I have been a busy bee this weekend working on some custom inspiration boards for clients. Everyone is having showers! Baby showers, couples baby showers and a few bridal showers thrown in for good measure. The board above was done as inspiration for my husband’s aunt – so I figured I could [...]

With all of my friends having young children, it’s easier to get together after “bedtime”. Which is the perfect excuse to host a dessert party! I love the idea of [...]

For a bit of nostalgia, base a party theme around a childhood love–like Raggedy Ann. Make sure to add in all of the cool details–like Raggedy Ann’s famous “I love you” heart as a cookie–without over doing the theme. Focus instead on a fun color combo, like red and aqua. [...]
