This Alice in Wonderland Tea Party was for my daughter Camdyn's 4th birthday party. 
This was my favorite party to plan! 

The kids dressed up as characters from the story! 
 The Cheshire Cat, Alice, and the White Rabbit.

I created a Royal Croquet Court outside with Flamingo mallots and the deck of cards.

The banner, drink me flags, water bottle labels, food labels, matching invitation
and thank you notes will be on my new Etsy shop soon!

The Tea Party!

 Wonderland decor for the whimsical transformation!

For activities, the kids decorated Mad Hatter Hats and painet a tea cup planter! 
 Each child got their own tea cup planter to paint and take home.
 The kids loved painting the tea cups!

Some of my favorite Wonderland inspired foods!  The cake was AMAZING!!! 
 Not only was it adorable but it was delicious!
  The cake was created by Meri Wheeler.

Spring Baby shower

This was a baby shower I held for one of my best friends.  She did not know the sex of the baby so I went with yellow and green colors to make a fun spring time baby shower. 

Polka Dot Baby Shower

This was a baby shower I designed for my sister's 1st baby girl.  My sister was a textile designeer at the time so I stylin mama as my inspiration for her invitations and placemats.

Modern Easter Baskets

I wanted to create Easter baskets for my girls that were modern and a little out of the ordinary.  These baskets were so easy to do and turned out so cute!  I purchased unfinished boxes and wood circles at Michaels Craft store, painted and glued together.  My girls loved them!  They make great boxes to store toys and books in the bedrooms too! 

Tiffany Inspired 30th Birthday Party

This was a 30th surprise birthday party I held for my sister. 
 I used a Tiffany and Company inspired theme.........we called it Kiley and Co.  :-) 

Wizard of Oz Party

This Wizard of Oz party was for my daughter Camdyn's 3rd birthday party.  The entire house was transformed into Oz.  The kids skipped down the yelllow brick into a party of fun filled with rainbows!  Dorothy arrived at the party with songs and games for the kids to sing and play.  It was truly a party Somewhere Over the rainbow!


The food for the party was so much fun to prepare! Glinda magic wands,
Wicked Witch Hats, Scarecrow Dip, and of course, lots of rainbows!

Little Mermaid Under the Sea Party

This is a Little Mermaid birthday party I created for my daughter Teagan's 5th birthday. 
The entire house was a sea of blue!  We had so much fun partying under the sea! 

Jessie and Woody Round Up

This is a Jesse and Woody inspired Round Up I held for my daughter Teagan's 6th birthday.  The banner and cupcake holder were designed by Beth Kruse Custom Creations on Etsy.  We held the party at Hunter's Dream Equestrian Center.  The kids all wore their favorite cowgirl and cowboy attire, got to pet and feed the horses, followed by a ride around the indoor arena.  Everyone had so much fun!
