Cinco de Mayo
Cinco de Mayo is almost here and I'm not gonna lie, we Texans have got this covered. My one piece of advice for your Cinco de Mayo fiesta: use color; LOTS of color. Oh and salsa...and queso...and maybe I have more than one piece of advice after all...Martha has several great party decor ideas as usual. I especially love the set up below and there is a tutorial for the decor on her website.In fact last year The TomKat Studio was inspired by this party to design Cinco de Mayo printables and they are free to download on her website. I am so wishing I had [...]
Royal Wedding
Did you watch it? I said I wasn't going to wake up and watch it live but I am so glad I did. I felt like I was watching a real live fairytale. It really was magical. Can't explain it. Sigh. ...though it may have been the fact that I watched it with 25 high school girls. My sister had a graduation/Royal Wedding watching party (pictures to come) and needless to say...I didn't get much sleep last night. You should have heard the screams when the princes arrived. ;)Did you love her dress? She looked timeless or as my mother [...]

If you haven't heard of "gender reveal" parties yet, allow me to enlighten you. Gender reveal parties are the newest trend designed to reveal the gender of a baby to the guests (and often the parents) in a party setting. When parents go in for the ultra sound, they ask their nurse to put the gender of the baby in a sealed envelope. The parents then give the envelope to a bakery which makes a cake dyed in pink or blue and covers it in frosting to hide the color. At the party the parents cut into the cake revealing the gender of the [...]
Corey and Ann Catherine Easterling
Corey and Ann Catherine wed on a very special day...my birthday! In fact, not only was it my birthday, it was the mother of the groom, Becky Easterling's birthday AND during the reception Mr. Easterling received a call that their daughter had delivered a baby girl! This wedding was certainly a day of celebration! The couple met while attending 'Ole Miss and was sure to have the football game on every television possible at their reception! Their ceremony took place at Christ the King Catholic Church and the reception at Brook Hollow Golf Club. Please enjoy these photos courtesy of [...]
