If you’ve been perusing the blogs lately, you’ve most likely seen Kiki La Ru’s cake bunting.
Her designs are insanely adorable and would be SO cute for a little one’s birthday party. (Though I think they’d work for any age…hello…I’d like these on my own cake!)
Brooke, the blogger behind Inchmark did a GREAT post about hosting a “Favorite Things Party“. That’s all I’m gonna tell you. However, I suppose I’ll hint that it involves sharing your favorite things, under $6, with friends and receiving some great gifts in return. To find out how it works, immediately head on over here to Inchmark (one of my FAVE blogs, by the way!). Here’s what Brooke brought to the spring party:

This baby shower for photographer Meg Fish and her baby, Ella, is perfectly detailed and just about the sweetest little baby shower you’ll ever want to see. The shower itself was thrown by photographer Christy Schuler, who incidentally took these images as well! What an incredibly talented gal! I am really really adoring that chicken wire cake dome…I think it’s a must have! Speaking of cake…the cake and cupcakes are by the ever talented Enjoy Cupcakes, who I’m thinking I MUST come up and visit this summer.
I hope you enjoy!
A few weekends ago, we celebrated my nephew’s first birthday. He’s the first baby among my three sisters, so of course, we are absolutely enamored with him! The first birthday is obviously more a celebration for the family than anything, so we decided to have some fun with his party. My sister Hayley and I styled all sorts of paper and pom chandeliers, pennant flags, giant rosettes, and of course cupcake flags. My favorite element of our decor was the “Toy Buffet” that we set up. We had custom bags for the kids (and kids at heart) to fill up with vintage inspired toys. All the guests at the party had a blast playing with the parachute men, whirly gigs, japanese finger traps, kazoos, and the like. Here are some pictures by T & H Photography!
The cake topper was a vintage metal carousel that I picked up at the flea market.
For his chandelier, we made tissue poms, and giant rosettes. We had to order the honeycomb balls from here.
Below are the beautiful parents, Hayley and Travis.
Hudson HATED his hat. He also cried when we sang “Happy Birthday” and wailed when Hayley tried to convince him to eat cake by sticking his hands in the frosting. Oh the drama!
Once the guests left, we managed to get Hudson to enjoy a little cake!
Enjoying the spoils of birthday victory!

So, if I had say, a 12-year-old daughter, I’d see what I could do about throwing a birthday party for her just like this one. Twelve seems to be the age right in between playful little girl and tortured adolescent. The want to be cool and mature clashes with little hearts that can’t help but love dress up and make-believe. This tent seems to be the perfect in between. It’s a swanky candlelit dinner that wildly appeals to fantasy and imagination.
I’m thinking you need lots of pvc pipes, material, and a splash of candles and decor to get this done. Oh, and TONS of elbow grease. The task seems daunting yet exciting, no?

It’s not surprise that the talent behind little Hailey’s third birthday are the ladies of Posh Paperie. Karrie and Elizabeth (Hailey’s mom) are incredibly talented gals whose work has been featured all over the wedding blogosphere. This kite themed birthday shot by the fabulous Jackie Wonders is so darling, I know you’ll love it!
One of my best friends in the entire world also happens to be the most talented stylist and designer that I know. Desiree’s creativity knows no bounds. So, of course, when it came to throwing her daughter’s first birthday, I had no doubt it would be absolutely breathtaking. The result was more lovely than I could have ever pictured, so of course I couldn’t resist sharing her Christmas birthday with you. I hope you enjoy!
