Mad Science Birthday

I have been so excited to share our super Science Birthday Experiment–I mean “party”.  The kids had so much fun with this! And it was educational! Win win! This makes a great birthday party, or decorate it a little spookier and it makes a great Halloween party! We set the tone for the party with […]

Super Hero Surprise 30th Birthday

I’ve shown you the comic book style invitations and save the dates I made for my brother-in-law’s surprise 30th Superhero birthday party. It’s about time I show you the rest of the party! I won’t be giving any lengthy tutorials because I didn’t do most of the work for this party. I think I planted […]

Under the Sea Mermaid Birthday Party

A couple of weeks ago I go a call from my neighbor on a Wednesday night. She was wondering if I had any ideas for her daughter’s birthday party THAT SATURDAY! She had sent out an evite weeks before, but hadn’t gotten around to any party planning yet. Of course, I had ideas–it’s My Insanity–I […]

How to make a 3D Train Cake

I had a request for more details about the 3D cake I made for my son’s 2-year-old Train Birthday Party last year. I should clarify before I start, that I am not a trained baker (wait until I show you his 3-year-old birthday cake fail). I just get big ideas for my kids’ cakes and […]

Terrific Train Birthday Party

I’ve had a little break from birthday parties, but there are a couple right around the corner now. Before my son celebrates his 3rd birthday, it might be a good idea to blog his 2nd birthday. It hit at a really busy time last year and I just didn’t get a chance to get the […]

Book of Mormon Baptism Dinner

After making my son’s special baptism invitation, I wanted to carry the theme through to our dinner celebration after the baptism. At first I wanted to do a Book of Mormon mystery menu, like my sister had done before. BSB vetoed it on the grounds that it would be a lot of work to serve, […]
