Kiddo's Retro Modern Birthday and Dessert Table

Whew! Kiddo's 6th birthday has come and gone. Now that I'm rested up from all that designing, planning, and crafting, it's the perfect time to share some pics and projects. You know me, I had to DIY some cute stuff and design a dessert table to customize her bash, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money. So, I created an inexpensive photo booth backdrop, a retro modern dessert table backdrop, some milk bottles, and a colorful dance floor for breakdancing.

The fab Sydnee Bickett captured all of the lovely details, and I'm sharing tutorials for the projects on Momtastic. I also give my 5 Tips to Makeover a Bland Birthday Venue, which helped us save some money. Check that out, and be sure to swing by to learn to make your own:

These little diamond color block milk bottles were another easy, inexpensive DIY. I wrote up the tutorial for Momtastic. Swing by for the how-to.

Last year, I made a little cake for her. This year, we had a million (read: 14) kids in attendance, so cupcakes seemed like a more manageable option.

I danced as much as the kids, and this pic of my two girls dancing together makes me so happy!

Last-Minute Halloween Idea: DIY Monster Mouth Favors Pt II

It's two days until it's time to hit up the neighbors for sacks full of candy. That's right, friends, Halloween is almost here! You know I'm jazzed about that. Even if you haven't crafted a single Halloween project with your kids, it's not too late to get in on in some spooky fun. I made these DIY Monster Mouth Favors for Momtastic, and they're a breeze.

And, I know you're thinking, "Why is this project labeled as Part II?" Well, because you might want to check out the DIY Monster Mouth Favors I whipped up last year.

You know I love a good bonfire (find proof herehere, and here). But more than that, I love roasted marshmallows. I whipped up these DIY S'mores Truffles for Momtastic, and they're pretty fab. All the roasted goodness in a lunchbox-able size.

Search for Your Awesome Dessert Table + Party

Search for Your Awesome Dessert Table and Party with Confetti Pop, The Alison Show, and Bing | Sweet Tooth by Shauna Younge
I basically won the blogger lottery, when Bing recruited my Confetti Pop partner, Maddy, and I to co-host a party with Alison of The Alison Show for the Minneapolis leg of her Search for Your Awesome tour. We invited lots of great, local bloggers, business owners, and creatives and taught the in-person version of The Style Lab, our photo styling e-course. Here are few fab pics that photog Gene Oh shot of the festivities, including the dessert table I designed (Hello, macarons, gold flamingo cookies, and candy!) and Studio Fleurette's florals. Don't forget to check out the tote bags Maddy designed.

And, you know I had to grab a pic with my girl, Alanna. She helped us during the party and even stayed to clean up after this big, crazy bash. Thanks, giiiirl!
We had so much fun, and we always love any opportunity to teach our e-course, The Style Lab, in person. To all the attendees, thanks for joining us! And of course, none of it would be possible without Bing.
