Just Sayin'

So, I've just happened to notice that we've been sitting pretty with 95 followers for a while now. What's the chances of getting to 100 by the end of the month?!? {That's 2.5 more days people} I know there has to be a least 5 of you who check in from time to time and have never clicked follow. Here's your chance...help me get to 100 followers before April ends!

Who will be #100?!?

Tell your friends, tell your family, tell your co-workers, tell anyone who will listen. Lol

Party full of COLOR

Lately I've had a few friends ask about ideas for birthdays and baby showers. So what do I do...I search the web for ideas! A friend of mine is planning a luau themed baby shower and another is planning birthday party. What kid doesn't like color? And hello, when I think luau, I think COLOR!

There are so many great ideas with color and rainbows. And it just so happened that Spearmint Baby had a post about this recently and I loved some of her ideas.

Here are a few of my finds....
(If you click the links it will take you to WAY more great ideas...PROMISE!)


I loved this idea of an Art Birthday Party. And how easy?! Just get some cardboard, crayons, markers, paints (If your brave) and let the kids become artists. Should occupy them for a while PLUS its a great party favor...






Disclaimer: I am fully aware that it is a Luau BABY Shower...you cold substitute the beverages or keep them for the adults. :)

I hope you enjoy the ideas...I have LOVED this theme. Happy Planning!!

It's In The Details

I had the most amazing pleasure of helping my good friend Alicia plan her twin boys first birthday party. She did her research, and got tons of great ideas from the blog world. There are so many great ideas you can get from blogs and then make them your own!

The theme was a play on words...Hole in ONE {for their first b-day} and Par-Tee...get it, a golf theme! Everything was sooo detailed and well thought out. It was just perfect! I wanted to share with you all the details of creating this Hole in ONE Par-tee.

As each guest came this is what they were greeted to...

Our Clubhouse Menu. 
Follow the arrows to the backyard.








We took each guests picture under the L & H Country Club sign

This is the inside set up.

 The backdrop was an idea I got from Katie
{I think Alicia found it somewhere too, so it must be a great idea floating around}








The Cupcakes were absolutely adorable. 
We put a flags behind both highchairs. The flags were on dowel rods, placed in a tins filled with sand. Each flag had the kids initial on it.


Outdoor Details...
Powered Donuts in a tin can {to look like golf balls}
#1 Hole filled with sand a golf balls for the kids to dig
Thank you Cookies
Tables set up for eating and mingling
Each table had the cutest little center pieces filled with treats.
