A Father's Day Golf Themed PAR-TEE

If I ever asked my husband what he would prefer to do on Father's Day, the answer would always be "play golf".  So when my daughter was signed up for a 2 day golf tournament this Father's Day weekend, there could not be anything more he'd rather do than to caddy this event for her.  And since I didn't have any parties planned this same weekend, I couldn't think of anything more I'd rather do than throw a party to let him know not only what a great caddy he is but a great father and husband!

We invited our good friends over who also share our love for the game!  Our girls were paired together each day and it made for a wonderful weekend.   I prepped for the party all afternoon while they were golfing and loved surprising them with this hole in one party when they all arrived home!

Before I share the pics, I'm excited to tell you Bird's Party designed these printables and her party styled by Banner Events seen here was a great inspiration.  As soon as I saw it featured on HWTM, I knew it was perfect for our own Father's Day event!  If you haven't visited Bird's Party, be sure to stop by her blog and see all the creavity she has going on.  Her designs are amazing!

Our golf themed favor table was adorned with pictures of the girls and their caddies at past tournaments, trophy shots and action shots!   Each chair had a caddy bib for a chair cover. 

I loved naming the food.  My daughter the golfer helped me with a few of the names. 

Potato Chips = Chip Shots
Water Bottles = Water Hazards
Sandwiches = Club Sandwiches
Fruit = Fruit Wedges
Pretzel Rods = Flag Sticks
Donut Holes = Bucket of Balls

My favorite food item was of course the golf ball cake pops which I made myself.  Cake pops are my all time favorite dessert  and it only seemed appropriate to serve them as golf balls.  So I decided to try it myself if I could find a golf ball mold.  It was time consuming but well worth it.  I thought they turned out pretty good for my first try!

This was definitely a favorite of mine and held a special place in my heart!  It was a wonderful time with wonderful friends.  And to top it our girls placed 2nd and 3rd in the tournament that weekend!!

Garden Fairy Party

I can't believe I haven't written a post for almost 2 months!  I apologize to all my fans who have been anxiously sitting on the edge of their seats waiting for me (yes, that was sarcasm folks!).  I'm going to try to update as much as I can this week for you all!

I wanted to start by sharing a beautiful and colorful Garden Fairy Party.  I was thrilled with how it all came together but unfortunately wasn't able to get the pictures to show it.  But I will share what I was able to capture. 

(Thank you Pinkadot Shop for these perfect party printables!)

The girls Fairy tables were dressed with colorful fairy wings on each chair, and tutus and butterflies were a common theme throughout the party decor.  The girls had plenty of dress up clothes and accessories to flutter around in.  Activities included decorating your own fairy house and making magical pixie dust in their very own take home bottle!

And not to be left out were our little pirates, who had just as much fun as our fairies.  They sported their pirate patches and bandanas while having a ball decorating their own treasure chests and pirate swords.  

The pirate booty...

The fairy jewels...

It was a beautiful day, but in hindsight this is one party I would have loved to have had a professional photographer to capture all the details.  I am definitely NOT a jack of all trades.  But I hope you enjoyed the little bits I was able to show off!
