oh joy!

Two things… 1.) Have you all seen Oh Joy’s! Collection for Target?  So colorful and perfect for Spring!  I am so elated to see when a fellow blogger makes their dreams come true.  2.) Have you seen pictures of the party that she threw for her launch?  I can’t even find the words.

Sleepover Invitations

It’s hard to believe it’s been three months already, but I am finally getting around to posting pictures of E’s sleepover.


All of the invitations and party printables were custom made and will be available online soon.  If you are looking to purchase them immediately, email me.  We were able to make so many decorations from the printable package.  I loved how everything turned out!

sleepover cupcakes

We attached cutouts of the pillow design from the invitation to lollipop sticks from Michael’s and used them as cupcake toppers.

Sleepover Party Favors

We filled these boxes from Michael’s with all kinds of spa goodies.  We wrapped the tops in paper from the printables.

I printed paper and glued them together to make a table runner.


We mod podged the same paper to a cardboard E from JoAnn’s… and also used it for the banners.S'mores Boxes

We made individual s’mores packages for each girl.  You can get the boxes here.

We made several attempts to dip the balloons in glitter.  The first prototypes had way more glitter, but I didn’t account for the weight of the glitter weighing down the balloons.  This was the most glitter that we could apply and still allow them to float.  Flowers

life is a blur.

Sometimes I feel like I need to check in with my iPhone to see if things in my life really happened.  That is the case last weekend-  I arrived home from NYC at midnight on Thursday and scurried for the next 36 hours to pull together E’s birthday party as well as a porch photoshoot.  Despite an amazing level of stress, fast food, acne and lack of showers- we got it done.  I can’t wait to show you all the pictures!  Here’s what I do have (from my iPhone.)
