Parties


Robot Baby Shower (Because I sort of failed to post these in 2010…)

Robot Dessert Table

This was the 3rd dessert table/full on party I ever did (with the help of my girl Ofelia and a ton of other women from church).  I had planned on posting these a year and a half ago but never got around to it.  Lisa (the mom-of-honor) wanted robots so we gave her robots.  We did a gray and yellow color scheme that was similar to what they were doing for the nursery.   For the food we served a build your own crepe bar as well as croissants, deli meats, bacon (because every party needs bacon- can I get […]

Monogamy (Monopoly) Bridal Shower

This is perhaps one of the most unconventional bridal showers I have ever done. A darling friend of mine (Kristen) was getting married and I knew I wanted to throw her shower with another friend (hi Stephie!).  So we sat down and brainstormed a ton of ideas about what we wanted to do for her shower. Kristen loves books and reading.  In fact, she loves them so much, that her wedding centerpieces were books and seating cards were bookmarks (so cute!)  Our original plan for the shower was to do a total library theme with books and pages from books […]

Advent Christmas Decor

Christmas Tree

Back in November one of the Pastor’s at my church (Mars Hill Church in Albuquerque) approached me about heading up the Advent decor.  I was honored, and humbled, and a little nervous too.  I wasn’t sure if I would be able to do it because I was having surgery and didn’t know how it would go.  Greg and I prayed, and we felt like God said WE should do it.  So we said yes, with the understanding that I might be limited in what I could do.  God graciously provided help in the form of interns (you guys are bomb!)

Top Gun Birthday Party

I’m not super proud of how late I am in posting this…but I still think it was a fun party!  Last *ahem* February, I asked some of my friends if anyone was interested in me helping them throw a party for their little one.  At the time I was wanting to build up my portfolio so I could start a party planning business, but that has since fallen to the way-side (fear not! I still plan on doing parties, and my new business venture is in that realm…muhahah…I just don’t want to HAVE TO do it). Well, one of my […]

Baby on Board Baby Shower (Nautical Theme)

DSC_7013

This is a shower I did in October for a friend who had a beautiful baby boy named Jude.  She mentioned wanting to do a nautical theme in his room so I figured if we made that the theme, she could use some of the props for his room afterward! I thought it would be really fun to have a yarn wreath with a twist- wrapped to look like a life preserver.  This is what came out of it. It was super easy to make.  Just get a foam wreath from Hobby Lobby or Michaels, and wrap yarn around it. […]
