Theodore’s BEARY 1st Birthday


     We can BEARLY believe our sweet Theodore Graham is ONE! The time has flown by so quickly. It truly is so bittersweet. I have enjoyed every minute with him by my side. Our Teddy is such a joy. He has the sweetest soul. One of his nicknames other than “Theo” is…”Teddy”. His middle name is Graham.. he’s our Teddy Graham. How precious?!

      At his Newborn photoshoot in one photo he was holding a mini stuffed bear for his name..that photo is one of my favorites of all time. When looking back through popped up and I just knew this was the perfect birthday theme for our Theodore. A “BEARY” happy birthday indeed. And of course, that precious photo was displayed for our family to see and reminisce on how much our sweet boy has grown this year! 

 I had so much fun putting together and planning everything for his First birthday! If you know me, you know I LOVE to throw a party. I love all the planning and thought that goes into it. From the adorable cakes, to the high chair banner, his precious lil’ gentleman outfit, and to the precious Teddy Bear party favors and everything in between…you just have got to LOVE 1st birthday parties! 

  I kept Theodore’s 1st birthday party very intimate, with family only. I was able to really enjoy myself, the experience, and my time with him. 

I’m so blessed to be your Mama, Theodore Graham. May God bless you and be with you, always. I love you!

A Whimsical Countryside Tablescape

     Hi sweet friends! Today I am so excited to partner up with MacKenzie-Childs to bring you this whimsical countryside tablescape that I created on the back porch of our barn! I love to host and gather our families at our Ranch and of course, I love for things to be pretty and dressed up for them! A table is one of my favorite things to decorate. With the view of our backyard pond I thought it would be gorgeous to setup a whimsical outdoor tablescape for us to enjoy during both Spring and Summertime! 
     I love all things MacKenzie-Childs. If  I HAD to pick one pattern,(such a hard decision because I adore them all). I would say Courtly Check is my absolute favorite. I adore the black and white check. It is such a classic and timeless yet bold pattern and can go with SO much for so many different holidays/occasions/theme's! 
     There is something so beautiful and whimsical to me about Courtly Check paired with light pinks, purples, and pastels.  I arranged this floral arrangement myself in one of my favorite vases. I use this vase for majority of my special occasions. It is just a statement piece and when it is out, you're allowed to keep the rest around it simple if wanted!
     I use our Courtly Check Enamel Dinner Plate's for everyday use + special occasions. That is what I love about these plates! They are super versatile and you can dress them up as well as down. I also use our Courtly Check Pitcher weekly when I make our iced tea, it's very practical! I also use it at all of our Holiday gathering's & celebrations. I have and do highly recommend the large size. as it's always the perfect amount to serve all of our guests!
     Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed this tablescape as much as I did creating it! My family and I have enjoyed outdoor dinners with a beautiful view and beautiful decor! If you try something similar to this, send me photos and let me know! I would love to see. Have a blessed week!!

Brett's 40th Surprise Birthday Party- Hibachi Style


     This month my sweet husband Brett turned 40! The big 40! I am so proud to be his wife and stand by him. In his 40 years of life, he has accomplished so much. He is a successful entrepreneur, runs and owns 3 companies, he is the hardest worker yet is still the most loving and present husband to me and father to our 3 children and most importantly.. he is a Godly man. He deserves it all! 
     2020 has been a crazy year and despite all of the crazy restrictions, I knew I wanted to make his 40th birthday special! Something he'll always remember and just a little reminder of how special he is to me and how much I love him. .
    I decided we were going to go with a SURPRISE Hibachi themed party! Something fun and unique!  Brett loves all types of Asian foods, it is easily his favorite kind of food. So when I spotted JC Hibachi on Instagram I knew I had to book! JC Hibachi is a top quality Japanese catering and personal chef here in Houston and surrounding areas. I couldn't recommend him enough! The experience was amazing. Not only was his food absolutely delicious- he was so entertaining! He interacted with us and the kids with funny props to throwing rice in our mouths. We were constantly smiling and laughing!
     For the Party set up, I wanted it to be an intimate scene at our Ranch in front of our pond. It was a very relax feel! I wanted the hibachi grill to go under a tent. I went through Avalon Event Rentals  and rented out a 20x20 frame tent with leg drapery and I also added a black chandelier to the tent! I was very impressed with how it all turned out. It was beautiful.
    Next up, I had to have a main "WOW" factor to the party set up! I spotted GF Lit Marquee Letters on Instagram and just knew they had to be apart of this special event for Brett. GF Lit offers 4 ft marquee letter's/numbers/symbols that light up! I received so many compliments and "WOWS!" on this statement piece! I got mine stacked to say "BRETT'S 40!" and once again I could not recommend this Marquee vendor enough!
      I wanted to add something more to "BRETT'S 40!" Marquee Letters! I wanted to add a pop of color and dimension, to really make the letter's stand out! I knew just who to call who could make it happen! My sweet friend Isabella from  Balloons by Isabella. Her and her husband are the sweetest power couple duo and made my vision a reality! They did a beautiful cascade of balloons on each side of the Marquee Letters. They also added some Asian styled hand held fans and an Asian bamboo umbrella. All of Isabella's work is beautiful and breath taking! She is also a sweet heart to work with and I 10/10 recommend her to you for your next event.
     Of course, we had to celebrate with a sweet treat!  I received the most beautiful Japanese themed cake from  The Cake Boutique By Miri ! I was absolutely blown away by her art. The cake was beautiful and so detailed. Also, yes.. it is hard to find someone who does a beautiful cake. However, it is even harder to find someone who does a beautiful cake AND they can make the cake taste amazing too! Miri outdid herself! Her cake was not only was delicious. It was so moist and her cake flavors and fillings were out of this world. She homemakes her own jellies for the fillings. I went with her most popular flavor-Vanilla Cake with Strawberry Jelly and Cream Cheese Filling. I can see why that's a favorite. IT. WAS. SO YUMMY!! I am going to be using her for a lot more events to come!
     Last but NOT least.. a MOBILE BAR SERVICE! That was a must, right?!!! I searched and searched and came across the coolest one. Something that I knew Brett would really be impressed by. The Tap Truck. Seriously you guys, I have never seen something like this in my life! I loved this so much because unlike all of the other "mobile /bubbly bars" this had the more masculine feel which is exactly what I wanted for my husbands birthday party! This one was SO UNIQUE! That's what I loved most about it.  Basically the best local craft beer and wine coming out of a cool vintage pick-up truck! What!? How awesome. They provide cocktails and liquor as well. The owner, Tiffany was super responsive and easy to work and schedule with! She was the one at our party serving us and she was a doll! Nothing but great things to say about her and her company! Contact her if you're looking for a unique factor for your next event!!
     I had such a blast planning this for my sweet Brett. He deserved it all and more. He was SUPER surprised and couldn't believe it! This party was a success and I truly hope Brett knows how loved he is by us. He is our rock! We love you!

* A huge thank you to all of the Vendors who were apart of this event and allowed for my vision to come to life! I couldn't recommend them each enough and feel so honored that they were apart of such a special day and celebration.
