Office Baby Shower-Zoo Crew

We are having another Office Baby Shower. I really love to do these because I like to show that office parties can be fabulous too! I have previously done 2 office parties here and here and I recently did the office Christmas Party(unfortunately no pics). 

A co-worker that I have known for the pass seven years got married last year and is now expecting her first child. I couldn't think of a more deserving person to throw a shower for. This one is going to be a surprise because she would never let us do it any other way. 

So I have secretly found her registry to get some ideas of her style and what would be perfect for a shower. Below is her babies bedding-Zoo Crew by Just Born. I think that this is the most perfect simple theme and the colors are to die for.  Check it out below.

I love the minimalistic modern zoo theme. It really speaks to her personality as well. She is not a fussy person and pretty much stays to herself.
So of course I had to create an inspiration board as I did for the two previous showers. I love the thought of using Chevron in Navy blue and incorporating sparkly animals. I'm going to try to do this myself. Wish me luck!

Party Decor-Life of Tees
Chevron Elephant-Luna and Bean
Glitter Hippo and Giraffe-Wish Daisy
Burp Clothes-Day Dream Believers

Personalized Christmas Gifts

I am totally looking forward to Christmas this year. I have found some great gifts for some close friends that gives that personal touch. 

I just love the bangle bracelets from Frosted Willow. They are to die for! The fact that she can do them in 14 K gold filled and Sterling silver is even better. Check out some of her designs. I love the one for the bride to be or even for an anniversary.

I found this personalized mini I pad case at Zazzle. How fun is this!

Finally, you can't beat this I phone case from Shutterfly

Getting Ready for a Monster Bash

 My son has already placed in his request for a Glow in the Dark Miniature Golf Party. Not really the party that I was looking forward to doing, but he always likes to give me a challenge. So, I'm on the search for the most unique and fun ideas I can find. 

I will be doing glow in the dark face painting. I think that this will be a great touch to have the kids face painted like monsters in glow in the dark paint. 

I'm also getting several glow in the dark favors. Oriental trading has several great glow in the dark monster options. Here are some below.

Also one of my favorite party inspiration, Jamee Bryant of Setting the Mood always seems to do a great party right at the time that I need it. Check out her latest monster party below. Go see the full party here

Now it's time to complete one of my favorite parts...The Invitation!!!!!

Pink and Green Graduation Party

I did a couple of parties this summer. It was pretty hectic for a while, but I pulled it through in between the several trips that I went on. It has been a great summer and I look forward to next year. is the first party. It was a college graduation cookout. The guest of honor is in the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, so what better colors to use than pink and green.

Rock Climbing Party Recap

Bailey's 6th Birthday Party went fantastic! He had a blast. I just received the pictures from Kory of BChase Photography and I had a hard time choosing which ones to show. So I narrowed it down to a small
Bailey requested a rock climbing Party. So I went on a hunt for the perfect location. Earth Treks in Columbia MD was perfect. You can see this by the smile on Bailey's face.

Let's start with the snack table. I stuck with the colors of grey, turquoise, yellow and black.  My glorious friend Heather made the climb high and number 6 cookies for me. I couldn't find any paper in the stores that I liked so I got this great idea to order sample wall paper. I used it to line the cookie platters and for the water bottles. The paper came from Walnut Wallpaper co. It was about 3 dollars and they gave me several pieces. 
I also ordered rope from Web Rigging Supply Store and used it to accent the table, the cotton candy baskets and the table signs. Everyone thought it was such a nice touch. 

The containers to hold the balloons were the same containers that I used last year at Bailey's super hero party. I just re-wrapped them and added rope and a carabiner clip purchased at Home Depot. The big yellow balloons were ordered from the Balloon Supply Store
The Rocks were purchased at Home Goods for 3.99. I used a Sharpie paint pen to write each kids name in yellow and Rock on in grey. The kids were so excited to get their personalized rock.

The Popcorn boxes were ordered from Oriental Trading. I just placed a sticker label that I made from the same graphic used on my son's invitation. I got the popcorn and cotton candy from Atlanta Concessions and Catering. They make sure that they deliver it on the exact date you want it so that it can be fresh and delicious. They also commit themselves to being Peanut Free. You can also choose the colors to match your party. For the cotton candy, I chose grey and yellow and for the Popcorn-Turquoise. I just added my own label and Voila!
For additional activities, I had the kids paint their own water bottle bags. The bags are from Oriental Trading and the Bottles are from Discount Mugs. The bottles had the same rock climbing clip art etched on. 

  Bailey's Cake was perfection. We got it from our go to place-Cakes Plus in Laurel MD
 My husband decided to challenge me in a race. Needless to say I will never let him live it down that....

 I WON!!!!!

 Bailey, my husband and I all wore personalized shirts with Rock On on the front and Bailey's 6th Birthday on the back. The shirts were ordered from spread shirt.

 Lastly, the gift bags were a big hit. I ordered them from Zazzle. They had everything related to rocks. Pop Rocks, Rock Candy, Airheads, compass, flash lights, rock star stickers and so on...
