A few weeks ago we took a first stab at a pink snowman party. Today we are refining the vision to create an adorable little girl's first birthday celebration.
The inspiration is this Zazzle invitation. Karl, we agree, the cute little pink cap beats the traditional snowman hat, hands down. We did not want the save the date to match the invitation so together we came up with a coordinating look to set the party's tone yet not take away from the invitation itself.……

Gender Reveal Party Ideas
Creating a gender reveal party post has been on the top of our “to do” list for ages. Since we still have not gotten around to creating our own, we thought we would at least share some ideas from one of our “go to” party suppliers, Windy City Novelties. And as usual, we could not help ourselves and ended up editing their copy and even throwing in a few (ok, more than a few) ideas of our own.
What are Gender Reveal Parties?
Gender reveal parties have become quite popular over the past few years. Oftentimes, gender reveal parties are held in the place of a baby shower, and both men and women are invited to the event. However, there are couples that will hold both a gender reveal party and a baby shower. At the gender reveal party, the guests, and sometimes the parents themselves, will find out the sex of their unborn child. The purpose of the party is to share the news and celebrate with close friends and family.

We've already touched upon invitations, party favors, and party kits for your Royal Baby Shower. So today we are focusing on fabulous royal baby shower gifts. We particularly love this Royal Baby Gift Basket because it does not take the whole royal theme thing too seriously. How adorable is this frog prince theme fabric lined baby storage hamper. Inside you will find everything you need to care for baby as well as keepsake gifts to keep forever. The ultra soft plush baby security blanket doubles as a rattle. (This gift is available in two sizes) We also think this royal baby gift basket could double as a buffet table centerpiece at your royal baby shower. It will definitely elicit knowing smiles from all! Continue Reading →
It took us about two seconds to fall in love with this oh so chic simple frosted cake covered in an assortment of macarons in ombré colors and festive sparkler candles. And none of us were the least bit surprised we found this macaron decorated cake on One Kings Lane, one of our “go to” curators of all things chic. Continue Reading →

You can wear red almost any day of the year (at least I do) but pink is a bit harder to pull off – except on Valentine's Day. This year choose one of these head turning designer looks for a fraction of their retail cost. Rent the Runway makes looking your best easy and affordable. Do we have a favorite? We are obsessed with the Narciso Rodriguez Geo Shift Dress and Blumarine Amber Waves Jumpsuit. So party pretty in pink on Valentine's Day! Continue Reading →
There is still plenty of time to order your Valentine's Day party plates & paper goods. Remember even if you aren't hosting a big bash, buy a pack or two of these cute Valentine's Day party plates just so you can create a festive breakfast (think heart shaped waffles!), lunch and dinner for your own family. It would be festive and unexpected – exactly how memories are made.

Today we received an email seeking ideas for a snowman theme girl's 1st birthday party. We loved the idea and once we started searching, we had trouble reigning ourselves in. Although we gained inspiration from some of our other Winter Wonderland party packages, this party needed to be different – we wanted it to be pink!
We always like to start with the invitations because to us invitations are like the title of a paper – they set the tone for the entire party. We particularly like the wording of the light blue and pink card inviting guests to join them for Winter Onederland Fun! How adorable is that for a January winter birthday party!
Next we searched for paper party goods. We could not find anything particularly girly so we decided this might be the perfect occasion to create your own party kit. All you need to do is peel and stick an adorable pink snowman label / sticker onto a solid pink paper plate and cup. Best of all most of the stickers can be personalized to wish a happy day to the birthday girl!

We love adult Barbie costumes for Halloween, for girlfriend birthday parties, and even as Mom +Me Matching playdates outfits. Our biggest issue is finding something fun yet classy to wear. Well, look no further. Now, Jeremy Scott's hot Moschino runway looks are available to rent at Rent The Runway! This collection is great for a night out on the town but would also make for a great Barbie Halloween costume. Don't miss your chance to reserve a piece from the Moschino Capsule Collection today! Just an FYI – Izzy tried to rent a fabulous dress from Rent the Runway about a week before her event. I cannot express how disappointed she was when her size was quickly grabbed up and was unavailable for her weekend. I talked her in to trying the larger size which worked out great but she did have a back up just in case. So the moral of this story is if you know you want to wear one of these fabulous outfits for Halloween – reserve TODAY!
If you want to be the absolute hottest woman in the room, order the MOSCHINO Barbarella Jacket & Skirt. Yes, it will set you back a pretty penny but it will cost no where near as much as if you actually purchased this outfit. In addition to Barbie, this particular combination would make a fantastic Elle Woods.
Looking for something a bit more reasonably priced? Here are a few more options!
Don't forget the Blonde Wig!
