Spell Bound Playhouse

Elizabeth's little playhouse needed a Halloween makeover! You can read more about our playhouse  here (highly recommend a playhouse for your little ones! Elizabeth loves hers).We added a couple cute touches from the shop and invited our cute neighbor, Adeline (also know as "Ads" when you ask Elizabeth), over to play. You can go in so many directions with Halloween decor, and we had fun going with a spell, witchy look that was colorful.

Our new felt garlands have been a huge hit, and I snagged the Spell On You one to use as our inspiration for the photo shoot. I love the simplicity and colors this brand uses. Elizabeth and I also made a mini garland because we do love our balloons! I included Elizabeth because she likes to act like she's blowing up the balloons with me and then spilled them everywhere - fun times. Topped it of with a holographic ghost to make it a little extra.

These new Hocus Pocus inspired plates that coordinate with the garland are too cute! Those witches are a holiday staple and their quotes classic. We paired them with the black cat napkins in honor of Binx. Little pumpkins are an easy centerpiece, especially on a tiny table and when littles are around. Why my child tries to eat her pumpkins, I will never understand.

Our little models were too cute and always have a great time playing together. We topped them off with adorable bat hair clips and the mini witch hat. So cute to rock all month! Plus they make such a festive gift. Shout out to Adeline for joining in on our fun yesterday!

Over the Rainbow Event with Daydream Society

When Mary Kevin, owner of Daydream Society partyware line, said she was coming through town, I knew we needed to throw a kid event! What's better for a trip to Kansas than an Over the Rainbow Dorothy party? We used their pretty pastel rainbow collection as our inspiration and ran with it. Basically, rainbows were everywhere! Major shout out to my friend Alison Moore who captured the event with her dreamy photos.

Obviously for the table settings, we used the Over the Rainbow collection. I decided to mix in the Frenchie Stripe napkins to mix it up and we matched it with a mermaid confetti pack. The rainbow cups we ended up using for the craft. I love the colors in this rainbow, plus the sparkly holographic clouds add such a fun touch.

We worked with local dessert wizards Sweet Sugarlicious and Buckingham Cakes to create rainbow sweets. Wendi made rainbows, clouds and spelled out "rainbow" with cookies that matched the tableware perfectly. The cookie pops were a crowd pleaser and Lisa put the cutest rainbows on top with sprinkle clouds. We love when the treats have a dual purpose and are great decor as well as delicious.

Kids painted wooden rainbow block stackers as their craft at the party. We stuck with washable crayola paints just in case they got extra creative. I love that it's a craft and a fun toy for them to take home and use. We now carry the wooden rainbows in the shop, ready to be decorated! Mary Kevin brought coordinating rainbow coloring sheets and setup her adorable tattoo bar. Kids were able to pick out the tattoo of their choosing from the Daydream collection. They are some of our favorite tattoos - vibrant colors and metallic accents. We loved the tattoo bar so much, we are setting up our own in the shop! Coming soon - bring the kids in for a tattoo on the spot, we are starting with the Daydream Society collection and there are great choices for kids and adults!

The backdrop was my favorite part. I told the shop girls I wanted to recreate the plates and they created this amazing balloon rainbow! The colors matched perfectly and the pastels made a pretty soft photo backdrop. Thanks to our friends at Kansas Dance Academy, we had the perfect Dorothy for our event. We borrowed a dress from Ballet Wichita and I loved that it had a fun twist like our event. Plus the pale blue matched the backdrop well. My little shop baby dressed as Glenda the Good Witch and rocked her adorable fairy wings and birthday crown from the shop (it's a "one" crown that I turned around). We loved seeing all the party guests in their Wizard of Oz inspired looks!

Want to throw a rainbow party of your own? Shop our Set the Party setup below! It's such a cute theme and you can take it many different directions - rainbow, Wizard of Oz, unicorn, painting/color, My Little Pony and more!
