Pink Winter One-derland Party Planning, Ideas & Supplies

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.

Our Own Little Christmas Gnome Birthday Party

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 →

DIY Tutu & Gumball Necklace

We are obsessed with this DIY tutu tutorial we found on Birthday Express. We generally turn to Birthday Express as our “go to” site for kids birthday party supplies but never really thought about using those same supplies in fresh new ways. It was one of those “duh” moments. Why not use tulle to make our own tutus, especially with Halloween just around the corner.  And the fact is that although this DIY tutorial uses 2 shades of blue tulle to make a snowflake winter wonderland tutu (which could also be used as a Frozen costume), you could just as easily make a tulle tutu using any of the 14 colors of tulle offered on Birthday Express. Plus, you can easily adjust the length of the tutu to make mom + me matching tutus.  We can already envision clown tutu costumes, flower & butterfly tutu costumes, and even tutus showcasing the colors of your favorite sports teams.
