This week we had the honor and privilege of partnering with MomMeMatch.com to help put together first birthday party ideas for one of their visitors. Megan challenged MomMeMatch.com to create mommy, daddy & me pajama options for her baby daughter's 1st birthday pancakes and pajamas party theme. After a bit of discussion, we all decided to expand our research to also include “donut time” and “cupcake cuteness” party themes mostly to give Megan more pajama options from which to choose. We let MomMeMatch find the darling pajamas and we stuck with what we do best, finding adorable coordinating pancake, donut and cupcake party supplies. Continue Reading →

A few weeks ago we took a first stab at a pink snowman party. Today we are refining the vision to create an adorable little girl's first birthday celebration.
The inspiration is this Zazzle invitation – Karl, we agree, the cute little pink cap beats the traditional snowman hat, hands down. We did not want the save the date to match the invitation so together we came up with a coordinating look to set the party's tone yet not take away from the invitation itself.……
So we got to thinking, last year at this time we were frantically putting together a pink snowman winter one-derland party theme for a visitor who emailed asking for some inspiration for their daughter's 1st birthday party. This year we challenged ourselves to create a fresh holiday take on a baby boy's 1st birthday party.
Once we found this adorable gnome costume, we were set. Our theme would be Our Little Christmas Gnome Birthday Party. Not only would the photos be #toocute, we loved the idea of combining blue and red with splashes of green to create a playful, festive holiday theme first birthday party. We also found some cute gnome party invitations with a red and white polka dot background – how perfect was that! Continue Reading →
Today we received an email seeking ideas for a snowman theme girl's 1st birthday party. We loved the idea and once we started searching, we had trouble reigning ourselves in. Although we gained inspiration from some of our other Winter Wonderland party packages, this party needed to be different – we wanted it to be pink!
We always like to start with the invitations because to us invitations are like the title of a paper – they set the tone for the entire party. We particularly like the wording of the light blue and pink card inviting guests to join them for Winter Onederland Fun! How adorable is that for a January winter birthday party!
Next we searched for paper party goods. We could not find anything particularly girly so we decided this might be the perfect occasion to create your own party kit. All you need to do is peel and stick an adorable pink snowman label / sticker onto a solid pink paper plate and cup. Best of all most of the stickers can be personalized to wish a happy day to the birthday girl!
Printable Mustache Bash Game
A printable mustache bash game from Funsational that goes perfectly with our Mustache Bash party package and is especially good if you are hosting a boy baby shower. We are stoked. (So sorry – we just double checked and this game is no longer available Turns out Funsational, our favorite printable games merchant, closed her shop this year so this game is no longer available but it might be worth trying to print it directly from the above image. It probably will not come out as clear as we might like but it may just be “good enough”.)
As you well know, we never give up some searched and searched for alternative and have found a handful of other adorable mustache bash games now available on Etsy. Enjoy! Continue Reading →
