Sophie’s Owl Party

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

Little Sophie is one year old! Happy Birthday Sweetie! It’s been a wonderful year and we are so happy to have you in our lives.

We had a little party for her. Here are some of the party details!


Cake and cupcakes from Bakery Gingham.

Macarons from Pistacia Vera. Flavors: Chocolate, Honey Vanilla Bean, Black Raspberry and Strawberry Amaretto.

Long pink biscuits are Strawberry Pocky.

Sophie’s Party Dress from Target last year. Hair clip from Gymboree. Rainbow tissue poms with tissue paper from 2011 Target Valentine’s Day line.

Balloons and Honeycomb Tissue Daisies from Bake It Pretty.

Owl fabric is Urban Zoologie Pink Owls by Ann Kelle for Robert Kaufman. I found it on ebay because it has been out awhile.

Paper on flower vases is from My Little Shoebox.

I made the owls following this guide. The invitations, highchair border and ‘tape the beak on the owl game’ were my designs.

Mario Party 3!

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

For Desi’s 3rd Birthday, we did a Mario Party. (Special note: It is also Mario’s 25th Anniversary this month!). We had Mario cake I made from the Wilton Super Mario Bros. Cake Pan with icing from Bakery Gingham, Mario mushroom cupcakes (Bigs and Tinys), Star confetti, Items garland, Pipe decor (pipes from Goodale Hardware Pro), Item box gift, Mario and Luigi Mustaches, Coloring activity pages, Duplo set up, Mario Fruitsnacks for a favor. The invitation was talked about here. We went to the Mario wall at CCAD and the Savage Gardens exhibit at the Franklin Park Conservatory the day before his birthday for more Mario fun.

Sophie slept through the entire party!
