When a friend of mine told me she was pregnant with her first baby I was so excited! Excitement turned into shock when she informed me that they were not finding out the sex of the baby. She is one of my fellow event planning friends and by nature we hate surprises and must know everything in advance!! I admire her for waiting, it’s the ultimate surprise! I wanted to find her some unique onesies there are some really clever ones out there, but of course it’s a little harder to find some gender neutral ones. After a quick onesie search the thought that has been popping up in my head more and more lately returned “I could totally makes those!” So I gathered my supplies and decided to give it a shot. What do you have to lose? They don’t have to be perfect since the baby will mostly be wearing it for about an hour before needing a change.
What you will need:
- Plain Onesies I used six month Gerber white onesies
- Non Toxic fabric paint (which I think is all fabric paint, because really why would fabric paint be toxic??)
- Piece of cardboard
Or add a little gender neutral colors instead of just black. What do you think, would you consider giving a personalized onesie?

I found this adorable first birthday DIY photo booth on Oh Happy Day that I couldn’t resist sharing. It seems like photo booths are popping up at weddings all over, but why should we get all the fun?! It’s a great idea for little kids. The cuteness of this idea is almost too much to take!
You only need a few materials: 36 inch balloon, helium, yarn, basket, blue paper, scissors and tape. You can find excellent step by step instructions here.
I love the little details that are incorporated with this DIY, making it an oh so special DIY.
Lately I have been loving kids birthday party ideas. I don’t have any kids of my own yet so when my friend who is throwing her little girls first birthday party came to me for some ideas I couldn’t be more excited to help. The theme is cupcakes, what is cuter then that for a little girl?
An easy way to decorate for a kid’s birthday party are with banners and table decor. I love the cupcake themed paper decorations from Get The Party Started. The Etsy shop will also work with you to customize your order, so if the colors aren’t exactly right you can change them!
Another cute way to dress up the party is to have the party guests dress up. Now I know that party hats seem out dated but I can’t imagine anything cuter then a bunch of little girls dressed in the adorable party hats from Booptey Lu’s.
Of course anyone that knows me is aware of my lantern and pompom infatuation. I couldn’t resist when I spotted this cupcake themed party from Ander Ruff. They did a cute make your own cupcake party theme complete with personalized bottles of milk for the end.
Last but not least my favorite party decoration. Balloons, of course! They are an inexpensive way to make a big statement, and is a must have at a first birthday party. Check out this adorable picture from Kara’s Party Ideas.
It’s always a pleasure going to a fellow meeting planner’s party. All day at work we are so restricted with our ideas planning other people’s events that I love seeing what my friends do with no restrictions and putting their own creative touch on the event. This weekend I went to a co-worker turned friend’s baby shower. Our friend Amy hosted the Beatrix Potter themed baby bash. Amy had all her childhood Beatrix Potter books out, which made the decorations even more special. Take a look at all her cute decorations below!
There was a ton of good food, and the cute pompoms Amy made from a previous post, they turned out awesome!
I couldn’t get enough of the cute books, bunnies and birds!
How much fun are these!
Orange is the perfect way to chase away the winter blues. This would be so cute for kids birthday party. They could also double as prizes for game winners.
I love blue, so I could not resist posting this fun centerpiece. It looks like it came straight out of a Dr. Seuss book!
