Pirates of the Caribbean 7th Birthday

I’m excited to share the details of my son’s 7th birthday party with you. Seven. Wow. Not sure how that happened. He is all about the Pirates of the Caribbean movies and loves Jack Sparrow. That’s CAPTAIN Jack Sparrow. I set out to throw him a sort of creepy and realistic pirate party, and we… Read More

Vintage Fishing 4th Birthday

A few months back, Emily came to me through mutual friends I’d worked with. She had a fishing-themed birthday in mind to celebrate her son, Jack’s 4th birthday and their life-long love of the water. Her desire to use family photos and heirloom fishing items drove the vintage look and feel. After much searching, she… Read More

Retro Rocket Party

I love to share Lauren’s parties. They are so chocked full of thoughtful detail, and this one is no different. Her oldest boy just turned three, and he is a Buzz Lightyear aficionado. OK, that may be an understatement. Since his last birthday, The Children’s Museum of Mississippi has opened. There’s a retro rocket right… Read More

Heroes and Villains, Part Three

As we return to the story, we find our team of heroes and villains heading back outside…. Our super friends were greeted with tables perfectly outfitted (and caped) for both the good and the bad to pump up their muscles and enjoy some of that SUPER hero sandwich. WOW! Even the balloons were perfectly outfitted… Read More

Heroes and Villains, Part One

I am on the road, so Lauren graciously offered to tell you about Reese’s Heroes and Villains party last weekend. — What a weekend for our supermom and party-planning hero, Eleanor. For months she has soared over everyday ideas and leapt past licensed superheroes to create a fifth birthday celebration for her son that was… Read More
