Planning Eleanor’s Second Birthday Party

I designed the invitations this weekend. We’re just having our family over, so no need to include the address (I’m pretty sure they know how to find us).

I want to make a rainbow cake for her. Last year, I ordered a chocolate cake from the local bakery. It tasted fine, but it was kind of expensive for a plain cake and I didn’t like the way they frosted it (I decorated the top myself with a chocolate silhouette). I remember thinking that I should have just made the whole thing myself, so this year I’m going to give it a try.

I’m thinking balloons and polka dots, in lots of bright colors for the decorations. I’m sure the party will come together, but I hope I’m not being overly ambitious with the cake.

Honor Roll

Mr. Humperdink's Birthday Party
Sometimes I come across something so cute/sweet/charming/funny/pretty/inspiring/lovely that I just want to share it with you.  These are the things that have made my  honor roll.


I also write for Babble’s Family Style blog. Here’s what I’ve been sharing there…

Dexter Outdoor Bench

Are you kidding me with this? It’s beautiful! I want it for the living room! It’s hard to imagine indoors, seeing it styled for an outdoor shoot, but take a look at the plain photo of it.

Perfect, right? I’m not so into the distressed “driftwood” finish for indoors, but it would be awesome painted in a bold color.
