Wrapped some black and white damask fabric around Charlee's seat and tied some balloons on it, and mixed it right in with the decor!

We got all the little girls red boa's and had a photo session with "OLIVIA"

I think that she had a good time!

My and my little Cha-Cha! Love her to pieces!!!

Last June, (pre-blog) my precious little niece Charlee (aka...Cha-Cha, Chuckers, ChaCha-roni, just to mention a few of the nicknames I created for her) had her very first birthday party! My sister enlisted my help with the party planning and decorating. After giving it much thought, we came up with the cutest little OLIVIA THE PIG themed party! I have been waiting to post this closer to Valentine's Day because I think that Olivia would make a simply divine Valentines party theme also! If you have ever seen the Olivia cartoon, you know that the color theme is mostly black, white, and red. I decided to stick with that theme for Charlee's party and just used lots of variations of prints and fabrics in those colors. My love for polka dots runs deep, so of course I added polka dots whenever I had a chance. I made little treat buckets for the kids, tissue paper flowers to hang from the ceiling, cupcake toppers (they were a DIY pattern), centerpieces, a birthday banner, etc. My sister ordered Charlee a cute little pillowcase dress made out of OLIVIA fabric and she also hired an awesome photographer, Amanda Rowe of Visive Design, to capture all of the special moments on film. You can take a look at all the party pics here CHARLEE'S 1st BIRTHDAY

Monogrammed Discs With Ribbon Hangers

Hand Painted Throw Pillows
(Just the front panel of the pillow is pictured)

I'm so excited about this new project that I just had to share some sneak peeks! 
My fabulous neighbor, Carol Upton, and I have teamed up to design some
ahhh-mazing products that will be available exclusively through Preppy & Pink
in the very near future!!! All of these items are hand painted by Carol (she is pretty
much a rockstar when it comes to painting, if you can't tell).  These discs and throw
pillows are simply gorge and can be customized in variety of different colors and
patterns. They are very vintage and shabby chic and most definitely a MUST HAVE!
I can't wait to share more details and more products in the days ahead... Stay Tuned!!!

clairebella by Kathy Denness is one of my FAV preppy product lines.
They have so many personalized products to choose from and the colors and
prints are "totes" (totally) ahhh-dorable!!! Miss Gracie got this super cute lunchbox
 from Santa (by the way, Santa has fabulous taste), and the inside lid is a chalkboard
so "mommy" can leave her all kinds of sweet little notes. I am a post-it note princess
so the personalized notepad that I purchased for myself will come in
very handy also! They have mouse pads, coasters, glass cutting boards, platters, 
monogrammed cell phone cases, luggage tags, & on & on & on!!!!
You can check out all of these
products at THE SILVER GALLERY at Friendly Shopping Center!
Be sure and tell them Preppy & Pink sent ya!

I LOVE me some reality TV and I was so excited when I got these two FUN & FABULOUS books for Christmas! Even though my husband is not as thrilled with reality TV as I am, he was sweet enough to indulge my guilty pleasures and purchase this very "informative" and "educational" reading material for me!!! Totally great reads (fully equipped with fab fashion tips, life lessons, & not to mention some rockstar photographs)! BIBLE!!! (All you true Dash Dolls know what that means) ;)
