evie’s ‘bow-tique’ birthday party

evie's bow themed birthday party

The timing of our trip to visit Jordan and her family was perfect- we arrived the night before Evie’s third birthday and got to be there for her birthday party (lucky us!). Evie’s bow themed birthday party was inspired by her love of Minnie Mouse’s “Bow-tique.” MENU All of Evie’s favorite foods made their way [...]

garden tea birthday party

garden tea birthday party

My girls are the ultimate party planners and love to come up with themes for their birthday parties. As I mentioned, for Keadryn’s sixth birthday she decided she wanted a garden party (not a gardening party, but a tea party in the garden like they have in Britain). I have no idea where she got [...]

madeline in paris birthday party

Piper Jane is absolutely smitten with Paris and Madeline (the children’s books by Ludwig Bemelmans) and has been asking for a Madeline party since, well, since her Sprinkle Party last year! And what a fun party to put together! After the Denver shower, and now this Paris party, I am fully in love with locale-based [...]

farmer’s market birthday party

market party

Our Littlest Miss, Evie Kate, is turning two this month. Of course, a Happy Second Birthday Party was an order. Evie’s very favorite thing is our local grocery store (in the middleeast), “Lulu’s.” And since birthday parties are the perfect chance to celebrate the affections of the teeniest guest of honor, ‘market party’ became our [...]

kung fu panda birthday party

panda birthday party

So this party happened in June. And we’re just getting the pictures up now. Better late than never, right? Have I mentioned that I love it when Jordan and I have the chance to throw parties together? Since there is this giant, pesky ocean between us, it doesn’t happen much. But when we are together, [...]

bicycle birthday party (in aqua, red and pink)

bicycle themed birthday party

Both Burke and Piper Jane adore our friend from church, Miss Hazel (they tell me a hundred times a day, “Baby Hazel so cu-ute!”). And I love Hazel’s mama, Liz (of retro garden baby shower fame- she was the mama-to-be). So helping Liz put together Hazel’s bicycle birthday party was a super fun joint venture! [...]

sayla’s puppy party

puppy party

As I said yesterday, Sayla requested a puppy for her birthday (I think Kead set her up to it), but we are not at a place in our lives to add a new family member so we opted for a puppy party instead. It was a fabulous success. I mean, little girls staring out the [...]

kojo tutorial- how to make sprinkle covered accessories

how to make sprinkle covered buttons

I might’ve mentioned once or twice that Miss Piper Jane has quite the sweet tooth (maybe it’s a good thing that her dad’s a dentist?). I have to admit, I share her sweet tooth tendencies and even her affection for sprinkles. Of course, my Sprinkle Princess required some sprinkled accessories for her Sprinkle Party. A [...]

sprinkled with love birthday party

sprinkled with love party by kojodesigns

We laughed when Piper Jane asked for a “Sprinkle” themed birthday party. Her sweet tooth is renowned in these parts (second only to her mama’s), so a sprinkle party is perfectly suited for the Little Miss Priss’ second birthday celebration. Decked out in some sprinkle accessories- a sprinkle barrette and sprinkle corsage- the birthday girl [...]

Oh Snap! a camera and photography party

oh snap camera party

I already mentioned that Jordan and I are nuts sometimes let our love of throwing parties together get the best of us. This shared hostessing bent is expressed in different ways- sometimes it means making elaborate Thanksgiving place settings, sometimes it means a windy, not-quite-finished Around the World party disaster (we haven’t put that story [...]
