Sprinkled with Love // 1st Birthday Party

The Bachelorette alum DeAnna Pappas Stagliano and husband Stephen Stagliano celebrated their daughter Addison Marie‘s first birthday at their L.A.-based home and I was given the honor to create decor for the event! The afternoon soirée boasted a color scheme of bright pink, lime green, yellow, turquoise and metallic gold. The gals from Good Carma Studio  helped host the posh event. Guest enjoyed several fun activities, including Munchkin eating/drinking/playing stations, a confetti balloon bar, neon rice sensory station, custom crowns, a photo booth and custom chalkboard signage. Our goal was to transform the space into a fun and playful environment for the little ones!

  • Clear Balloons

Dream Catcher Craft Night

What do you and your girls do for a night out?? My friends and I usually have a text chain of about 30 texts back and forth about where, when, and how we can spend some quality girl time together. Well, what about this idea. . . ditch the typical dinner and drinks routine and plan a craft night!! We spent a few hours creating, chatting, and laughing while we made dream catchers for our homes and kids rooms!!

It's easy. Gather some fabric, yarn, feathers, and metal hoops. Hey, you could even make it a crafting pot luck where each person brings one supply needed to create the project?? 

We created a milk + cookies bar to snack on!! Everyone brought a treat and using glass milk bottles, we served a variety of milks.  Not pictured, a few bottles of wine!! 

What are you going to make at your next GNO?? Post pics with the hashtag #makeradstuff
