Spa Day Party – Pretty Pinata

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 […]

Spa Day Birthday Party — Nail Polish Invitations

Tea Party Revisited

All photos (except invitation) by Jodee Ballantyne   Last week, Shannon from My Baby Clothes Boutique did a guest post (and a GIVEAWAY) about having a tea party with your toddler. So much of what she said reminded me of this party my daughter and I threw for her friends. It wasn’t her birthday, or […]

Guest Post & GIVEAWAY: Tea Time for Toddlers

Party like it’s 1904–An American Girl (Samantha) Mystery Birthday Party
