"Mint to Be" Baby Shower featuring Martha Stewart and Cricut

Do you know a mama-to-be that was meant to be a mommy?  Then you are going to love this "Mint to Be" Baby Shower theme!  I am so excited to share this party with you.  It's my latest collaboration with Cricut, Martha Stewart, and Michaels, and it's full of beautiful colors and easy ideas that you can recreate at home, which will make planning your baby shower a breeze!

When it comes to color combos, you just can't get much prettier than mint and blush!  The Mint and Blush Martha Stewart Collection has a gorgeous array of party goodies that are so soft and delicate...just adorable for a baby shower.  

You guys know I can't resist a good play on words, so the pretty shade of mint in these goodies created the perfect opportunity for me to get a little punny, thus the "Mint to Be" Shower Theme was born!

Woodland Tribal Wild and Three Birthday Party

Woodland Tribal Wild and Three Birthday Party

You guys asked for more birthday party ideas for boys, and I heard ya!  Say hello to our newest boy theme, a Woodland Tribal Wild and Three Birthday Party.  :)

I was walking through Target one day and saw this plush bear hanging in the kids' bedding/room decor department.  So un"bear"ably cute, right?!!  The little guy was too adorable to pass up, so into my cart he went.  I drove home thinking about how I could incorporate him into a party, trying to see if I could build something around what is currently trending.  I have a "Wild and Three" party invitation for girls that is super popular, so I thought it might be cool to give that theme a woodland tribal spin for the boys.  A few hours later, this fun little Wild and Three Woodland Tribal invitation was born, and the party planning began!

Hot Cocoa Bar - Have a Cup of Cheer!

Hot Cocoa Bar - Have a Cup of Cheer!

I am not a cold weather girl.  As soon as the temps even come close to dipping below 50 degrees, gimme cozy blankets, fires in the fireplace, and hot cocoa...lots of it!  

When I saw these sweater mugs and buffalo plaid to-go cups from Oriental Trading, I thought they'd be great for setting up a Hot Cocoa Bar that could last all through the cold weather season.   

I love the idea, cuz no matter what you've got going on, hot cocoa is always at the ready! 

If you're staying in, grab a sweater mug and cozy up.  If you're heading out, grab a cute disposable cup for the road.  Perfect, right?
