Bottle Diaper Cake

21 Nov

An alternative to the classic “Diaper Cake”, how about a Bottle Diaper Cake! This idea is incredibly simple and only takes as many diapers as you’d like to do. What’s more, you can do this in any color scheme you want. Is the new arrival a boy? girl? or a surprise? It doesn’t matter! Let […]

Paper Pumpkin Centerpiece

This year for my mom’s ward Halloween party, we decided to go big but simple. Giant paper pumpkin centerpieces stood on every table, and miniature sizes joined the food tables.

Mint & Coral bridal shower decor

It would seem mint is the color for weddings this year! And why shouldn’t it be?

This is our first boy, and because we sometimes referred to him as “Coffey Bean” (being that our last name is Coffey), they threw a Cafe themed baby shower. It was adorable! Complete with a chocolate milk bar, fruit salads, pastries  almost everything you’d find […]

Easter Place Setting
