Who Needs Inspiration?

Last week, I had the chance to host a very Whovian gender-reveal party for some dear friends who are expecting their first little one this summer. Check out a few of the details! I tried to include as many relevant quotes as possible. . . Classic Whovian foods made their appearance, with toasted-coconut encrusted marshmallowsContinue reading “Who Needs Inspiration?”

A Frozen Party

My niece, like most four-year-old girls lately, is deeply obsessed with the film “Frozen”. I know there’s an awful lot of hype surrounding this movie, and most of you feel a little (if not a LOT) fed up with the song “Let it Go”. . . but what four-year-old gets the concept of too-much-media-coverage? NotContinue reading “A Frozen Party”

Dance Details: Candyland Prom

If planning events (albeit somewhat informally) has taught me anything, it is that the devil is in the details, but so is the delight! If you get too caught up in details of an event, you can overlook the fun – but the right details can enhance an event magnificently! This year, our prom themeContinue reading “Dance Details: Candyland Prom”

Free Printable: Candyland Madlibs!

Every year, as part of the annual school dance preparations, we include the making of Mad-libs. . . after including these as part of the table decor a few years ago, they were met with such positive feedback that we’ve included them ever since! Functioning as a fun ice-breaker and a laughter-filled prelude to dancing,Continue reading “Free Printable: Candyland Madlibs!”

DIY Tutorial: Tulle Puff Wands

Every year, a few times a year, I am faced with the question of centerpieces. Cut flowers are pretty and generally okay, I guess . . . but they tend to be expensive, not to mention difficult to transport, oftentimes fragile and, in the long run they’re inconvenient. They cannot be prepped very far in advance,Continue reading “DIY Tutorial: Tulle Puff Wands”

One Winter’s Night: DIY Dinner Dance Decor!

Prom: Life’s a Ball!

The theme for our Prom this year is Masquerade! So, as is the now-annual tradition, I have the privilege of planning/coordinating the aesthetic details, in all their (hopefully creative) glory! After last year’s fishy-centerpieces and Enchantment under the Sea theme, I was pretty excited at the potential for timeless elegance as a decorative choice thisContinue reading “Prom: Life’s a Ball!”

Piece of Cake? Apparently not.

You would think that, once you master the technique, writing on cakes wouldn’t be too terribly difficult. . . but there is significant evidence to the contrary. via I have done my fair share of chuckling at the cake wrecks that are posted online. I think the unintentional ones are my favorite. via But, yesterday,Continue reading “Piece of Cake? Apparently not.”

Rockin’ the Garden

I am a novice gardener . . . you know, the kind that still freaks out when there are spiders in the dirt and has to repeatedly call her Dad to ask if it is finally time to plant the cucumber seeds. I’ve never had a green thumb, or even wanted one, until recently. I thinkContinue reading “Rockin’ the Garden”
