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.
