This garden party was to celebrate a dear friend turning 30.  My co-hosts; her husband and a friend, planned a day of relaxing with pedicures and a movie that ended with this surprise party. We thought it would be a wonderful way to celebrate this expecting mom who loves to garden.  I was so glad we were able to surprise her.  The party was held in the beautiful garden of my friend and cohost. This made a picturesque setting for an outdoor summer soiree for this lovely lady.

Woodland Birthday Party Theme, One is Wonderful

This Woodland Birthday Party was for the perfect first birthday party theme for my beautiful niece Delphine. I adore the decorations, they are so sweet and would a great baby shower theme too. I loved putting everything together. A Fun, feminine color scheme with oranges, pinks and touches of turquoise and gold. Girly and soft without being overly loud. It all started when I was shopping at Target and came across a sheet set with woodland animals in flower crowns (as you can see from the photo backdrop). Instantly I fell in love with the idea of it being a party theme. A boho, nature vibe that

These past weekends I was able to celebrate many amazing birthdays, but right now I want to share this 30th birthday backyard beer tasting party with you. This beer tasting party was to celebrate our wonderfully kind and thoughtful friend Mick turning thirty. With all these local breweries popping up what better way then asking guests to bring a growler of their favorite local beer. This party we had guests that were widespread in location, so it was great trying beers from breweries you may not get to try. I also made free printables at the bottom of this post so you can have your own backyard beer tasting party. Thanks to the help of my co-hosts, another couple and Mick’s girlfriend, I think we pulled off a pretty great  surprise party.

I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and if you were celebrating with a Kentucky Derby party like we did, that you were betting on Always Dreaming! I wanted to share with you the outcome of our run for the roses party  to watch the most exciting two minutes in sports. In my previous posts I had the free derby printables with the horse bios and betting sheets to get everyone involved and in the derby mood. The horse bios were placed in frames that I had above the food table along with a felt “run for the roses” banner I made. I also put some red roses in a mint julep cup from amazon, Oggi Mint Julep Cup, 12 oz, Stainless Steel to give it some extra derby flair.

Table Decorations

For the table I made a tablecloth from fabric that I bought at Free Shipping on orders $35+.  I also bought on Amazon this preserved moss mat that I cut in half lengthwise and laid both on the table to make a longer and narrower runner for the table.  Fun Express Vinyl Plastic Horses Toy – 12 Pieces, from Amazon were

The run for the roses is only a few days away and I’m excited to pull out a big hat and some bourbon. To help get in the spirit of the derby I decided to include a little friendly wager among friends by making some FREE printables that I wanted to share with you for your own Derby Party. I have created three printable sheets, the first being a betting sheet where guests can write their name to enter their bets and the other two are pages list a little information on all 24 horses to help everyone decide who to bet on if they aren’t familiar with the horses. All the information and images are from KentuckyDerby.com but its nice to have everything together that’s easy to display.its nice to have everything together that’s easy to display.

I wanted betting rules to be easy so I decided that each person can give an set bet amount to place a bet on a horse by writing their name next to the horses name. Any guest canmake multiple bets on horses name. Any guest canmake multiple bets on an set bet amount to place a bet on a horse by writing their name next to the horses name.

Make Ahead Brunch Menu

Previously, I posted the decorations from the Galentine’s Day brunch I hosted to celebrate lady friendships. Today I want to share with you the easy make ahead menu to make things a little more stress free. In case you missed it, Galentine’s Day is February 13th according to Leslie Knope from the show Parks and Recs to celebrate the ladies in our lives. We celebrated a little late but there is never a bad time to celebrate friends or have brunch.  There is also a great TedTalk on the importance of lady friendships between Jane Fona and Lily Tomlin that is just too funny.

This brunch menu was pretty simple and easy to make in advance so you can enjoy  time with your guests. I like to make some items from scratch and buying others to make hosting easy. Here is the brunch menu breakdown:

Galentine’s Blush Pink Brunch Decorations

 

For any of you that have watched Parks and Recs, you may recall the episode about Galentine’s Day being February 13th to celebrate the ladies in your life. Here’s a clip of the show where Leslie describes what Galentine’s Day is all about.

Galentine’s day is the 13th which fell on a Monday this year, so I decided to host a late Galentine’s day Sunday Brunch with a neutral palette of creams and light pinks. The neutral blush decor with brunch would also work great for a bridal shower or baby shower as well. Here’s a break down of all the decorations for this day time get together.

This was hung with frame command strips to not damage the walls for this temporary art. Below shows photos if this little
