Animal Themed Birthday party

My mom threw the best birthdays. Even when I had chicken pox and had to cancel my party, she found the 3 kids that had already had them and invited them over for a little cake and ice cream. Well as it so happens, the mom of the cutest little boy ever also knows how to throw one heck of a party with this animal themed, crafting party. With photos by...

So I'm thrilled today that he is sharing a few tips for families out there looking to get the best possible family portraits. And as a bonus, he's sharing a Super 8 video of the family he shot...

Polka Dot Nursery

Though it may be totally weird to be over the top jealous of a baby, this girl right here is guilty. That polka dotted wallpaper? The fringed mobile? Can you really blame me? Sweet miss Ivy is the most on-trend baby in all the land! Seriously though. Captured by Katie Joyner Photography, there's a whole mess of lovely...

Girl’s Bedroom from Bijou and Boheme

Now that you've seen the entire, gorgeous Chicago home that Winnie & Christine sent our way, we wanted to break down the rooms that Christine of Bijou and Boheme designed. And as a bonus, get all of the too good to be true sources so that we could steal every last details. Which includes bedding from our favorite fellow blogger Biscuit (the product of...

Bright & Beautiful Nursery

I've yet to reach the baby stage in life, but there's no question that these nursery tours are doing a number on me. Though I've never been one to rush through life, I truly can't wait to have a little bundle of joy of my own. Especially if said bundle is half as sweet as baby Sophia. And her nursery? It's bright, fun and pretty much everything you'd ever want. Captured by...

We've been sitting on this little number for weeks now just waiting for the perfect opportunity to unveil it.

Veda’s Modern Nursery

Mondays are always infinitely better when our pages are sprinkled with squishy baby goodness. And this baby goodness is especially good because we have a really lovely, modern nursery tour to boot. It's bright, it's fun, and, captured by Sarah Kate, it can all be found RIGHT here. From Sarah.. Brianne Denton, of Blue Lotus, had a baby girl! Veda...

African Safari Themed Nursery

Just a few short days after booking a trip to South Africa, this adorable safari-themed nursery went and found its way into my inbox. Is it fate? It very well may be. Either way, it's cuteness overload and I just can't get enough. Captured by Sarah Kate, there's more adorableness in the gallery (note:...

DIY Superhero Halloween Costume

The things I would have done for this exact costume as a little girl. That cape? The stuff my childhood dreams were made of right there. And the best part? No sewing involved. I confidently give Jen Rodriguez and Mirelle Carmichael moms of the year for creating these getups. See all of this adorableness and more, ...

DIY Halloween Costume: Pastry Chef & Cake

Of all of the DIY costumes that we've shared this week - the hot air ballon, the sushi roll, the bubble bath duo - this one is the costume that produced bar none the most giggles. Probably because we handed the girls a pastry bag filled with...

DIY Halloween Costume: Bubble Bath

When I was little my mom used to make all of our Halloween costumes. And as I got older I begged her to let me buy one out of a bag just so that I could look like everyone else. I used to swear I would never say to my child "I could totally MAKE that." Fast forward 25 years and here we are. A mother who has fallen hopelessly in love with the wonder of handmade everything. And her daughter who is still young enough...

A Mid-Century Modern Inspired Nursery + Get the Look

Is it wrong to be jealous of a baby? Not only does Owen have the most piercing blue eyes, he also gets to grow up in one of the sweetest nurseries I think I've ever seen. I particularly love that it feels perfectly age appropriate, yet can easily grow as he does. Warm and cozy is the name of the game here and I'd happily make myself comfortable within the confines of this space. Captured by Angela Newton Roy Photography and designed by ...

DIY Halloween Costume: Sushi Roll

I'm not sure who's more in love with this costume, myself or Abby's sweet little lady, Audrey. One thing I know for sure is that I'm now officially obsessed with Halloween. Between little William's incredible hot air ballon attire and Audrey's sushi costume, I just don't think I can handle any more adorableness. To see all of the details...

DIY Halloween Costume: A Hot Air Balloon

Can you even begin to handle the cute? Because my mind is kind of exploding at this very second. I've said before that our in house DIYer is absolutely brilliant, but she has completely outdone herself this time. Now all I need to do is figure out how to transform this into an adult version. Captured by Ruth Eileen , if you only ever look at one gallery here on SMP Living...

Double Date Idea: Apple Picking

Confession: I've actually partaken in an apple picking double date. And before you judge, I can honestly say that it was SO much fun. Admittedly, the boys were a little skeptical at first. But once we arrived I swear they enjoyed it more than my girlfriend and I. We've since vowed to make double date apple picking a yearly activity and I can't recommend it highly enough. Styled by Sarah The Architect and captured by ...

A Sprinkle & Confetti Birthday Party from Sweet Style

Our sprinkles themed party is still one of my favourites to date (in fact, I loved it so much I even re-posted it on my personal blog way back when). So you can imagine my excitement when Indi's colourful birthday party fell into my lap. I mean, it's adorable overload. Is it not? Designed and...

A Nautical 2nd Birthday Party from Fleur de Lis

In my next life, I want to be a kid's party planner. Seriously! They're always fun, whimsical and there's truly no end to the ideas you could churn out. Plus, so long as there's some form of cake in attendance, I guarantee your mini client will be more than satisfied. Inspired by Fleur de Lis Events' sweet nautical 2nd birthday (hello whale cupcake toppers!), we thought it'd be fun to pull together a miniature version...

A Shabby Chic Nursery from Gracie Blue

You've been warned: this series of photos will, without a doubt, make you crave a teeny tiny newborn of your own. Those sweet baby cheeks? I just can't get enough. And just when I thought I was starting to tire of light grey interiors, this gorgeous nursery landed in my lap and I find myself falling in love all over. Captured by the incredible Gracie Blue Photography , you may want to get lost ...

Trash King Party from One Lovely Day

This next kids party? Obsessed. Seriously. I like to think that I'm of the creative mindset, but if I were given "garbage truck" as a party theme for my 4 year old child I honestly wouldn't even know where to begin. Luckily we have crazy talented folks like One Lovely Day who literally turned trash into treasure with this adorable affair. Captured by Kat Cvet, see...

If your Facebook newsfeed is anything like mine, everyone and their mothers seems to either be getting married, or expecting a new little bundle of love.

So, for all of you who happen to be in the same boat, I've taken the liberty to poll some of my favourite mama's and mama's-to-be to find out their must-haves when...
