3) Dress up your burgers! Use cute mini flags to make your burgers, hot dogs and appetizers more festive! You can find these cute flags at any local party supply store around this time of the year. Or you can get the kids to draw you some and just use a toothpick to attach them. Cute and yummy!

Garden Party – Magazine Shoot

Spring is here and I would like to share with you the mini photo shoot I styled for “Yum Food and Fun for Kids” Magazine Spring Issue 2014. It is a super fun Garden Shoot “Plant a seed and let it grow” theme with a focus on healthy snacks.

Healthy snacks – veggie wraps, veggie chips, veggies + ranch and hummus
Drinks – organic carrot and green juice
Favors – “Plant a seed” kit (Veggie Tag free download provided by Twinkle Twinkle Little Party)

Each kid received a “veggie” cake pop provided by Eat the Dishes.

Happy New Year!

It’s hard to believe this is the last weekend of the year of 2013. Where did the time go?

I am here again to share with you my NYE project I did exclusively for Yum Food and Fun for Kids Magazine. Who doesn’t love a yummy breakfast?

The simple breakfast table consisted of pancakes with marshmallow butter sauce (recipe courtesy of Oh, Bite it!), Rice Krispie Balls by Eat the Dishes, a delicious pound cake, muffins, powdered sugar donuts, waffles and milk.

I set up a small table for a small family just like mine. I also designed NYE inspired hats, tags for gable boxes and noise makers. Each kid could also enjoy a clock marking midnight cake pop designed by Eat the Dishes.

The NYE printables and hat template are all available for free download!

I hope you enjoy the images!

Merry Christmas!

Nothing like updating the blog on Christmas Eve, right?

I apologize for the lack of posts. So many things I would like to share with each one of you!

Since it’s Christmas Eve today, I will start by sharing our Annual Gingerbread House Decorating Party, which is a project I absolutely love planning and executing. The kids have SO much fun and I get to showcase my lovely vendors’ work. This year, Renee Nicole Photography captured all the details and I am so thankful she was available and willing to participate!

Two great things I would like to share about this Holiday Party:

1) It was featured in Tattle Magazine. How exciting is that? It was nice to see my work in print!
