Sloan & Cali turn 2! {Hello Kitty & Minnie Mouse themed Sweet Table}

Sloan and Cali, Cali & Sloan, whenever these two get together Cuteness Reigns and Badness gets taken to the next level...From doing time in the womb till now, they truly are besties to the core. 
The Hello Kitty/ Minnie Mouse theme fusion was an epiphany I had while debating the topic with my sister Natalie. She and I clearly have uncompromising tendencies that would make for disaster in most situations but some how we manage to whip up some bad ass end products/ success stories.  Cheers Nat, here's to achieving our main goal: A Low Key, Stress Free, FUN party for the girls.

Woodland Baby Boy Shower

Baby Samson is the cutest lil' guy in the West! This woodland theme incorporates his nursery colours and theme too.
I wanted to create some pieces his mom could use to decorate his room with and that transported well since the surprise party was set up on the fly at a last minute location.
Check out the spread!

Attie's 4th Raceway Picnic Birthday Party!

OMG how did time fly by so fast??? My tiny guy is getting bigger and smarter and cooler each day!
THIS raceway party was all his brain child! He just loves to have fun with friends and fam so a picnic on a beautiful spring day was PERFECT!

Attie had THE funnest marine themed party at West Edmonton Mall's Sea Life Caverns with three of his besties. Check out the Loot Bag Buffet we did for all the super stoked toddler guests!

My bestie had a baby boy so this event was a project near and dear to the heart!
I found owl themed items everywhere, it must be a huge trend still.

How to organize: - a Dessert Buffet Potluck

My little family joined my large extended family for a lovely Easter gathering in Edmonton last week. It occurred to me, as I was designated dessert table setter upper, that it was a brilliant idea to assign some people the job of bringing a delicious dessert to share and set up a kind of Dessert Buffet. So my little sister Natalie - our gracious hostess, deserves credit for this weeks post idea - Dessert Buffet Potluck. For large gatherings where guests are asked to contribute a food item of some sort, hostess' can arrange a delicious, impromptu Sweet Buffet and achieve maximum guest happiness :) with very little effort.

Easter Basket Stuffers - Part I

Alright it's plain to see that I will use any occasion to shop. Easter is no exception. I love the big grocery shopping trip (a few days in advance, usually really early in the morning to avoid the ugly rush), the Easter Basket Stuffing Hunt. Without losing sight of the true Reason for the Season of course, I head for the shops I know will have what a girl needs to make for the most special Easter Moments. Even before I had a child of my own filling Easter Baskets for loved ones was my favorite. The best shops I have sourced out so far for your build - a basket needs are:

1.) Chapters/ Indigo
2.) Pier One Imports
3.) Old Navy

Chapters/ Indigo has a great selection of adorable plush animals, felt dye cut baskets, stickers, mini books and candies galore; gourmet marshmallows, sour candies, bunny jube jubes, you name it. Oh and Godiva Chocolates has a kick butt Easter display at Chapters as well. (Let's face it CHOCOLATE is one reason for the season right? So it may as well be good quality chocolate)
