If you follow kojo on instagram, you’ve seen all sorts of sneak peaks of bunny making and my niece’s Snow Bunny first birthday party- today I’m going to share all of the cozy, snow bunny-ish details. Little Miss Josie lives here in Denver and it has been so fun to get to know her this [...]

the ultimate sangria bar- summer’s best drink station

After the Sangria Station at the Denver themed baby shower, I knew that we’d be doing another sangria bar sometime this summer. Sangria is just too summer-y, and refreshing (and great for a crowd) to pass up as a drink station at a party (or in this case, for a friend’s wedding!). I know I [...]

miss or mister gender reveal party

mister or miss gender reveal party

Ever since our baby sister found out she was pregnant, she was absolutely certain that they were adding another boy to their family. They were so sure that it was a boy that they decided to have a Miss or Mister? gender reveal party instead of waiting to find out the gender (like they did [...]

the sweetest thing chocolate themed baby shower

the sweetest thing chocolate themed baby shower by kojodesigns

My sister-in-law, Tricia, and I share a fond affection for macaroons. And ice cream. And oreos. And a whole list of other fabulous sweet treats. So this “Sweetest Thing” chocolate themed baby shower was right up her alley (and I don’t know if I’ve ever had so much fun putting together a shower menu, except [...]

how to make party signage (part 1)

how to design your own party signage

One of the most frequently asked questions in our kojo inbox (besides Can I pay you to make me an Anthro-inspired quilt/Everything Bag?) is How do you make your party signage (or party printables, or party labels, or cupcake toppers, etc.)? The short answer is that, through a process of trial and error, we now [...]

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

 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 [...]

sprinkled with love birthday party

"sprinkled with love" party, kojodesigns #party

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 [...]

easy summer entertaining- build your own burrito bar

build your own burrito bar

Lest you think that all of the parties around here have elaborate decor (or menus), I thought I’d share the Chipotle-esque (or Qdoba-esque, whichever you prefer) Build Your Own Burrito Bar from a going away party we hosted a couple weeks ago. Not only is it high on the ease-factor, the food is also exceedingly [...]

kojo tutorial- DIY cake pop stand

DIY cake pop stand

With my love for all things Cake Pop (and their frequent party appearances), I’ve been meaning to come up with a quick and easy (and cheap!) DIY Cake Pop Stand for awhile now. After putting a few functional-yet-easy-on-the-eyes cake pop stands together for Adam’s grad party, I’m sorry I waited so long to make them. [...]
