Milk + Cookies First Birthday

Lauren and I recently gave our friend Sarah a little inspiration for her son’s first birthday. Her youngest boy, Caleb, just turned one, and mama had a sweet and simple clutter cutting celebration on the brain. Sarah introduced us to the Milk + Bookies Birthday Party, a concept that has party goers bring new books… Read More

Simple Easter Party

Here are a few ideas for quick and easy food and decorations. Here’s one of the tables. The plates were all ears. Super quick, cheap… Read More

Bunny Plates + Template

My 3 year old’s teacher asked if I could coordinate an Easter party for her class this year. It was three weeks out, which I told myself was a good thing. No need going overboard here.

Winter-inspired Princess Party

It’s hard to believe it’s already time again for my Christmas baby’s birthday party! Really does seem like not that long ago we hosted the silhouette-themed birthday brunch for close friends and family.  We held the celebration on her birthday (December 27th) last year because we already had everyone in town for the holidays.
