I’m SO excited for tomorrow!  today is full..and you can probably find me in full party mode + running like a chicken with me head cut off! my parents and brother will be in town this weekend- the first birthday party they have ever attended for one of my kids, so thats a new milestone for all of us and I’m excited to have them here!  
here are a few ..err five favorites for this summer birthday party!

one. pearl + jane

ya’ll.  I don’t know what I would do without this gal. Amy and I have been working together for the last couple years and I can’t express my gratitude towards her creative brain when it comes to making these parties come to life!  I pretty much come up with an idea, throw a few things out there (theme + color, etc.) and she does the rest.  I literally have no idea what the decor is going to look like until it hits my doorstep! opening her big box of goodies is actually like Christmas morning anticipation.  and she never ever disappoints!
you can see some of our other parties together at Baker’s summer strawberry themed first birthday
and Parker + Jolie’s milk + cookies themed third birthday, and paint party party fourth birthday!!
stay tuned for a fun giveaway soon:)

YOU GUYS.  I’ve been following Veronica for over four years on social media, back when she was making amazing cakes for a living and since then she’s created a huge impression on the small shop world with her sparkle bows and poolside wraps!  we have about a billion to our name, and when I asked V to make Baker and the twins some special head wraps for the party she suggested all our little friends get one as well!  yaas!  she was gracious and even sending me pictures of fabric options for the perfect wrap for the party. I about fell over when her package came along with these ADORable gift boxes for each little gal at the party. Veronica is literally among my most favorite people on the planet and I am so thankful for her!

three. custom invitations

for all things party, Sarah of CKFireboots delivers! we’ve worked together since the twins first birthday and have gotten to the point of me sharing ideas and a little bit of inspo and she takes off and creates the most amazing party invites and printables!  I usually have her print my invitations for me, but when it comes to food tents and prints I take the digital file and have them printed at Office Max or some place similar. Baker’s party invitation this year is MY FAVORITE EVER.

four.  lovey lake 

lets talk about how sweet this little peplum top and bloomers from lovey lake!!  when I saw them on her instagram I immediately HAD to have them for the celebration! flamingo everything!
ALSO- this little hair bow from pemberley handmade is the perfect to match:)
..always with the baby dolls!  her BB got her a new baby for her birthday and it hasn’t left her arms since!

five. BBQ food = the best food!
we’re sticking to the basics for Baker’s BBQ bash and making hamburgs and hot dogs on the grills.. a  variety of chips and a couple of yummy side dishes to round out the meal!  this caesar pasta salad recipe looks phenom, and if you know me you know I love a good caesar salad!  we will also have a couple options for chip dipping’ with a Mexican street corn salad and the easy peasy homemade salsa.
OF COURSE there will be cake and cookies for dessert and maybe a special appearance for a frozen treat!

SO excited to celebrate miss Baker tomorrow.  after the chaos of life these last several weeks we need some fun.  I appreciate everyone’s support, love, and prayer regarding Jolie and while there isn’t a ton of new information I plan to share a little update next week:)
happy friday!
