Tips and Trends Tuesday: Photo Booth Cuteness!!!

I love photo booths!  I think that they add tremendous fun to any party.  They can double as favors too!  Have your guests take the photo right as they arrive at the party.  Then delegate (husbands work well here) someone to take the photo and load them on the computer to be downloaded and printed before they end of the party.

If you're too short on time..take the photos and send them to your guests with your thank you note on the back!

Here are some of my fav ideas!

Tips and Trends Tuesday: Use your words

I love dessert and party tables.  They are one of my most favorite things to do.  It can be hard sometimes to pull it all together.  I have found a great way to help complete the look is to add words to your table.  

You can find wood letters of all sorts of shapes and sizes at most craft stores.   You can paint them or cover them with cute scrapbook paper. 



I found these letters at Hobby Lobby.  They are actually paper weights!

I found these cuties at an antique store!  When they are not being used as decor..they are being played with by my two year old!

I left these natural, but used a very watered down pink craft paint.


As always...celebrate perfectly!
