i love a great themed party! i find myself thinking about party ideas on a daily basis and all the great little things you can create to make your child’s day so much more special and one of a kind. sometimes i wish i had more children just so there would be more special occasions to celebrate ;) as much as i do love a great party, i don’t believe that a kid’s party should break the bank. although, i have been known to go a little crazy at times and spend a little more than the budget allowed. but, i think everyone tends to do so for that special 1st birthday! right?
Using 7/8" ribbon fold it as shown. Center a jumbo clip on the ribbon. Sew even stittches up the middle of the jumbo clip (Sally's Clip) using upholstery thread with a needle and knotted ends. *Stitches up the center should be about 1/4" apart and even. If you want the ribbon edges to the back of the bow, stitch on the top of the edges or seam where ribbons touch (as shown).
Celebrating a first birthday during the holidays is EXTRA- SPECIAL! Michelle, of Cakewalk , designed this party for her nephew's first birthday, but the ideas are wonderful for any holiday celebration! The yarn trees, sleighing snowman cupcakes, adorable Santa hat truffles, and the yummy hot cocoa bar, make this precious little birthday boy's party a fabulous Christmas ONEderland! And, I love the combo of red, green, and gray! <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
I love getting in the kitchen, grabbing everything from the pantry and just creating. I know what you’re thinking… and yes, it is a huge mess when I’m done. But sometimes I come up with fun things like these mini space shuttle cakes for my new Space birthday party collection ! Here’s what you’ll need for each shuttle cake:
Happy Wednesday blogettes! You know, as an event planner, I am always amazed at the number of churches and venues that don’t allow real rose petals; which often means no rose petal toss and usually a bummed out bride. Thankfully, these easy to make ribbon wands can serve as the perfect substitute that are guaranteed to not only be a load of fun for wedding guests but for the bride and groom themselves. Try using ribbon or trim in your wedding colours for a more streamlined look or strips of fabric and lace for a more vintage, romantic look. And don’t worry, cute Siamese kitty is not needed for this project… I first took advanatage of this clever craft when as a surprise to one of my couples this past August, I created more than 30 brightly hued ribbon wands for guests to wave once they exited the church.
Today I had my little group meet up with some fellow mommies, and I think it was a success. We had some snacks, played outside (it was quite hot at 83° outside here today), hunted for Easter eggs, and played in the sand box, but I think the most successful part was the frozen Easter egg popsicles that I made for the kids. I just used plain fruit juice, but when frozen in an egg, everything taste better and sweeter. The best part is that they are relatively simple to do, you just need a few items you may already have on hand. To make the popsicle's you will need:
We have a fun little joint feature with Jen at the Hostess Blog coming up next. The adorable and completely talented photographers Kari Herer and Christina Wnek , along with stationery Pam Albert of Papier Gourmet , sent us one of the most lovely showers you’ve ever seen and while Jenn is featuring the full bash over on her blog, we get to give you the SUPER cute DIY project that the trio put together just for us! I love this project and am so excited to see some of you guys pull it together for your own affair. Change up the papers and the color palette and you’ll have a totally different look. Would even be super cute decorating your holiday tables this year!
First of all, bravo if you are now singing the adverb song from School House Rock . Way to kick it old school. Second, sorry if the song gets stuck in your head all day, it just had to be done.

Dinosaur Party Ideas Dinosaurs make a great birthday theme for all ages—but remember to tailor these dinosaur party ideas to suit the age of your child. Toddlers and younger kids up to five years old will probably prefer colourful dinosaurs that are less frightening, whereas older kids will want them to be as realistic as possible.
For years I wondered how to make bows like I've seen in Gymboree stores...you know, the cute curly ones that match all the outfits they have? I adore those corkscrew-style bows, but when you have two girls, it costs a fortune to buy matching hair bows for all of their outfits! Luckily, after much trial and error, I figured out the perfect way to recreate these curly boutique-style bows. Items You'll Need to Make Ribbon Bows: 1 Yard (0.9 m) of polyester ribbon: 1/4" (7 mm) or 3/8" (9 mm) wide 18" (45.7 cm) dowel, 1/4" (6 mm) diameter Two wooden clothespins Embroidery thread aluminum foil oven How to Make Hair Bows:
The lace crowns we made for Grace's princess party continue to receive much wear around here. When the girls put on their leotards or princess gowns for their nightly performances, they now bring crowns and bobby pins to complete their look. The little girls enjoyed helping when the crowns were made and we thought we'd share how we did it so that you and your little princesses can make some crowns, too. I got the original how-to on Jessica's blog, Joyfolie , which you can check out, here .
iambaker.net I have been seeing homemade cake sprinkles all over the web recently, and knew immediately that I wanted to try them out! When I saw what the options were -- using royal icing or making homemade fondant -- I was bummed. That's more work then I was hoping for. So instead I decided to try making them using my trusty glaze icing recipe.
