How many of you saved and actually ate the top tier of your wedding cake on your first anniversary? We did freeze our's but I have to admit, we didn't eat it. This couple not only thawed their's out, but even used their original cake toppers, the owl salt and pepper shakers, and monogrammed napkins left over from their reception to create the perfect table setting to celebrate their first anniversary! The crest you see positioned with the owls was inspired by the crest design from their "Save the Date." Thanks to the bride and photographer, Teresa Daniel, from Memphis' Suite Like Tee Photography for sharing the ideas and photos.

Happy Fri-yay! How many of you are looking forward to the Super Bowl? Or should I ask how many of you are looking forward to the Super Bowl parties?! We're going to be venturing out to a friend's bar to watch it, so unfortunately I won't have a reason to cook up anything, but it should be a fun night.

I made it out to a few stores this past week. This first find is from Cost Plus World Market. I am so happy to have this store nearby. I grew up in New York, where you can find ANYTHING. When I moved to Colorado it was tough to find many of the biscotti and other treats I enjoyed growing up in a very traditional Italian family. Thankfully World Market carries some of them so I don't get too homesick! When I stopped in there this week I found this fun pasta for Valentine's Day. I am really hoping the pasta hearts don't break while they cook. My girls will love this and will make a fun surprise for them. Oh yea, and the hubby too!
Do your kids love to make slime? Mine love it, and it's been a battle to contain their supplies. I found this great cart at Michaels for $30 and it fits their glues, glitters and containers in one place. The color goes well in their "homework room." Best of all, they can roll it into the kitchen, which is the only place in the house they are allowed to make slime. The cart is great to hold anything from craft supplies to spices! It seems like Ikea sells a similar cart because I came across this blog post offering 30 different ways to use such a cart!
Did you find any great products this week?!

Poor Cassie could barely accept that she was turning 30. What did she want to do to commemorate the event? She told Texas photographer, Brit Nicole, that she wanted to rekindle a bit of her youth with–not a cake smash–but (wait for it...) a taco smash! Only problem was tacos give her a little bit of a tummy ache. So the fiesta included wine, tacos and Pepto Bismol! Although 30 is way behind me, I totally get it. Cassie, I hope you enjoyed every bit of your personal fiesta!

I love it when my Facebook friends are out and about and will snap a photo of something they see in-store that they feel is a great deal or product find. It's such a help! That's what I'm hoping to do here by posting some of the party-related items I find when I'm out and about. The frequency will really depend on how often I find share-worthy items, but I hope you'll find this helpful.

If you follow me on Facebook, then you may have seen this first find I saw at Sam's Club. These tubes of gumballs are perfect for Valentine's Day. You get 24 tubes for only $9.98! This is on our radar as a strong possibility for my girls to give out to their friends this year.
Next, did any of you see these white ceramic cake/cupcake holders at Target? The small version is $1. The larger version is $5. I really do favor white tableware because you can customize them to any color palette just by hanging some pom poms, tassels or ribbon around them. These can also be used as candle holders.
Until next time!

Happy New Year! I know that is greatly (and embarrassingly) overdue. Y'see, I've been doing a lot of thinking about the blog over the last month or so; thinking about how I can make it better or honestly, figuring out how to modify it to keep myself motivated. I do feel like I've come up with a few ideas. I just have to start implementing them. But, here is one party, submitted by photographer Linda Murri, that as a Colorado resident got me pretty excited! This New Year's Eve soiree was hosted by Broncos player, Emmanuel Sanders. Asked to dress in white attire, guests enjoyed dancing, champagne and even rooftop s'mores – all in an elegant, purple-lit setting. When you look through the photos, notice that there are a lot of ideas you can easily replicate at home: the lighted marquee letters, glittery table coverings and hurricane candle centerpieces. I would love to figure out a way to copy that dress of champagne flutes! Make sure to check out the list of participating vendors at the bottom.
