Oh to be a kid again!

This amazing even was hosted by R. Jack Balthazar Events.
A movie themed premiere for an animated film featuring 3 distinctive "environments".
The first area was "Sunny Florida" featuring Oranges, Gerber Daisies, Seashells and Sand!
The tables were picnic tables with umbrellas to give that outside feel!
They were decorated by large Beach Buckets filled with Sand, Sun Hats, Sunglasses and more! All of the things you need in "Sunny Florida"!

The next area was a "Schoolhouse Cafeteria" theme. Long cafeteria tables were set up with arrangements in metal lunch boxes. The lunch boxes were filled with Wheatgrass, Apples, Daisies, Rulers, and Pencils. Very cute and inexpensive centerpieces!

The final area was the "Mad Scientist Lab". I absolutely love this idea! Tall glass cylinder vases filled with water then, they added blue plants and blue glass "bubbles". The best part about these were the Safety Glasses on the front! GENIUS! I love it! They also had smoking beakers on the cocktail tables! Think...Mad Scientist Party for a little boy! Or girl....I can't leave them out of course!

Hope you enjoyed!

No More "Whites" Party

This is a first for me! I am trying my hand at Polyvore.

Really fun ways to put together theme ideas!
So, on with the party!
I was over at Divine Party Concepts blog and I saw this cute party idea for Labor Day!
"Say Good Bye to Whites Party!"
I thought it would be fun to come dressed in your favorite whites....
tennis shoes...shirts...dress...or flip flops!

How about serving all White foods like...
White chocolate fondue served with
Marshmellows and Pretzels for dipping

Boo Hoo Monday

Well, it is official my little girl is off to Kindergarten
and Mommy is having a hard morning!
I never fully realized just how time goes by so fast until now.
Is anyone else second guessing themselves?
Have I done enough?
Have I told her how proud I am?
Have I hugged her enough?
Have I told her how much I REALLY LOVE HER?
These are the moments that truly matter...we can plan parties all day long but,
these are the moments to remember and cherish forever!
Feel free to share your first day of school stories!
I would love to hear them!

Sent her off to school with a kiss and a little bracelet
that has a heart charm
with Abby 8-24-09
love mom and dad
She was so excited!
Find it here!
