Each week, starting on Tuesday, is the first day of the weekly Party Time Linky.  It’s exciting to think that every Tuesday can be a PARTY Day!!!  You can party right along with lots of readers and bloggers, as they post their party ideas, party recipes, party themes and party games on the Party Time Linky.  You can even enter your own photos of events you have hosted.  There are more details at the bottom of this post about that.

Another fun part of Tuesday is the recap of the top three most visited links from the previous week.  I really like this part, since it gives a wide array of parties and ideas that you might have missed during the party.

Last week, the most visited party was the Be Our Guest Belle Tea Party by Sweetly Chic Events & Design.  The soft pink, yellow and gold colors work beautifully with lots of satin and roses to set a royal atmosphere .  This party will make any little girl feel like a princess.

The second most visited linky last week was for Healthier Pumpkin Bread by American Heritage Cooking.  Pumpkins and Fall match up perfectly.  It’s a great time to try a new recipe.

The third most visited linky from last week was this Halloween Countdown by Blooming Homestead.  It’s a DIY project that’s easy and will make a fun and interactive addition to your halloween decor.

Angel first birthday party dessert table

I was asked to participate in the Reddi-wip #PartyReddi. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own. Babies are blessings, especially sweet little ones like our birthday girl, Emma. She is such a darling, special little girl. She couldn't be anything but angelic, so we thought it fitting to throw her a Little Angel First Birthday party. Inspired by the image of frothy white { Read More! }

Dr SeUss Birthday Party-17

Dr. Seuss and his many many characters are so bright and colorful and full of whimsy that they make for the perfect birthday party theme. As party of an article for Yum! Food and Fund for Kids magazine, I was able to work with Random House to create a fun Dr. Seuss birthday party full of Dr. Seuss fun! From the Green Eggs and Ham appetizers to the Cat in the Hat striped desserts with a side { Read More! }

Slumber party tips for your first sleepover

My daughter is finally at that age where she's able to have sleepovers. We try to limit slumber party madness to one or two girls at a time, but even then it seems there seems to be a bit of anxiety about what to do during the party. And then there is the question of how to get a bunch of eight year old girls down for bed for a good night's sleep. After a few go rounds, I've found out you have to { Read More! }

Iced Teagaritas and Mango Peach Salsa-1

In the south, it is not uncommon to while away an afternoon sitting on the porch, drinking tall glasses of iced tea and shooting the breeze. It's completely idyllic and a wonderful way to catch up with good friends and family. We called it "porch-sittin'" where we lived. Of course, people allowed a whole afternoon on their porch with a glass of tea likely don't have kids. Nowadays, it's nice to { Read More! }
