A Very Witchy Halloween Party!

Every year, my awesome sisters and I put together a Halloween bash to celebrate one of our very favorite holidays. We usually have the party in Weatherford so us adults can go to the Haunted Corn Maze but decided it was about time to include our children include our children in our festivities so had the party at my house in Stillwater.

This year, I went with a Witchy theme for all of the decorations. Lisa and Casey made some amazing cupcakes and Chelsi made some delicious Mummies on a Stick (dipped oreos). She also made an AMAZING Witch's Brew for the adults ;) We set up party games outside for all of the kids to play, which turned out really well. They played Witch Hat Toss, Bobbed for Apples, Tag in the dark and threw darts at a witch hat made out of balloons. Justin was an awesome helper with all of the kids games. I think this turned out to be a really great party this year and am very thankful for all of the help and guests that attended.  Hope you all come again next year!

Little Man Customer Party!

I recently created a Little Man birthday party for some good friends and their little boy Eric's first birthday. I used ties and mustaches in the design and it turned out so cute! After the party, Eric's mom sent me some pictures from the party and she did such a great job with all of the decorations. I especially love the little cigar boxes with dipped pretzels. So adorable! The striped paper straws with the mustaches on them are so fun too! The guests also all took photos in their mustaches. Such a fun party! Here are some of the pictures from the party.

The adorable birthday boy Eric. I just adore his little tie t-shirt, complete with mustache!

Kimmie did such a great job pulling together this party and I am glad they chose me to help create it.

More Fall photos with Tripp!

I did some practicing with lighting yesterday with Tripp and with the self-timer with myself. The self-timer is much harder to master than I ever imagined! It kept focusing on the background instead of me. Also found out that it is extremely hard to get a 3 year old to give you a "natural" look. He kept saying "Cheese!", which does not exactly give you a natural smile. We tried laughing, and that just gave me a wide open mouth. Decided he is just still a little young for that ;) Here are a few of the photos!

This picture is SOOO Tripp!
