Girl’s First Communion Party

First Communion season is nearing! For us, preparations start at the beginning of the second grade school year, and religious education classes go through late April, so the build-up is long and the kids are excited and a little nervous. Since the occasion itself is solemn, it was important to us to let our daughter’s… Read More

Princess and the Popstar 5th Birthday

I’m excited to have gotten my amazing photos back from my sweet friend, Rachel, and to have finally gotten through all of them so that I can share my daughter’s Barbie: The Princess and The Popstar birthday party with you all. The movie is a classic “grass is greener” tale of a princess and a… Read More

Puppy Party

Well, I finally did it. I threw one of the MANY non-birthday related parties that I dream up. Yea me! This time, we were celebrating the addition of sweet Miss Buttercup to our family. Seemed like as good an excuse as any to have friends over and eat junky food, no? I felt a bit… 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

Milk + Cookies First Birthday

My Caroline is the princess-loving tough as nails variety of little girl. A sweet jumble of contradictions. The kind of girl you only get from having an older brother in the house. It’s hard to predict what she’ll come up with next, but when it came to her 3rd birthday celebration, she and I decided… Read More

Year in the Rear View

What a wild and crazy year for Pink Peppermint Paper! We finished our first full year of blogging and celebrated our fourth year in the stationery business both in late October. I worked with lots of great folks who make me feel so appreciated and creative even when I don’t always see those things in… Read More

Heroes and Villains, The Final Chapter

We return for the final installment of our story to find our super friends eyeing the fantastic candy buffet. A stroke of creative brilliance by no other than, you guessed it, supermom. Super candy with an element of danger and complete with superhero toothbrushes? Seriously, it doesn’t get much cuter than this. Except for maybe… Read More

Bug Out Birthday

I’m giving Lauren a much-needed break, so I’ll be the one to tell you about her son’s second birthday! Quite frankly, there’s some gushing to be done, and it’s much easier to gush about someone else’s party than it is your own. The party was so very cute, and I have so many pictures that… Read More
