Superbowl Inspired Baby Shower

Superbowl Inspired Baby Shower partiesandpottytraining.com

Last January I had the honor of co-hosting a football themed baby shower for a sweet friend. She was having her first baby- a boy- and wanted pizza served at her shower. The other co-hosts and I figured that if she wanted pizza, why not do a football theme and serve other foods you would serve at a Superbowl party- with a bit of a twist?

Albuquerque, NM Graduation Dinner Party: Black, White and Gold

Re-Train 77

A modern black, white and gold dinner party we had this summer for a graduation party here in Albuquerque. I love hosting dinner parties, so when my husband suggested throwing a dinner party for some recent graduates of a training program at our church, I jumped at the chance. There is nothing like throwing a sit down dinner on a summer evening being surrounded by friends eating good food.

Dual Birthday Party: Surf Shack and Underwater Adventure

Coral Reef Table

A coral reef underwater adventure and surf shack birthday party for your viewing pleasure today. I am so excited to share this party with you!

My two oldest boys birthdays are two days apart. This year we decided to do a joint birthday party because I was having our youngest son a month before. I wanted to have two distinct parties in one, so […]

Photography By Jasmine Nicole Photography/ Table Styled and Coordinated by Shannon Qualls/ Flowers by Amy Balsers at Amy Does Flowers

Since things are finally slowing down a bit here I can get caught up on posting some seriously fun events. Back in February my girlie friend Jasmine, from Jasmine Nicole Photography, approached me about wanting to do a styled shoot for St. Patrick’s Day. Of course I said yes but it was one of those things that, if it was going to happen, it would have to be fast! So we met to talk about what she was thinking, started a Pinterest board and began contacting vendors and models. All in all, I think concept to execution was something like […]

Ruffled Blog Feature

A few weeks ago a friend of mine, Jasmine from Jasmine Nicole Photography, asked if I would be interested in doing a styled shoot with her (she a crazy good photographer). I was so excited to be asked (and a little nervous about screwing it up). Anyway, she let me know what she was thinking of doing and we met to discuss details. ¬†Hopefully I will have pictures to show you all, but until then, you can check out the St. Patrick’s Day Inspired Shoot over on Ruffled Blog¬†or on Jasmine’s blog.
