    Super Hero Birthday Party

    Last weekend we celebrated Asher turning five with a superhero themed birthday party! In all of the birthday parties I have planned, I have to admit this one was one of my favorites! Over the last year, Asher has grown to love superheros. Not any specific hero or even league but rather just the idea of superheros helping stop “bad guys”. With no favorites on his end and a very limited knowledge of superheros on my end, I opted for a mash up of superhero. To keep with a general superhero theme, I opted for a palette of red, blue, green, and yellow. Using poster board I created a cityscape…

    Farmer’s Market Birthday Party

    Our little baby girl is one year old! How can this possibly be? It feels like this last year has flown by so much faster than Asher’s first year did! Second child probs I suppose.  Since finding out I was having a baby girl, I have been super excited about getting to, perhaps, experience things other than trucks, bugs, dirt, and dinos. So this first birthday party planning was sooo much fun! For Ellery’s theme we decided on a farmer’s market. We wanted something summer-y and fun but a bit unexpected. Plus the gingham pattern is so adorable!  Decorations were minimal and easy. I found ‘picnic’ themed plates, table clothes,…

    2 Year Old Construction Birthday Party

    It feels far to official now…I am the mother of a two year old! Over the weekend we had his official birthday party. I waited until mid-month because I was hoping to have better weather so we could move the party outside and we were very blessed with B-E-A-utiful weather this weekend! The party theme this year was construction based on my son’s love of all forms of construction equipment. I really wanted to make it as eventful for Asher as I could so after he went to sleep Friday night I hung all the decorations and when he woke up Saturday morning he was so excited! He kept pointing…

    Space Themed First Birthday Party- with free downloads

    This last weekend we celebrated Asher’s first birthday with a space themed birthday party! It is so hard to believe our little dude is one year old! It doesn’t feel like nearly 365 days since I entered into the world of motherhood. These last 11+ months have been some of the hardest and most wonderful of my life. But beyond all the mushy mom stuff (ha!) I have been excited to celebrate Little Man’s first birthday! Having never thrown a first birthday, I wasn’t 100% sure what I wanted to do for his “theme” but the hubs is a big fan of space so we decided to that would be…

    Our Easy Gender Reveal Party

    This last week has been quite eventful. On Wednesday we had our 20 week anatomy ultrasound where we found out that our lil babe was healthy and growing like crazy. We also learned that our little one is stubborn as it did not want to show us its business. But after some position changes and prodding by the ultrasound tech we finally got to see what we were looking for. Over the weekend we ventured to visit our families and share the good news. We then decided to put together a small gender reveal party at our place on Saturday night to tell our friends. The night was low-key but…
