Ok chicks…need a quick, easy and delicious recipe for your next shindig?  Well, this one is straight from my mama’s kitchen and happens to taste just like the awesome chicken salad you can buy at Costco.  We just served it at Shannon’s baby shower 2 weeks ago and it was a HIT!!

No worries…baby shower photos coming soon, but in the meantime…here is FREE recipe download to hold you over (:

hmmm…maybe we should call it “Fresh Chick Chicken Salad?”  Enjoy!!  x0x0~rebecca

I am a total lush for some milk and cookies…especially when it involves an oh-so-cute party!!  This is a real party that was put on by one of my amazing customers for her gorgeous daughter Berkley.  Here is the invite we came up with along with some other fabulous details from her daughter’s special day.

I am totally loving this color scheme!!

How about a little fireplace for your Friday?  Now, we will not be turning it on since we have reached the 90 degree mark in Phoenix, but here it is…all dressed up in her spring decor (;  Oh, yes…of course I had some other plans but I tuckered out pretty quickly and this is what I was left with.  You get the idea, a little Target…a little Homegoods and I’m done!!  Hope you all have  a great weekend!!  xoxo~rebecca

So with Easter just around the corner it was time to set up a little playdate photoshoot.  We wanted to set up a kid-sized, budget-friendly dessert table perfect to get a “jump” start into spring!  The locale?  My backyard, the budget?  Minimal…so, I picked this location because of the natural, casual setting.  I loved how the lemons were starting to come in on the tree  so I thought it would be the perfect backdrop for a fun playdate setting.  Now, when planning for a small playdate…you don’t need much…we went with cupcakes & candy!!!  YUM!!!  What more do you need??  This look was achieved with things I already had that I pulled from my holiday fireplace decor, some newly designed printables, fabric scraps (you may recognize the aqua and lime damask fabric from Blake’s Winter Candyland), a fabulous coordinating banner and ribbon garland from Nancy of A to Zebra Celebrations, candy and some cupcakes from a local bakery.  Underneath the layered fabrics were tables from my playroom…just the right height for the kiddos to grab a treat!!

I thought mixing the fabric patterns kept thing a little less serious and set the tone for a playful table set-up.  Together, we styled this simple, yet oh-so-cute table that that is sure to get things-a-hoppin’

Once things were set up, Nancy dressed her beautiful girlies up in ah-dorable t-shirts by Whimsy Tots Boutique, gorgeous bracelets from 3 Little Birds Boutique, and darling hairbows by Fairy Dust Bows.

Also among the decor was a fun & festive sign from Our Hobby To Your Home.  For a cute little favor, small jars were filled with peanut m&m’s, then I embellished the jars with printables attached with coordinating twine from The Twinery.

Here is a pic from my fireplace before snagging stuff for the photoshoot (;  Look familiar??  I got all of this stuff from Target!!  Oh, how I love that place!!  The decorative porcelain jars are from Homegoods.

Here is a close ups on some of the awseome products from some amazing vendors

So, there it is…a fun, easy and budget friendly playdate!  Happy Spring!!

Sorry chicks…we have been a little M-I-A lately and have been a’slackin on the posting scene.  I have had to keep my late nights to quite the minimum.  I am usually up until the wee hours of the morning but we just found out we are expecting bebe #3 and I am sooo TIRED!!!  So I am lucky if I make it past 9:30!!!  Anyways…me being preggers may be the inspiration for this post… no…actually I was chill-laxin on Facebook and saw this link for Shop Sweet Lulu via Pizzazzerie and was immediately inspired.  Not to mention I may have had a small craving for ice cream (;  How cute are these ice cream cups fully equipped with wooden spoons…weeeeee-heeee…totally LOVE!!


So how could I pass up all this cuteness?  I had to design an invite that would be the perfect way to kick off your very own ice cream par’te!!!

Hope you all had a great week!!  Fun stuff coming SOON!!!! xoxo~rebecca

I’m always looking for fun and creative ideas to add some pizzazz to any party. So when I came across these super simple ideas using cupcake liners, I had to share.
