Baby Boy Sprinkle Shower Planning

One of my dearest friends is expecting her second child in April. To celebrate, my oldest friends are getting together for baby boy brunch. We'll be meeting at a local hometown favorite, the Greyhound Tavern, to sprinkle our friend and her baby boy with precious gifts.

As part of the planning, I pulled together this concept. To be honest, I have been crushing on this Tiny Prints baby shower invitation since I saw it on their homepage slider. Between the bow tie and polka dots, it's perfection. I also adore that bow tie cake!

Since we will be in a restaurant, I think a little activity will be fun, so I tied in a "wishes for baby" concept.

I also thought the mini "POP" champagne bottles would work well as a festive party favor. Even a favor, the mom-to-be can "pop" in a month or so to celebrate the arrival of baby #2.

Have you thrown a "sprinkle" shower for baby #2?

Highlights from the Cincinnati Home & Garden Show

This weekend, I attended the Cincinnati Home & Garden Show. I'm not sure why I haven't gone in the past, but it rocked my world. Of course, there were many dream upgrades, but there were also smaller scale deals within my budget.

There were great examples of home staging, so I thought I would share a couple of highlights.


What a stunning setup! 
It felt like walking through a fairy tale.

A gorgeous example of a backyard patio.


How convenient! A side table and drink bucket - all in one.

I love the layering used in these place settings!

This tiered server reminded me that I still need to pick up one for my own home.

Candy Land Birthday Party Inspiration

I'm currently working on a Candy Land birthday party for a special little girl who is turning one soon. This precious little girl was actually born only a couple hours after my wedding day. Her mom, who was one of my bridesmaids, went into labor right after our wedding ceremony.

Since I have a very special bond with this little one, I wanted to make her first birthday party extra special!

Here's what I put together...
