I am finally coming around to share the details of our little girl back in November. But shortly after the holiday craziness started and we had been pretty sick the majority of December.

Anyways let´s start with Emilia´s baptism. It was as girly as can be. I had everything – from the cake to the flowers, the candles and the party favors in a light pink shade. I was fulfilling my wildest girl dreams and it looked amazing. You can read all about Emilia´s Baptism here.

For Helena´s baptism I wanted eucalyptus to be the main plant and color. I always start with the invitations with a color and theme I would like. But you can read more about How I plan Family Festivities here.

My MIL made the flower bouquets and to be honest these are the most beautiful I have ever seen. The really put a florists work to shame. I wanted to go big with 5 flower bouquets cause flower elevate the table decor much more than anyhting else. Of course sequins shouldn´t be missed when I am hosting so I got these pretty emerald table runner from etsy. 

The hardware around like white etagérès, the cupckae stand and the golden candle holder are all from amazon and frequently used in our home.

Cake and cupcakes have been so so good. I always order them from a café called Orlando di´Lassi in Regensburg. I will never go back cause the inside tastes as good as the outside looks.

The next family party I am planing is Emilia´s birthday, but it will be a little harder this year cause I can not pick the theme I would like. We´ll see. 



How to store (Christmas) Cards and Photos…

The older I get the more I am all about making and keeping memories especially wth my two little children. Time is really moving fast and I want to capture as much as possible and that means many more pictures in the future. I am a paper girl. I need a planner to write in cause appointments on my phone just don´t count for me. Same with pictures. They are forgotten very soon if I don´t sort through them and print some from time to time cause I won´t go back years and thousands of phots to look at them. So photo boxes come in very handy. 

How I store our Photos

We have a ton of photos, especially after moving in together years ago we have all of our childhood photos to sort through as well. We have photos from our wedding, from vacation, festivities and of course our children. 


How I store our Christmas Cards

Cards usually come in lots of different sizes and finding a cute storage box to fit them all is quite the task so I am going with Katey McFarlan´s tip and store all of our Christmas cards and cards we get from friends and family on these little rings. They are super easy to use. I got a box of 50 (will probably last forever) for a few Euro and they really made my life easier. You just use a perforator and punch a little whole into the card and put it onto the ring and you are done. 




Where to get your personalized planner for 2023…

I love a good planner – just ask my husband he can tell you all about it!! In fact I am a little planner and notebook addicted so I might have quite the collection. Since I have so many pretty pieces I have gotten a little picky over time but that is not a bad thing if you ask me. You are commiting a full year to your planner so you should at least like it and be content with it.

I have had an Erin Condren planner I loved so so much in the past but it is annoying to get one cause the delivery time is very long (Erin Condren is from the US) and the customs charges another fee plus extra taxes.

So my planner is from a company called Persönlicher Kalender. You can personalize every last bit of it. The colors, the layout, the inlay, quotes and dates, holidays and weather. You can get seperats papers for training, budgeting, meal planning, coloring, Sudoku and so on and so on…. 

I have choosen the beige colored hardcover for the planner which can be reused year after year so you just have to buy new inlets. The site also offers a huge amount of cute sticker sets as well as tons of pens and pencils.

Fall just is the best of all season and I might have Emilia influenced as much that she thinks so too cause everytime we pass lots of fallen leaves she says “Horray, it is Fall here”. 

The weather is still perfect here and was through all of October that we were able to do so many things outside. I wanted to recap some things which would work as a great list as well for you guys to give you some ideas on what to do with your toddler.

Fall Activities for your Toddler
