{Party Tip Tuesday} Shop Your House

Party decorations don't have to be expensive. Before you head out to the party store, shop your house. You'll be amazed at what you have if you just think outside the box. This is especially true for children's character themed parties, if you or your child chose a character theme, more than likely he/she has those toys laying around so you may as well incorporate them in your party décor. Have fun with it!

{Real Parties} Camping Party

I know I just recently got around to posting my youngest son's 3rd birthday but here are the photos from his 4th birthday party.

He really wanted ANOTHER dino dig or as he put it...Jurassic Park, but we settled on a camping theme. Sadly, this will probably be one of the last years that I have input on choosing a theme.

Welcome to Camp JC:

I love unconventional invitations...I thought this theme
merited a Jiffy Pop invitation. Who doesn't love old
school Jiffy Pop!?!




My mom found these pie tins in bulk, it was a perfect addition
one of my favorite activities was the s'mores bar

Photo booth fun


Hope you enjoyed your stay at Camp JC!

{Real Parties} Pink & Pearly Baby Shower

I've been meaning to post this shower for quite some time. This was a surprise shower thrown by Prateek for his wife Sapna. He was great to work with, once I started throwing out ideas, he knew exactly what she would like. We settled on a 'Chanel' inspired baby shower because of Sapna's love of fashion and all things girly.

I didn't get a picture of the outside of the venue which I really regret. I found the cutest form to put outside with the signature drink. This is one of my 'test' pictures I took in my office.

{Party Tip Tuesday} Start The Party At The Door

On occasion, I receive emails asking for party tips or party advice so I've decided to start "Party Tip Tuesday".  I will gather up some of my favorite party tips and post them every Tuesday.
I hope you can put them to good use!
 
I will also be posting them via Instagram and Facebook if you would like to follow me.

{Real Parties} Little Chefs Pizza Party

I know I've mentioned how lucky I am to live in a great neighborhood where I love my neighbors. Yesterday, I hosted a play date pizza making party for the kids.

The little chefs got to decorate a chefs hat and make their own pizza and decorate a cupcake. It turned out to be a ton fun!
