Mother’s Day Brunch

We had our moms and dads over for a small Mother’s Day Brunch today. I kept it really simple and kept most of it easy to assemble like veggies and ranch, fruit, and deviled eggs. The only thing that really took much work was the Caramel Pull Aparts, this recipe is pretty close to the one we make! They’re a family favorite. Drinks were milk and a non alcoholic Mimosa, get the recipe here

It was such a fun morning, it’s not often we have both sets of parents together and even more rare that it’s not with all our siblings so it was really nice just visiting! I hope all you ladies have a wonderful Mother’s Day!

Teacher Appreciation Gift

 I can’t believe it’s May already! I’ve been so focused on my upcoming Mother’s Day brunch (and a home reno that I’ll post after it’s done) that I almost forgot about Teacher Appreciation Day next week! I made up the tags, grabbed some of my favorite bath bombs and poof! A quick, cheap but still nice gift, something I appreciate especially since we have 7 teachers to give gifts to! These would also work as a great gift for Mother’s Day, along with a pack of Lush bathbombs! I’ve included both tags below…FREE to download.

Unique Ballerina Party

I had the amazing opportunity to style a party for Twinkle Twinkle Little Party Magazine earlier this year and I’m SO excited to be able to share it with you now! I decided to go with the theme “Dancing in the Rain” because Brielle is obsessed with everything ballet right now and as a preschooler we definitely experience many storms in this house lately! I was thinking about the quote “Life isn’t about waiting for the storms to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain” a lot and it just seemed perfect!   I kept the color palette soft with baby blues, mint, pink and lots of white accents. Check out below if you want more details and make sure to click HERE to check out the rest of the magazine! It’s full of incredible Spring inspiration!

Oscar the Grouch Party

Everyone tells me it’s her age but seriously, I was not prepared for how much harder 3 is than the “Terrible Twos”! Everything is “I’ll do it myself!”  and then this darling child cycles through the 5 stages of grief every time she’s told no and it.is.intense! She’s also recently decided that she wants to have an adult bedtime. So we have at least an hour every single night returning her to her bed every few minutes and telling her to stay in bed. Finally she crashes from sheer exhaustion but by then it’s to late and she’s already RSVP’d that Brielle the Grouch will be coming for a visit the next day. Since Brielle the Grouch has pretty much taken up permanent residence what better inspiration?!? So since Misery loves company….won’t you join us for a terrible time?!?
