I had planned to share the party in its entirety this week, but due to the not so big snow storm that shut down Charlotte, and the crazy busy week with kids home from preschool, that didn’t happen.

However, here’s a sneak peek at some of my favorite images!

Turning 2 Tutu and Bow Tie Tea Party Inspiration

As an event and party planner and designer I’m always planning the next event or party months, even a year in advance. This Turning 2 Tutu and Bow Tie Tea Party is no exception!

Put on your tutus & bow ties and come for tea, while we dance and twirl with the birthday girl!

Turning 2 Tutu & Bow Tie Tea Party

I’ve been planning my daughter Charlotte’s Turning 2 Tutu and Bow Tie Tea Party before she even turned 1.

I had initially planned on just a tutu & tea party, but the party evolved to include boys. These sweet bow tie and pearl tutu invitations by The Polka Dotted Room are the perfect fit for the party!

I’m going a little glam with the gold and pink and love this cake bunting by Confetti Creations.

I’ve been eyeing tepees for sometime for her big girl room makeover. Her room is coral and robin’s egg blue, but adding this coral and gold polka dot teepee adds dimension with the different colors and some glam!

I’m looking forward to showing you all the fun details in a few weeks!

Get the full source list below.

Elmo Themed 2nd Birthday Party


Like most toddlers, my daughter Sofia runs around all day saying Elmo and just can’t get enough of this Sesame Street character!  Thus, Sofia’s World was created, modeled after Elmo’s World.

An Elmo themed party was the perfect fit with Sofia’s love of water activities to celebrate her 2nd birthday in style! We set up her water table, beach ball sprinkler, bubbles, and water guns to make a splash in Sofia’s World!

To make the party more girly I used red and turquoise with pops of white.  This Elmo party inspired me: http://www.karaspartyideas.com/2011/11/red-and-turquoise-elmo-party.html

Since we hosted the party on Labor Day, we had our local favorite BBQ from Mac’s, with kid friendly sides of mac and cheese, veggies, and baked beans.  Continuing with the picnic theme I used red and white checkered tablecloths for the adult and kids table found at Hobby Lobby.

I wanted Sofia to be a part of this creative party and had her paint the red and turquoise Sofia’s World sign for the food table.  She also added her touch to the chalk board outside that greeted friends as they entered the water activity station.

One of Sofia’s favorites, homemade chocolate chip and oatmeal cookie ice cream sandwiches, are always a hit with kids and adults!  You can find the recipe from my older post: http://wp.me/p1s2CI-4I Don’t forget Dorothy the goldfish, or in this case several goldfish severed in a fishbowl at the food table.

Of course there was a signature drink!  Since it was a kids party raspberry and regular lemonade was severed in mini blue mason jars with turquoise striped straws.
