My son turned one last year and I wanted to create a special party for him. The inspiration came from my son’s nursery: a pale yellow-grey palette. I decided to keep the theme simple and not too baby-ish.
In our house, Valentine's Day is the perfect time to celebrate our love of family and friends, so of course we threw a party! Also, I have two boys so if I get the chance to throw a pink party, I am taking it!
This past weekend was our twin daughters' first birthday! I wanted to have a twin theme, so I decided it would be "milk & cookies". In planning the party, I was totally inspired by French macarons and their pastel colors.
My friend Lisa asked me to help with her son's second birthday. She wanted a chic modern Curious George birthday party with bright bold colors, but not the typical red and yellow that you often associate with Curious George, so we went with yellow and teal instead. She also wanted to be sure the guests (nearly all toddlers) were well occupied, so fun activities were a must. More
