I Toadally Love You!!

I know it's a bit late to be posting our Valentine's Day festivities, but February is a busy month at our house! Here's a little run-down of our froggy fun: 
This year my theme was "I Toadally Love You", so of course the day was filled with all things froggy! Here's a look at a few of the things we did!

First, I printed out this "I Toadally Love You" banner to hang on the window:

 Then, I went through my spring decorations and pulled out my frogs, toadstools, and a tree disk. I have tons of grass around my house, so that made the perfect "swamp" set up.  I set these up on the table and used it for my backdrop throughout the day.

For breakfast we had hot chocolate with chocolate frog stir sticks, and frog pancakes. Yes, those are supposed to be frogs. :)

I found some stuffed frogs and frog paddle toys at the dollar store. I'll buy anything for a buck. Obviously.

Then, while the kiddos were at school, I got started on some more frog fun.

 Green kiwi-strawberry punch with matching adorable tags, of course.

Chocolate frogs and cute wrapped mini chocolate bars.

Chocolate frogs on green mint dipped Oreos (lily pads).

Frog cake pops. Yeah, those are frogs.

After school snack. Loved those little guys.

We also had froggy fajitas for dinner which I forgot to get pictures of. I did get a picture of our frogs eyes: deviled eggs. Followed by mint chocolate chip ice cream, and froggy cupcakes. Those were so much cuter in my head. 
It turned out to be a fabulous Valentine's Day, and my kids loved all the froggy love. I love that I pulled this off without spending hardly any money. It just takes a little time and creativity to make your kids feel special, right?

Hope you all had a great Valentine's Day too!
I can't wait for next year, I have most of it already planned in my head!

Baby Shower Feature

Last week's baby shower turned out super cute! Here are a few pics of our party...
 I absolutely LOVE these old windows that I used on the fireplace display. I also took a bunch of pictures of Tatum before the party to display around the party. She's such a doll!

The dessert table was covered in a matching shabby quilt, and I used a birdcage and my 2 pink cake stands as the center. 
I used some extra fabric to sew a couple of simple curtains and rosettes for the backdrop.

In my kitchen I set up a note writing station for guests to write notes to Mama and Baby:

I used some pretty matching scrapbook paper on 8 inch squares of hardboard with her name on it. I cut cute scalloped squares of matching paper to write our notes on. Next to that, I had a big picture of Tatum next to our favor boxes:
 Then we had our punch station. I used some small jars wrapped in matching fabric, and jute cord. Then I attached a monogram tag to each one. LOVE how these turned out! Also love the adorable pink striped straws we used. Aren't jars just the cutest?!

 I made cake pops that I tied a ribbon to with more sweet pictures of Tatum--too stinkin' cute!

 Here's a look at some of the deliciousness...

 I also made some cupcake toppers with pictures of little Tatum, although I completely forgot to get some pictures of them in the cupcakes. Use your imagination, they were really cute!

And here's some random pics...

 The lovely Heidi...

And here's Me with Proud Mama, let's pretend this picture is a little more flattering shall we?
 Thank you ladies. Big hug.
