Come One! Come All! 1st Birthday


Last month was my sweet little baby girl's first birthday, I just can't believe how fast time goes by! 
I wanted to do something fun, but not over the top... now with 3 birthdays every year I figure we may start having to do them a little more 'budget friendly' if you know what I mean :)
I love the idea of this being the first celebration of many for her so I thought the phrase "Come One, Come All" was perfect, and who doesn't love the circus right!?!
Here is the cute little birthday girl in here Ringmaster outfit
Sorry for the fuzzy pics, my camera wouldn't focus!
Now that the camera started working properly, so frustrating, here is more pics...
The party was smaller with just family, so I set up a smaller table for all the little cousins.

At each place setting there was a circus party hat and cute little circus tent favor box with a gumball animal inside. 
I just adored these circus tent boxes, they fit the gumballs perfect!
We had clowns, elephants, lions, monkeys, and tiger gumball buddies from the Peppermint Place.
We also had cute animal circus animal cutouts for the table centerpieces.
I set up a small circus tent dessert bar. We kept the treats light and simple for this party.
Adorable custom circus sign from Wants and Wishes and I made the circus tent from plastic table clothes from a local party store.
For the birthday cake I decided to do keep with the theme and do 3 to resemble the 3 rings at the circus.
The elephant topped off the design holding a number 1 flag
but my favorite was this little guy...
On one side of the cake we had a sweet side of circus treats...
First no circus would be complete without cotton candy!

Animal Cracker Cookies, Marshmallow Peanuts, and sweet Kettle Corn popcorn.
On the other side we had matching treats that were not as sugary...
There was buttered popcorn, salty peanuts, and animal crackers.
We had to incorporate clowns into this circus themed dessert table as well...
Clown Nose Suckers!
also a custom printable from Wants and Wishes
and one more shot of the cake just because I loved it!
All the party hats, cotton candy cones, popcorn boxes, and circus tent favor boxes were from Oriental Trading.
 
I made the birthday girl's top hat and tutu, the onesie was from Cupcakes Cottage
 My cute little clowns!
She LOVED her smash cake :)
I hope you enjoyed our little circus celebration and can't wait for more to come!

Hippie Valentines Party

This year for Valentines I wanted to do something different than the usual parties you see all over. I wanted it also be vibrant, full of energy, and something that both boys and girls would be into....
plus the 60's had been on my mind for awhile so I thought that this would be perfect! 
Here is a peak into out Hippie Valentines Party!

First when the guests arrived we had a little table set up for them to get all GROOVY!
The table was set with a beaded curtain backdrop and a tie dye table cloth.
There was a variety of headbands, beaded 'Peace' sign necklaces, and Beatles glasses with colored lenses to wear.
For activities the kids make Tie Dye Hearts.
They are simple to do and don't use very many materials. Hop on over to Mom to 2 Posh for the complete dyi instructions...
They turned out so cute and each one different...

 I also picked up some Valentine cards from our local grocery store that came with mini tattoos,
they were too perfect!
 Peace & Love 
 After the activities we all got to Hang Loose and enjoy some refreshments while jammed out to some music from the era.
I just loved how colorful and festive the dessert table was!
I had the pleasure of working with Mimi's Dollhouse on Esty to design the custom printables for this party, I just love how they turned out!
There were so many yummy treats...
I placed Tie Dye square lollipops on top of a rainbow tambourine.
Filled a lave lamp with colored chocolate candies.
Vintage Fondue Pot from Wee Lambie Vintage.
One of my favorite details from the party was the vinyl record cupcake tower I made!
I just have to show you a pic without all the cupcakes so you can fully see, it just makes me smile!
I also could not get over how perfect, and delicious, these cookies were from Sweet C's Bake Shop also on etsy.
The Tie Dye cupcakes were so fun to make, just love the variety of colors. Each one turned out so different and unique.
  
  
The fondue was definitely the biggest hit of the party, also the messiest :)
 
The large flower and party cutouts I got from Shindigz set the mood perfectly!
 I hope you Dug our little party and gives you some inspiration to throw your own Out of Sight celebration! From our family to yours, here's wishing you all a 'Hippie Valentines Day!'
