Butterfly Birthday

Having three little boys I don't get to use much pink around my home, so when my sister asked me to help with my niece's 2nd birthday party I was super excited. We started by choosing a pink and purple butterfly theme. I contacted Gretchen of Chichiboulie to see if she would be willing to provide some of her wonderful artwork for the invitation. Since then Gretchen and I have worked together on a couple projects and I hope to do more soon. Her illustrations are so whimsical and added the perfect touch to the invitation. I also was excited to have an excuse to make some tissue paper peonies which were beautiful during the party and now add to the decor in my niece's playroom. All in all it was a party fit for a special little girl! For the rest of the party details see below.

Invitation custom made by Busy Bee Paperie & Chichiboulie.

Carnival Party!

This party all started with a cake! My 4 year old twins were looking at pictures from our favorite bakery and stumbled across their fabulous popcorn cake. After picking the cake and listening to their pleas of having their 4th birthday party at a bounce house party facility I decided the best way to combine the two was to do a carnival theme. This was the first time I have held a birthday party outside of my home and it was awesome! My twins birthday falls during early spring which is usually cold and rainy here so we are limited with what we can do at home. Monkey Joe's provided an great party atmosphere and the kids loved it! Of course I had to bring along my own party decor goodie bags! See below for all the party details.

Invitations were custom made by Busy Bee Paperie.
Party Decor was made from a printable party package from Dimple Prints.
Popcorn Goodie Bags were made from popcorn containers purchased from Hobby Lobby, candy from a local candy shop, and tiny popcorn bags filled with good old puffy corn.
