Sweet Easter Bunny Hop Party

Hello friends! Easter is almost here and I am very excited to share with you our new Easter “Bunny Hop” Party! If you are looking for an easy set up with some fun diy’s, this party is for you! There’s also loads of ideas and little crafts for your kiddos to help out, too! So, “HOP” along for some spring time fun!

I was inspired by our “Easter Brights” printable collection and used all 4 colors that are designed in the printables: yellow, blue, pink, and green.

To keep the set up super easy, I filled the table with cupcakes, mini cupcakes, sugar cookies, mini gumballs, and this store bought cake that I added all the toppings at home!

I baked mini donuts, added a few marshmallows for the base, and then began layering mini coconut cupcakes, donuts, and finished it off with a few of our favorite Easter candies! So easy to do!

Sweet little bunny cookies!

If you want to involve your children, have them add little pom poms to lollipop sticks! We styled these with the mini cupcakes. This was my son’s idea and I think they turned out great! It was wonderful to have him help me with this party!

One of the crafts that we did together was make these pinwheels! We added a few to the wall for the backdrop and they also make a cute little centerpiece! Christian decided to place the little pom poms in the center of each pinwheel. These can then be given out as party favors and make fantastic photo props!

For the table setting, we added printable placemats, favor boxes, tiny buckets with Easter eggs, and mason jars filled with colorful juice! So fun! Don’t forget to add a personalized place card at each setting. Children love to see their names!

Adding these daisy cut lids with a paper straw and printable flag adds a special touch to any tablescape!

I found these sweet little favor boxes at a local wholesaler and new they would be perfect for the party. Fill them with any of your favorite Easter candy or treats, add little tag and ribbon and you are set!

Don’t forget to have lots of water on hand, too! No one says no to water when they are this cute!

A few more photos to share…

Thank you for joining me today! Wishing you a Happy Easter!

Daisy Birthday Party

Today I am excited to share a darling birthday party that I styled a while back…a “Little Daisy” themed party! I designed this collection using yellow, kelly green, and of course, a little daisy graphic throughout the printable collection. DSC_3270ed2DSC_3254ed2DSC_3218ed2

I served lemonade in mason jars and topped off the jars with daisy lids, baker’s twine and then using a daisy punch, I added a paper daisy to each mason jar. Paper straw flags added that finishing touch to the lemonade jars. Too cute!

One of my absolute favorite items to add to dessert tables are these mini glass jars! They are perfect for mousse, puddings, layered desserts, and so much more. Here I made lemon custard and added mini spoons and more baker’s twine!

Sunflower Birthday Party

On a recent trip to the grocery store, I saw the first sunflowers of the season. Sunflowers are one of the simplest flowers, yet they really do brighten your day! They also are nostalgic, often reminding us of the gardens of our grandmothers!

Today I am sharing a Sunflower themed birthday table with coordinating printables that I styled. It is the perfect theme for any birthday party that you plan on celebrating in August or September. Start planning now!

2015 Graduation Printables {FREEBIE}

We recently cerebrated my niece’s high school graduation, so naturally, I had to design a new printable package…that happens to be a FREE download! Since the party was a small family gathering, I wanted the dessert table to be simple and clean. That’s the style that I love!  The printables were designed in basic black, white, and gold and with pops of coral in the ruffle cake, cookies, cupcakes, and floral arrangement!

Carnival Birthday Party!

Today, I am sharing the Carnival Fun birthday party I styled for my son’s birthday last year! I did not have my blog up and running at that time, so I could not share this with you. Fast forward one year and here we are. Better late than never, right?!?!

Christian requested a FUN Carnival Birthday theme and who doesn’t love a Carnival?!?!?  His favorite colors are red and blue (all shades of blue, actually), so I designed this theme around traditional, carnival colors, with the addition of a colorful balloon graphic. The balloons were requested by Christian, since he LOVES them! I also wanted to add a pop of color and the balloons were just perfect! One of the displays that caught my eye a few years ago, was this fabulous here: dessert table. I love the simplicity of the display and the addition of color with the gum balls.

The cake was a hit and I love how Brenda at Cakeworks incorporated all of the colors and kept the design simple…just the way I like it!

Another favorite item from the party was the ferris wheel cupcake holder that I purchased on Amazon. It was a perfect focal point on the dessert table and the guests loved it (kids + parents alike!) Great find!

Cakeworks also made these delicious cookies in 3 designs: the carnival tent, “7”, and “C”. Christian absolutely LOVED seeing his age and initial on the cookies! So special for him.  I am always amazed at the talent that the cake/cookie designers have. Always impressed with their work!

Marbella Printables

I did design cupcake toppers for the printable package and used them on the glass candy jars. However, at the last minute, I decided I wanted the cupcakes to resemble carnival tents. I used red, striped paper straws (cut in two), added a dab of icing, placed a cherry sour on top, and wrapped the printable flags around the straws. I was very pleased with these and it was an easy diy project that you can do, too!

I designed a large 20×30 poster welcoming everyone to the party. Additional items on the front table were chocolate bar wrappers, ceramic letter dishes, and gable boxes for the party favors. What’s a carnival party without cotton candy??? I designed cello bag toppers and used little clothes pins to hang the bags on jute twine! Super fun! NOTE: these were a HUGE hit with the kiddies!

On the large, red gable boxes for the favors, I added printable labels with each child’s name and a personalized tag! Find the gable boxes here.

The table settings included a coordinating printable placemat, red striped/polka dot/stars plates, napkins, and party hats.  I love to add confetti to party tables. Using a 1″ circle punch and tissue paper, I made confetti with all of the colors from the collection.Very easy project to do and makes an impact! Popcorn, pretzels, and red beverages (served in empty soda pop bottle) were included on the menu.

Printable water bottle labels are one of the most popular items that is sold in the shoppe and these carnival labels have been very popular since I listed the collection last year.

Christian and I had a little fun before his guests arrived putting together a little tray of goodies with him very loudly saying,  “peanuts, popcorn, licorice!” when the door opened. There were a lot of giggles with his friends over this tray! Everyone had to have a turn! Fun games included: sack races, egg/spoon races, a bouncy castle, tattoo/sticker station (non-permanent!), and a balloon artist!

This collection is one of our most popular packages as it is full of personalized printables! I hope you have enjoyed these photos and are inspired to plan a FUN Carnival birthday party!

I can’t believe this party took place a year ago. We are now in full planning mode for his 8th birthday party taking place next weekend. Stay tuned and I will be sharing those photos with you in a few weeks. Can’t wait!
