Lyon’s 8-BIT Minecraft Party

Well, I thought last year was hard with the Star Wars theme…but this year, I was even more stumped when the lil man insisted on a Minecraft party… I did a LOT of research. All up, the most time-consuming part was familiarizing myself with the theme (Lyon even endured trying to teach me how to […]

Mika’s Unicorn Party

Mika turned 3 (back in November!) and is into all things magical, so naturally I was super excited to put together her unicorn-themed birthday party! Being so close to Christmas, we had a limited budget, but I think we did good (and Mika was beyond stoked with her special day). Note the incredible venue location, […]

An Enchanted Pamper Party

A pamper party, with bubbly? Um, YES PLEASE! When an opportunity like this presents itself, you grab it and the bubbly with both hands! I gathered a bunch of delicious treats, invited over some of my fave #girlbosses and we got started on the incredibly difficult job of being pampered…

Lyon’s Star Wars Party

This year, the lil man insisted on having a Star Wars theme and going to Laserforce for his birthday…which was pretty much my worst nightmare when it comes to parties, because not only would it have to be scaled right back for transportation purposes and lack of space at the venue, but I also know […]

So close, yet so far…

Sometimes it feels like you’re getting nowhere…I’ve been sanding, and painting, and painting, and then painting some more… It wasn’t until it took everything outside to check the paint coverage in natural light, that I realised just how well it’s all coming together!   AND really, I need to cut myself some slack – I’d […]

“Why is there dirt in the fridge?!”

Mika turned 2 recently, and we threw her a Fairy Garden Party at home. Having had to cater to all sorts of allergies/intolerances in everyday life, I thought it would be a good idea to make something fun that would cover all the guests by being entirely “allergy-free”.
