What a better way to bring in fall then with beer and soft pretzels German style and even involving the kiddos. This is the second Oktoberfest party we have hosted with another couple that we are very close to. If you’re planning a larger party like this with lots of food and friends, co-hosting makes it much more imaginable. For those of you not very familiar, Oktoberfest is a huge festival (over 6 million
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.

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

This first birthday comes to a close with a cake smash in front of a Peter Rabbit inspired photo backdrop. Watching this little guy enjoy his cake smash will bring a smile to anyone’s face.

Spring is officially here and I could not be more excited. After days of white snow and lifeless trees, seeing some spring inspiration, promising gardening and green is just what I like to see.

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:
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.

Seeing as our friend at times can have a flower child vibe it was decided to throw a Boho/Festival themed gathering consisting of a low table and floor seating on serape rugs and pillows. After searching I came up with a few things that I thought would really add to the boho Coachella like theme:
