This little birthday girl, Whitley, is such a sweetie and can make your heart melt with just one look into those big blue eyes. Her parents joke that she can also be a little stinker, getting into mischief and keeping them constantly on their toes. So, for Whitley’s 1st birthday party, her mom, Andrea, knew just which theme to go with – little monsters!
Andrea picked out the My Little Monsters in Purple Kids Birthday Invitations and used pink and purple as the theme for her little girl’s birthday party ideas.
To celebrate springtime in Minnesota, this first birthday party was held outdoors. The front door was decorated as a one-eyed monster and there were various tables set up for gifts, food, and areas for guests to sit. Andrea had ordered Monster Bash Kids Party Decorations and personalized them with pink to match the invitation. Big sister, Mylah (4), was in charge of sticking the party decor to the garage doors while Andrea stuck them to the tables.
We’ve all gotten them in the mail. The Christmas cards with the wonderfully sunny photos that make us think of warm breezes and summer vacations. Why not be that family this year?
All you have to do is remember to take a few photos while on your summer vacation. No pre-planning or pressure involved, unless of course you can’t resist a few props or wardrobe ideas. But the idea is to show off your spontaneous fun-loving side, and let friends and family know you didn’t sit on the couch all year. Here’s proof! Continue reading
Treat day in the office! These are some of our favorite days to see what our co-workers can craft up in the kitchen. This treat day was themed red, white and blue in honor of the upcoming holiday, Independence Day. Here are a few of our 4th of July food ideas that are easy to make and add to the colorful decor!
1. Layered Drinks: to achieve this look fill your cup with ice and pour in lemonade, fruit punch and Gatorade. Be sure to pour slowly and you can read more information here. Add a fun straw to top it off!
2. American Flag Dip: this idea is easy to do as well! Cut up red peppers to make stripes, add humus to be the white stripes, and blue corn chips for the blue area. Such a fun and patriotic idea your guests will adore.

It all started when, Kristin, the mom of a grad sent a message that left us teary eyed, “I just received my order and I have sat at my desk crying for 10 minutes because my daughter’s graduation invitations are so beautiful and perfect.” With that comment we just had to know more about her daughter and what kind of party she was planning so we reached out to see if she would like to be one of our Featured Favorites. She gladly accepted and we featured her daughter’s graduation announcement along with her story. After talking further with Kristin, we asked if she would share photos from her daughter’s graduation party, and again she gladly accepted . Kristin sent us the graduation party photos saying, “It was a HUGE success and the talk of the town!” We are excited to share her graduation party ideas with you!
Morgan had a joint graduation party with her two friends. They took photos of the three girls and chose to use our Trifold Dots Graduation Invitation. They coordinated the colors in the invitation to match their clothing. What beautiful seniors!
Each grad had their own table, set up with her personal accomplishments and photos. We loved the light-up initials!
