Ruby Mae’s Lisa Frank Birthday!

My sweet cheeky boo boo recently turned four. Because time is an asshole. She had recently become really excited by Lisa Frank when she received a sweet Lisa Frank coloring book because…Lisa Frank. And Unicorns. This year’s party was very low key in terms of size & decor, but I have to say it was the most fun and least anxiety inducing of all the kids birthday parties. Maybe we’re onto something here.

Jude’s Modern Dinosaur Birthday Party!

First of all, I can’t believe my little baby cheeky boo boo is FIVE guys. FIVE. I’m not sure why but FIVE seems so much more alarming than four felt. This year, we decided to keep Jude’s party smaller and more easy-going, just his style. We threw the party at a local new Dinosaur themed park, which the kids loved. Jude is a simple guy, he cares most about his family, close friends and treats.

Snack to School Party with California Raisins!

Recently, the kids and I had the pleasure of being invited to a California Raisin’s #SnackToSchool party! There are so many wonderful reasons raisins make a great snack! California Raisins are an all-natural, dried-by-the-sun fruit you can feel good about sending with your kids as they head back to school or offering as an after-school snack. The ingredient list says it all: Raisins. Convenient and portable, California Raisins are a great choice for wholesome, healthy, on-the-go snacking. They are a great value, too. According to the USDA, raisins are the most economical dried fruit. California Raisins come by their sweetness naturally. With California Raisins, the nutrition label tells a great story: Zero fat, no cholesterol and no added sugar. Plus, raisins offer 9% of your daily fiber and potassium, and 6% of your daily iron (per quarter cup serving). In fact, research suggests that among children, eating raisins as an after-school snack may prevent excessive calorie intake and may increase satiety (or feeling full) when compared to other common snacks, including cookies and chips.
When we first arrived at the party, Jude & Ruby were so excited about the raisin snacks!

Our favorite was the Trail Mix Bar! What an adorable idea, much healthier than a candy station for a party.

My personal favorite snack was this epic pumpkin raisin bread. I’m totally one of those weirdos that likes pumpkin things year round.

After we finished drooling over the snacks, we made our way to the different school themed party stations. The kids loved coloring the California Raisin and designing a name tag for their lunch boxes! If you’d like to grab your own free California Raisin printables on their Facebook Page.

Of course, the overall highlight for Jude & Ruby was getting to meet the California Raisin. Jude came running up to me and yelled, “He’s here! He’s here!!”

Fashionable Festivities: Walker’s Vintage Star Wars Themed 1st Birthday Party! Free Printables!

In early March I had the pleasure of throwing a vintage Star Wars themed birthday party for Walker, my adorable client.

Cookies by  Bake My Day and cake by All Occasion Cakes!

Photos by  Amanda Rose Photography! Check out her Photography Blog & like Amanda Rose Photography.

I was thrilled when Maria, Walker’s Mom, hired me to help plan his Vintage Star Wars Party! Maria was able to find some really awesome authentic vintage party supplies and posters (thanks internet!) that I think blend in a cool, eclectic vibe with the items I made. My favorite thing I made was the large navy “W” marquee light! It’s hard to tell in these photos, but it fully lights up. I also made an awesome Death Star Pinata and pool noodle light sabers that aren’t pictured.
