AIDEN’S “KEEP SOARING HIGH” 3RD BDAY PARTY

I cannot believe it has taken me over eight months to post my son’s 3rd birthday party from August 11, 2012.  This is proof that the book and the move has taken a toll on me.

Well, better late than never :) Enjoy!

This celebrations was far more than just another birthday party, it was a graduation party as well per say. Meaning, we were celebrating the successful completion a full year of speech and applied behavior analysis therapy. He worked so hard to learn new things, learn to talk and modify his behavior and at times I couldn’t bear to see him struggle and become upset day after day, but we knew it was for his best. As the end of his therapy term neared, which coincidentally would be right at his 3rd birthday, it was clear to us he deserved a big party complete with sweets, piñatas, family and friends!

THE PARTY WITH AMY LOCURTO

Rainbow-Butterfly-pops-The Marshmallow Studio

A few weeks ago, you guys might remember me talking about a super cool secret project I was making pops for. I shared a few sneak peek photos on my Instagram profile. Then a couple of weeks ago I was able to share what the big mystery was all about and who and what they were for.

I had made marshmallow flowers and butterflies to match Amy Locurto’s new Rainbow Party Collection from her new line with Pebbles, Inc.  She was having a booth at the 2013 Craft and Hobby Association Winter Tradeshow and wanted to display them in her booth along her beautiful new bright paper goods. Of course I was honored she asked me and jumped right into this opportunity. It’s not everyday someone you totally admire asks you for something.

Here are a few screen shots I saved from other’s posts:

HAPPY HALLOWEEN MARSHMALLOW PUMPKIN

During my son’s preschool teacher-parent conference his teachers asked me what did a “marshmallow designer” do?? They were intrigued after seeing my occupation listed on the school records. I smiled and said “I make all kinds of stuff with marshmallows!” That only seemed to have fueled their curiosity even more. They immediately asked me if I’d like to bring in something to their upcoming Halloween party. Well you guys know me…. I love challenges and having an excuse to play with marshmallows :)

ROMANTIC BRIDAL SHOWER – OUR MINI WEDDING CAKES IN ACTION

I (digitally) met Tori from Thoughtfully Simple almost a year back and finally had a change to meet her in person during the San Diego Operation Shower event. Let me tell you, she is the sweetest person ever. We became instant friends :)

A few months later she told me she was putting together a bridal shower for her soon-to-be sister-in-law. I was ecstatic to finally have a chance to with her. The carefully described the feel she was going for and the colors she was incorporating, it all sounded wonderful and I knew it’d come together perfectly. When I finally saw the photos on Celebrations at Home blog, I was blown away. She did such a great job and every little detail was beautiful.

You can see more photos here and here.
