A Ladybug Birthday Party

This weekend I attended my niece, Madelyn’s, first birthday party. I wanted to share pictures from it to celebrate her birthday and also to share my sister-in-law’s really cute ladybug themed birthday ideas.

First, is her adorable ladybug birthday shirt, tutu, and hair clip from Snuggles Of Love Etsy Shop. (Thanks again to Tami for working in a short time frame to get the order to us in time for the party! It was much appreciated!!)

Because it was a ladybug theme everyone was asked to wear red and black.

We enjoyed themed appetizers like these cute little ladybug crackers:

No party is complete without decorations and this party had plenty of red and black ladybug decor:

Red, white, and black spotted balloons

And of course there was the ladybug themed cake…

Happy First Birthday, Madelyn!! :)


Devon’s Bows Etsy Shop Review & Giveaway

One of my wonderful friends just opened up her etsy shop and I wanted to share it with all of you because her items are so cute! Her shop is called Devon’s Bows and here are some of my favorite items you can find in it:

4th of July Korker Hairbow

Alligator Prong Hairclips

Pair of Black and Pink Flower Hairbows

Large Sliver Flower Hairclip with Jeweled Center

Personalized Hairbow Holder

She also makes baby blankets, baby burp cloths, and fabric covered flip flops. Along with making adorable items I really love the fact that everything in her shop is inexpensive. I remember when my sister was little and she wore bows in her hair that cost $15-20 each but these ones are only $1.50-6 each. In my opinion Devon’s bows are cuter than the ones my sister used to wear and I love the patterns they come in. I am so thankful I don’t have a girl because if I did I would probably buy one in every color and design!

(Update 6/15: She just posted pictures of tutus!!)

So because she is my friend and she is awesome… Devon is giving away a $20 gift certificate to her shop to one very lucky Making Time For Mommy reader!!! Think of all the bows you can buy with that!

Birthday Shirt Review and Giveaway

On Wednesday Jacob had some of his friends over for a birthday playdate. Here are some pictures of Jacob from the celebration:

See the cute shirt he was wearing at the playdate? Mimi from Mimi’s Babies Etsy shop made it just for him. To customize the shirt I was able to choose what fabric I wanted, what number I wanted, and the name I wanted on the shirt. I loved having a special shirt for him to wear and it will make a great keepsake.

I’ve spotlighted Mimi’s Babies Etsy shop before and I am doing it again because I absolutely LOVE their handmade items. You can order one of these shirts from their shop or enter to win one here.
