Happy 4th Birthday to Pizzazzerie!

Happy 4th Birthday to pizzazzerie.com #pizzazzerie

GUESS WHAT!? Pizzazzerie turns 4 this weekend (March 16th to be exact)! I am OH SO THRILLED to celebrate 4 years. It certainly doesn’t feel like it has been 4 years. I launched the site March 16th, 2010 and quit my full-time job July 2010 to go full-time with the site! It has come a LONG way since those early days, but my passion for bringing you entertaining + party food ideas has stayed strong.

Here are a few of the Pizzazzerie accomplishments from the past 4 years…I’m like a proud mama!

So turning 4 meant I had to have a little party – only fitting right? Come along and check it out…

I love the pink, orange, and white! And of course, a touch of glitter + gold! Jumbo sprinkles and matching confetti make for a fabulous cake!

HOORAY! Thank you to every single reader for allowing me to live out my passion as a career! I cannot thank you enough for giving me the chance to create for you on a daily basis. I’m truly honored to have readers and followers who enjoy my projects + recipes! Here’s to starting year 5 off with a bang (or at least a huge piece of vanilla cake)!

Here are a few shots of projects + shoots from the last 4 years that I’m oh so proud of!

4th Birthday Party Details

To recreate the look above, simply make (or order from your favorite bakery) a white on white cake! Add on jumbo sprinkles in your color scheme (mine are Wilton seen here in orange + pink). I used matching orange and pink paper confetti from The Flair Exchange for more touches of color! The fabric was bought from a local store here in Nashville, TN (visit your fabric store for inspiration). The gold glittered “4” cake topper is from michiemay! Cake was served up on mini Kate Spade polka dot plates with white forks from Party City (loves these forks)!

Pretty excited to have a little baby girl to help me celebrate Pizzazzerie’s 5th birthday next year!

Go out & have a FANTASTIC WEEKEND! Check back next week for some super cute ideas + round of new posts!
