Preston’s ‘Toad’ally Hoppin’ 1st Birthday

I have a toad’ally awesome kid’s birthday party to share with you! A friend from high school, Kristen, threw a fabulous first birthday party for her son Preston and was grateful enough to share with us all the wonderful details of the day. A lot of the desserts and decorations Kristen did herself! I loved how they came out with the theme because really it was very personal and apparently very Preston.

“Inspiration for theme: Preston’s love for a little frog on his Jumperoo at 4 months old inspired me to do something magical with this bond. Preston would coo, talk and drool all over the plastic frog for hours. No matter which way we would spin the jumperoo seat, he ALWAYS went back to Mr. Frog. This love sparked the idea for a fun, colorful, and classy birthday party. Much thought went into the fact that most party guests would be adults. With a fun and simple theme, I just let my creative juices flow. This was my first party, and I can’t wait to upstage it next year. The ideas are already brewing! Others who helped tremendously: My Mother, Maureen helped with baking and decorating. I also have to thank my fabulous husband, Brett, for going along with my ideas, no matter how crazy and over-the-top they were.”

Red Egg & Ginger Party Ideas

Being of Asian descent, traditionally a Red Egg and Ginger party is thrown in celebration of a baby’s 100th day. While I am opting to design and print my own invites, I went online to find some ideas and honestly couldn’t find many that weren’t either overtly Asian or too cheesy.

However, I did find some that I thought were really fun and unique. For those of you looking to spice up your Red Egg and Ginger party, here’s a compilation of some of my fave ideas. I’ll post up ours once it’s printed =)

Adorable invites from Good on Paper.

This has got to be one of my favorite finds. A red crocheted egg found on Eden and Elliot.
It’s soooo cute!!For decor, some easy paper flower tutorials like this one from Dozi Design.


…Or for the table. Found on Pinterest.


Cute and simple cake found on Cake Central.


Not everything has to be Asian-themed. Even just utilizing the red color can make a real impact like this dessert table on Pen and Paper Flowers.


Let me know if you guys out there in the blogsphere have more ideas!
