December birthdays can be tough and I know, first hand, because I have one- and now, so does my daughter. I want her birthdays to feel as special as those “lucky” kids who get to have pool party birthdays in the summer. We celebrated Courtney’s first birthday by embracing the holiday spirit with a theme of Our Sugar Plum is Turning 1! It was a festive affair that lent itself well for a little girl’s birthday party. My favorite details included the paper-doll ballerina garland, a tulle tutu for my little one, ballerina cupcake toppers, Amazingly Good Eggnog, and party cracker favors.
Most of the party was DIY, but I could not have done it without a little help from these sources:
“More Merry Please” Disposable Cups from Pier 1 Imports
Custom Onsie from Etsy Shop, Ortinau Art
Tutu from Etsy Shop, SimplyElegant93
Happy Birthday Banner and Snowflake Garland from Etsy Shop, EMTsweetie
Happy Birthday Courtney!!!
Thank you to our amazing Clients, Vendors, Friends and Family for helping to make 2014 our best year yet!

Wishing you all a holiday season full of magic!
We’ve been busy getting in the holiday spirit and have been drawing so much inspiration from gorgeous velvet. An incredibly versatile fabric that is equally comfortable in elegant, luxurious or modern, playful designs. For more holiday inspiration, visit our Happy Holidays Pinterest board.
And here are just a few quotes I’m going to read every day to remind me of my resolutions.
“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Leonardo Da Vinci
“In character, in manner, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler; solitude will not be solitude, poverty will not be poverty, nor weakness weakness.” Henry David Thoreau
“Simplicity is the final achievement. After one has played a vast quantity of notes and more notes, it is simplicity that emerges as the crowning reward of art.” Frederic Chopin
“Simplicity is the most difficult thing to secure in this world; it is the last limit of experience and the last effort of genius.“ — George Sand
“That’s been one of my mantras – focus and simplicity. Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” Steve Jobs
