Happy 2nd Birthday sweet Griffin!

Today my dear friend Courtney's  little boy turns two! I have known this little boy since he was in mommy's belly, so it was hard not to get a little teary eyed when he walked in the door today with his Birthday Boy shirt on. Griffin is one of the sweetest, smartest, lovable and most laid back little boys you will ever meet... it's hard to not just fall in love with him.  Watching our babies grow up together has made it so easy to hold this little boy close to my heart. Happy 2nd Birthday sweet Griffin!

Here is Griffin's super fun birthday party invitation created by Paper and Pigtails!
Hold onto your hats everyone this birthday party is going to have some
seriously cute details! I can't wait to celebrate with him this weekend!

Car that go Zoom!

 This party is originally designed by the very talented Scissors.Paper.Cake but I just loved how Pizzazzerie showcased this party. Courtney at Pizzazzerie said is perfectly "Finding ways to create a child’s party without following an over-used “theme” makes for a unique party!"

Vintage Circus REAL Party

I have found so many awesome REAL PARITES this week while searching for Vintage Carnival and Circus Parties. This one I found via P is for Party and I thought it was simply adorable and perfectly put together. This party was originally from Aly of La Luz Photography {professional wedding and portrait photographer} for her son's 2nd Birthday. Check out  P is for Party for the whole post and lots more great inspirations and ideas.

The top of this cake is SO cute!


These popcorn bags were perfect! Check out  HeyYoYo's Etsy shop where Aly got them from.
It is full of super cute vintage toys and novelties. I think I will be placing and order with them soon

You will be seeing these straws again very soon at my Vintage Toy Party in May. I searched forever for these things and I plan on displaying them front and center... LOL.
If you are searching for them yourself check out Modern Lola 
or you can also find them at HeyYoYo's.

Real Party: Spa Candy Ladies' Night

Do you remember my Spa Candy post from a few weeks ago that I found via Celebrations at Home? Well, I had a chance to put some of that inspiration to good use! Once a month my friends and I will have a "Ladies' Night In" at one of our homes. This month it was my turn to host. My sister Sarah, who is an Area Manager and Independent Consultant for Arbonne  International(R), helped me  put on this months ladies' night. If you haven't heard of Arbonne(R), you are missing out!  Take a look at this...


Arbonne is a 3o year old botanically-based, swiss formulated health and wellness company. These products are at the corner of "high fashion" and "green."
These are a few of Arbonne's {Pure, Safe and Beneficial} products.

Each guest brought home a loofah, manicure set,
Arbonne's Unwind Bath Salts  and lots of sample products.






I tried to keep the menu simple and healthy by serving carrot cake cupcakes {healthiest sounding cupcake I could find}, cantaloupe and honeydew skewers, vegetable potato chips and veggie shots with fat free ranch dressing.






Be sure to take a closer look at what Arbonne(R) has to offer!

more adorable woodland party favors

I found these adorable Woodland cookie favors from Sweetopia via Hostess with the Mostess. I am a recent follower of Sweetopia and I am just amazed with how beautifully detailed her work is. I love details, but food is something I would leave to an artist like this.
Check out her blog for some great tutorials.
