Hello Friends!

Are you keeping warm this season with your hot cocoa?  No?! I'm surely enjoying a few cups from my hot cocoa bar.  I made it festive with brilliant colors and all the cute stuff from Bullseye Playground at Target.  

Pop of Colors Thanksgiving Tablescape

Hello Friends!

Hoping everyone had a very happy and blessed Thanksgiving with family and friends!  We had a very intimate thanksgiving with a handful of our immediate families.  It was truly a refreshing time reflecting on all that happened and most importantly being grateful as we gathered.

I decorated the table with two bold colors along with ivory this year.  It turned out simply amazing with orange roses and navy blue pumpkin with some greenery.  You all know I like to shop at Target and I bet you had seen these little pumpkins at the Bullseye Playground this season.  They are ceramic and was very inexpensive, just $1.00 a piece.   I will stop rambling and you can enjoy these photos.  

Christmas Wish List For Little Girl

Hi Friends,

It's that time of the year again when the little ones write the long list to Santa.  In our house my daughter still believes in Santa and I hope she holds on to that belief for as long as possible.  I notice a lot of changes with the items she has on her wish list this year, which tells me she's not a baby or toddler anymore, she's a little girl growing up too fast.  Little does she know that she will always be my baby no matter how old or tall she gets.  To be honest I like all of these toys, I think they are precious and bring back some memories for me.  

Flamingle In My Teepee Party

Hello Friends!

The past couple weeks I have been brain-storming two themes to tie together for my daughter's sixth birthday party. These themes are both loved by her and myself and I had to make it pretty twinkling.  She spends a lot of time in her teepee that is located in her bedroom.  She likes to pretend reading her books in there and also play with her American Girl dolls, Samantha and Lea.  My little girl loves the outdoor and enjoyed it so much this summer since we got a pool in our backyard.  We own tons of pool floats from cupcake to Unicorn to Flamingo, her favorite is the giant flamingo.  There you have it flamingo and teepee theme.  We came up with the color scheme of pink, hot pink, coral and rose gold, little did I know that I would become obsessed with the colors.  We want this party to be super girlie picnic style and fun with explosions of balloons, teepees and florals with a handful of flamingos everywhere.    

I love DIY parties because its gratifying and also help me stay on my budget and cut cost where possible.  I always repurpose things I already have at home or may have used in previous parties.  There's nothing you can't fix with some spray paint or paint brush along with a glue gun. It helps for easy fix in changing the colors of items,  I did this to change some stuff from gold to rose gold.  If you're still here thank you and enjoy the photos.  

The lovely desserts were under a giant teepee, a total DIY project that turned out lovely.  Let me share with you what i meant above by using stuff from my home as decor for my party.  The coral, blush and pink wreath on the top of the teepee was hung on my front door all of  the summer.  Here is the cool DIY part, the metal drum was black and I spray painted it pink and its perfect for the cake.  The Pink plastic crates were red and I also spray painted them pink., then stacked them and it made a great table for cake pops and cookies. 

Bakery Graduation Party

Hello Friends!

Today I'm sharing how we celebrated my daughter's preschool graduation.  It's sweet and most importantly all her.  Let me tell you about my not so little cupcake.  She graduated preschool and will be off to Kindergarten in the Fall and said it herself that she will be a baker when she grows up.  I took the idea and run with it, I quickly brainstormed a pretty, pink, mint and sweet bakery party for her.  She invited five of her friends along with herself six little graduates all buttered up and ready to make and decorate cupcakes.  

Her most prized possession is her little Kidkraft toy vintage kitchen.  I made it the focal point of the party and I dressed it up with tasty desserts and floral.  A bakery must have a menu and Sugar Parties LA did an amazing job on the menu and the other printables.  I immediately started singing to the lyrics of these signs.   The girls table was style with pink table cloth, mint plates, gold cutlery, pink napkins and a sweet swirl lollipop place in the center of each plate.  The drink bottles were carefully styled with chiffon frills and I popped in darling floral plastic straws from Michaels' Store.  Each of the girls  took home a pretty favor box with cute cookies.  I will stop rambling and just share the photos.
