A Back to School Dinner for My New Kindergartener

So today was a big day in our house – my baby girl started kindergarten! While I am excited about all that she has in front of her, it was in truth a little bittersweet. Everyone tells you how fast kids grow and I know it’s true, but watching my little girl walk into that big school had me choking back a few tears.

So like any party planning mommy, I swallowed my tears and went home to design a special table for a back to school family dinner. Using a yellow and black color scheme with apples and hydrangeas thrown in, I created a whimsical little table for us to hear all about Ava’s big day. I called my friend Deb of Yummy Delicious Cookies to see if she had any of her awesome apple cookies on hand (she did!) and I used black paper and yellow chalk to create the name cards at each seat. I even remembered how to use paper bags to cover books for the centerpiece – remember that?

Who doesn’t love baseball? The boys of summer are in town again and it’s a great time to throw a baseball themed party. Why not embrace the Vintage trend and apply it to the All American pastime?

Lilly Pulitzer Inspired Birthday with a Little Monkey Business on the Side

Monkey-ing Around with Lilly Pulitzer

My friend Barbara emailed me this weekend with a sweet idea for her daughter’s upcoming 5th Birthday. Chiara (don’t you love that name?) is really into Lilly Pulitzer prints (how posh!) and wants to use the new party decor they are selling in the specialty stationary shops like Swoozies to be the focus of her party. But to make it her own, she wants to incorporate her love of the Oooh Ahh Monkeys into the mix. Her dad is very musical and her mom is super posh and hip so it’s no surprise this kid has come up with a party theme so unique! So here’s what I am thinking. A Posh Lilly Table Setting with Bananas and Straw Hats, A Decorate Your Own Headband station, Musical Chairs with Monkey Music and to top it off, A Banana Split Bar! YUMMY. Happy Birthday Chiara!
