I cant tell you how many times I have heard the words " You are such a Martha Stewart" (haha) I just love crafting, diy, painting, sewing, and home decorating. It gives me great satisfaction to look around my house and say " I MADE THAT!"

Little Miss Tea Party

   Two weeks ago I had a tea party for Abby and her friends. Abby's birthday is at the beginning of December. It is so hard to get something together at that time of year, and I wanted her to have a special day!(Anyone else have a birthday in Dec? What did your parents do for you?) Here are some photos of her special day!

  I made her invitations on Picmonkey.com and printed them on 4x6 photo paper at home. I think they turned out so cute! I really LOVE using Pic Monkey's editing tools, and it is free!

   One thing I really wanted at her party is a photo booth. Our backdoor has a little entry area that has great natural lighting. A few days before the party I took these pictures to test out the lighting at that time of day. They turned out so adorable I had to post a few! :D

  I took the same idea from Cole's party, and used Abby's room decor on my diy cafe shelves. She got so excited to wake up and see all of her special things on display! I really think kids love the little details that make them feel extra special. :D

   I also made a few tissue pom poms from dollar store tissue paper! I think it is a BIG impact for only $2 dollars! Have you guys tried these yet? I found a tutorial from Martha Stewart.

 Sadly I didn't get a picture of my pretty table before everyone started eating. :D I was kind of running a little behind!

Here are a few pictures from the party of Abby and her friends! Do you love my back door photobooth idea! ha ha (Yes I did paint my door PINK just for the party!) ;)
   Here is Miss Isabella you might remember me making her gift set HERE. Can you believe She is turning one this weekend! She is such a sweetie!
   Here is sweet Alyssa and her Mommy. Alyssa's gift set last year is still one of my most popular posts! :D You can see it HERE!
  Here are all the "BIG girls" at the party! They all looked so adorable and we had such a great time!
    I had so much fun making this day special for my little girl and her friends! I am working on a few DIY project and tutorials to share with you soon!
