Fridays at the Farm

Hey all! I just wanted to share a little about a new endeavor I'm taking part in this year, that I'm very excited about! I've joined forces with an amazingly ambitious friend of mine to start a Friday morning craft group at her new, and adorable, farm house! We're so creatively calling it, "Fridays at the Farm"!

Follow my friend Susan's blog, here, to learn more about each craft project, how to sign up, and a little about her awesome family of NINE! Our first Friday is FILLLED UP, but I'm too excited not to show off what we'll be up to. We'll be painting pallet signs. Oh so trendy right now, amiright?!
These signs will spruce up any room with a sweet and simple phrase. Susan and my original hope was to copy be inspired by a few of the amazing signs we found on Pinterest {like the ones shown above} but after a long night of trial and error we decided to modify our project for our 2-hour Friday morning session by bringing the size of the sign down and only offering a selection of signs that are 1-3 word phrases! Here are the phrases we came up with...


Check out our schedule for the first semester of classes and click here to sign up! My Gift Wrap class is looking pretty slim, so SIGN up! :) I've been really wanting to be a part of a group like this for a while {ever since becoming a mom} and am so happy to have met a fellow mama who shared the same vision! Susan is a MACHINE and ever since meeting her, she's inspired me to up my game, in all areas of my life, really! I am SO looking forward to this venture with her and hope to inspire other mamas alike!!

Today is Fin's first day of 4K {woot woot!! tear sniff sniff!! I'm experiencing split personality disorder} so I'm hoping to get back to blogging a bit more! Stay tuned!

Customer Approved! Perfect Little Sailor Party

I absolutely LOVE when customer's send photos from their parties, using nellie*design's printable party decor! And this party, submitted by little Amelia's mommy, Monica, made my jaw drop! Check out this little cutie's Sailor Party, beautifully photographed by Lymaris Roman Photography!

What a fabulous first birthday celebration! From the gorgeous first birthday "smash cake" to the mini fish tank favors, every detail was beautifully met! Printable signs and tags were used to tie in the sailor theme throughout...
Sweet little Amelia looks so cute squeezed between her parents with frosting everywhere! Check out the fabulous decor below! I LOVE the clear balloons with pink & navy confetti in each and fun #1 pinata, adorn with nellie*design's printable sign!
A fun and interactive way to keep your guests busy and record the memories is this adorable photo booth! Each guest held up a life-size poloroid frame with printable pennant banner and other nautical decor! How fun! I created custom, printable, party hats to match the original party decor, and they look perfect displayed on the party table...
I love this banner with a photo of Amelia each month of her first year! Such a great idea to display at a first birthday!
Each table setting had a sailor party hat and pink or blue bucket of goodies! I can only image how each little guest felt at this party! So special!
These cupcakes look to-die-for! I love the cupcake toppers Monica found to match the party decor!

How great is this chalkboard sign with all of Amelia's first year stats! Such a great way to remember her in this moment!
I love this beautifully matched, two-tiered, birthday cake! Is that an iridescent frosting? Gorgeous.

 Happy Birthday sweet Amelia! Your birthday party was an inspiration and you are a doll!
Create your own sweet and stylish Sailor Party, using nellie*design's printable party invitation & decor!

Pizza Chef Party • Navy turned 2!


Our little Navy Bean turned TWO! Whoa. We had a family celebration for her and three of her cousins with March/April birthdays. The party was for two boys and two girls, turning 1, 2, 3 & 4! What to do, what to do... A Pizza Party! Mustaches and Bows and Pizza oh my!


My amazing mom, who couldn't be at the actual party, contributed her amazing talents in the form of mini felt pizzas, personalized aprons and little chef hats! Even my "big" niece and nephew received their very own party favors! Thanks Grandma Barbara for making SUCH special gifts for each little chef!
I created printable Activity Place Mats for the Kids to color on while waiting on their pizzas...
A Printable Pennant Red Gingham banner spruced up the entry way to our Home Pizzeria nicely! And, take a look at two of the other Birthday Cutie Pies ... Our family makes adorable people!
Each hat was either given a gingham bow or mustache and each apron was personalized with red paint...
The mini felt pizzas were presented in a white pizza box {from here} with a printable, customized, label on the outside...
Once I had the red gingham theme going, I ran with it with these perfect paper place mats {which I also put inside each felt pizza box}!
Check out the adorable cake my sis-in-law had matched to our theme! And it was GOOD on top of that! Of course, the forks had to match too!
Mustache props made great decorations as well as funny faces for photos!

Red Gingham ribbon, table cloths, paper plates and place mats tied this theme together nicely!
I used one of the printable Pizza Box Labels as a sign for the door, spruced up with a cute red gingham bow. How cute is my oldest niece, displaying her lovingly-made felt pizza and mustache!
Oh the mustache theme... hasn't gotten old for me yet! ;)
I used a red gingham plastic table cloth to create this ribbon garland {so easy! Cut strips and tie}...
Oh my goodness gracious... look at these big 4 year olds! Cousins and Besties...
The Leis Family is filled with very chubby cheeked cuties, and this little guy is NO exception!
There you have it! A perfect theme for two boys and two girls celebrating their big day! I enjoyed co-hosting with the other mommy's/my sis-in-laws to create such a special day for our precious people!
