Mermaid Party

It’s that time of year again! Little-O is already FOUR!!

Let me show you how I organized and “designed” her birthday party.. It turned out so cute!!


Well, this little girl has been OBSESSED with The Little Mermaid lately. So much so that I have to sing The Little Mermaid to her every night. With it being in May, I was hoping to have a nice outdoor party with hopefully some water! After all, it IS a mermaid party..

But the Birthday gods let me down now the second year in a row.

Luckily, I was a little more prepared than I was at Last Years Frozen Party… So I had plenty of indoor activities to do- Just in case. And boy was I glad I did!! Cause it was rainy and FREEZING the day of the party!

A baby shower for Kali

Can you believe I was crazy enough to host two different parties at my house within an hour of each other?
Well, I can’t believe it either- but I pulled it off! With style too! This party was a baby shower for my younger sister, Kali. She was visiting the family here from Texas, and she wouldn’t be returning until after the baby is born. And, I shouldn’t expect anything different- she likes to do things different than anybody else-she has been this way her whole life- a natural born leader.  So since everyone likes to find out the gender of the baby these days, she decided she wants it to be a surprise.
BTW- do you know how HARD it is to plan a gender neutral party these days?!??! It is like gender neutral décor DOES NOT EXIST ANYMORE!
I asked her what she was thinking the theme of her nursery as going to be- and she gave me a quote from E.E. Cummings about the stars and the moon. So I took it and went with it!  Check it out!

IT’S A FROZEN PARTY!

Well, I don’t know about you… but my daughter is OBSESSED with Frozen. Like, those songs are permanently embedded in my brain from listening to them on repeat. I even find myself singing along to them in my head throughout the day.. for no apparent reason! WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME??

Anyways… When it came time for O to tell me her birthday party ideas, you know this one just burst out of her mouth before I could even finish asking the question… Frozen it is!

I had a lot of fun designing the invite and other ideas for the party. It was supposed to be a nice, fun outdoor party in the backyard- but the weather decided to DOWN POUR the day of. So we ended up having it in our unfinished basement- not my first choice to throw a cute party… but it was really the ONLY choice…

So, here you go- I hope it sparks some ideas in your head for your daughters who are just as obsessed with the movie as mine is!

Enjoy!

Mel’s Retirement Party!

 I was hired to design and organize an awesome retirement party for an awesome guy!!

Mel was officially retiring, and his wife wanted to make sure it was a special day for him! Mel loves to go fishing, and I am sure he will be taking advantage of his free time to go out and enjoy the fresh air and water; so I decided to make “GONE FISHING” the party theme!

I am so frustrated that I can’t find the invitations I made for this event. It isn’t on my computer ANYWHERE. (insert sad face here) but it was a super cute “GONE FISHING” themed invite.

 

Because most of the people Mel wanted to see were customers, we decided to do an Open House on a Friday- so that his customers could stop in and wish him a “Happy Retirement” throughout the work day.

Luckily, I had a bunch of fishing décor that I stole from J-mans bedroom, and I made all the printables on my computer.

Check it out!
