Baby Shower Feature: A Wee Woodland Critter and a Mama-to-be

Whimsical Acorn Critter Wooden Letter Collage

This mama-to-be (since become mama – welcome Baby Daniel!) is always, always glowing. Baby bump or not. This delightfully darling shower was put together by her doting sister, who happens to be my best friend since high school (long, long ago for us). I showed up a few hours early to help set up and […]

Baby Shower Feature: Something Borrowed, Something Blue {Welcome Babe Number 2}

Something Borrowed Something Blue Baby Shower-6938

I love unique themes.  When Grandma-to-be suggested “Something Borrowed, Something Blue,” I couldn’t have been happier to get started. Something Old:  You will find lots of little vintage bits throughout the celebration. Something New:  Presents!! Something Borrowed:  We asked guests to bring gently used items for baby brother. Something Blue:  Blue… lots of blue. Cake […]

Birthday Feature: Goodbye Roaring 20s {a glitz and glam 30th birthday celebration}

Clinton's 30th Birthday-1073-2

I don’t always throw costume parties… … but when I do, they are incredible! My husband chose a 1920s theme for his 30th birthday.  So here is what I did: I requested a rather tricky design from my favorite custom cake designer, Stellar Cakes and Cupcakes. I told Stella I wanted a shimmery gold cake, […]

Holiday Feature: A Very Merry Tailgating Christmas {GO HO HO Seahawks!}

Pete Carroll Nutcracker with Scoreboard-0333

 The time for holiday parties is upon us! Christmas trees, stockings, mistletoe, bright lights and, of course, FOOTBALL! One day a week I work for my husband’s family’s business, Gary’s Process Service.  Yesterday we had our annual Christmas party, but switched it up a bit.  My in-laws decided to go a little less fancy and […]

Wedding Feature: Laura & Ray {A Playful, Rustic Affair}

Laura & Ray - Dessert Chalkboard - Indulge

This past weekend I styled a beautifully rustic and fun-filled wedding reception brunch. The fun loving couple – Laura & Ray – wanted a celebration focused on delicious food and good times with some rustic flare.  The Field House in Enumclaw, WA was the perfect venue for them! Cheesecloth, cheesecloth, cheesecloth! We used 200 yards […]

Birthday Party Feature: 64 Zoo Lane Inspired 3rd Birthday Bash

64 Zoo Lane Cake Collage (1)

64, 64, 64 Zoo Lane! We love watching 64 Zoo Lane on PBS at our house.  I feel like it is not as hugely popular as it should be!  It is an absolutely adorable children’s show about a little girl, Lucy, who lives on 64 Zoo Lane.  She slides down Georgina the Giraffe’s neck each […]

Baby Shower Feature: Sweet Pink and Grey Safari Soiree

Girl Safari Baby Shower Cake Topper Collage

I love styling baby showers.  They are so sweet and innocent.  The start of something perfect and so loved. This particular celebration was designed to celebrate baby Alaiyah, my niece, who has since arrived as of July 30th {I am a little behind on my blog posts, clearly}. I had been eyeing a pink giraffe […]

Music Party Photo Booth with Birthday Girl-7394

Remember the drum dessert cups I made? How about the fabulous faux marquee sign? Well the celebration has officially come and gone and it was a major hit! I have some great photos of all the fun, but sadly, we shall have to wait. The amazing Kara at Kara’s Party Ideas has chosen to feature […]

Tutorial: DIY Faux Marquee Sign

Live Faux Marquee Sign

Who doesn’t want to see their name in lights? This was a pretty simple project and it turned out just as I pictured. The tutorial I ended up following was a sign made for an Oscars party on Fiskars website designed by Lisa Storms.  There are several other fantastic movie themed DIY projects in Lisa’s […]
