Lashes or Staches Gender Reveal Baby Shower


Jessica couldn’t get enough potato chips, clementine oranges and egg salad with her pregnancies. Jenna loved candy – Twix and frozen Snickers to be exact – while pregnant with her boys. Jodi devoured vanilla ice cream on a nightly basis with both her kiddos.

This Staches and Lashes gender reveal baby shower is so adorable, and has a salty and sweet food spread pregnant women dream of…and a touch of gold sparkle which satisfies, well, everyone!

Momtastic has all the details here!

Thanks to Sylvia at Special Events for sharing all the details, and Lizelle Lotter Photography for sharing the beautiful photos with us.



DIY ABC Block Cupcake Topper


It’s easy as, 1 2 3
As simple as, do re mi
A B C, 1 2 3

These DIY ABC Block Cupcake Toppers are easy and adorable…and edible if you just can’t help yourself. It’s semi-homemade, so it will look like you took the time to make it special, but you don’t even have to turn on your oven. Win, win!




  • Make groups of 6 cookies on the counter.
  • Add frosting to one edge of a cookie {this will be your base}, and quickly place another cookie along the line of frosting.


  • Repeat until you have 4 sides. Every time you add a cookie, be sure to add frosting along its side, so it can stick to the cookie next to it. Be gentle with the block while the frosting is still wet.


  • Once you have all the sides, add frosting to the tops of all the cookies, and add the top cookie.
  • Gently place the block on the counter, and let the frosting dry for 5-10 minutes until it hardens.
  • Pour a pile of sprinkles in a small bowl.
  • Add a small strip of frosting along all the sides and side-by-side dip the wet frosting into the pile of sprinkles until its fully coated. After all the sides have been covered with sprinkles, set aside to let dry.

Sheep Baby Shower


This baby shower is so adorable, it made us want to count sheep all night.  Then, after a night of no sleep, we want to get on a plane to visit Kyburg farm in Stellenbosch, South Africa…and take those sheep lanterns home with us as a souvenir. Oh, we’re not leaving without a bottle {or two} of wine, too.


The gorgeous DIY details at this sheep-themed shower were made by the talented, Tanya Murray.

Lizelle Lotter Photography, thank you for sharing the beautiful images with us.

To make the cute hanging sheep lanterns like Tanya did, simply cut out hands and feet from black paper, add google eyes to the head and glue them to white chinese paper lanterns,

10 Creative Ways to Decorate the Wall with Flowers

Spring is nature’s way of saying, let’s party!
~ Robin Williams

We couldn’t agree more, Robin. Nature is alive again. The warmth of the sun, and buds in the trees is rejuvenating for the soul. We’re so happy Spring is here – seriously, we would hug it if we could.

Naturally, we’ve got flowers on our mind…and hopefully on our walls soon with all these amazing floral wall decoration ideas.

10 Creative Ways to Decorate the Wall with Flowers

1. Antler and Flower Wall Art: We’re still obsessed with all the deer heads popping up on walls, so the combo of deer heads, bright colors and fresh floral has us swooning. {via Wedding Chicks}

2. Paper Flower Wall: We heard Oh Joy! speak at Alt, and immediately loved her. She was a wonderful speaker, and she is insanely talented. Look at that DIY paper wall art. {via Oh Joy!}


3. Girl’s Room Decor: We are smitten with the paper flowers, teepee and gold pouf in this room! One lucky little lady calls this place home, and she’s most definitely a chic princess. {via honey & fitz}


4. Floral Monogram: With a little Modge Podge and a gorgeous floral print, you can create a pretty floral monogram. This would look great on the wall, and it would make a fabulous gift. {via Homey Oh My}


5. DIY Fresh Flower Wall: Buy some fresh stems from your local florist and hang the stems with washi tape. You can do this on a small-scale, or a large one. And, if you want it to last longer, buy fake stems. {via Green Wedding Shoes}


6. Party Backdrop: A Snow & Graham print is lovely and a wall to match is even more lovely. {via Snow & Graham}



7. Pom Flower Wall: Lia Griffith impresses again with this Mother’s Day Brunch pom flower wall. {via Martha Stewart}



8. DIY Giant Floral Typography Wall Art: We need to make this with a J! It’s so beautiful. {via Paper & Stitch}


9. Art Print: We love so many of The First Snow’s prints, so it was hard to pick just one. They are so pretty and unique. Plus, she’s in CO and we have major hometown pride!



10. DIY Framed Wallpaper Art: Make panels of art with rolls of wallpaper. It’s a DIY, which we always love, it’s affordable and looks fabulous! {via Hunted Interior}

boob aid kit_jsorelle

We are talking boobs today ladies and gents. Yes, you heard us right…boobs! Get excited. And for all you soon to be mama’s and new mama’s, you have an opportunity to win some great goodies. Make sure to read below.

If you follow us, you know we have almost 7 children between us. What you may or may not know is that all 3 of us chose to breastfeed our babies, experiencing the gamut of emotions – from joy to pain.  We wrote a humorous poem about our breastfeeding experience, which you can see here.  Here’s what we know to be true about breastfeeding…Some love it, others don’t, and some can’t do it {and its all ok}. It’s a personal decision and a really hot topic! It’s a lot of work {and can be quite painful}. It’s an amazing bonding time only you and your baby can share. And, it’s an unbelievable power that women possess.

To celebrate World Breastfeeding Week, and mothers everywhere, we created the perfect gift to give to a new mom – to save her, and her boobies as they adjust to breastfeeding. Welcome, Boob-Aid. A ‘kit’ that includes all the necessities – soothies gel, nipple butter, nursing pads, a water bottle and our funny poem. You can buy the label and get the poem as a FREE bonus here.
