Last Saturday I had the pleasure of helping host a Vintage Airplane Baby Shower for my beautiful niece Alix. I am so excited for her and it was so much fun to put this shower together for her and her sweet baby boy!
This Chinese Chicken Salad is always a BIG hit at any event I bring it to. It’s the perfect salad for a Ladies Lunch, Bridal Shower or Baby Shower. In fact, the first time I made this for a baby shower, me and two of the others hosting the shower each brought 2 salads to make a little salad buffet and this was the first salad to be gone because people LOVED IT!
Mother’s Day is just one month away and I’m already making plans for my annual Mother’s Day Brunch that I host for my wonderful mother each year. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ve seen some of the photos that are inspiring my decor this year. I’ll be sharing lots more in the coming weeks, so check in! But first, April 24 – 30, 2016 is National Infertility Awareness Week and it is something I try to highlight to each year. #NIAW
I think it’s safe to say that Inside Out was a favorite movie for people of all ages last year. It’s lighthearted and kid centered enough to keep my daughter enthralled, but had layers of deeper meaning that for the big kids/adults. It’s the perfect movie to turn into a birthday party if you ask me!
One of our favorite movies last year was HOME by Dreamworks. OH, Tip (Gratuity), Lucy, Kyle, Captain Smeck, Pig the cat – the whole lot are hilarious! I love that the movies are geared for kids, but have enough wit and humor that adults enjoy them too. As I mentioned in my Cinderella post, my daughters birthday isn’t for 6 months, but this is one of the ideas we’re brainstorming for her party and I thought I’d share the ideas I have in case you’re looking to host one yourself. So, again, while I don’t have finished party photos – hopefully they’ll give you a good jumping off point!
2015 was a great movie year in my opinion! We especially loved the new Cinderella movie. My daughters birthday isn’t for 6 months, but we’re already brainstorming on different themes. The new Cinderella movie is one that she really loves, and while it is similar to her Disney Princess party from last year, I have come up with a few ideas I wanted to share in case you are planning a Cinderella birthday party.
Entertaining for the holidays is one of my favorite things (along with rain drops on roses and red woolen mittens)! Being sponsored by Collective Bias, Inc. and it’s advertiser sweetens the whole thing considerably! #ShareTheJoyOfPie #CollectiveBias
A holiday pie buffet will give your guests a warm welcome to your home and invoke memories of family gatherings of the past. Best of all, pie can be served warm out of the oven, at room temperature or even cold – so no matter what else is going on that day, it’s the perfect dessert to serve at your holiday gathering. With the hurried pace of the holidays, using Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pie and Reddi-wip® Whipped Topping is the way to share the joy of pie without spending all day in the kitchen.
As soon as I found out I was expecting a boy, I knew that his 1st birthday party would be a Baseball birthday party. My husband played baseball growing up (and even into college) and going to MLB games is one of our favorite vacation activities. If you’re planning one, hopefully these baseball birthday party ideas will come in handy! Be sure to check out the Baseball cake tutorial I posted as well!
