And now…the twist..



There is so much to celebrate in life-the arrival of a sweet baby is a dream come true for so many of us. Nothing is more spectacular than the stork dropping a baby on your doorstep;) Magical.

For some Mamas-to-Be though, the anticipation of baby day can be bittersweet if Daddy happens to be deployed. Our military families sacrifice so much for all of us and that sometimes that means having that precious baby without your spouse by your side. This is reality for so many military families.
Enter the beautiful and noble Operation Shower~This extraordinary non-profit strives to honor and show love to military families by hosting one of a kind + absolutely amazing baby showers for these awe inspiring families.
Their mission is to provide a joyful celebration for expecting Moms to ease the stress of deployment. Their main goal is to bring happiness to families for the sake of kindness and goodness. Nothing expected in return-just spreading the sparkle for the sake of goodness and appreciation. Noble indeed.


Honored and thrilled to announce that our glittery, global Party Bus will be making a very special stop, at a very special station. We will be making a $444 donation to Operation Shower on behalf of all the passengers on this Party Bus. We are amazed by your work. Beyond supportive of your noble cause. The very least we can do is gift some dazzle and diaper money your way:)


 And to all the military families out there-we thank your for your service, bravery and sacrifice.


Good luck. Do good things whenever you can. And remember that glitter makes everything cuter;)

There is nothing like the bright colors and happy prints of Lilly Pulitzer to make every day feel like a party!  For my daughter’s 12th birthday party, she wanted to decorate cakes~ Lilly-style!  So, in order to decide how to mesh the two, I kept thinking “if Lilly had a cake shop instead of a juice stand”… I have to admit, this was one fun party to plan!  It is a blast to see where ideas go in the hands of a TWEEN!  Enjoy and remember, “…being happy never goes out of style!”. 


Oh, my- what a tea party!  With so many unique and cute details, you will love seeing this darling party by The Sweetest Affair!  Mom Aaliyah planned this sweet affair for her own daughter London- and hosted a tea party with whimsical flair.  With a candy-covered tea pot, a funny spout of tea (made from Sixlets candy) shooting from teapot to tea cup, and a precious book on two-year old etiquette, this party was fit for a Birthday Queen!


Celebrating your birthday with a Mexican Fiesta is a sure way to have a great time!  My daughter and several of her friends had a ball with all of the bright colors and (hopefully) vivid memories of a beautiful party day full of fun!  Planning all of the party ideas and details was loads of fun- although we don’t claim to have everything authentically perfect- this is our take on a party that combines Mexican birthday party ideas with a young girl’s likes and wishes!  For instance, we know hedgehogs don’t hail from Mexico- but when she fell in love with a festive-looking hedgehog at a local shop, we decided the hedgehog would make a perfectly fun party favor!  So read on and enjoy- and hopefully you will find an idea or two that you can use for a Mexican-themed party or even a Cinco de Mayo celebration, too- and inspiration to incorporate ideas that make your party perfectly-suited for the birthday child!
