Hot Pink and Damask

Damask is easily my favorite pattern and I love black and white. The combination together just exudes a classy style. Here are some ideas I put together for a girls room using black and white damask with pops of hot pink.

{ Featured Party } Chutes & Ladders

This adorable Chutes and Ladders party is from Tiffany of From Pedicures to Puddles. What an original theme! It stems from her son Cohen's love of climbing and sliding...how cute is that?! The ever creative Pen & Paper Flowers designed the invite complete with a working spinner!

Chutes and Ladders cut outs. What a fun and creative photo op!

Love the color coordinating IZZE drinks and polka dots lunch boxes.

Each family took home a Chutes and Ladders game. Guests were also given personalized bubbles. ( Great personalized detail! )

I love the bright and cheerful dessert table backdrop!

That cake is too cute! Great job Tiffany! Such great inspiration!

{ Featured Party } Croquet Bridal Shower

How fun and fabulous is this croquet bridal shower I came across on Ruffled?!! I love it for several reasons. The first being that it is not your typical bridal shower luncheon. I'm always impressed when people think outside the box when it comes to planning an event. Second, it is overflowing with vintage chic flair. Lastly, I LOVE croquet! I play a mean game of croquet ( and don't ever let my brother's tell you any different ;) )

" Fin " tastic Inspiration

I've been gathering ideas for a shark themed birthday party for my son's birthday party coming up this winter. Since Connor and Parker's birthdays are not only right in the middle of the holidays ( Connor's is Christmas Day ) but also close together I've decided to do a combined party this year. It truly simplifies things for me and since Parker is still little he won't know the difference :). Connor is crazy about sharks so we have chosen that as our theme. I've settled on a light ocean blue, red, and gray color palette. I've got some great ideas going in my little head and can't wait to get them going. Send any "fin" tastic inspiration you might have or see my way!

I have two family baby showers coming up in September so I have been on the look out for cute gift ideas.

Enjoy and have a great Monday! Tracy

Printable Hershey Kiss Labels

How about giving out some kisses. Hershey kisses!! Posh Pixel's makes the cutest customized printable Hershey kiss labels. They are darling and would work for any kind of event you can think of. You can also order matching invites, food labels, and Hershey bar labels. What a sweet detail to add to you next event.

{ Featured Party } Preppy Turtle

This Preppy Turtle birthday party has to be one of my all time favorite little girl parties. It was done by Kori Clark from Paper and Pigtails for her daughter Charlotte. Kori is a graphic designer by trade and claims she is not an event planner....um I have to disagree. This party turned out gorgeous and the details are divine! The pink and green color palette is perfect and I can't get over how cute the fondant turtles from Two Sugar Babies are! I love the blume box centerpieces with the pinwheels. Kori designed the turtle graphics and they are available for purchase in the Paper and Pigtails shop. You can see more pictures and detailed info here. Amazing job Kori!

How about those pink chairs!...Love them

Each guest got a lunch box complete with a sandwich, chips, and green apple.

{ Featured Party } Train Themed Sweet Station

This train themed sweet station is just too cute! It's know wonder why either, it is from the brilliant ladies from Sweets Indeed. Their custom dessert and candy stations are spectacular. No detail is left unturned, and I love that ! Their recent train inspired table is no exception. The nostalgic train paper, twine strung flag bunting, "box car" food displays....I love it! The color palette is also refreshing don't you think?. Check out their blog here for more from these "sweet" geniuses.
