forest theme invites

Monday, April 1, 2019


I love a good themed party and I usually go for a theme that is timeless and that I can incorporate into our daily living. I absolutely love earthy themes & I plan on doing those for the boys until they’re old enough to pick their own! haha. I decided to go with a national parks theme for Musa’s first birthday! I knew I wanted greens, trees, and all the boho vibes so as I searched for the perfect invite, I came across Basic Invite. I also had some prints of forests in his room that I wanted to incorporate so when I heard of Basic Invite and how their personalization sets them apart from other websites, I was sold! They have an almost unlimited color option that allows you to customize every little detail of your card. You also get to pick the color of your envelope out of 40 different colors! How fun is that?! If you’re a very particular person like me, this is the invite company you wanna go with! I was able to customize literally everything and adding addresses was super easy with their address capturing service. As a mom of two boys under one, every second of the day counts and I'm always looking for ways to save time. By using this address capturing service, I was able to save soo much time and hassle, and get back to our routine without feeling like I spent the whole day working on invites. I don't know about y'all but I, some how always find myself attending all the baby showers around this springy time of year. They have some of the cutest chic baby shower invitations. Check them out here.
I'm also so into whale themes currently (already planning Mika's birthday and thinking of going with that theme!) and saw these adorable whale baby shower invitations they have. Click here to see them!I recently threw one of my good friends a prince theme'd baby shower and I wish I would've seen these prince baby shower invitations before!! Right now Basic Invite is offering %15 off with code 15ff51 so be sure to check them out!
I was so excited to use our personalized card at our party! It turned out so perfect!

tender mornings

Saturday, October 27, 2018



if these aren't the days that i'm not sure what are. these slow, easy, tender mornings are becoming my favorite thing to wake up to. i have never woken up at 7 am with a smile on my face more often than than i do these days haha. just the thought of holding you, cuddling with you, and tickling you in bed makes me feel so lucky to have another day to spend with you. i was made to be your mother and am so proud of it. nothing makes me happier than it. time is going by way too fast and i just want to soak up every moment with you. i just feel so complete. i hope you know how much i love you. there will always be a special place in my heart for you. you made me a mother.

cigar + whiskey bar

Monday, July 16, 2018




planning a party for a guy is always a little bit trickier than planning a party for a girl!...but when my friend told me she wanted to do something along the lines of Italy- godfather- cigars, i was sooo excited and knew we had to do a little vintagy cigar/ whiskey bar for the all the gentlemen at this 29th birthday party! i thought antiquing would be the perfect place to find some of the fun items to really give it the perfect feel. 
we had a blast shopping around antique stores for little props and such to put this scene together - all while rocking bubs of course- rushing through aisles, AND a man had the actual audacity tell us that i need to feed my child, grrr. lol. nonetheless, so. much. fun. we found fedoras for our photo booth, cigar boxes to display, whiskey glasses, a wooden box for cards, & a golden chalkboard for the manly touch. (we looked so hard for vintagy matches but no luck. i ended up just spreading out regular plain old matches which still looked cute). 
we made little Jack and Coke bottle favors which did not disappoint and were already being used at the begining of the party, hah! it always makes me so happy when people actually use the things i put so much effort into making. i can’t tell you how many times i've forgotten to give out favors or people are too scared to touch a desert bar bc they don’t wanna ruin the set up! it’s there to eat y’all!! 
i also added a gorgeous olive branch garland to add the boho element PLUS a touch of Italy, obviiii. 
 (garland here.)
this was my first party to style with baby M AND without hubbies so i literally had no time to take pictures. :( i’ve posted whatever i quickly got before people started showing up and before we actually filled the bar and food table up. we made memories and mental pics which will last a lifetime! sometimes you just gotta put the phone away and engage in good conversation.... or engage into mom mode, lol.
i also found fun little wood stumps at the antique shop which i thought would add a cute rustic charm so i used them as labels. (similar wood here)
as always, this little get together ended up being such a great time with great food and company and i cannot wait wait for our next rendezvous! 
enjoy!
