Vintage Sports Party

We were finally able to celebrate my son's birthday this past weekend--he has a December birthday, so we usually wait until all of the holiday craziness is over!
My son has been a Yankee fan his whole life and has really been interested in the history of the old Yankee stadium and sports history--so when I asked him if he wanted a vintage sports theme he was ecstatic! I was beyond thrilled because I love anything vintage!! I found this adorable vintage cake bunting at The TomKat Studio and used it as inspiration for decor!
I also used this striped fabric to accent the party--it really reminded me of vintage baseball!

The kids played baseball pinball and soccer foosball for some of the activities..........
I love this vintage baseball sign that I found online!

I found adorable popcorn cases that resembled those you would find at a sporting event and served peanuts in their shells. I found some decor with vintage cup trophies that I used for the water bottles and a photo banner. I took photos of the kids and framed them in sports frames as a keepsake from the party! We all had a great time--this is such a fun theme for boys!!
Happy birthday to my little sports fan!!

Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is celebrated on Feb 3 this year--and it is the year of the rabbit. My kids love that it is the year of the rabbit because the first night we spent in our new home we woke up to find a wild 'lucky' rabbit sitting at our back door....he was just looking up at us as if he was 'welcoming us into the neighborhood'!
One of the traditions of the Chinese New Year is to reconcile and forget all grudges and sincerely wish peace and happiness to everyone--which I love.
The new year is also celebrated with food and treats...which I really love!!
and another great Chinese New Year tradition is that every family thoroughly clean to wash away ill-fortune in hopes to make way for good upcoming luck---soo I better get cleaning!!

Super Bowl Ideas

Here are a few Super Bowl ideas to help get you ready for the big game that it is around the corner! I bought this stadium cake a few years ago and have used it soo many times, it is great for tailgates, sports parties and of course the Super Bowl! I usually print out the team names and make decor that I place on tooth pics and place them in the cake. I made these shrimp bowls last year by hollowing out lemons and placing small shrimp in the bowls with a football tooth pic to eat them with.
If you are having children in attendance it is always good to have some activities available for them during game time!
I will post some additional appetizer ideas soon....because the Super Bowl is all about the food--right??!!

Happy Birthday Elvis

My son is a big Elvis fan, he really loved him when he was younger! He has a pretty big Elvis collection and he even dressed up as Elvis for Halloween one year. I decided to surprise him last year on the Kings birthday to celebrate and we even got a cake.......the baker laughed so hard when I told her about our little celebration!
Happy Birthday Elvis, long live the king!

Winter Wonderland Fun

One of my favorite thing about January is all of the Sales!! I love all of the winter blue decor that goes on sale after Christmas but can still be used for some inside winter fun! I found this great winter castle at Michael's last year and it was 75% off! The kids had a lot of fun putting it together and decorating it!
I also like to stock up on all of the red and green candy--I use the red candy for Valentine's day fun and save the green candy for St. Pat's day! Oh the joys of shopping, I am always on a treasure hunt!
