It's Easter week, Moms. I don't know about you, but I just this morning thought about if I am going to send in an Easter treat for the kids' classes. That's "if." IF that happens, my kids will be taking with them something simple...easy to bake, easy to assemble, and hopefully not too terrible for their tummies. As fate would have it, one of my long-time clients buzzed me up and asked for a { Read More! }

Confetti is totally fun. Really, it is! Sometimes it's worth the clean up for those pure moments of joy when those little pieces of papers are fluttering down around your head. For our graduation party this year, I made some fun confetti poppers out of push up pop containers I had sitting around. I had made a ton of tissue tassels for the display, and all the little trimmings made fantastic { Read More! }

When you're decorating for a big bash like gradutation, you want pieces that stand out and look great...but you don't necessarily want them to hang around for a real long time after the party is over. At the beginning of creating this graduation party, I had intended to find some vases to cover and use. By happy chance, I 1. couldn't find anything that was exactly what I wanted and 2. everything i { Read More! }

A few years ago, when I did my last graduation party shoot, I used some number-shaped lollipops to top off my grocery-store purchased cake. Now, if you have a good-sized budget, you can order custom lollipops and such for cake toppers. Most people I know won't do that, so here is a much less expensive, yet equally pretty option to make a great cake topper for your graduate's celebration cake from { Read More! }

Every great party has a great party favor! The party favors for our graduation party were easy to make, and fell into my favorite party favor category--chocolate and consumable! Hershey kisses decorated with graduation printable kiss stickers (which are free printables here on this page!) are tucked into cellophane bags and topped off with pretty paper tags made with Shutterfly address { Read More! }

This post is a part of a campaign with Shutterfly and LooksiSquare. All opinions are entirely my own.  Parties always start with a little bit of inspiration from somewhere, whether it's a theme, a favorite shirt, or in this case, a celebratory graduation stationery piece from Shutterfly. I just loved the glitter and bold colors in the invite; it just screamed party!  I took the colors of the { Read More! }

tissue tassel TUTORIAL

Sometimes I know my own blog doesn't show it, but I do write an awful lot of blog posts and articles! I have a couple of great tutorials I recently wrote to share with you. My brother and his wife are going to have a baby soon, so I've started crafting up some fun decorations for their shower and showing how I'm doing it along the way.   Over at Project Nursery, I posted a tutorial { Read More! }
