However, I do loooove me some pretty designs, so No Stress does not mean No Design. It just means that I have to get my act together early enough so that I can do everything ahead of time. The little snag in her party planning is that we'll be in Cape Cod on a family vacation the week before so I really need to be ahead of the game.
But you're not going to get any of my party ideas here. That way when I cut them in half into what I can actually accomplish, you'll have no idea! Instead, look at these random but oh-so-adorable party pics that I had in my Party folder.
Oh man. There is NOTHING that I don't love about this picture. Nothing. I just want to stare longingly at it. The colors, the symmetry, the old-timey charm, the deceptive simplicity... I could go on. I don't know if this is one of her layouts, but it's at least inspired by the great Amy Atlas.
Loooooove!! I'd like to have a little boy just so I could make him this cake! There's nothing I love more than when modern design is brought to the world of children. I will go to the mat before I'm forced into throwing some god-awful Dora the Explorer party. I know that makes me sound like a loon, but we all have our limits and that's mine.
Cute!! I love that they just bought regular party hats at the store and jazzed them up. No sane person could make every fancy party thing from scratch, so I love this little touch.
