I’m pretty sure you’re all fully aware that I’m a sucker for a great party. Which naturally means I’m a total goner when it comes to amazing kid’s parties. (To illustrate that point, I’ve featured more than a few over the past few years.) I love the excuse to bust out loads of color and cheer without even having to pretend to be the grown-ups we’re supposed to be. Throw in oversized balloons, bits of confetti, a dosing of glitter and, well, …

I just stumbled upon this birthday party inspiration board from Grey Likes Baby and thought it was just the prettiest thing. Soft shades of blush and ivory paired with the sweetest touches of tulle and glitter is the perfect inspiration for a completely girly celebration that avoids feeling bubble gum or overdone. I love this!

Loving Birthday Cake

Loving Birthday Cake

Good morning, friends! Today I have to wish a big happy birthday to my little sister. She moved away for the first time earlier this year so it’s her first birthday away from home. So I figured, why not celebrate with her from afar by sharing a whole bunch of birthday cakes that had me at hello? When all else fails, a great cake makes for an instant (and totally awesome) party. Happy birthday, ‘Lil! xoxo

A Cake Decorating Party

A Cake Decorating Party

The sweet Andrea of Strawberry Chic (who shared the awesome DIY pencil holder with us not too long ago) recently planned the loveliest party for her little sister and her friends. A cake decorating party! Each guest got her own mini cake on a pretty little platter and Andrea taught them all a few basic frosting techniques like how to make frosting ruffles and roses. Isn’t this unbelievably fun? It’d be a great idea for a birthday party or even …

It sings of long summer days, childhood, creamsicles melting in the heat of July, and days when our biggest worries were whether to go with the purple or the blue crayon. (Personally, I always went pink.) Tin Can Treats is a Nashville company renting out their vintage camper, a 1965 Shasta Airflyte named …
