The Party...PART ONE!



I have thought and thought about how I wanted to blog about the party! I think I am going to do it in two parts. There is just too much to fit in one post. Part 1-details! The part that spent hours and hours of planning! Part 2-the actually party!

We had the party at my cousin's house. I had asked her a while ago and she was very gracious and allowed us to have it there!

Since the girls were about 6 months old I started thinking about their party. (I know, silly) Let me start off by saying I was a rush director in college. I LOVE planning a party...most of the time. Anyways from the beginning wanted to do a candy bar or sweet type thing. Thus was born the "sugar and spice" theme(green and LOTS of pink). I have two girls and it had to be girlie! I looked all over the internet for inspiration and ideas. Let me tell you there is a lot out there! I got a lot of inspiration and ideas from The Creative party place. Seriously check her out if you are planning a party!!!!


On with the Show!

Welcoming the guests!



The Table!





The beautiful cupcakes my cousin made! (they tasted amazing too!!)

I have to brag on MIMI for a minute! (my mom) In all my years of planning rushes, my wedding, and graduation parties, My mom is ALWAYS up to the challenge and is always willing to help create any crazy idea I have. She even made this SUPER cute ginger bread house to sit at the candy bar!


Isn't it super cute! It was perfect for the "sweet shop"

What is a Candy bar with out Lollipops?!?
I got this idea from a another party I saw on The Creative Party place!
I had never made suckers before and it was not a easy thing!

There was lots of different candies! It was nice having Valentine's Day Candy out already!








I thought these turned out pretty cute! If you have never seen Bakerilla, you should! They were pretty easy to make.


I found this super cute frame...I could not pass it up. How perfect!


Our favors were toothbrushes and of course...CANDY!
When people first walked in the door, they found...

and a book, showing K&M through the months...
The "sweet" Birthday banner

What's a pink girlie party without PINK lemonade!

For the chocolate lover a little chocolate fondue!


Just in case you have not died from sugar yet...don't forget the COTTON CANDY!


Well I hope you feel like you were at the party! I mean how could you not with all those pictures?!? MUCH THANKS TO MY AWESOME COUSIN KIM FOR LETTING US USE HER HOUSE! Love you!

Come back to see part 2!

It was a FABULOUS party and absolutely perfect. I loved the toothbrush party favors. I've told everyone how creative that was. I may have to steal your idea for Amiya's "sweet 16."

Oh my goodness.....uhh I’m speechless and that does not happen very often! You did such a great job!!! I LOVE the candy bar uh well I pretty much love everything. I’m an adult and I would flip over a party like that. Love the tooth brushes on the candy bar……cute idea.

Thanks for sharing and I’ll be looking forward to part 2!
Ps..Thanks so much for your kind comment.

Holly said...

OMG! What an amazing party! You are so creative and I totally love the theme. I don't think you're nuts about thinking of the party at 6 months. I've already thought of what I could do for a boy/girl party and K & K are only 8 weeks. Happy Birthday to your sweet girls! You're such an awesome mom!

Jenni said...

"Sweet" party! That was A LOT of colorful candy. I love it, but I have to say my favorite part was the vase of toothbrushes!

ReenaBeena said...

Wow the details are amazin for this party I already had cupcake pops on the list and the tree with the candy I got that from a baby shower. My daughters name is bellaMarie and since I'm a major crafter and make tutus and childrens clothes I will give those as favors or fairy wings. And maybe a green and pink theme party. She likes green

Christina said...

Loved the first birthday! I can't wait to use some of your great ideas. I was wondering if you remembered where you purchased the cute toothbrushes. I can't find them anywhere. Thanks

Elizabeth said...

Hi, Thanks for the sweet comment. I actually got the toothbrushes at the Dollar store...Dollar tree. Hope that helps!

xoxo Daya said...
