Ollie's Trolls 3rd Birthday

Last month we celebrated Ollie's 3rd birthday. I went a little crazy and turned our house into a Trolls wonderland. I didn't want to hit Party City and buy everything in the Poppy section, so I decided to get creative. Do you remember my mood board? I cut yards and yards and yards felt garlands and made my first ever balloon installation and even paper mached a cloud balloon. Anika Fatouros captured the wild party.

I set up a little picnic table for the kids with a paper mache Trolls hill centerpiece.

I DIYed troll hair and I gathered goodies for the kiddos to decorate Trolls masks using the pattern I found here

Bachelor Finale Watch Party!

It may be March Madness season, but we’re also approaching my personal Super Bowl, The Bachelor finale.  At I Love Love Events we’re not shy to admit that The Bachelor is our guilty pleasure, and just like post football season, when Sundays seem a little empty, that’s how I feel about Mondays without Nick Viall.  The Bachelor ratings are at an all-time high and participation of Bachelor Fantasy Leagues growing, and with all this love for our favorite show, we thought it was time we threw the ultimate Bachelor finale viewing party.  You too can add some excitement to next Monday night with inspiration from our Bachelor Finale Viewing party.

Bachelor Finale Watch Party

This event is one part Galentine’s day celebration and one part Super Bowl Party with lots and lots of red roses of course.  To bring the vision to life we hit the flower market and bought up all the red and pink long-stem roses.  We created a garland of roses to set the backdrop and made the arrangements ourselves mixing in spray roses, and greenery to modernize the classic flower.  The best details weren’t in the flower arrangements though, they were in the hand-made buttons we created with our guest’s all-time favorite Bachelors (mine are Ben Higgins and Bob Guiney – old school).  And, the night wouldn't be complete without a little game.  We teamed up with our calligraphy pal, Lana’s Lettering and created Bachelor Finale Bingo game, to create, which you can download for free by signing up for our newsletter!

Since this celebration was also one part Super Bowl, we needed some good food and drinks.  We opted for a pretty cheese plate, popcorn and other easy snacks and a simple cake covered in rose petals.  Not only will your guests accept your rose, but they will also accept your rosè, so be sure to stock up.  We supplied both regular and sparkling as well as a rosy cocktail with vodka, sparkling water, honey, pomegranate juice and topped with a red rose.
