Happy Friday you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

Mother´s Day isn´t far away so I wanted to share this cute table setting with you today. You can invite all of your mom friends a day early and celebrate motherhood or you invite your mom and grandma to celebrate this special day with them.

It will be my second Mother´s Day this year and as rewarding it is to be a mom it definitely is as hard. The constant looking our for your little one that they are safe and have everything they need is intense at times but to be honest I always wanted to be mom and I wouldn´t have it any other way.

The pandemic hasn´t made it easy to find other mom´s with babies so I am glad two of my friends also became moms last year.

So for the table setting I choose an all pink and gold color theme mixed in with lace and gorgeous flowers. Overall it is a very feminine and romantic vibe. I just love how it turned out.

The little cakes are from a local bakery and husband couldn´t wait for the shot to be over so he could have one with his coffee.

Celebrating this day never had more meaning to me than today and I am so happy to be Emilia´s mom.

Since we are all someone´s daughter I am linking a few things I think would make great gifts for your mom on Mother´s Day.

All the details to Emilia´s Minnie Mouse Birthday Party…

….

Happy Friday you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

the weekend is finally here and also the pictures of Emilia´s first birthday are back. How adorable has the Minnie Mouse theme been? The cake I ordered was so cute I almost cried when I cut into it. Also the cupcakes were the most precious I have ever seen.

I wanted to share all the items and info with you guys here on the blog cause I got some questions and sharing it on here means it stays on my platform forever.

The theme I decided was Minnie Mouse for my little girl cause I think it is an absolute gorgeous theme for a girl´s birthday party plus we gave a Mickey Mouse stuffed animal to her some months ago and she takes it everywhere she goes so I thouht the theme would be on point as she already knows and likes her mouse plus her mommy is a huge Disney fan.

And I know it only was her first birthday party and I probably went a little overbord but so what. We have been in lockdown for so long and restricted to do so much I wanted to have the most beautiful first birthday for her even if she won´t remember it. There will always be tons of photos and items for her keepsake box.

What to include into a Minnie Mouse birthday party

The Cake

The first thing I always think about when choosing a party theme is the cake. I love cakes and the looks of them and always wanted to have a tree-tier birthday cake for my child. Now I can finally have those. I have found various pictures of Minnie Mouse cakes on Pinterest and ordered a mix between 4 or 5 different cakes. 

Is one cake enough or is more required. To be honest the huge cake would have been enough cause we only invited the grand-parents due to the Corona restrictions but I wanted the little cupcakes too. A baker nearby make those and they tasted so so good plus how cute are the little cookie ears in the buttercream?!

The Decor

So party decor is right up my alley. In fact all decor is but who is counting. I get most of my party decor from Pink Dots Party Store. They have sorted their items by themes and/or color and you know me – I love great organisation. 

Here is what I got from Pink Party Dots:

red/white/black rosettes / red photo backdrop garland / red dot napkins / black dot napkins

The table decor includes some things from amazon as well as etsy. These three are my go-to for every party. The cupcake etagere is from amazon and holds 24 pieces. The black sequins tablecloth is from etsy. It is huge and looked so pretty. The Minnie Mouse letters are a download from etsy. I went to a copy shop to print them on thicker paper to cute them out and make garland for Emilia out of it. To be honest I was very proud of myself cause it turned out great.

The Photo Backdrop

Who wouldn´t want a huge ballon arch occupying their living room days before the party!!! No just kidding I loved our ballon arch. It was easier to assemble than I thought and I did it with a friend of mine and to say we were pretty damn proud of ourselves would be an understatement. I got the ballon kit off of amazon plus the band to attach the ballons. The whole ballon arch concept is self-explaining once you unpacked it all. And one more thing – if you are planning on doing one you need to get an electric pump otherwise you won´t make it out alive. It still took us some time with the mashine but at least it didn´t take our breath. Since I am no one for white walls I added the red photo backdrop garland (used the same one for NYE) and really like the way it looked. This was smash cake area and it looked so great in the pictures. Highly recommend getting one of these for any kind of backdrop you would need. They are inexpensive and so easy to hang.

The birthday girl´s outfit

Our little birthday girl had two outfits. One for her great entrance including the cake smashing and one to be clean and comfortable after. I got this adorable red polka dot tulle skirt on amazon and it came with a black onesie. It is really small. I couldn´t close the onesie and I also had to add more elastic to the skirt. It is one size fits all, if you are ordering the next size there will be a two on the onesie. It was okay for us cause I tucked the onesie into the tights and she only wore it for about an hour and didn´t seem uncomfortable. The second outfit was her comfy theme look. I got this red polka dot set on amazon as well and I was just as cute as the first. I ordered the 90 cm which was still a little big but better than the other way around. 

The Sentimentals

Since it was her first birthday I printed some pictures of her as a newborn and added the date. It is a personal touch and a very emotional experience to do so but I loved going through all of her newborn pictures.

Congratulaions for staying with me. It was such a long post but there were lots of details and I had so much fun planning it all for her even if we didn´t have guests other than the grand-parents. Hopefully next year will be different. 

Wishing you a happy weekend. See you.

Happy Easter Monday you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

we had a fun filled Easter weekend – a nice change to our usual days – with Easter Egg Hunt, having Easter brunch and overall some quality family time. 

I also always use the time when my husband is home and can look after our daughter to organize a little corner in our home. It makes me happy and keeps me sane and the clutter to a minimum.

This weekend I organized / redecorated our Billy showcase that is in our living room. I use it to store all of our glassware and also my big candles in glass jars. 

How to create the most storage space

Use your shelf from top to bottom

I got these small boxes with matching lids from Ikea and I was really sad in the beginning because I wanted to put four in one row and that didn´t work by a few cm but the upper shelf could not been any lower. Fortunately two fit on top of each other which saved me even more space. There isn´t much space left so this really is optimal.

Adjust your shelves so no space will be wasted

I changed the height of some shelves and put them as low as the top of the highest item was. This will add more space. Maybe just a little but it will pay off if you do this for every shelf. 

Add extra shelves if you have the space

Another thing I did to maximize space in my showcase is adding shelves. By the space I saved I was able to add two shelves into my showcase and this really helped to store a lot more than I could before. Thankfully the billy showcase is always available at Ikea so it is not hard to get extra shelves. Maybe a thing to consider before buying a new piece of furniture.

Decorate with the things you are organizing

I took all of the beautiful glassware I own out of my kitchen cabinet and added it to my showcase. I own a ton of pretty glasses and finally wanted to “decorate” my showcase with them. The colors are all complementing each other and look great. Now that I can see what I actually have I am sure I am not going to forget the beautiful pieces so often.

 

Before                                                                                                 After

       

 I personally love a neat and organized home and I am happily sharing my tips and tricks with you guys. With the pandemic still going strong I almost organized the whole house so more content regading this theme is to come.

Happy Monday you guys,

(post contains affiliate links/Werbung/Markennennung/Beitrag enthält Affiliate Links-not sponsored)

Easter is this week and I still can´t believe it. We just celebrated Emilia´s first birthday last weekend and with Easter rolling around it will be practically Summer the week after. How about that ? Time is flying.

So for this years table scape I wanted something a little more rustic than I had the other years. I incorporated lots of natural marterials and went with the colors green and camel which by the way look great together.

Using all natural materials for your table scape creates such an earthy and laid back scene that makes dining or in this case our Easter brunch even more laid back.

We are celebrating Easter very small this year as we will still be in lockdown. The never ending story.

I am going to link everything I used below if it is still available. 

Have you planned for Easter already ? Do you guys have kids? Are you hiding Easter baskets and eggs?

Green bunnies / Golden eggs / White ceramic egg set / napkins / napkin rings  / golden cutlery
