{Real Party} A Midwinter’s Pool Party

There are so many crafty and creative mommas around the net, and I’m really happy to have “met” this one in particular. Paula at JC’s Loft taught herself a new graphics program (no little feat) just so she could design her son’s party just the way she wanted it, and then came up with all this fabulousness for the event! I guess I should also mention that this pool party was thrown at an indoor waterpark in the middle of winter–how’s that for a creative party idea??

I’m a total sucker for witty labels

And creative use of food

The cake cracked me up – it’s her family done in Nilla Wafers!!

Everything was personalized just for her little man!

Yes, these are some gratuitous cake smashing pictures, but this is always my favorite part of the 1st birthday party. Looks like Cole was a performer! There are lots more pictures of all the details of this party over at JC’s Loft.

Hi Paula @JC Loft! - Would you mind sharing what programme you self taught yourself!? I'm looking for a basic-ish graphics programme that I can get into - but have never known quite where to start!

Thank you! Haley
