Mothers Day Tea Party

This Mother's Day my sister and I hosted a Mother's Day Tea Party for a few of the special Mom's in our lives. This is my 3rd Mother's Day and I can say this has been my favorite! I was able to be with some of the most important woman in my life My Mom, My Mother-In Law, My Grandmother & My Aunt God Mother. My mom loves tea, she drinks it on a daily basis so we based the party around her love for tea and added in a few fancy details.

We laughed, we cried, we made memories !! here to many more favorite Mother's Day's!

A Dino-mite 3rd Birthday Party !

Hi Friends!

It's May once again, another year with my baby boy has been celebrated!

Matthew is 3 and to be honest I can hardly believe it, we had been planning his Dinosaur themed party for a few months now as he has been super into dino's since he started watching Dino Trucks, Dinosaur Train and of course The Good Dinosaur!

If you know us you know we love to shop small, and support small shops! I have always LOVED this community of people and found it so fulfilling to support them!The party was filled with tons of really amazing items I found from small shops from Etsy, Instagram and Facebook. I mean you guys these shop owners are seriously so talented!

The Photo Booth was nothing short of amazing! It was a custom design by IconicaDesign on ETSY 6x4 size and printed on vinyl the color and quality is superb. It really made for a great center piece for the party, it was right out side the party tent, I hung it on a photography backdrop stand but it could have easily been mounted or tapped to the tent or a wall also.

We worked with an amazing company called Revolution46R46 on ETSY  make the Custom Dinosaur Party T-Shirt for Matthew as well as Matching Party Favor T-Shirts! How adorable is the Idea of party favor T-Shirt ? When they arrived I was SO impressed on the quality! We had a Bounce House (Per Matthews Request) and a Slip & Slid and these super soft shirts were perfect for the kids too slip into after playing in the water.


The Kids loved these Dinosaur Feet Cutouts from Cupcake Boutique Designs , I thought it was such a cute little touch leading up to the party tent.

The Pinata is Handmade! I was so Impressed with this handmade work of art, If you are having a party definitely check out LaDeeDaz Dee the owner and maker is so wonderful to work with, and so talented the quality was out of this world Matthew LOVED his Dino she designed for the party.

This was the first time alot of our family and friends came out to the farmhouse and we definitely needed these awesome signs from The Rustic Armadillo they are so bright and sturdy we can even re-use them for a party in the future.
