Corner Store Themed Party

By: Amy Atlas, in Featured Submissions, Kids

We’re loving this clever “Corner Store” themed party that Kendra Plastow created for her nephew Oliver’s first birthday. The birthday boy loves to spray water on vegetables and fruit with a spray bottle so Kendra came up with the corner store/market theme. Kendra cleverly tied in the theme “we’re there for you at every corner” throughout the party signage. Kendra named the 2013-established mock store “The Happy Bluebird” since Oliver’s family calls him blue bird. …

Queen of Hearts Guest Dessert Feature

We’re loving this dessert table sent to us by Monaliz of Bella Sweets. The dessert table was for Monaliz’ very own baby shower and was inspired by the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. It is a refreshing take on what we normally see with Alice in Wonderland parties because she focused on one element in the story and because of the red, pink, black and white color palette. Sweets treats included red velvet…
