The Glama Pajama & Pancake Party!

I had the great pleasure of doing my 2nd party for this family on Saturday. Grace, her husband, Steve, and their sweet daughter, Ella, are about the nicest people you could hope to meet. I just love working with Grace! She's fun and creative and brings great ideas to the table. For example, I had already done a "Glama Pajama Party" with the bed table. But instead of having 15 girls sleep over, she thought it'd be fun to do a pajama and pancake theme during the day and have the kids come in their PJ's! Such a great idea! So we merged the two ideas and it became one super fun Pajama's & Pancake party.

The table was much longer than how I did it in the past. I love how it looks adding an extra table. It ended up being 15 ft long! I had to take TWO pics to be able to show you the whole thing!
To set the mood, we had happy little signs up everywhere with morning-type phrases.
My fav was this awesome mirror decal Grace found. (Will find out where she got it and post later!)
Isn't that perfect?
In the kitchen, we set up a breakfast buffet.
 Pancakes: The main attraction.
Adorable "eggs and sausage" treats made by Grace.
 The fixin's bar had lots of fun toppings for our pancakes. 
One fun breakfast.
 Next, it was time to get crafty. I sewed ribbon on some plain white pillow cases and gave the girls fabric markers and stencils. They turned out really cute.
In the family room we set up a large vanity for hair and make-up. 
Braiding is the hottest new thing, so the girls got to choose one of nine braided looks. Jasmine - of Jazzy Style To Go - did an amazing job! They all looked so glam! Wish I had taken more pics of the hairstyles to show you!
Here are a few more misc party pics...
 Milk served in my favorite milk bottles with paper straws.
Adorable " glam shoe" cupcakes by Kelly Ott of Cannon Classic Cupcakes & Cakes
Gift bags
Place setting
And last - but not least - I leave you with these gorgeous smiling faces...

Thank you, Grace and family for letting me be a part of your special day!

I HEART MY CUSTOMERS: Double The Sweetness Pink Ombre Party

When a lovely FB friend told me she was doing a pink ombre party for her twins, I was super excited to help! Talented mom, April, did an amazing job with this party! No detail was left undone and the pinkness of it all is just PERFECT! I made the bunting (name banners), cake bunting, cupcake toppers (used on the sugar-dipped marshmallows), and the buffet cards. But the design and delicious sweets were all April's doing! Just LOVE this sweets table... and did I mention that cake? Take a closer look!
LOVE the ruffle cake!
Buffet cards
And Double the Sweetness picks for the sweetest twin girls!

A beautiful job, April! Thanks so much for sharing your pics with us!
