We had the sweetest time celebrating the girls' 2nd birthday, even though I have been delayed in posting pictures of their special day!! It was perfect weather, surrounded by dear friends and family, and simply a great morning of celebrating our little girls. We were also blessed with my dear friend Holly who photographed all the fun! You can see more of her work at hollykittlephoto.blogspot.com! So here it is, Anna Claire and Julia's Garden Party... I cleaned up some old pots, a coat of spray paint, added some gingham ribbon and they became the perfect display for our "rakes and shovels!"
For the main centerpiece, I bought a pink watering can from HomeGoods and filled it with flowers from Michaels. The metal laterns also came from Michaels. The great thing about a garden party at the end of the summer is all the clearance garden prices!!
The bee and flower fondant toppers came from BB Cakes. You can see more of Becky's great cake designs at b-bcakes.blogspot.com! The gingham cupcake liners came from Michaels and were just the perfect colors so I couldn't resist!
The girls' adorable party dresses and headbands were custom made by my sweet friend Ashley with Festive Frills. She is opening a new etsy shop soon so be sure to check out chickadeechickadee.etsy.com for a great collection of handmade clothing and hair accessories!
I bought the pink paper pots from Walmart and filled them with granola, pretzel sticks and a gummy worm to make the perfect "Garden Grub." This particular banner was compliments of my crafty aunt and her awesome circuit machine. My banners available for purchase will be on display in the garden party collection.
My mom made this great "Dirt Cake" with oreo cookie crumbs creating the dirt surface. A garden shovel was used for serving the cake! :)
The party favors for the girls were small watering cans that came from Target's summer pool collection. The boy favors were rakes that I found at the Dollar Tree!
My favorite party girls...
Happy Birthday to my sweet girls!! I can't wait for more birthdays and hope you always feel extra loved on your special day! :)

I've been wanting to make some notepads for a while, but it seemed to keep falling to the bottom of my list. I recently designed a few, sent them to the print shop and just LOVED the way they have turned out! So cute!! Each pad is 50 sheets and approximately 4 x 5.5 inches. Four pads of this size fit to a printed page so it is necessary to order 4 pads. Each pad can be a different design or be personalized differently, but 4 choices are needed to place an order. If you'd prefer 2 larger pads, that is possible as well. A large notepad and a small notepad together would make a pretty cute gift!! Start thinking Christmas!! :)

These fun invites were made for a girls' weekend away in honor of their bride-to-be. They are having a honeymoon themed shower and the wedding colors are black and white so put that together and voila... "Beth will be a Mrs. oh so soon, Let's get her ready for her tropical honeymoon!"

This past weekend, we finally celebrated my sweet girls and their 2nd birthday with a garden party picnic. I have lots to show you from their special day, but here is a peek at a few of the details for now. My BFF of Holly Kittle Photographry made a special two hour drive to party with us and take pictures of all the action. It was a sweet morning of celebrating with friends and family, and I of course had tons of fun preparing for their big day! Lots more to come soon!

My dear friend Natalie had her triplets a couple weeks ago and I am honored to be helping with her baby shower! The babies were born at 26 weeks, but are doing amazingly well considering their early arrival. Here is the invite that I made for her three little peas...

Football season is officially here!! It has come quickly this year, but is always eagerly awaited in our family. I am a UT grad and my husband is a huge GA fan! We are divided one game a year, but otherwise, SEC football is pretty big at our house.
I made some GA Tech enclosure cards recently so I thought it would be fun to share some samples for the rest of you. Any note card, enclosure card, or notepad can be made into the team colors of your choice. All enclosure style cards can also be made into stickers, which is a lot of fun too!
