Pink and Purple Birthday Luncheon Birthdays are best spent with good friends and good food! This fun luncheon table is a pink and purple party theme! Making the day memorable for the guest of honor, an old family heirloom quilt was used as a tablecloth and the colors matched perfectly!

Daisy Teal Birthday Party I love Daisies and I love Teal! So this party is a fun one! As you saw with the Berries & Bellinis Party this week, I’m loving cupcake skewers (or cupcakes-on-a-stick, whatever you want to call them). They’re so fun and so cute! They’d make a great centerpiece themselves! Have you made any? Send us your pics! These stand up napkins

A Rustic Vintage Wedding From the moment I attended this wedding, I knew I wanted to share it with all of you.

Berries & Bellinis Favorite is a strong word, I know, but this is (hands down!) my favorite party (that I have designed so far!). It was an absolute blast – from one of my best friends helping me finish last minute touches the night before it was filmed for our local NBC affiliate to first coming up with the idea while brainstorming with the birthday

Cool Cat Dinner Party This cool cat is so happy it is his birthday! I love a black and white table. Adding pops of color with silver and green are a fun way to jazz up the black & white decor.
