Easter Kids Brunch as Seen on Yum Food and Fun for Kids Magazine

I styled this Easter Kids Brunch last year for Yum and Food for Kids Magazine. Their Easter issue is out and full of amazing ideas!! And with Easter round the corner, I thought I'd share all the details here on the blog with tips and trick on how you can re-create it at home.
It's a very simple and super colorful table that will wow your little bunnies! But these unique ideas can also be used for the family table too, simply replace the disposable tableware with fancier china.

Late last year, I was invited to take part in a  fun craft challenge for All You Magazine. It'd been a while since I touched needle and thread, but it's like riding a bike it seems. You never forget it! ;)

This was a really a fun project and was really nice to get back to my sewing roots. 

Only a few hours left to vote, so pretty please stop by their Facebook page and vote for the Penguin? You'll know what I mean when you see it ;)

PRESS: Pottery Barn & Homespun Magazine

October has started, and promises to be like a crazy whirlwind. But when the work I do for the blog gets shared or feature in the press, it more than makes up for the long hours and hard work. Not only because it opens up other business avenues and a chance to connect with a new audience, but also because someone, somewhere, has also liked what you did. And that my friends, is totally priceless! :)

Summer Birthday Party Ideas for Red River and Rio Grande Magazines!

I love working on editorials for printed press. There's nothing like seeing one's work in print. I think the smell of the pages also has a part to play in it. Yes, I unashamedly 'sniff' my work! :D

Anyways, you can imagine my delight when the editors of Rio Grande and Red River Family Magazine got in touch for another collaborative work for their July issue. We had worked together before, but this time they were going to feature three of our parties! Woo-Hoo!

Both mag are printed and also available for you to read online. Check out all the details below:

A Penguin Inspired Black, White and Yellow Chic Christmas Kids Table with Free Printables

The last of our three Kids' Holiday Tables was inspired by cute penguins, so naturally the color scheme was black and white, with splashes of bright yellow to warm things up!

I wanted to create a more sophisticated and modern looking table, whilst keeping the styling fun for the kids - A good balance for those who love to entertain in style, even for little guests! ;)
