2 Great Parties are Coming!

So my blogging has fallen behind the past couple of weeks, between 2 little ones and a baby coming any day I am exhausted!  I do however have a beach inspired yellow baby shower to share with you from a few weeks back that I have been working on.  And, my lollipop birthday party for my daughters 2nd birthday is this Saturday and I can't wait to  get the photos and share with you as well.
Stay tuned...

Owl of a Time

Hoot Owl Birthday Party
Kara at Kara's Party Ideas posted this as her Winning Feature and I just had to feature it too!


This is such a fun and original theme I couldn't not share it with you!
Such attention to detail and not to mention that not only is it super cute but these photo are giving me a sweet tooth.

Well, I am learning in going back through my previous parties that I am not good at taking photos of the decor and party planning process.  All my photos are the party, guests and gifts.  I promise that on all "new" party posts I will be much more detail and diligent in my photos. 
Hope you still enjoy these older parties on a much smaller posting scale.

Sweet Baby Girl Baby Shower

A Sweet Baby Girl Shower

This shower was so sweet and simple letting the gifts and balloons be the majority of the decor and, oh that cake!

Butterfly Baby Shower

My first Baby Shower!
My Mom, Aunt, Cousins & Family Friend through this shower for me and they did an amazing job.

My theme with my first baby girl was butterflies & dragonflies and they incorporated that theme into everything.  So sweet, simple and perfect!

Monkey's 1st Birthday

 A very "Girly" Monkey 1st Birthday!

For my little monkeys 1st birthday it was a must for a monkey themed party.  The challange?  Everything monkey I found was boy, not girl.  So I was on a creative hunt.
Grammy was on the birthday girls cake and might I add it was perfect!
My friend Jessica made the monkey face cake.  Both cakes were just perfect and exactly what I wanted.

Sisters sharing the yummy's!

I found these monkey masks at Oriental Trading Co.. I decided to have the masks instead of party hats and they were a huge hit with the kids.

We had our party outdoors on the lawn which worked out perfectly for the kids to run and play while the Moms & Dads visited.
I found all of my crafting supplies at Michaels for the banner.
For party favors:
I decorated pots and filled them with a planted bulb
Animal Crakers
Goody bags filled with various monkey themed toys and bubbles

Having the party outside I figured simple was best and everything turned out perfectly!
