Ties Baby Shower

As I have said in the past, a lot of people are having babies...but I guess when you know someone having a baby, you notice it more :)  Baby showers are always a hot topic and you want to get them just right!  One thing I try to keep in mind when throwing a baby shower, is that it doesn't look like it's for a baby.  This is an adult party, so make it look mature and put together.  Just because you are throwing a shower doesn't mean you go to the local party store and buy all the baby boy products.  When I throw parties, I think of decorating my house.  Would this look good in my house?  Of course you may have little things here and there that aren't "home decor" just to pull in the theme, but do it tactfully.  This photo shoot is all about the sign in table. 

Use your IKEA plants anytime you can.  There are several different pots to change out (I have three different kinds) and they are very inexpensive! 

 When people arrive, have them instantly engaged and excited to be there with a diaper raffle!  

Display a photo of the Mom-to-Be.  I mean, this is her party!   

 Have the guests write their address on an envelope that you will send their "thank you" note in.  It also helps you remember who attended your shower and make sure you send everyone a note of appreciation. I love these coordinating "thank you" notes included in this party package!  

Water bottle can never go wrong!

Chanel Party

I love chic.  I love girly.  I love classy.  My favorite color combo lately is gold and black.  You can only imagine my excitement when my friends at Magical Printables asked me to put together a Chanel party.  My mind was racing of what I could do.  The possibilities were endless.  Since I have a track mind lately on makeup, I thought... A MAKEUP PARTY!!  It doesn't get any girlier than that!!! 

This theme can also be used for a bridal shower, baby shower, bachelorette party, birthday party...really anything a bunch of woman get together for!!

St. Patty's Day

I feel like St. Patrick's Day is not a holiday I have ever really thought of, let alone celebrated, besides wearing green and hoping I wouldn't get pinched at school!!  Now that I'm a mom and I love changing things up around the house, I find it a reason to celebrate and decorate!!

The other day, I grabbed some clover garland at Target for $3 and green flowers at Dollar Tree.  I stuck them in a vase I made (thanks Pinterest) and added a printable from last year!

I have been working a lot with my friend over at Mimi's Dollhouse and noticed she had some FREE St. Patrick's printables!  I printed them out and added them to the mix.  You can use these for just decorations or parties of all kinds!!
