January Faves

Wow…January went by really fast! And I’m sad to report that we hardly got any snow in Indiana. I’m hoping for at least one good snow fall this winter. Maybe we’ll get it in February. Fingers crossed! Snow talk aside let’s move on to my recap of the first month of 2016….

Girly Winter ONEderland Party with Shindigz

It’s no secret that I love each of the four seasons – fall, spring, winter and summer {usually in that order too}. When I first became a party stylist for Shindigz I knew I wanted to plan a party that involved snow. Lots and lots of snow! Luckily, a friend of mine was celebrating her daughter’s first birthday this month so I was able to talk her into throwing a Winter ONEderland themed party to celebrate the occasion…and give me a chance to plan the snowy party I’ve been envisioning!

The Best of 2015

Since becoming a blogger one of my favorite things to do is recap. I’d like to think that I have a fantastic memory, but as I scroll through my blog yearly {and monthly} I realize I forget about half of the things I do or create. Recapping usually brings a huge smile to my face and reminds me of why I chose to start a blog in the first place. Even though we are now a week into the new year I have to take a step back and recall my best posts of 2015 {some of them my favorites and some of them yours based on the stats}.

Around the World NYE Party

 In the past NYE has sort of felt like a let down. You wait, and wait for the ball to drop at midnight…then that’s it. Sure you can still party the night away, but the anticipation that builds up waiting for the ball to drop fades away pretty quickly. Last year my friend’s and I had the brilliant last-minute NYE party idea…why not celebrate the official start of the new year for different countries around the world throughout the evening!? Then your NYE celebration really lasts all night as opposed to a short moment at midnight. {I’m sure were not the only ones to ever think of this idea, but I’d like to think we have a unique spin on it!}

And so we celebrated NYE Around the World style 😉
