Sweet Little Sock Monkey…

Happy New Year! I just came back from a great two week + vacation and I am hoping you all had the happiest of holiday celebrations and wishing you all a joyous new year! We have been quiet the past few weeks as we have been keeping extremely busy styling a few parties and of course hosting some  holiday celebrations! I am over the moon that I am finally able to share with you this adorable party I had been working on some adorable paper goods for. Sweet little Sebastian was turning one and his mommy is so creative! The theme was sock monkey; a theme I have always loved after seeing this adorable nursery, I always knew that if I ever had a little boy, this definitely would be a contender for nursery themes as I love everything vintage!

Sebastiam’s mommy went all out for this sweet little boy. No detail went untouched and everything tied in together so seamlessly!  I was so honored to be able to provide her with all her printable needs from invitations, to candy station tags, to banners, to 12 month cutouts,  water bottle labels,  centerpiece assembled cutouts and the list goes on and on! Look how gorgeous this sweet and special little boy’s party came out! He is definitely blessed to have an amazing mommy!

A beautiful party inspired by our Sock Monkey Collection now listed on our Etsy Shop! Check it out when you get a chance!

Mickey’s Not So Scary cont…

What a great vacation we had in Disney this past weekend. We all came together as a big family, party of 20, to celebrate my sweet niece’s birthday party. She had a blast, and it’s definitely a trip we will all remember :). I couln’t help but to swoon over all the Fall/Halloween decor that is up at Magic Kingdom. Although Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween party was not going on this past weekend due to the Night of Joy event, the park was completely decorated in the their Halloween/Fall decor:

I love it so much, I wish I could back to Sophia’s birthday party last year, mentioned on my previous post, to get more ideas to share with her excellent party stylist who did a phenominal job decorating:

This has inspired me to get to work on the remaining items of our Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Inspired line. We already have our custom invites listed on our Etsy shop, but I am wrapping up on the remainder of the matching paper goods. Here is a sneak peak of the party circles template that will be available shortly. We will be offering these items as DIY (do-it-yourself) or already assembled. I can’t wait to complete and share this cuteness with you!

Hope you enjoyed the previews! Until then.. Stay Chic! Xo, Nic

M-I-C-K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E…

I am soo excited because in a little less than a week I will be at my FAVORITE place, Disney! yay! Our huge family is headed out there for a few days for my 1st little princess’ birthday, my niece Gaby. We all have been counting down the days for weeks now, and she is beyond excited to be able to celebrate it the way she wanted! We are truly blessed to have such a sweet little girl in our lives and that we have such easy access to the places that make her heart skip a beat. We couldn’t be going at a more perfect time either, as its time for me to get some additional inspiration for another party I am working on! A good friend of mine’s son will be turning one! Sweet little ACE, his name, loves him some Mickey so mommy & daddy decided that Mickey’s Mouse Clubhouse would be a perfect theme!  Now as much as the Disney characters are what make this show it’s show, i.e. Mickey, Minnie, etc., we cannot forget what a huge role Mickey’s clubhouse plays as well. So I have decided to concentrate the decor on what make’s this clubhouse come together and what makes Mickey him, his parts!!!  I will be incorporating his head, shorts, shoe and gloves for a magical touch. I will be looking to do the same with the other characters in this show but on how I will, I will keep that a secret for now :X.  Check out this adorable Mickey Mouse Clubhouse cake from Thecupcakelicious! It’s exactly what I envisioned this party will be!

I cannot wait to December, it cannot come soon enough! Check out some sneak peeks of the paper goods we are working on for this magical party:

Our Mickey Magical parts line will be posted shortly to our Etsy shop! I cannot wait to style this party, M-I-C-K-E-Y  M-O-U-S-E is so special to my heart!

Until then..stay chic!

Anchor’s Away pt. 2 …

Our sweet cousin Austin’s birthday was this past weekend. The weather held up thankfully! Even though there was a 70% chance of rain, it rained in all the surrounding areas, but not at sweet Austin’s house! He had a blast and everyone fell in love with our Nautical themed candy station we styled for him. It was the perfect combination of fun and delicious treats for a hot but refreshing pool party celebration. I am so grateful to have been part of such a big party and a big celebration, Austin is officially a teenager :). Happy Birthday Austin..we love you!

Check out the rest of our Anchor’s Away Nautical DIY package that is now available on our Etsy shop. Although summer is almost over, I cannot wait to style more parties with this theme. It was a blast!

Ice Cream Social…

This has got to be one of the hottest summers of all time! Every time I turn on the news there will be “record-breaking” heat, not only here in South FL, but all over the nation.  I don’t know how much more of this heat any of us can take! There are definitely a few ways to keep cool. Water activities are great and fun, but please make sure to load up on your sun block! Ice cream is another great idea, not only is it delicious but it’s so refreshing too! Check out this amazing ice cream toppings lazy susan, isn’t it just adorable? And it’s definitely perfect for any of your ice cream socials!

A sweet friend of mine will be hosting an Ice Cream party this weekend, and in honor of it, she has asked me to design some matching paper goods for her. The colors of the party will be very summery: hot pink, orange, lime and aqua. Such yummy flavors for such a yummy theme! Here is a little sneak peek:

I will definitely be posting some pictures of her party once it’s all complete. As always, I am positive it’s going to be amazing as she outdoes herself every time! I also cannot wait to share the rest of our line with you, it will be posted to our Etsy shop shortly! Hope you enjoyed these previews. Until then…stay chic!

Just keep swimming pt. 2…

My nephew’s Finding Nemo party yesterday was a hit. Even with the sun AND clouds, Anthony had a great time finding Nemo. His utter excitement when he saw the candy station we styled for him, was priceless. I am so honored to  be able to have shared that special day with him and to have styled a party for him that is so close to his little heart. Since the theme was Finding Nemo, everything had to be orange and blue and fortunately we were able to incorporate some of his favorite sweets using those colors: gumballs, pixie sticks, reeses, crunch, dipped pretzel sticks, rock candy, marshmallow pops, nemo gummy fish, cupcakes, gold fish, cake balls, and cookies. We also added some extra personalized decor by using our Nemo Inspired DIY printables (cupcake toppers, a triangle party banner, candy station tags, and candy station decor signs). Check out some previews of his party, and make sure to check out the adorable cookies his momma made him using  store bought sugar cookies, blue frosting, orange sprinkles, and goldfish! Not only were they adorable, but they were delish too!

Our Nemo DIY Printable Party package is now available on our Etsy shop. Check it out! Until then.. stay chic!

This one is for the boys….

Back to school is just right around the corner, and it’s crunch time for school supplies shopping! Seems like the list is never ending, and the kids always want backpacks and lunch boxes of their favorite characters! Being the mommy to a sweet little princess definitely makes it easy when it comes to shopping. There are endless adorable items for little girls in ALL categories, clothes, shoes, and the list goes on and on! But for boys, I notice a trend that it’s not as easy to find cute and personalized items that are not too girly. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I came across this backpack on PBK‘s website!

I absolutely love POTTERY BARN KIDS. Sophia’s entire baby nursery was from there, and so are some of the items in what is now her BIG GIRL room. So naturally, I went to their site when searching for a nice and durable backpack I can personalize for her for school. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this Batman backpack. It is just perfect for the boys! Especially since it seems like every weekend there is a new superheroes or comic book movie out in theaters and new Batman movie installment is int he works! The movie/comic Batman is a legacy, and I know that it is one that will be very popular with boys for many decades to come!

Our Superheroes DIY collection is inspired by all those little boys who dream of being a superhero.
Are you planning a Superheroes party for your little prince? If so, check out our DIY package now available in our Etsy shop.

Enjoy! Until then.. stay chic!
