book party-52

There were a few extra special goodies and favors at the book party. What book worm wouldn’t want their own little bag of bookworms to munch on, while indulging in their favorite page-turner? These were displayed in a bowl on the bookshelf, for the children to grab and enjoy either during the party or to […]

Book Club Birthday–Prologue

book party-31

I am so excited to give you a peak at the book “bash” we had this weekend, in honor of my daughter’s 11th birthday! My daughter is a voracious reader and hasn’t met many books she doesn’t like. It seemed like the perfect theme for my daughter and her bookworm friends. As you may have […]

3D Roller Skate and Disco Ball Cake

  I don’t really have time today for a lengthy tutorial or explanation, but since I was foolish enough post an incriminating picture of the havoc this cake wreaked on my kitchen, I thought I ought to show you the finished product. This was for my neighbor’s 10th birthday, which happens to be her Golden birthday! Her […]

A Tangled Celebration

Tangled birthday girls

My daughter (who has a thing for hair) was heart-set on a Rapunzel birthday. Using some great internet resources, a bit of imagination, and a lot of friends and family, we threw a Tangled adventure for the birthday girl and her friends. Where to begin? How about with my little Rapunzel herself and the gorgeous […]

I’ve managed to drag out the re-cap of my daughter’s Spa Birthday party for a very long time! I hope you aren’t bored to tears of it yet. One of the reasons I’ve been slow is that it is almost time for our June Blogger/Crafter’s Night Out and I have been working on lots of […]

  Along with their decorated flip flops, our spa party guests got to take home an assortment of fun bath and beauty supplies that didn’t break the bank. The highlight was meant to be these homemade bath fizzies, my daughter and I made following these directions from Martha Stewart. I will warn you that they didn’t […]

Nail Polish Cake

The miracle workers were here all last week, so I finally have some projects around the home that I am about ready to share! But first, let’s finish the spa day party (a few more posts to go!)! I wish I were an amazing cake artist, but my lack of expertise, never holds me back […]

Spa Day Party – Fun with Flip Flops

Last night was my music recital for the year, and I tell you I am exhausted today. The big bummer is there was plenty of insanity involved in the refreshments and such, but with everything else I was trying to do, no camera, and no pictures. Maybe I can re-create a few things and post […]

When discussing what my daughter had in mind for her birthday party, this year, I was surprised to learn that she really wanted a piñata. We have them sporadically for birthday parties, but she hadn’t had one for a couple of years and decided there should be one at this party. Of course, with a spa […]
