easy diy baby moccasins | confetti sunshineSo, I’ve been keeping a secret from you! I have been busy with something other than a party. Oh the shame!

jk.

What I’ve actually been doing is working on these adorable easy DIY Baby Moccasins! They are one piece (minus an extra piece as an insole), easily hand stitched with no sewing machine involved. Can’t get much easier! Be sure to click below to see all the instructions. Doesn’t little miss schmutz looks like she enjoys them too? (And, can you believe she is almost 9 months! Stop growing child!)

Bow Ties & Hair Bows Twin Baby Shower

Hair Bows and Bow Tie baby shower! Perfect for a boy and girl twin.Do you have a lot of pregnant friends? It always seems to go in herds, and if feels like right now just about everyone is expecting a cute little bundle of joy. Except for me. I’m already enjoying my bundle.

But, with all the expecting little ones it does mean that I have the fun job of hosting baby showers! And, baby showers are one of my favorite type of parties ever.

I was so excited to host this Bow Ties and Hair Bows Twin baby shower this past weekend. How many times do you get to experience twin girl and boy? Isn’t that just perfect? I wanted to have a special theme that went around how special this moment was!

Hair Bows and Bow Tie baby shower! Perfect for a boy and girl twin.I have been in love with all the bows I’ve been seeing. And, luckily, bows go perfectly for boys or girls! I started with a light color palette. Picking a color palette for a boy/girl baby shower was probably the hardest part. I didn’t want it to be too girly or to boyish. I think I struck a good balance with a little blue, pink, orange, yellow, and white/black polka dots.

Hair Bows and Bow Tie baby shower! Perfect for a boy and girl twin.We hosted the shower in the early afternoon and served a late lunch. I just loved our menu, it was delicious and beautiful. We had sandwiches, salad cups, herb infused lemonade, cakes, cookies, brownies, and chocolate truffles. We served the salads in cups (it was genius), and had small plates for the sandwiches/desserts. I set out Foodadz for the utensils, which made it so nice, easy, and fun! I love the little facts and jokes in each pack. The guests had a great time with them.

Hair Bows and Bow Tie baby shower! Perfect for a boy and girl twin.I kept the party as an open house feel, without any formal games. We did have a “wishes for baby” card for guests to fill out as well as a bow tie and hair bow making station. I just love how the fabric looks all lined up in the soda crate.. swoon!

And then with an accent of some sunflowers, the party was perfect! The guests had a great time, the mother to be got some great presents (and lots of much needed diapers!), and everything was fabulous. Makes me want to host another baby shower! Who’s game?

Bright Ideas back to school pizza party with free printables As a child I was always excited for the “back to school” rush. I didn’t always love school, but I’ll admit that I’ve always loved school supplies. It was so exciting to go and see all those magical school supplies so neatly arranged on the store shelves. Even now I have a hard time restraining myself from wondering up and down the back to school isles.
