Etsy Shop

13 May

After going back and forth I finally decided to open up an¬†Etsy shop. I am so excited about finally doing this, it’s a big step for me! I wish I could keep all of my furniture restoration projects, but I think if I bring home one more dresser without the intent of selling it my husband might lose it! ūüôā We are slowly becoming over run with furniture.

I get so excited finding a cool¬†piece at an estate sale or thrift store because I can see the potential. I usually am giddy with a find and can’t wait to get home to get started on painting it to see what it will become. ¬†I have found it’s just as exciting when that piece finds a new home, and someone else can feel that same way. I am starting small and have listed a few things.

Party Time!

21 Jun

So you want to throw a party, but the whole idea seems a little overwhelming and a bit daunting? Where do I start? What should the theme be, where is it going to take place, who should I invite, where do I get the supplies?! Ok, Ok one step at a time! First, I always think of a theme even if it’s just a few colors that I want to thread throughout the party. Here are a few websites that will help you pick a theme and buy all the party supplies you need to ensure your party is epic…or at least it will look really good!

Birthday Party Express¬†Why you’ll love it: It’s a one-stop shop. It has a ton of theme ideas and everything is packaged together so you don’t need to stress that the party hats match the plates, etc.

Oriental Trading Co.- Why you’ll love it: It’s great for bulk purchases, such as favors, or prizes for games. They have endless options.

Party City– Why you’ll love it: It has great sales and great variety.

Ikea– Why you’ll love it: It’s the dark horse of party supplies, but you can get some great paper goods for good deals and the colors are just a little bit different.

Save on Crafts– Why you’ll love it: This site is for my DIYers, so of course I am in love with it. If you are looking to get creative then this is your site. They also have the must current trends when it comes to entertaining.

Etsy: Why you’ll love it: Talk about customized! I love Etsy because you can really personalize anything and the shops are so easy to work with.

1st Birthday Cupcake Bash

Lately I have been loving kids birthday party ideas. I don’t have any kids of my own yet so when my friend who is throwing her little girls first birthday party¬†came to me for some ideas I couldn’t be more excited to help. The theme is cupcakes, what is cuter then that for a little girl?

An easy way to decorate for a kid’s birthday party are with banners and table decor. I love the cupcake themed paper decorations from Get The Party Started.¬†The Etsy shop will also work with you to customize your order, so if the colors aren’t exactly right you can change them!

Another cute way to dress up the party is to have the party guests dress up. Now I know that party hats seem out dated but I can’t imagine anything cuter then a bunch of little girls dressed in the adorable party hats from¬†Booptey Lu’s.

Of course anyone that knows me is aware of my lantern and pompom infatuation. I couldn’t resist when I spotted this cupcake themed party from Ander Ruff.¬†They did a cute make your own cupcake party theme complete with personalized bottles of milk for the end.

Last but not least my favorite party decoration. Balloons, of course! They are an inexpensive way to make a big statement, and is a must have at a first birthday party. Check out this adorable picture from Kara’s Party Ideas.
