Yo Gabba Gabba Party Feature!

How awesome is this party?!? Rebecca from Fresh Chick Design Studio sent over these fabulous party pics and asked if I might share her party with my lovely PBD readers... of course, how could I not!?!

Rebecca's Inspiration... "Well, my inspiration for the party was Yo Gabba Gabba...I am not a fan of character parties but my 2 yr old is obsessed with that show so I wanted to do something that was familiar to him. I tried to play down the theme and went off the color scheme to create the decor. I made the invites, the candy jar labels, favor bags, a few tissue poms, birthday banner and marshmallow pops. The custom fondant cupcake toppers came from Two Sugar Babies on Etsy...she is amazing!"

This party really shows that character themed parties can be amazing... crazy great job Rebecca, really love everything you did!

Hope you all are having the most fabulous weekend!

Cocktail Tags: Charli-licious Lemonade

Wanted to give you all a sneak peek of Charlotte's party decor!

I love signature cocktail tags and wanted to combine the fact that she is turning 2 and her name! So I ended up going with Charli-licious Lemonade and used the number two for the main part of the tag!

These are available in the shop!

What do you all think?!?

Please feel free to send party box suggestions our way! After all, this is a dream and being part of all these fabulous events is just priceless!

Tulle Pom Poms...

 tulle pom poms

Those of you who follow this blog know how much planning I put into my daughter's birthday parties! Well... I also like to do most things myself- which in the end, never works out!!! Between working full time, launching Party Box Design, filling orders, and having a soon to be two year old- there just never seems to be enough hours in the day.

THANKFULLY I have a very creative family! Soooo THESE crazy cute pom poms were created by my fabulous Mom!

I love the idea of the tissue poms that are being featured in parties everywhere and thought... hmmmm how could I use this idea but make it fresh and new????

Wellll...I LOVE TULLE! Sooooo I decided to combine this idea with the new fabric and placed my Mom as CEO of this project! UMMMMMMM Mom... they are perfect and I can't wait to see them in person! THANKS!

Liam's Baseball Party & a Few Throw Backs!

How great is this baseball party, a classic theme with a classic feel, totally "baseball" and all the yummyness it brings?!?

Liam's Mommy throws fabulous parties! This is the third time I was able to work with her, and she is one talented lady! The first party was for her daughters Parisian Chic Candy Shop Birthday, which was super crazy cute! Then a movie themed party for her 4 year old son!

Amy is a mommy of 4, yes FOUR! So you can imagine just how busy she must be, and still she finds time to throw each child an amazing party! Like I said, one talented lady!

Thanks Amy for sharing your recent party. I love seeing the "final" theme fully come together, so seeing previous customers pics is such a joy!

Have a fabulous day everyone!

Happy Anniversary {A Love Story}

Dear Bradley,

When I think back over the past seven years, there are so many memories. When I flip through old photo albums I smile, thinking of our wonderful trips, our love, and where life has taken us.

Life flashes before your eyes, but so does love. From the moment I met you, our first kiss(in your old pick up truck), to the birth of our child- so much love. Different kinds of love, but so much. Young love, filled with firsts to love that begins to mature. A love that remains through the good and the bad. Stretch marks, a few extra pounds, child birth, and heart ache. A healing love, a love that you know will remain regardless of what life may bring.

The love I have for you has carried me through our life, your love has given me support, strength, laughter, a child and kindness. Love is not perfect, but it's a feeling that is like no other.

I am looking forward to growing old with you, to drinking fresh lemonade out of mason jars on our sprawling front porch. Smiling as we think of our grown children following their dreams, while we fulfill our own!

Love you my sweets! Pin It

Twilight & FREE Coordinating Confetti...

Fighting sleep deprivation and doing everything I could to keep my eyes open, I FINALLY finished Twilight. Seriously the fastest read ever, 498 pages have never flown by so quickly. A crazy fabulous book!

I will start New Moon next week, fortunately I have all the books but the very last one, so no rushed trips to the book store- YET!

P.S. Because I am so happy it's Saturday, PBD customers will get a free set of coordinating confetti with every party decor order purchased this weekend!


Have a great weekend everyone and don't forget about our current give away!

Mother's Day

This is my second official Mother's Day Weekend... I did kinda count my first when I was preggers- but it's not the same! No one called me Mommy yet!

In my opinion Mother's Day should be an ENTIRE week! Giving birth alone should grant you that, right?!? Ummm how about being preggos for like an eternity... maybe we should get two weeks! Yes, two weeks!

Actually though, Mother's Day is celebrated each and every minute I get to be with my baby girl. Before I know it she will be off to college following her own dreams, instead of being part of mine.

Charli will be 2 next month and already a lil sassafras! This is a trying age, but beyond wonderful. She is talking so much, and becoming her own lil independent person.

Thanks for letting me be a Mommy my sweet Charli P!
Happy Mother's Day everyone!
