It's ALMOST here!!!!! The Queen Bee Market is only two days away! If you are in Southern California you HAVE to come Downtown to enjoy the Queen Bee Market. 50 of the most amazing handmade vendors will set up their 'Oh So Cute' and incredibly unique booths to sell their most amazing handmade items. Everything you can ask for from homegoods, vintage items, womens-kids-mens-baby clothing, photography, art, jewelry, every kind of accessory, AND SOOOO MUCH MORE!!!! The Queen Bee is one of my favorite markets to attend. The talent at this market is amazing and gets better every show! The effort and creativity the vendors put into their booths is worth seeing in itself. This was the Baby J booth at the last show in May....we have re-vamped and have a slightly new showcase, so you must come see.




This is the last of the summer product and then we will be introducing our Winter Line....which is looking fantastic, I might say :) So come check out the Summer dresses, onsies, sunhats, flower clips, headbands, tutu's and much more.

Monster Bash!!

We have been BUSY!!! And up to our eyeballs in MONSTERS!!!
It already came and went - WAY TO FAST!!! My littlest baby turned 1....already! Tear in my eye :( But we threw him the biggest Monster Bash of the year. And let me tell you it is the last Party I wanna plan in a looooong time, and I mean that in the sweetest way possible :)






But seriously...procrastination and perfectionism don't mix well. My loving sweetheart husband and best friends in the world were helping till 4am, finishing decorations, food, deserts, cleaning and everything in between to throw the perfect party for my little Jace!! Thats true love.
We started with the handmade invites....Super easy and cheap :) Perfect because our guestlist was 74 people!!!! How to: take a regular sheet of felt (8 1/2X11) cut in four equal rectangles, cut a piece of cardstock the same so they are same size as the felts. Glue cardstock (using Felt glue so it doesn't leak through the felt, sold at Michaels), After it dried I cut freehand monster shapes, cut scrap pieces for the mouths and teeth and glued on those with the felt glue, added google eyes because everything is funner with google eyes and pom pom noses :) I printed out the party info on regular paper and glued that on last....Done....mail out right away! (It will take a little extra in postage, not much but if you add the pom pom noses keep that in mind so they don't come back to you...if you don't wanna pay the extra use flat scraps for the noses :)




And then there was the deserts.....cake pops...and more cake pops!!! I loooove cake pops....and loved making them....until I got to about 150 cakepops and then I decided I never wanted to see another cake pop again in my life!!! My mistake though....no matter how many people you have at your party they will never eat all 150 cakepops! So I think it would be best to make only 1 per guest, considering 60 people came and I took home about 130!!! And they were good too! I promise! Recipe to come soon - you can try them for yourself :)




These were fun! I found these GIGANTIC Marshmallows at CVS and Albertsons to make Candied Mallows for everyone to take home. After they dried I used candy writer from DUFF from Michaels baking section to make monster faces - loved it!! Note: Keep out of the sun! I found these cute pots at Michaels for $2.49, stuffed a styrofoam inside and stuck all my cake pops inside! The monster treat bags, plates, bowls and napkins were found at Target. They also have a super cute Green Monster Pinata!
Wrapped the Candied Mallows in plastic wraps (found at Michaels-baking section) tied with curly ribbon and sent home with everyone that came :) Monster Balls, Monster Rubber Duckies, Monster Pop Ups, Monster Tattoos all found at Oriental Trading. You can find every theme and party supply there!!! The kids loved them all as prizes and to take home...
Ray made this Monster Melon - Super Easy and Fun!!! A Must-Have at every Monster Party :)



Monster Toss!!! Hubby made this too!! So handy in the kitchen and with the tools, LOVE IT!! Found a Monster pic and sawed a piece of wood to make the monster toss game...Jace is Monster tossing in this picture. After Monster Toss we played pin the nose on the Monster (thats what those red dots are :) Two games in one!! AND a really great photo prop as well!

**He lost his legs so if you make one make sure its a flat bottom or made with REALLY thick legs :)










And look how happy it all made my Little Man!!!

Crown is from Target $2.99 and Every party no matter what the theme is needs Polka Dot Balloons!!!! (Partyland)



HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!


Jace's smash Cake - Came from Albertons! Its the Small Cookie Monster Cake, but re-done with green horns and buck teeth, amazing and only $7.95!!! HE LOVED IT!



Clean up was a Good Time.....and it was a great party!!!


My party planning tip for everyone: If you have not discovered Pinterest you need to right this second. It is an amazing site for not only party ideas, but recipes, decor, fashion, photography and so much more!!
