A Party Fit for a Prima Ballerina...(tons of pics)

Linking up to: Blooms Designs Online


Enjoy....take it all in...


Birthday Girl


Birthday Girl and her sister at the new birthday present - Disney Ariel Beauty Shop
I used Dollar Tree tablecloths to make "curtains" to showcase their dressing area.





Getting ready for the dance...







All the girls dancing...
The two large "packages" on the wall are the kids school bulletin boards, I needed to camouflage them. 



Craft time..
Dollar Tree had great foam flowers and stickers I bought...they used them all up!









YUMMO


A present from her Aunt.





BFF's




Before the girls get here.



I bought this rack at Homegoods. It was broken in 1/2 (Clearance for $ 10). I glued it, painted it and there you go...

Each girl got a tutu, headband and wand.

Covered the bulletin boards (for school)



Easy paper flowers. Using tissue paper..less than $ 1 a piece.


Each girl got a goodie bag to fill up at the sweet shoppe with their name on it and a ballerina that had the same hair color as the girl.  (Etsy shop...see credit below)

I used my silhouette machine to make the ballerinas and glued them to a bunch of different things.

All the girls got Scrabble Tile Necklaces with Ballerinas on them. (see Etsy shop before for credits)
There are what the necklaces look like.





The table is real long and I did not have a cloth, so i used Crepe paper and made this instead.


Sweet Shoppe



Ikea frames...



Dollar Tree candy...worked well...


Fun polka dot paper and striped paper came from another great Etsy shoppe (see below)






Popcorn cones I made from paper and tape. Again here are the ballerina silhouettes.



Found these at the grocery store...perfect!































It was a beautiful day and a wonderful time with my girls and their friends!

Shining the Spotlight - Finding Home Farms

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you another company that I feel you should know about.  


I first learned about Finding Home Farms on Instagram. Little did I know, Laura, one of the owners of Finding Home Farms, lives local to me, in the Hudson Valley of New York. 
You can read all about Laura and her lovely family at her blog about page. 
 I immediately knew that I had to try their products in my home. I have grown to love their products (shop), Laura's sense of style and her blog. 
Can we just stop now and talk about their packaging first.  It speaks to you before even trying the products. Simple, organic and calming.  Isn't it just darling with the little dove.
sigh....insert smile

I love her blog tagline - Gather Create Connect - that says it all, there in three little words. YOU already know before going forward that you are in for a special treat. 
I am only going to speak to a few of their many products because these are what we use in our home with our family.

Happy New Year and welcome back to our first
Shining the Spotlight
for 2017! 

 I hope you all enjoyed your holidays and are settled back into your routines.







Today I am so excited to introduce you to a company that has such a wonderful purpose behind it!  Jessica Griffis is a 17 year old college student paying her way through college selling Hilltop Design simple, natural and homemade products.  Jessica was also home educated!!! (dear to my heart)

Ya'll know I am all about the package as first impressions are so important. Don't you just love this sticker/stamp that she had on her package!  Spoke to me before I even opened it up and smelled the freshness of the products. 

I was impressed with the smell of the products, not overwhelming and artificial smelling at all. I felt safe using them on myself and my children. 

There are lip balms, lotions, scrubs, body butter, bath bombs and more.  The scrubs rival any other name brand and the bath bombs are THE BOMB!   The products are very …

Today at Woodwater Farmhouse, I am sharing with you a company that  not only meets but exceeds my expectation.  In service and product. 
Rustic Honey




The owner's name is Lauren Moran and I can see why her shop is so successful!  Rustic Honey is a lifestyle boutique. They offer women's clothing and accessories, children's wear, home goods, vintage finds, handmade gifts and more!  Let's look at this business card first. First impressions are everything in my book.  (I did not get a picture of the adorable chalkboard wrapping that the box was wrapped in but it was so cute!)


It's cute, to the point and shows her style.


Not even talking about the farmhouse towel that I ordered yet...but come on a hand written note to me personally and has all her social media outlets on there also. Clever!  On the opposite side of this personalized note is the cutest quote and picture. 

Ok I am getting to the towel I ordered..it's HUGE and adorable. The printing is clear and impressive!�…
