FREE halloween printables

Jenna, sis and owner of the fabulous Fleur de Lis, created Halloween printables for me to share with my kids’ friends…and we wanted to make sure you were in on the action too. Click on this link: happy halloween printables, for your free printables. Ah, don’t you just love that word…free.

All you have to do is…
1. Purchase glow sticks, Reese’s Pieces and small cellophane bags from your local Michael’s and grocery store.
2. Print and cut the labels.
3. Punch a hole through the label and use festive ribbon to attach the label.
4. Save a few Reese’s Pieces for yourself to enjoy.
5. You have yourself a sweet and adorable Halloween favor and/or placecard.

tutu cute

Tulle. Tutu. Sparkles. Poms. Pink.

Sounds like a party fit for a beautiful ballerina…happy birthday, ballerina Carson!

Thanks to Karey at Orange Blossom Photography for sharing all the pretty in pink details with us.

Everything from the decor to the treats was done by Elle & Em Party Design (Carson’s mom is the Elle part of the business)! Tulle tutu’s were made for all the little ballerina’s in attendance, and they danced around under colorful poms that were strung throughout the yard.
