Sesame Street Extravaganza!

I look at a LOT of parties and this one made my jaw drop!  Le Petit Party put together this Sesame Street party for a very lucky little boy and it is too amazing for words!  Every single detail is perfection.  The kids (and adults!) must have felt like they were in a Sesame Street wonderland!!  Like many of the parties I see, I sure wish I could have been a guest....or even a fly on the wall at this one!  Effi, thank you so much for sharing.....your ideas are simply amazing!

Ladybug First Birthday Party

My good friend and fabulous photographer, Jenn of Jenn Hoffmann Photography always throws a great party! I was lucky enough to attend her daughter's first birthday party and it was wonderful. She went with a black, red and white ladybug theme which was dainty and adorable! Of course, little Ella was wearing the perfect outfit and all of the other party details were coordinated beautifully with the theme.

Shamrock Marshmallow Pops

I saw this adorable St. Patrick's Day idea from Poca Cosa and had to share....they are using one of the free printables we posted earlier this week from TomKat Studios

Take Heart shaped marshmallows. Dip them in green candy melts & sprinkles. Let the candy harden. Remove toothpicks, dip bottoms of the hearts in candy melts again & gently press together to form the clover. Once completely cool, gently push in pop stick. Wrap pops in clear cellophane, ribbon & add a cute St. Patrick's tag from TomKat Studios

Construction Zone Birthday Party

I feel SOOOO lucky to have Sarah from Chachke Designs as a designer for Paperbox Press. These are some pictures from her son's 3rd birthday party....obviously with a construction zone theme. As a fellow mom of a toddler boy, I know there are few things that little boys love more than trucks, dirt, and construction equipment! Not only does this party LOOK amazing, but it appears the kids had a blast! Sarah, if we lived in the same state, I would insist on being added to your permanent party guest list!

Invitations from Paperbox Press

Cupcake Wraps/Toppers, Favor Tags, additional coordinating party paper goods

Dump Truck Soaps
