Blog Upgrade Coming Soon

BIG NEWS – BLOG UPGRADE COMING SOON

Blog Upgrade & Fall Baby Shower

Today I am sharing some big remodel news- nope, not a remodel reveal of my home. . . my BLOG is about to go from blah to TA-DA!

Actually, to be more precise, it will soon have a more streamlined, clean and simplified appearance!

While that is going on, behind the scenes, here is a stunning FALL BABY SHOWER to boost your baby shower planning ideas, if you are helping out with a baby shower this autumn –

I don’t often share too many boyish themed parties and baby showers – so this is a rare treat.  I love how the aqua blue, which is a subtle way to add boyish decor into any seasonal theme, has been incorporated into all the decorations, including the fall leaves garland!

I am very excited and can’t wait to share more amazing party decorating ideas, home decor inspiration, and diy projects on the new upgraded blog.

Be sure to stop by in the next few days to see the big makeover!  Until then, have a great week.

Pinwheels & Party Ideas

PINWHEELS & PARTY IDEAS

Great News!  I just added hundreds of Ready To Ship Pinwheels to my shop! So many fun and colorful summery patterns now available.  Plus I have many more sets coming in the next week.

Pinwheels are perfect at any event, celebration or party and my solid color pinwheels coordinate to any themed birthday or baby shower perfect.

Just request your custom colors from my shop- HERE

Pinwheels are perfect as a garland hanging on the wall behind the party table wall or draped across the front of the party table.

 Pinwheels were cleverly incorporated as favors but still as part of the party table background at this butterflies and pinwheels party.  How fun and easy to create!

Pinwheels are also ideal as table centerpieces – add them to vases or recycled bottles.

Pinwheels are also perfect as wedding decorations- use them as table number signs or as escort cards.  Give one to each of your guests at the reception check-in with their table number in the center of each pinwheel and then each guest can take a pinwheel home as a memorable keepsake from your wedding day.

 I offer many more pinwheel options in my wedding shop-  I DO Wedding & Bridal Designs

Pinwheels are so fun on cakes and cupcakes too as toppers!

Polka dots and pinwheels just go together perfectly!

Pinwheels and the beach go together for so much fun too.

Solid and pattern pinwheels in all sizes are available in my shop – PINWHEEL PRETTIES

The crepe paper streamer table backdrop at this party is so easy to create. Just cut and hang in straight strips.

Anchors and sailboats are the dominate decor at this nautical first birthday party!

This is a great set up with lots of stripes and sand dollars and don’t forget the straws.  Don’t forget if you have some beach decor around the home, those make perfect props at a nautical party table- like the giant anchor, lifesaver, and lighthouse at this party above.

This ahoy party features great balloon styling!  Those columns of balloons flanking the table make a stunning statement.

Be sure to visit my Pinterest balloon board for more balloon diy ideas.

This adorable nautical baby shower in a “Welcome Aboard” theme in soft pastel blues is perfect for a little baby boy on the way!

Hope these nautical parties have inspired you to start planning your next event!
