Weekend Away!

If I am a little slower to reply to emails this weekend, know it is because my hubbie and I are off to celebrate our 5th anniversary! WOOHOO! I will be checking emails and orders a bit, but mostly hanging out with my BFF! Thought I would share a few pictures of the most wonderful man that I admire greatly. He makes me feel like I won the best contest ever!! :) I am one blessed girl and so thankful for my incredible husband!

Loving these!! Kate from And Everything Sweet gives a great tutorial for making these adorable ice cream sundae cupcakes! Her secret.... the "ice cream" is actually frozen buttercream icing! The look of an ice cream sundae without melting! I'll definitely be giving this recipe a try!

Party Favors: Sweet Shoppe Sidewalk Chalk

This week may just be full of party idea posts! I wish I had more time to cruise party blogs, but unfortunately, my days are too busy with eating bon bons and watching Golden Girls. However, I have been on the search for the girls' birthday party and came across another cute and easy idea. We all like easy!! Thought this would be a great favor for the Sweet Shoppe Collection. Thanks Mighty Girl for the cutesy favor idea. My girls love sidewalk chalk! The evidence is on our patio furniture that the girls decided to decorate this afternoon when the sidewalk was "too full". Oh my sweet 3 year olds to be! :)

Tutorial: Ice Cream Cone Party Hat

So I've been on the hunt for fun ideas for the girls' ice cream parlor party! How cute is this! Ice Cream Cone Party Hats! I dont' know that my girls would actually keep them on, but I may have to give these a try. I'll let you know how it goes! :)

Ice Cream Cone Party Hat

1. Prepare the ice cream cone first. Glue large sprinkles onto the base of the cone with white Elmer’s glue. Make a hole into the top of the cone and insert a foil cake topper (ours is from ABC Cake Decorating in Orange, CA). If you don’t have a foil topper you can use your own home made streamers.

2. Using crepe paper, make 2 rosettes. This cute polka dot streamer is from Party City. With a hot glue gun, glue the cone onto the first rosette. Then glue the rosette/cone onto a plain headband. This simple headband is from H&M.

3. Using hot glue, glue the second rosette to the bottom so the headband is sandwiched between the two rosettes. See photo below. Voila! An ice cream cone party hat!

Thank You One Charming Party for the great tutorial!

And Everything Sweet...

I'm so excited to introduce my latest find, a fabulous bakery called "And Everything Sweet"!! Isn't that the cutest name?! Kate from And Everything Sweet makes the MOST beautiful cakes, cookies and adorable baked goods! Wow, they are truly art forms!!
Yes, these are cakes!! I can't imagine how long these must take to make!
So here is the fun part....A few weeks ago, my sweet friend Ashley from Chickadee Chickadee sent me a link to And Everything Sweet. She had come across Kate's blog and told me to check it out. Ashley knows how much I love all the details and Kate definitely has an eye for that too!! As I am strolling through her blog, in awe of every creation, I suddenly come across one of my invitations! To my surprise, And Everything Sweet had designed an amazing cake for one of my customers! I then realized that the customer she designed the cake for was my parents' next door neighbor! I had no idea, nor did Ashley, that And Everything Sweet is local in the Atlanta area! It only gets better as it turns out that she lives just a few minutes down the street from me! How wild is that?! I was so excited! I have been in need of someone local for baked goods and found Kate in the most randon way! I just love those small world moments!

The beautiful cake she designed to coordinate with my "Monkey Girl" invites...
And how cute is this cake for the "Fresh on the Farm" party collection...
Goodness, I could keep going and going! Check out some more of Kate's fabulous creations that coordinate so perfectly with many of Sweet Peach's party collections. If you are in the Atlanta area and need some yummy treats, be sure to contact And Everything Sweet! I have already requested that Kate make some cookies for the girls' ice cream parlor party so I'll be sure and share more pictures of her work soon! :)

The Sweet Peach Paperie Etsy Shop!

The Sweet Peach Paperie Etsy Shop is FINALLY up and running!! Last November, I officially opened my shop, but it sat empty. Business through my blog was so wonderful that I never had time for anything more. Now that my path has changed a bit, I am using my etsy shop for all purchases of printable files. It is wonderful to have the transactions taken care of for me versus sending invoices with each order. Since Eliza was born, I have slowly added my party collection files, but am excited that sales have taken off quickly. There is still lots more that has not made it to my shop... LOTS! So if you want to make a purchase from my website and don't see it in my shop, just ask! Send me an email to with your order and I will list the file in my shop as soon as possible. Thank you for your continued business through this path change!! I am so thankful for all the orders and interest in my paper goodies, but life with an infant will not allow me to meet the high demands as before. I am thrilled that digital sales still allow me the creative outlet I sooo enjoy as well as being a full-time momma to my first three priorities! ;) I get to meet your party needs right from my office thanks to naptime and one fabulous work day a week.... courtesy of my sweet parents!!

So take a stroll through my etsy shop at and let me know what I need to hop on listing next!

Damask Bride Collection: Lisa's Bridal Shower

I was honored to help host a bridal shower for my sweet friend Lisa this weekend! She has found her prince and is getting married the end of August!! Lisa is the most beautiful brunette bride and I wanted a charming party collection to fit her elegance and character just perfectly.
The Damask Bride Collection can also be customized to fit your honored bride just perfectly! Ask for different hair or skin colors if you'd like!! :)

My battery died by the end of the shower so Lisa and I didn't get a picture on my camera. I started looking through all my 9,000 pictures and found one of us still in our single days! :) What a beautiful friend you are and gorgeous bride you will be, Lisa! I am sooo happy for you, sweet friend!

Under the Sea Collection: Jacob's 3rd Birthday!

Jacob's momma did a fabulous job of using the Under the Sea Collection for her little guy's 3rd birthday!
I love this cake!! And how cute are these beach ball party favor cookies! I'm not sure where Jacob's mom purchased the favors, but I saw some JUST like these at the Dollar Tree last week!
Adorable applique t-shirt to match the party theme!
Notice the tub of sand used to hold the fruit kabobs. Great idea!

Fish shaped watermelon skewers! Perfect pool side treat!
Cute, cute party! Happy Birthday Jacob! Your creative momma did a great job!
