I went back and forth about whether I was going to put a “round-up” post up on the blog… but, as I enjoy reading everyone’s yearly round-up posts, I decided to go ahead and put one up. So, without further ado… here are my top 12 party posts of 2012!
In January I featured a Rustic Dinner Party that I threw for a friend’s birthday… my favorite details were the spray painted animal figures that found their way into the centerpieces and, of course, all the burlap. I’m pretty sure that 2012 was my year to use the heck out of burlap!
I shared a Woodland Themed Baby Shower
in March… I loved all the cute little forest touches that I gathered from around the web. It remains one of my top Pinned posts!
May was all about cocktails and summery decor
. I think I was really, really ready for summer to finally get here! I created a summery tablescape for the grand opening of my Etsy shop. I really enjoyed using vintage sheets in my design.
Because we live in Portland our June summer picnic was moved indoors when the skys opened up and rain poured down on us. But, I loved the pretty summery decor items and all of the lovely people that joined us for the picnic
In August I was able to help with a couple of weddings in the Portland area… I have some wonderful, creative friends. It was such a treat to help with their weddings. I posted a sneak peek of one of the weddings
that shows some of my favorite details. I’ll be posting some of the party details with the professional photos for this wedding, and one other, in early 2013!
I can’t believe I have a one-year-old now! I had such fun putting together his “You Are My Sunshine” first birthday party
and was thrilled with the way it turned out. I also am SO happy that I hired (my now very good friend) Macey of Motormouth Studios
to shoot his party. Not only did she do a great job capturing my kiddo, his party, and his friends… but, the package was affordable as well!
It’s the last year of my 20s… the world is over! My 12/12/12 birthday party had an end of the world theme in honor of the (then) upcoming dooms day! Loved my glittered dinos the most.
