 I know, I know , Christmas is only 19 days away and here I am showing a summer party…but better late than ever, right :)

Now, I do understand that Summer is gone and that everywhere you look all you see are winter parties or holiday related things, but hey, I live in Florida and it seems that Summer is here to stay :)

 I showed you the invitation I designed for my son’s 3rd birthday. Today I will finally show you how it all turned out.

Like I mentioned before, the party was supposed to be at the club house, by the pool, but hurricane Isaac decided to be part of it and we had to have it in our house, something we decided on the morning of the party.

The theme was easy, but coming out with the decor took a bit longer. This party was very different from the other ones I did for him.

This one was really planned last minute, and when I say last minute I mean the week of.

Thank God for Homegoods!!

We used a net that my mom brought from Brazil  and the decor I had from my Homegoods as the background.

The sweet table had an Octopus cake, Snorkel cupcakes, yummy sea creature cookies ( by Brooke from  BB Sweets), Octopus Pops ( made by yours truly), Divers Mousse ( Aren’t they so cute???), Ocean Jello, and all the Brazilian favorites – brigadeiro, beijinho and doce de leite ninho :)

Oh, and my favorite, the cake pops – I could not believe my eyes when I saw what Ximena from Cake Pops By Xpressive Designs  created.

They were PERFECT!

She even made the diver with curly hair.

We had a Hot Dogs and Hamburger Bar, along with Seaweed Salad ;)

And make sure you take a look at the sea turtle we had. Nice from Marvelous Brigadeiro made the cutest watermelon sea turtle I’ve ever seen!!

I incorporated the logo we created for the invitation on all the paper goods, and personalized even the hamburger’s wrappers.

Guests took home chevron paper bags ( for sale on my shop) with lots of sweets ( hey, it’s a kids party) including delicious cookies made by the talented Janet from Sweet Dough.

I won’t hold you much longer, be prepared for a ton of pictures. 

Look for all the vendors at the end of the post.

Enjoy!

Oh dear Internet, things in this side of the coast have been chaotic to say the least. With my school,  Joshua going to school (another post on its own…), relatives visiting, parties being planned and the whole mother/wife thing,  it just seemed that 24 hours were not enough. But we are now slowly going back to our regular routine.

I was asked to plan a baby shower for a sweet mommy-to-be expecting her first baby – a baby girl. The grandma’s to be were the ones hosting the shower and they wanted the party to have a wintery feel to it.

A few months back I came accross a post from Hostess with the Mostess where Jennifer created this adorable Yarn Pom Snowpeople and I knew right away that I wanted to create that for this baby shower too. It was just too YARN cute!!

I went with an apple green and fuchsia color and the first thing I created was the invitation. From there I started to work on the SnowLadies ( so easy to make and came out so adorable!!) and the rest was history :)

I created a dessert table using a vintage iron Corsican crib.  Once again may favorite cake stands came to play and oh did they play… I just love how versatile they are…a change of ribbon and voila…PERFECT!!

We had baby vanilla cupcakes, baby jars with coconut custard, pink and green M&Ms, Coconut bonbons and Hazelnut bonbons. Delicious!!!!

S’mores wrapped in cellophane and tied with ribbons were placed on each table set with a little poem chosen by the family.

I also did a diaper cake ( my second one, YAY) and I love how it came out!And I also made table runners for this party ( NO SEWING REQUIRED) using just fabric, ribbon and a hot glue gun :)

I had a so much fun creating the special things for this shower and I hope you enjoy how it turned out.

Couple of months ago I had the privilege of styling a Sock Monkey Inspired baby shower for  my dear friend Juliana. You might remember her invitation from here.

I went with the same color I used for the invitation. I made a personalized wreath using fabric and the baby’s name Caleb (yep, Gigi did her thing).

We wanted to have a diaper cake ( my first one) instead of the cake – there were cupcakes instead made by Gabi Walker, and I just love how it all turned out.

I was so excited to show off my newest acquisition - a mirrored dresser that I found at Homegoods ( I just heart that store so much!!).

Instead of having the clothesline with the oneses I decided to use the vintage frame I got at Material for The Arts the last time I was there and display the oneses inside as if they were some Art. There were mason jars decorating the tables and my favorite party item: red stripped paper straw ( love the vintage look paper straws bring to any party)

We sent guests home with chocolate covered honey breads wrapped in ribbon.

There were also  personalized thank you cards with M&Ms and handmade crochet monkeys by avapapernewyork

Pam Rodrigues was in Boston on that day photographing Bella Angel’s 1st Birthday so my dear friend Joyce Walker was the girl behind the lens this time.

Hope you like all the details.

I had so much fun styling Juliana’s party. Congrats amiga on the arrival of baby Caleb ( he is now almost a month old)

If you need paper straws or looooove the Monkey invitation please stop by my Etsy shop

Hope you have an amazing Friday!!!
