Super Hero Invitations

I finally completed my son's invitations for his super hero party. I think they turned out pretty great! They say the invitation is the first impression. I want to leave a good one. The outside is embellished with wooden comic words purchased from Joann Fabrics. They were the perfect added touch. Check them out below.

I'm Back

It has been 3 months since I last blogged. I have missed the blog world a lot and it feels good to be back. So many things have taken me away from my love of all things Party. Since nothing, besides my family makes me more happier, I had to come back.

This is the time of the year that gives me the best feeling. Not just because of the Holiday's but because I am knee deep in planning my son's 5th birthday party. See previous parties here, here and here. He is so excited which makes me excited and I want to make this day even more special.

My theme this year is Super Heroes. Bailey is in love (Below Bailey as Spider man for Halloween). I don't know where it came from since he is not allowed to watch them as of yet.

I created the invitation for Bailey's birthday. Of course in none other than Microsoft Word. I placed it on this great black glitter paper found at Micheal's. This is the insert it will be placed in the half moon enclosure from Paper Source and then in the the yellow envelope also from Paper Source pictured below. Once I receive everything I will show you the finished product.

I have also been searching for inspiration for cakes. Of course it has to be a tiered cake and something pretty special. Check out what I found below.


Love these cupcakes from Geek Cake. This is definitely inspiration that will be used.

If I feel too excited and have an endless budget(Ha Ha) Maybe I'll try this cake.

Cake Creator unknown

I can't leave without showing this fabulous Super Hero Table Scape by Jamee Bryant of Setting the Mood. I only hope that my party looks this fabulous

It's My Party Recap

Saturday, I celebrated my 34th birthday. I can tell you I partied like I was turning 21. Glad I'm past that stage in my life :-). We started off the celebration with a classy cocktail party at my house and then we headed to downtown Baltimore to the Power Plant. (No pictures of that thank God!)

If you are a reader of my blog, you know that I am not a cook at all. So the food was courtesy of some of my favorite take out places.

I like the idea of a tasting party and I think I will have a bigger one soon. Pier 1 has the cutest tasting collection. I got the shot glasses from there. They also came with small spoons.

The spoons for the Mexican Gumbo were purchased at World Market for .99 a piece

As part of the gifts to my friends, I decided to write a personal letter. I have to admit I cried all night long writing these letters. Each one of my friends mean so much to me. It was a great honor to have them celebrate my birthday with me.

For the favors, I found the perfect Turquoise boxes and bags at Home Goods. Inside was a notepad to write notes to their friends and family and a Picture Holder. I took a picture with each friend which will be sent in my thank you cards.
