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.

Don’t forget the party doesn’t stop on Tuesday!  It goes all week long!  So, check back during the week to see who has linked up!

wedding registry

My 15th wedding anniversary was this week. Hitting big milestones like that makes you stop and think a bit! It's truly been a wonderful/event-filled 15 years with my guy, and standing looking around at what we have/do now and what we had/did then is a bit of a contrast. I was 22 when I got married and just a few months out of college. We bought our first house before we were married, and our house { Read More! }

Dairy Free chocolate cupcakes-6

It's that time of year again where your Pinterest and blog feeds turn to thoughts of fall. While I'm still stuck in 85-90 degree heat and humidity here in Florida, I am definitely thinking of changing leaves and all things pumpkin. After a spectacular fail making up a batch of dairy-free pumpkin cheesecakes using my favorite Silk Coconutmilk, I decided to make one of my favorite recipes dairy-free { Read More! }

Black Sock Cat Tutorial

I'm part of a fun little group that puts together seasonal 15 minute craft tutorials--and with Halloween so close, we've got a whole bunch of great Craft Lightning Halloween projects coming your way! My project was inspired by a recent purge of my husbands sock drawer. There were so many with out matches, we had to get rid of a whole bunch of perfectly good socks. So instead of throwing them away, { Read More! }

Bewitching Halloween Party

Over the years, I've amassed no less than eight (yes eight!) bins of Halloween decorations and many other large pieces I can't contain in a snap top box. Since there are so many gathered over such a long period of time, it's hard to find duplicates, or extras of the stuff that I really love. Glittered pumpkins and skulls are a few things that I can't seem enough of. Which is why { Read More! }


Shutterfly, as you've seen from a few of the blog posts I've done, is one of my favorite companies. Occasionally I'm compensated to use their stuff, but I'd but from them anyway as I love how my products come out from them. It's been fun having the perfect excuse to explore all they offer--and now they're starting offer custom mix and match stationery! Practicing the long lost art of handwritten { Read More! }

linky, tea party, party

Three months have passed since the first Party Time Linky! Time sure flies when you are having fun!  During this time, readers and bloggers have learned and shared a lot about parties right here!  We've seen amazing party themes, party decorations, party recipes and party games each week. Last week we had quite a few linkups.  The most popular party was the Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter Tea { Read More! }

Five minute dessert #PartyReddi

I was asked to participate in the Reddi-wip #PartyReddi. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own. Party planning is hard work! It's always a good idea to have at least a few treats on hand to make that are super quick to put together - like five minute dessert quick. These pretty Cookies & Cream party treats are not only a lightning-fast making item, but they're bound { Read More! }
