To kick off our showcase of birthdays and celebrations, I'm going to show off my oldest daughter's 7th birthday party! Abby turned seven and wanted to invite a group of friends to go horseback riding. I was a bit nervous about this as I have 4 kids ages 2-7, and that alone is enough to scare the horses! Did I mention it was late November too? So we brainstormed and decided on a horse painting party. Abby loves horses and art, so this was perfect!
I spent hours online looking for ideas, and I came across this local artist who hosts painting parties and HAD A HORSE CANVAS on her website that Abby LOVED!!
So the party planning began! We had about 10 of Abby's friends over (along with my 3 girls). Katie and her mother were oh so sweet and set up all of the canvases, paints, water cups, etc. for the girls before the party. My kitchen became an art studio in an instant!
I'm really excited about actually using our blog to not only show you our latest designs but also to showcase spectacular parties and celebrations! Our shop specializes in personalized items for special occasions, primarily birthdays and holidays. In line with that, I've been thinking...why not add great party ideas, pictures, inspiration, and more to our blog? I'm a party planner by heart, and I love to coordinate every last detail of my children's birthday parties. I truly appreciate when I see others do the same. That said, I'm really, really, really excited about sharing my finds on the Internet as well as photos from my sweet customers with you to inspire you with your party planning and special days! Let's enjoy this journey together...and let's start with my new favorite birthday collection designed with my son in mind and at the request of a customer who wanted a construction themed birthday party! So, so cute!!
