i have a really good friend that i have never actually met in person. we were both pregnant and on bed rest with our twins at the same time. she in california and i here in baltimore. our twins are about 2 weeks apart and both sets just turned four. jacob and mia, andrea's twins had the cutest birthday party at a bakery. the bakery provided all kinds of adorable favors for the kids and they each were able to decorate their own cupcake to take home. LOVE! i was so excited when andrea contacted me to do some favor tags for her and some fun centerpiece signs to use at the party.
I have promised myself that I wanted to try to do more boy party themes. Having three girls, it is so easy to find myself doing all girl things, all pink! I was really excited when another good friend asked me to do a pirate themed party for her youngest, Max.
And probably the most original, creative party that I have ever done was the Shel Silverstein party. When Robin contacted me to do this party for her son Justin's 4th birthday, I have to admit, I was really nervous about ideas and how to put this party together. I know Shel Silverstein, but never really read many of his books as a child and wasn't really sure. I headed to the library and checked out several of his books and started to research. Well, the ideas just started coming in. Robin is so creative and together, her and I came up with a really cool party. I tried my hand at sketching some illustrations for the invite. I was able to sketch the tree with no problems, but enlisted the help of the super talented duo behind Piggy Bank Parties for the perfect illustration of a little boy. I sent them a picture of Justin and they nailed it! If you ever need any design work check them out! I just mailed out her party pack today and can't wait to see pictures of this fabulous party!
