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!

Touchdown…

Can you believe it? Football season is already here. And as always, my husband is going crazy with excitement. I am not a huge football fan myself, but I do know that here in florida football runs deep in everyone’s blood. I just had the sweetest request via our Etsy shop. A customer of ours is hosting a cheerleader inspired party for her sweet daughter Kendall. She wanted to use our Team Spirit Cheerleader party package but wanted to customize it so that it represents Kendall’s favorite team, the University of Florida Gators. Although my husband probably won’t be too happy with me with this post as he is an avid University of Miami fan, GO CANES! ;), I definitely couldn’t say no! What a splendid idea!  I cannot wait to see how she will use our paper goods to incorporate Kendall’s love for cheerleading and the University of Florida. Are you hosting a tailgate and/or football inspired party? If so checkout this amazing University of Florida Cookie Basket from Cookies by Design:

It looks soo delicious!  We just listed our UF Cheerleader inspired paper goods package on our Etsy shop! Check it out when you can. Until then… here is a sneak peek!

Enjoy!

Stay Chic,

Milk & Cookies..

My sweet friend Lilly is hosting a Milk and Cookies themed baby shower this weekend, and I must say I am so excited she asked me to design some paper goods for her, especially since a while back I had come across this gorgeous MILKaholic Sip & See party posted on the Hostess with the Mostess, designed by Halfbaked. A sip & see party is a great way to celebrate a newly adopted angel into the family. It’s where family and friends gather to exchange gifts, thoughts, and well wishes for the new addition to the family. Using MILK as the party inspiration is such an amazingly clever idea! I love every detail of this party, from the milk bottles to the yummy sweets, to the cow print.

I cannot wait to see the finalized Milk & Cookies party Lilly is designing. I am sure it will be beyond stunning. Best wishes to the new parents to be! What a blessing it is to be new parents! In the meantime, here is a preview of some of the tent cards we designed. Stay tuned, our full MILK & COOKIES line will be available shortly in our Etsy shop.

Hope you enjoyed! 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!

Fall Harvest…

We all know how much I love the fall, I have so many exciting decor ideas for my most favorite holidays. I feel like my mind is constantly running, and yes I think I now suffer from insomnia because of it. ha!

Of course you already know how much I love Thanksgiving decor; its mix of rich fall colors such as browns, oranges, and auburns. And I think I appreciate this style of decor that much more because we don’t have an actual fall season down here… our leaves don’t change colors and our wind rarely blows :(.

Let’s also not forget how special Thanksgiving really is; there are so many fun activities to do with your kids and what a big part of history to celebrate! I am so blessed to be able to teach my daughter its history and we are certainly blessed to be here and to be thankful. When I started working on my Fall Harvest line I knew I had to find inspiration from one of the design gods, Amy Atlas. And as always, she styled the most gorgeous and delicious Fall themed sweets buffet:

It really is extraordinary, beyond creative, and is perfect for adults and kids alike!!!

I am very much looking forward to Thanksgiving this year. Not only to be able to style it for my family, and not only because of the amazing food, but for the amazing family I am so blessed to share it with! Will you be hosting Thanksgiving at your place this year? If so, check out these sneak peeks of our Fall Harvest line that will be available in our Etsy shop soon!

Happy Styling! Until then.. stay chic!

French Fashion House cont…

It must be French fashion week around here, anything and everything I came across is French inspired, and I must admit that I am loving every minute of it. This post will be short and sweet as my poor little Sophie is sick so I need to run back to tend to her :(. In the process of browsing around for some additional inspiration for my Mother-In-Law’s French Fashion House party I am working on, I came across this amazing Chanel collection cookies by A Dozen Eggs Bake Shoppe. They really are to die for, and let’s not forget to mention how delish they look!!  I know I said I would keep any additional previews for this party to a minimum because I would love to share with you the final product as a whole, but I simply cannot contain myself!

What do you think? Aren’t they the epitome of what our party will be about? Chanel, Black, White, with a touch of Pink! I am counting down the days to this party, not only because I am styling it, but also because it’s so close to my heart.

Hope you enjoyed this preview! Until then… stay chic!

Xo, Nic
