Jungle / Safari Baby Shower



I helped put together this Jungle / Safari themed baby shower for a good friend of mine and it turned out so relaxing and sweet!  We kept the decorations very simple and were able to keep things very mellow and enjoyable for our "new" Mama and her guests.
Our color scheme was light green and turquoise with coordinating flowers and ballons.
For any baby shower I love using baby clothes on a clothes line for cute and useful decorations.  Mama gets to keep the clothes for babies arrival!
To go along with our jungle theme I made chocolate covered bananas for favors with Jungle Babies Party Favor Tags from Ciao Bambino on etsy.com

love them, thank you Ciao Bambino!
And, another baby shower must have, the watermelon fruit basket stroller, so so cute!
We had the cake made to match the invitation and it turned out super adorable as well.

Under the Sea Birthday


Maisie's 3rd Birthday Party
Under the Sea / Ocean Theme Party



My daughter absolutely loves anything ocean, fish, sharks, octopus...
so naturally when her 3rd birthday rolled around there was no questions that the theme had to be ocean / under the sea with a girly twist.
The details:
We had a photo booth set up that everyone got in on the action with, Don't get eatin by the shark!!!
Sea horse pinanta (we can not have a birthday without a pinata!)
Our food choice was Octopus dogs, they turned out so cute
My Mom & I made an assortment of cupcakes with ocean blue frosting & ocean toppers
Favors consisted of chocolate chip cookies (the birthday girls favorite)
with darling Under the Sea party favor tags from Ciao Bambino at etsy.com
and DIY necklaces with mermaids & fish from Michaels
and, of course, the gorgeous "Octopus Princess" cake that my good friend Nicole made, it was perfect!

My New Blog

Well, as you can see I am new to blogging.  However, I am not new to planning and throughing parties. Every chance I get to plan a party or event I jump at the opportunity.  I love planning birthday parties and events for my kids, husband, family & friends and have been told for years to expand this into a business. For me each event is a learning opportunity to expand my creativity and to improve my party planning skills.

As we all say, I never "had" the time to pursue my passion, I just got caught up in my daily grind.  I have been a Realtor for the past 8 years and in that time my husband and I have been growing are family with our 3rd (and final) baby on the way.  With being on bed rest for most of this pregnancy and 3 kids 3 and under, I have been forced to reevalutate my priorities and what makes me truely "happy". Well, planning parties of course!

So here goes!  My goal is to share with you my party creations, great things I find and love and the fabulous ideas of amazing finds through other web-sites, blogs and searches.

I would love for you to share your parties, ideas & suggestions with me as I am always wanting to learn, grow and make this blog one you can't wait to read with each new posting. And, don't forget to to follow my blog, become a Facebook fan and suggest to your friends so you can keep up as I grow my inspirations!

Thank you for your love,
Jessica

Ladybug Cake

This ladybug cake was for my baby girls 1st birthday, thank you Schott's Bakery!
It was amazing and tasted just as good as it looks.


For my youngest daughters 1st birthday, we decided last minute to have an out of town party for all my family that could not make it.  So what better than to travel 3 hours for a party in the park!  We had lot's of family, pizza, a pinata and this gorgeous cake!
