With just under two weeks to go, Reeves' 2nd birthday party is closing in on me fast! Akk! I'm in that "things are cookin'" stage, but not much is completely finished as of yet. I have things half checked off the list, but still have alot of loose ends to tie up before I call it quits on my crazy party planning agenda.  Here are a couple of sneek peeks for you in the meantime though.

The ticket "cake" will be part of the centerpiece for the kids' table. (I haven't had one in the past and I thought it would be nice to have a table set up just for the kids to partake in the birthday cake eating festivities this year).  I'm loving my newly painted clearance aisle pedestal! She was a dreary shade of deep red when I rescued her but a little paint and I'm in love! Think I'll keep her around.





Cupcake toppers, a redone folding screen and some tissue pom poms ready to be fluffed along with some fun retro paper stripey straws are just a few of the other party details I've been working on and gathering up.




I gotta get busy folding up some more pom poms and all kinds of other crazy stuff, 'cause that's what us party-crazed people do for those nearest and dearest to us.  Ok, ok, I'll admit it....I just love dreaming up and executing a great-looking party, and as it turns out, having little ones around gives me the perfect excuse reason to completely lose myself in visions of pretty cakes, clever decorations and all of the other over-the-top goodness I see necessary to pull off a fun party. I mean, how many times does your baby turn two, I ask you?? I suppose the same could be said for three, four, ten or eighty, but whatever. Just go with it. That's most assuredly what I will be reminding my husband of the night before the party while I'm in a full blown panic over one thing or another and he has to deal with me. Sadly, I don't forsee any change coming in that department this year either. Oh well.  Love you, hubby! Hang in there with me! It'll all be over soon. :)


Thought for Thursday

The time has come, friends!

Monday, June 13, 2011

So we are back from our family vacation to the beach and it was a wonderful trip! I wasn't sure how we would all do with 10 hours of driving time, but I'm happy to report that it was quite pleasant. Our boys had the time of their lives playing in all that sand and water. Here are a few photos of that excursion.

Reeves loved all that sand! A humongo sandbox just for him.
Here he is mesmerized by a kite flying above.




The wonderful man who made the fun week possible! Thanks for lugging all the beach gear up and down the beach, hubby! It was for a great cause. Our boys had a wonderful time!


Excited about getting to that beach with his dump truck!




So, it's back to business this week and I couldn't be more excited to start out this monday with a newly completed blog and shop look to share with you all!!! Shalon of Pretty Lovely Design did a tremendous job for me and I'm so happy with the end product! Thank you so much for your patience with me, Shalon!!
I know I am one picky gal, but you stuck with me and I appreciate you!

So, with a new blog and shop look HAS to come some fun new products, right?!!
I'm really excited about these new ideas for parties...and since summertime means party time for alot of families, I thought it was the right time to bring out these fun cupcake toppers/keepsakes. Not only are they unique, cute and all of that stuff, but they also serve a secondary purpose....guests get to take home their topper as a keepsake of the birthday milestone! Since birthday parties include close friends and family, these are wonderful little keepsakes to remember the big day.

First up are the Pop Star Cupcake Toppers!








Here's one for the boys...err...make that Superheros!








Also new in the shop are these super sweet little cupcake keepsake boxes. Give one to the ultimate cupcake lover in your life filled with treats or perhaps a nice pair of earrings....the list goes on. It makes a great little decorative hiding spot for any little girl's room. Personalized with up to five photos.






So there you have it! Lots of fun stuff around the shop this week!
Have a great Monday!
