thanks again to Courtney Vickers Photography and Kori Clark Designs for all your help!
