Here we go again! I'm planning another party which means I need more decoration ideas which leads to more pins to my pin board and of course, more DIY attempts by your's truly. This time I wrapped a cardboard number 1 in yarn. Easy right? We'll see about that!
Ohh Pinterest. You tricky, tricky witch. You are so full of ideas and "easy" DYI decorations and perfect tablescapes for parties, how I love to loathe you. Last year we went all out for my older daughter's first birthday and this year I wanted to "scale back". We may have cut down the number of invites but did I really scale back? You be the judge!
The letter of the day is B for birthday! We recently celebrated my daughter's second birthday and we spent her special day at "Elmo's house" (Sesame Place in Langhorne, PA). Thinking of taking your toddler to Sesame Place? Let me tell you all the ways you can make their day even more exciting with a flick of Abby's magic wand!
If you've watched any programming on TLC over the past 10 years you've seen at least one commercial for "Say Yes to the Dress". Filmed at Kleinfeld Bridal in NYC the series shows brides of all shapes, sizes, and backstories shopping for their wedding gown. If they find one they love? They are ultimately asked one very important question, "are you saying yes to the dress?"
DIY Feather Centerpieces
I'm at it again folks! Trying my best to recreate pins I find on Pinterest and sharing the results. Recently we baptized our second daughter and since baptisms occur so early in the day (and on Sundays) it isn't really feasible to get flowers for the centerpieces, shops aren't open that early (or at all) for delivery in the morning and while we could have gotten them the day prior, I was afraid they may have started to droop and wilt overnight. So I started searching on Pinterest for non-floral centerpiece ideas that seemed easy enough to make on my own.
Recently I had an interesting thing happen to me. I was given a surprise party in my house. I had no idea, I was not expecting it and quite frankly I'm pretty impressed that my family was able to pull this off. So much so that I'm sharing tips on how you too can throw a surprise party for someone, in their own home.
