One of my absolute favorite things to do is host! Making the people I love feel special on a big day, anniversary, birthday or at a baby shower truly account for some of my happiest moments! If you’ve been following along, you know I don’t usually write about things like this, but over the years, we have been inundated with emails/texts/inquiries about vendors I use for parties I throw (especially the one’s we have thrown for our kiddos, as posted on insta).
That being said, thanks for asking! I take NO credit for anything below—I attribute all the beautiful and appearance of “togetherness” to the Dream Team of party vendors and friends of mine. I highly recommend each of them for any soiree (especially for you Houston ladies).

Incredible photographer of the details and happiest moments! Having photos of our family memories is one of the most important things to me—I’m fortunate to have Wendi to make sure my kiddos are well documented. She also makes amazing photo books of the party!
I usually always have a face painter or balloon artist and a craft for the kids to do, too. My go-to’s are coloring, glitter, glue, stickers and props (on theme) for the kiddos to wear, but if you want to do something fun and different, cookie decorating is always a hit!
Thank you so much for your comments and kind words about these fun events. I hope this has inspired and helped you as you plan your future parties! I really couldn’t pull it all off without these talented women! For my visual ladies, I’m sorry for the photo overload, but here are some party ideas and examples from the different ones we’ve thrown over the years!
