Ava's Tea Party is next Sat!

I am working with Photography by Caitlin Domanico on 'Ava's Tea Party' - It's in honor of and will benefit our favorite local charity, Mommys Light Lives on Fund.  This is going to be a mock tea party set up for a photo shoot.  I am busy coordinating flowers, linen, tea sets and other decor.  It's going to be a VERY hot day so we are also planning on lots of water, lemonade and a tent.

Stay tuned for pictures.

Twirly Whirly Fun

It's hard to choose a theme for a first birthday - most of the time the party is more for the parents.  For my daughters birthday I decided to Pinwheels as the theme; something fresh and whimsical!!  She looks fantastic in purple so I paired that with green and voila the party basics were formed.  

I ordered custom pinwheels from Pinwhirls, using damask and polka dots.
The idea for a banner came from This Mommy Loves! 

I ordered her onsie from Izzy B and I made her pinwheel headband out of fun foam.  I ordered purple and green lollipops from Oriental Trading.

There were tons of kids at the party; lots of 2 1/2 year olds and their craft project was to decorate a fun foam visor hat and their favor was a large lollipop.  Favors for the babies were little bags filled with a book, sunglasses, pinwheel headband and a pinwheel clothespin.

Vanessa really loved her party, she was so good with all the people around.  Here's to many more successful parties!
