Jolly & Happy
A very merry unbirthday to you… to you!!
My girls all have summer birthdays. I had promised them a party but the summer kept us so busy that a party never happened. After feeling really guilty, I came up with a great idea! I’d throw an unbirthday party so it wouldn’t feel as weird being so late. I had all of their friends come with character inspired fashions (not a literal costume, just clothes that are reminiscent of a particular character),
A good friend of mine was asked to decorate a wedding reception. She asked me to help out and this is what we came up with! I think it turned out great!!
Planning for around 200, we used five rows of four long tables. Each table had a silver runner, floral centerpiece, tea lights and faux diamond confetti. The two end walls had a curtain of lights behind gossamer curtains.

And a new baby most certainly finds a way to steal your heart! This baby shower was for a young lady who I’ve known since she was a girl. She was having her first baby and the nursery was going to be vintage Winnie the Pooh. I thought that would make a great baby shower theme!
Welcome to a Football Tailgate Baby Shower!
|The food table!! Complete with football field runner made out of a brown paper roll, hand-painted numbers and lines and topped off with X and O confetti. The X and O’s are the small wooden ones found at Michaels. They, as well as the cheer megaphones were spray painted to match the decor.|
Welcome to my house tour of the Brady Bunch Bungalow A.K.A. the BBB
Let me just say first that I love this house! We’ve never had this much space before, I love the layout, and we have an amazing view!! Our lives took an unexpected turn and this house welcomed us with the help of a friend. BUT, let me say this, this house is FUNKY! It definitely has that 70’s/80’s flair. We are renting so we can’t change much of it. THE MISSION: to make this awesome BBB my own.
It’s now 2015 and our resolution is to do something new…something we haven’t before-Start a Blog! As moms, we sometimes put ourselves on the back burner but not this year. This year we’ll post about doing things we love to do. So come along with us as we find our joy one adventure at a time.
