***Dr. Seuss Baby Shower***
I hosted this baby shower for a friend of mine, and it was sooo much fun to decorate for! My son's bedroom is decked out in Dr. Seuss stuff, so I used a lot of his decorations for the shower. And I did make the diaper cake which I think turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself.
The little treat boxes for the guests have chocolates inside. Lucky guests!
My friend's father made the signs. So fun for picture taking!
***Fourth of July Party***
A couple summers ago (before we moved), we hosted a Fourth of July party with everything red, white, and blue. I am all about themes, and this color scheme was so fun to decorate with. Here are some of my favorite pics from that night.
Cupcakes, marshmallow pops, dipped Oreos, Oh my!
And of course, it wouldn't be the 4th without the Flag Cake.
***Thomas the Tank Engine Party***
We celebrated my son's three year birthday at my parent's cottage on the beach. The shadows made it difficult to get good pictures, but hopefully you get the general idea. :)
***Last Day of School Summer Party***
The last day of school I like to throw a little summer party and invite neighborhood kids over. I try to surprise my boys with fun summer toys and a little sugar kick!
***Fiftieth Anniversary Celebration***
Since my parents were married around Christmastime, my siblings and I wanted to pull in the deep red and golds for decorations. We used gold chargers, red runners, real greenery, hurricane vases, fake poinsettia flowers, and candles. We lined the stage with real poinsettias. Here's how it turned out.
