Vacation Dreaming

It's that time of the year.  The school year is winding down to an end.  Every one's talking about their vacations and get-aways.  Unfortunately my husband and I don't have anything planned.  I am hoping to at least have a long weekend away out of state.  I'm at the point where I find myself daydreaming about an all inclusive trip or a cruise to an island.  Crossing my fingers that it will happen at least before the end of the year.  At least I can plan outfits in my head for when that time comes.

How about you? Are you going on holiday this summer?  Any trips to a far far away place?

Birthday Wishes And DIY Dreams

For the past few years I have been assisting my good friend Joyce with her super birthday parties for her little one.  I wrote about last year's party on this post.  This year her baby girl turned three and there was no way her shindig would be anything less than fabulous.  Seems like my friend has been stepping up her DIY game, and of course I was happy enough to assist her with her party inspiration.   

Purchased backdrop and printed letters on banners and doily name.

Pinwheel banner, tissue paper pom poms, and lace ball lanterns.

Joyce's husband made the PVC pipe photo booth backdrop especially
for the big day.  How cute is that?
Of course a photo booth isn't complete without props from
Get Creative Juice.

Even though the dessert table had to be minimized because of
weather issues, as you can see it was huge in presentation.

This was one of my contributions to the super chic party, a DIY
initial frame made from cardboard.  More info to come!

Yummy cupcakes on embellished cupcake stands.

Rice Krispie pops with itty bitty flags.

Delicious homemade chocolate pops.

An activity table was available for a house full of children under the
age of eight.

Holy moly tissue paper piñata!  Complete with a pull down wall.
No blindfolds and baseball bat required!

As you all can see, every decoration for the party were all handmade.  With careful pinning, time management (we were already talking about it in January), and budgeting my dear friend was able to pull off another wonderful party for her daughter that the children and adults enjoyed.  Of course the birthday girl was all smiles that day!

Week(s) In Pictures 55.0

It's been a while since I've posted.  Honestly, I just needed a little break.  It's going to be a little busy over here on this corner of the world for me for a while, so bare with me.  Thanks for stopping by!

1  Found some mustache gift wrapper.  What else won't they put mustaches on??!  No, I didn't purchase it since I couldn't justify spending money on mustache paper.

2  Another blogger meet-up with some favorite ladies at the Chowder Pot!

3 Drove down to Jersey for a splendid birthday for a three year old.

4 & 5  DIY frame for the birthday party.  More photos to come.

6  Meeting up with Lydia and Megan is always eventful, in addition to the photo shoot.

7 & 8 Happy got her haircut and I wanted to make sure she got her #OOTD's in!

9  This is hands down my favorite year round Italian pastry.  Do you know what it's called?

Hope you all had a wonderful week!
