DIY New Years poppers

30 Dec

This year my family along with a bunch of friends are renting a cabin in Big Bear for the New Years weekend. Being the festive person I tend to be I wanted to bring some fun to our low key celebration. I went to Cost Plus World Market and purchased Holiday Crackers but still feel we need more. I remembered that I have a bunch of balloons and confetti from a photo shoot I did a while back, and the light bulb flashed above my head. The morning we r set to leave I gathered up all the different sizes of balloons I have (everything from small water balloons to the larger 36″) and headed straight to my storage unit to hunt for confetti. SUCCESS…

On the road I stuffed each balloon with confetti, using both types for the larger balloons and the torn loose style for the smaller balloons.

Stay tuned for pics of my DIY New Years party favors. They are gonna be a blast.

Band Aids & Bows Baby Shower

28 Dec

A while back I was honored to throw my girlfriend Jessy a baby shower. I came up with the theme Band-aids and Bows for this event and it was such a blast. Posh Paperie designed the adorable invitations and the rest came together beautifully! I used lots of gauze, ace bandages, and band aids together with lace, ribbons and tons of yarn pom poms to decorate this fun shower. Thanks to Posh Paperie For the amazing invites and JPE photography for capturing the fun.
