I get questions about how I made the pom pom garland from the Sprinkle Party all the time. It isn’t tricky to put together, but I thought I’d put together a quick step by step to answer all of the questions. To make one, make a pile of pom poms (you guys know how I [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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! [...]

sprinkled with love birthday party

Right now my house is a fun, crazy, party-planning head quarters. Over the next 6 weeks we have a party or shower every weekend. I love it! This weekend we had a little pinata party for our friend, Joey who turned 5 this month. My favorite parts of the party? The mini pinata favors: (we used [...]

tutorial- make cloth napkins from fat quarters

When I saw this “Reunion” fabric line (by Sweetwater for Moda Fabrics) at Southern Fabric, my first thought was of backyard entertaining- the classic palette, plethora of geometrics, and even a bunting or two have such a great summer-y vibe. With several fat quarters from this line, I whipped up some cloth napkins with a [...]

About 4 months ago Keadryn and I started talking about Evie’s birthday party. She is going to be a party planner, I can feel it. She loves the brainstorming phase (which happens to be my favorite part as well, so we really bond over it). She had a lot of ideas for what our theme [...]

retro garden baby shower

Y’all saw little glimpses of this vintage-fabulous baby shower last week. I am not exaggerating when I say that this is one of my favorite baby showers I’ve helped put together. Liz, the Guest of Honor, is a girl after my own heart. She sews, decorates, and repurposes like a champ- the perfect person to [...]
