Partykins // Holiday Photo Booth

Ain’t no party like a Christmas party!

Let’s cut to the chase: everyone loves a good Photo Booth… especially when you’ve wrangled your kids out of their typical getup of yogurt-stained sweats and scrubbed/pressed/dressed them to the 9′s for a Holiday party!

Home improvement material hoarders rejoice; your time has come! What you’ll need:

- extra-large roll of paper (aka: masking paper or painter’s paper from your local hardware store – a roll is about the price of that Gingerbread latte you ordered this morning) or a pressed Queen-sized bed sheet.

- clear tape

- props /confetti (sorry, in advance, for the chaos ignited by these bits of sparkle)

- sugar-hyped kids

Directions:

Roll it out, tape it up, slap on some stars if you’re feeling extra crafty. (really! that’s it!)

In the age of television-sized smart phones you won’t even need a camera or photographer stationed by the booth. Instead, give yourself the opportunity to snack on the finger foods (you painstakingly cut into Christmas shapes) and allow parents to snap away at their leisure.

“Okay. Great. But how do I enjoy all of photos at the end of the event!?”, you ask. Simply ask your child to help you concoct a specific hashtag that guests can use when sharing on social media. You’ll be able to enjoy photos and reflect on how brave you were to give 8 year old boys confetti all year long! PS: Don’t forget to tag Babiekins- we don’t like missing out on the fun!

Partykins // Lucas León Turns Three

Lucas León is three! We celebrated my  little (not so little) guy with a celebration in our home. Since he has a November birthday planning is a bit tricky (with it being so cold and such). We recently moved and I thought it would be the perfect time to have all our loved ones over and celebrate Lucas’s big day. There was no particular theme - I wanted a clean color pallet with fun, bold patterns. I became inspired after visiting Little Lulubel.  I instantly fell in love with mixing up their bow and geometric prints. From there I continued to incorporate fun Fall touches of burnt yellow and oranges with his lion mask (how perfect for my León!), our favorite Hugo Loves Tiki print, and candles. I added my own vintage plates and vase and his birthday table was complete!

It was the perfect birthday weekend and Lucas was so very loved by all his friends and family. I hope you enjoy the photos!

Partykins // A Celebration for a Winter Queen

With winter right around the corner, we couldn’t help but get inspired by the magic of the season. We turned to whites and silvers for this seasonal celebration fit for a winter queen. By combining a few party accessories with items from around the house, you’ll be able to throw together a winter scene in no time.

Create your very own fringe tassel garland out of tissue paper and add several balloons for a whimsical feel. I decided to forgo the traditional gift bags and set out a candy station that also served as the center piece for the table. Crystal rock candies, white M & M’s and peppermint sticks are the perfect fit for a cool treat! And of course, we can’t forget the vanilla bean cake and chocolate cupcakes smothered in glittery white buttercream icing- reminiscint of freshly fallen snow.

And the most important accessory? Why the queen’s attire, of course! The Daisy Chain Tutu Dress from Tutu Du Monde adds just the right amount of contrast to the hints of white and silver. And if you experience a frosty day, simply add a faux fur vest and wool tights.

This winter themed party is bound to make any little girl feel like a winter queen.
