Cutest Thing I've Seen All Week

Last night, while I was avoiding what I really had to do, a.k.a homework, I stumbled upon this piece of information:

Is this not the cutest thing ever??? Yes, yes it is...
I thought everyone had to see that. It's so adorable and such a cute concept.

I wonder...what if they let go when they're asleep and wake up alone, floating in the middle of nowhere?

Party Planning .. BE CREATIVE!

I Love when people are creative (and cool!) enough to not Plan the "Typical Theme Parties" .. Don't get me wrong .. It's not that I hate them .. But I'd much rather like to be remembered for my CREATIVE AND UNIQUE party and event Planning .. I'd prefer to be Memorable that way! So in that train of thought I though I would show you some of my Favorite Party Ideas and the right occasions to Plan these Theme Parties!

These are some of my Favorite Party Theme IDEAS from:
 Catch my Party and other amazing websites .. 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this "Mustache and Bow Tie Theme Party" And if you change the color palette you can even add Bows (Hair Bows for Girls) and Have an adorable Twin Birthday Party Theme (Bows for the girly Birthday girl and Mustaches for the very manly Birthday Boy)

What about "Carnival Theme Parties" Like this one' .. in the Traditional Red, Yellow, Blue and Stripes PATTERNS!

And Maybe to change it up look at this Adorable Carnival Party or as it's Officially Titled "Vintage Circus Birthday Party" Planned by the amazing Natalie Lesnefsky from "The Busy Budgeting Mama Blog" for her Two Adorable Daughters Sophie(4) and Sienna(2). Looks super Sweet in a pastels color scheme .. Don't you Agree?

Another adorable Theme involves an adorable little Bug! "Lady Bug Theme Parties" are Lovely and you can Play with the Colors .. Perhaps the Classic Red and Back Lady Bug with White touches or a Pink more Light color palette! (1st year to 6th year Birthday Party and even for Baby Showers Like My Friend Patricia's Baby Shower) Note: She was giving Birth while the Shower occurred!

1st year all the way to 10th (unless you Play with the Color Scheme you can maybe use this theme all the way to a Sweet 16th Birthday Bash) year Birthday Party "Peacock Theme"

And last but not Least I couldn't resist ..
I had to post a Christmas Party Idea for kids!

And Of course every Party should Have a Photo-booth in Fact I'll add this in my MUST-HAVE list for Party Planning!

Photoshoot Ideas

I personally love pictures...taking pictures, seeing pictures, editing them. I think photos make great memories and they're fun too. Some things I've done with my pictures are collages, canvas photos, enlargements, and my favorite: photobooks!

I did an engagement photoshoot with Eduardo and it was a lot of fun, kind of nervewrecking in the beginning but as soon as we got the hang of it we enjoyed it. After the engagement shoot we took our wedding photos during the cocktail hour and I love how those pictures came out! We also did another photoshoot a few months after the wedding.

Photoshoots are always fun if you have ideas in mind prior to the shoot, specific poses, locations, and props!

These are some of my photos from various shoots:

Cupcakes made by my mom with our initials and my engagement ring!
Railroad Crossing sign.
Merry Go Round.
'I do' signs made by my mom!
 Golf Cart.
 Masks and Hats.
Art piece.
There are so many things to do to prepare for a photoshoot. You can take flowers, balloons, hats, big jewelry; take pictures at a beach, a park, by a lake...I just love pictures!
