Perfect weather combined with the perfect palette of peach, orange, pinks and green offer the best of both worlds with this ‘Bonjour Bebe’ Baby Shower shared with us by Mama Pranisa.
As impressive as the guest list is, I’m going to have a tough time pulling myself away from this glorious spread of mini eclairs, cream puffs, madeleines, berry tarts, donuts and macaroons. Styled by the one and only Potomac Parties. So sweet, so very delicious!

Tied around bottles of mini champagne, I have to ask – does life get any better than this?!
Thank you for sharing your ‘Bonjour Bebe’ baby shower brunch with us, Mama Pranisa!
From the gorgeous ranunculus floral arrangements to the cucumber mint spritzer,
each and every detail was so beautifully appointed. Cheers!

Fiesta Like There’s No Mañana! Cinco de Mayo Party
We’re cranking up the color and turning up the tunes! Let’s ‘Fiesta Like There’s No Mañana!’.
Cinco de Mayo, Spanish for the ‘fifth of May’, is a celebration of Mexican heritage and pride.
Traditional Mexican dishes, free-flowing margaritas, and festive decorations top off the vibe. Incorporate Mexican music and be ready to shake your maracas, olé!
Kid Friendly Beverage Ideas
We wholeheartedly encourage you to keep those margaritas flowing, but we’ve also gotch yo’ back, girl! We’re gonna help you save face and keep pace by staying hydrated, so we’ve curated some of our favorite non-alcoholic options for you as well. 💦
More non-alcholic options include lemonade, Jarritos (mexican soda), and carafes filled to the rim with water – or Kool Aide if you’re cooler than us! (Totally dropped the ball there – that would have been ‘Kool’!). Top those buckets off with fresh cut fruit – blood oranges, orange, grapes, lemons and limes. The more, the merrier!
We dropped the ball and went with ice-cold water, but Kool Aid would be a much KOOLer option!
We want you to show us your jugs! Uh, I mean, we’d love to see your festive displays! We’re always looking to show our customers off! To be considered for feature, simply submit your party photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tequila Sunrise with Ella Bella
They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, and maybe they’re right.
Little Miss Ella Bella looks like she knows just about all there is to know about good tequila. Arriba! Arriba!
Grab your FREE ‘Tequila Sunrise’ recipe printable, olé! You can download by pressing the ‘DOWNLOAD’ button below. Cheers!
This is asking for trouble (she says with a twinkle in her eye!). We invited guests to DIY at the Tequila Bar. Provide lime, salt and of course – TEQUILA!
Something about this pink Himilayan Sea Salt speaks to our fiesta-loving hearts. No matter how you like your tequila, a side of pink salt makes it all just a little more fun.
There really is no party quite like a fiesta party! The design and setup process was a lot of fun; from early-morning Tequila Sunrises with mi amiga, to sharing Jarritos with the kids, there’s just so much life and color in a good Cinco de Mayo party. We’re sharing our Cinco de Mayo shopping list over on Amazon. I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
Gorgeous photos of the expectant mother-to-be on display in ornate gold frames were gracefully strewn throughout the party decor. Table settings made complete with golden flatware, chargers, porcelain trimmed plates and topped off with ‘Oh Baby’ napkins in gold and white. Scroll all the way down for purchase link.
Is there a sweeter name in all the land? ‘Colette Noelle’ is announced on a buttercream cake with pearl decorative accents and topped with a bow.
In the spirit of good fun, it’s time to start Boo-ing your friends and neighbors!
Booing is an American contribution to Halloween which can be traced back to the 1980s. It’s a ding-dong-ditch, knock-and-run FUN tradition of surprising your neighbor with a fall treat. Many people are still in the dark about this Halloween tradition, so to shed a little light on the subject, these are the rules:
Print TWO ‘Boo’ printables along with this poem:
Halloween is drawing near,
But don’t let this spook bring you fear.
We’ve left these treats just for you.
Enjoy them please; we hope you do!
Then before two days have come and passed
Spread the fun to make it last.
Choose two friends to give treats to,
Then they’ll be BOOED just like you!
Assemble your treat bags and print your poems, then stealthily deliver them to your friends and neighbors in drop-ring-run fashion. You’ll want to remain anonymous, so try not to get caught!
But, if you’re like me, and you’re just dying to have a little Fall festive fun with your neighbor, feel free to breeze right past all of this mummy-jumbo and download your FREE Printable to use however you wish, muAH-ha-hah-haaaaa!!
This ‘Boo’ design is formatted to print four to a standard US sheet (8.5″x11″). Each individual tag measures approximately 3.5″x5″.
I’d love to see how you use your BOO printables! Tag @Custom_Maed on IG or shoot me a photo for a chance to be featured online. I can’t wait to see what you do! I’m sure it’ll be ‘wicked ghould’! 👻🎃😂
1. Print the FREE BOO PRINTABLE and the poem. Printing on heavy white card stock is recommended.
2. Cut them out. I apologize in advance about the decorative curves! They’re wicked fun though, right?!
3. Punch a hole at the top and string ribbon through, or use as you wish.
Be sure to follow my Halloween Pinterest board for even more Halloween inspiration!
Have yourself a wicked good – and SAFE – Halloween!
