Real Party: Modern Safari Ladies Night

Chris Nease from Celebrations at Home sent me this darling “modern safari” party she styled for her monthly ladies night.  It’s full of amazing DIY ideas that could be used for a bridal shower or birthday party.

Real Party: Pirate Princess Party

Today’s party is just adorable!  Sent to me by a Nashville, Tennessee mom – it’s a birthday party fit for pirates and princesses!  Her 3 year old requested this theme all on her own (which I think is quite adorable and creative!), and it immediately conjured up images of eye patches and [...]

Lemon Tarts

 

With the weather getting nicer everyday, I find my self suddenly craving my very favorite dessert….a lemon tart.  It’s light, citrus-y flavor makes this the perfect Spring/Summer dessert and I always find myself counting down the Winter months until it’s “appropriate” to bring this favorite dessert back into rotation!
