candy skewer valentines

Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day. Here is what my little one took to school for valentines. Candy Skewers. These are a fun colorful way to do something easy (a little time consuming though) but unique. We selected various gummy candies and then put them on a lollipop stick, covered with a pretzel bag and tied off with Divine Twine. The final touch was a straw flag for the "you're tweet" note. I also created a few other valentine tags - goody bag labels and party circles.

ben's first party

The perfect theme for any one year old's birthday is Cake and Balloons. It seems that every little one loves balloons and the classic photo opp for a first birthday is the smashing of the cake. This little boy was no exception, he even had two coordinating onesies; one for before cake and one for after. My favorite party extra was the adorable party hat.

robert's dino party

This dinosaur themed birthday party was taking place at a gynmastics studio. We tied the themes together by having the dinosaur standing on a gymnastics mat. Party circles, favor tags, and a banner accessorized the party.
