Animal prints are still popular themes for bridal showers and bachelorette parties. I wanted to share some adorable pictures from a zebra print bridal shower that took place a couple weekends ago. One of our girls planned and decorated for the party. It was a success to say the least. I think she has a happy bride on her hands so far, which is great. We don’t want any bridezillas on the loose!
These last few days in southern California have been some of the hottest days we’ve had in quite a while. We’re used to nice, warm weather, but humidity? Not so much. We’ll pull through. Sorry for complaining, friends in the Midwest and on the east coast. It’s nothing personal.
A great way to kick off summer vacation for both children and adults is to either host or attend a pool party. Not everyone has a pool in their backyard, so it’s a real treat for some kids when they get a chance to go splash around in a pool with friends. If you’re hosting, remember that you can host a pool party at a community pool if it is not something that is available at home! Keep the following 7 tips in mind to ensure fun for everyone at the pool:
One of my best friends and coworker got married in Cabo last week! She planned her wedding in only four months and it turned out phenomenal. She had, of course, been planning to be married for some time, but the idea to make it a destination wedding was a bit more last minute. Her sister-in-law, another one of her friend’s and I had to quickly scramble to put together a beautiful bridal shower in only a few weeks. The bride was insisting that she did not want to trouble anyone, but she is so amazing and totally deserved a special gathering with close friends and family before her big day. Not all of us were able to be there so we felt it was important that we have a pre-celebration here. We made sure to send her off with tons of love and well wishes.
Summer officially arrived this past Friday. The children have been out of school for a little over a week now and if you thought you had a relaxing three months ahead, you’re probably wrong. Well relaxing, but busy. Tons of moms take advantage of kids’ time off from school to immerse them in summer sports, activities or play dates. The social calendar can fill up very quickly! Summer babies during this time have the lucky opportunity to celebrate their birthdays at the pool, the beach or the park.
Christening, baptism, first communion and confirmation season is coming to an end. I wanted to share some decoration ideas for a baptism my friend hosted about a week ago. I know it can get stressful to try and get decorations with a Religious Theme because your local store either doesn’t carry them, or the designs are limited and plain. Although we sell both Christian & Religious Themed Party Supplies and Solid Colored Tableware, these are some quick tips to spruce up your decor: Continue reading
Ladybug themed birthday parties are very popular this season. We’ve put together an adorable inspiration board filled with ideas to throw the most adorable themed party:
My childhood friend is expecting her first child early next year and we have been diligently working the past few weeks to plan her dream baby shower. She is a die-hard Little Mermaid fan and as our luck would have it, there are very few places that make Little Mermaid themed decorations. We have literally had to customize almost everything (except standard plastic table covers and napkins). I know customization always sounds like the budget will be through the roof, but I promise we made most of the décor ourselves and kept our expenses well below the budget. It’s plenty of work, but worth it.
Wedding planning only becomes more and more stressful as the event nears. Not only is the deadline fast approaching, but the wedding budget has to be kept in mind the whole time. Many times, brides will obsess over the wedding favors that most guests will either forget at the table, hide away in a display case, or throw away after whatever amount of time they have established is decent. So, seriously. Don’t sweat it and go with chocolate or candy, your guests will appreciate the sweet treat at the end of the night. Continue reading
