Funky Fun 30th!!!!

This cake was made for my friend Delaine's 30th surprise party. Delaine is a super sweet, playful and fun fashionista and I think this cake matches her personality to a tee. :)

Happy 30th Delaine!!!!

Baby Shower cakes

This was the weekend of baby showers! First up, a super chic baby stroller. I love zebra print and would seriously buy a stroller just like this if they ever made one! :)

Cute, huh?!



And if there is anything cuter than a real preggo belly it would have to be a preggo belly cake, miniature style!! I did 10 of these and OMG had so much fun with them!!!!

Are the little boobies killing you!?!?! lol

Airplane themed Baby Shower

Over seven years ago (almost eight) my husband and I met on an airplane. A Delta flight coming back from Aruba. He was sitting next to my Nana and the two of them struck up a conversation. Somehow my mom and I got sucked into their discussions and the rest is history. Thank God for aviation! :)
While I was making this cake I got to thinking how fun an airplane themed anniversary party would be! :) One of these days...
Here are a few ideas floating around out there that I thought were cute and wanted to share!

First up, (top left corner) the inspiration for this cake...the design found here. You can get cupcake toppers, favor tags, invitations etc.
Then, check out this party where most of the middle pics were taken from. Incredibly creative party!!! I love the biscoff cookies as party favors, the lunches packaged in the to go boxes like what you'd get on your flight...and below those the "baggage claim" where she turned cereal boxes into luggage for party favors!!!! So creative!
Far right, a runway makes a perfect table runner for an airplane themed party. Source
And below that, the propeller marshmallow treats! Easy and so clever. Tutorial found here.
Bottom left, lots of white tissue paper pom poms floating from the sky would make great decor to represent clouds. :)
Right above that, boarding passes to hand out while greeting guests. Found here.
And a great activity/craft for a airplane party if kids are to be included would be to make your own airplane out of CHEAP materials like a toilet paper roll!!! Tutorial found here.

Owl Valentines Day party

Today I threw a little Valentines Day party for my little Olivia's playgroup friends. We had 13 little toddlers (most under 2) over here this morning which translates into lots of chaos, cuteness and fun! :) Here are some pics from today's festivities!!

Me and my crazy Olivia!
A perfect craft/party activity for 2 year olds...sticking anything on anything! For this party I got little mailboxes, spruced them up them with owl printables and ribbon and had the babies stick heart stickers on them.

Olivia, hard at work on her mailbox...
and then enjoying her cupcake. :) (notice her little owl shirt...cute Etsy find!!)

All the babies...can you believe we got them ALL in a picture!!! (and no one really crying?!?!)
