Stylish Kids’ Parties Book & Giveaway!

I am so very excited to be shar­ing details of the brand-spankin’ new book Styl­ish Kids’ Par­ties  by Kelly Lyden from The Party Dress and WH Host­ess! I have been so inspired by Kelly’s par­ties and prod­ucts and was incred­i­bly hon­ored to have con­tributed to The Party Dress Mag­a­zine in past issues, inclu­sive of my Easter Bunny Egg Hunt and Ahoy, Baby! par­ties. When I heard she was writ­ing a book about plan­ning and throw­ing kids’ cel­e­bra­tions, I was absolutely ecstatic!

In addi­tion to shar­ing more details regard­ing the book’s over­all con­tents, I’m thrilled to pro­vide you with a sneak peek of the Baby Chic Baby Shower chap­ter {which inci­den­tally also fea­tures some of my fon­dant work}, along with a super fun giveaway!

Excerpt from Chap­ter 1: Baby Chic Baby Shower

The antic­i­pa­tion of a new baby is one of life’s great­est joys and deserves to be cel­e­brated in style. Although there are many pop­u­lar themes for mod­ern baby show­ers, I believe you can throw a chic party that reflects the mama-to-be’s design aes­thetic, as well as incor­po­rate clas­sic baby icons.

When it came time to throw my sister’s baby shower, I decided to do just that. I used a fresh color palette of aqua blue and coral, mixed with a touch of shim­mer and clas­sic baby items: rat­tles, baby blocks and storks. With a few sim­ple do-it-yourself craft projects, one spec­tac­u­lar dessert table and the per­fect bal­ance of mod­ern and clas­sic ideas, this party has ideas that you could incor­po­rate into any baby shower, includ­ing my recipe for Cake Pop Rattles!

Baby Chic Cupcakes

I wanted to cre­ate a stun­ning dessert table that would not only serves as a beau­ti­ful focal point for the party, but also offer guests sweet treats to enjoy at the party or to bring home with them. I find that bite-size desserts are best, so guests can try more than one, so I included mini lemon tarts, cake pops and brownie bites, per­son­al­ized sugar cook­ies and cup­cakes topped with dar­ling fon­dant top­pers with tiny baby shoes on them.
