Surprise Anniversary Party – The Setup

This past weekend, my sisters and I hosted a SURPRISE 30th Anniversary Party for my parents.  Let me just say, I’m never doing a surprise party again!  While the planning was SO much fun, the stress of keeping it all a secret and telling fibs was just too much!  And to top if off, Old Man Weather was so cooperative with a week full of rain, that we had to change venues the day before!  Alas, the party went off without a hitch and was, well, a surprise!  They didn’t have a clue!  Stay tuned to see their reactions in Part 2 tomorrow!

Keep Calm…

I couldn’t resist… My printer is going like mad printing these onto iron on transfer paper so I can give them to everyone I see between now and 4am when the Royal Wedding starts… I know, ridiculous, but I couldn’t help myself!  Click here for the downloadable template.

A First Birthday Party!

I had to share the pictures from Etta’s adorable First Birthday Party – they were just too cute to not!  Haute Papier worked hard to create a fun and playful theme based around unique colors and funky fonts.  Some of our favorite elements were the cake pops inspired by Bakerella, personalized plates from Boatman Geller, and polka dot garland, sewn by yours truly!  Stay tuned for a tutorial on the garland!
