Nautical Coral + Mint Cape Cod Wedding

When these two special education teachers met six years ago, it didn't take long before a friendship and eventual romance followed. And once the question was popped and the was date set, a wedding at the bride's family vacation home made perfect sense. Ruth Eileen captured every moment, ...

DIY Halloween Costume: Cotton Candy

I lied. THIS is definitely my favorite Halloween costume. Ever. I actually challenge you to find one that is cuter because I'm 100% convinced that it doesn't exist. Even my now 5 month old, Thea Grace, thinks she looks pretty darn cute. Well, she did until she started eating the fabric batting and (bad) mom cracked up laughing instead of helping the poor girl.

DIY Halloween Costume: Pinata

This might be my favorite halloween costume. Ever. Probably because my funny little guy thought the costume was completely hilarious and couldn't stop laughing. But mostly because he looks like a real freaking pinata!! I am obsessed. Plus the fringe is laid onto standard clothes so there is no itchiness or frustration at all. Thanks to Ruthie...

DIY Halloween Costume: Jellyfish

Confession. I am one of those mothers who waits until the days before Halloween, then frantically flies around town trying to piece together whatever is left in my kids' sizes. Well, I should say I WAS that mother. Until we started crafting our own costumes a few years back and I realized that even the simplest ideas can be made entirely magical. Case in point? This year's jellyfish costume for my 6 year old.

DIY Floral Beach Cruiser

Beach cruisers make me happy but beach cruisers decorated with the prettiest florals? Those have me doing high kicks. We first fell in love with this floral infused bicycle here and have since been dreaming of crafting a get away bike of our very own. The Little Things, ...

DIY Felted Ball Mobile

Most everyone here at SMP headquarters is either on mat leave, has just returned from said leave, or has recently announced that they're expecting. There are maybe two of us who joke that there's something in the SMP water, and we're crossing our fingers it's not contagious (hashtag NotReady). But then we create a DIY the likes of this one, and I start to second guess myself. Because, you guys? It's so cute!!

Kicked Up Condiments

I remember this french fry place in San Francisco that had like 30 different dipping sauces. Oh the joy of narrowing that down to my top 5 as I placed my order...one delicious dunking tank after another. Well today, we're making our own little dips of heaven. From Bloody Mary Ketchup to Bourbon Honey Mustard, these dips will crank up any dish your cooking. And for those of you looking for the...

DIY Balloon Arch

So this project almost killed me. Literally. We got the idea from The House that Lars Built's amazing balloon arch right here, but tweaked it a bit to tower over a table full of little kids for our State Fair Birthday Party. This project is not for the faint of heart but if you follow the well...

DIY Marquee Light-Up Cake Topper

When I told Jess - our in house DIY guru - that I wanted a cake topper that lit up like a state fair marquee for Audrey's Birthday, I expected her to tell me that I was nuts. Because why would you want a cord coming off your cake? But then I sent her a link to the cordless, battery operated, miniature LED lights and boom. An idea was born.

DIY Photo Booth Props

As a wedding and party blogger, I've seen my fair share of photo booths. But for some reason, when it's your own kid and your kids cute friends, the idea just feels right. But we wanted to update our State Fair Photo Booth with some serious SMP style. So Jess crafted these adorable (and free downloadable!) prop templates. It's photobooth chic times ten. 8.5”x11” white cardstock...

DIY Goldfish Soap Favors

So now we're breaking down all of the DIYS for our State Fair Birthday party. I have to admit, we found this idea on Pinterest. Obviously. But really. There couldn't be a cuter, more appropriate favor. Tiny bags of goldfish surrounded by clear glycerin soap made to look exactly like the kind of prize you might win at a state fair.

Modern State Fair Birthday Party

Every year we throw my daughter, Audrey, a birthday party. The kind of party that leaves her mom (me) with glue gun blisters, heat exhaustion and a few new strands of gray hair. You might remember her 1st3rd...
