Like a Kid in a Toy Store...

I love kid parties. A lot.

I love to look at photos of real parties, look at photos of styled parties, read magazines about parties, read blogs about parties, shop all day for parties, tweet about parties, facebook comment about parties,  cruise on CPN all day long looking at parties and I love to search the ends of the Earth to find unique inspiration for parties. I dream about parties. I am a party loving girl. Period..

What makes me even more giddy than looking at parties pictures all day long is looking at parties that are created by party planners for their own children. There is something so personal and special about getting a peek into what a creative children's party planner does for her own kid. It is touching and so sweet to see how much thought and love a Mom will put into her own child's Little Shindig...

The ridiculously talented, Natalie, of Little Shindigs, threw a party for her little boy this past weekend and I am in love with every last deet.

Natalie's son, Luke, is a HUGE Toy Story fan..What's a vintage loving, party planning Mom to do? If you child loves a book, movie or special character, there are so many ways to get creative without looking like Party City exploded in your house. Nat did an amazing job. Gorgeous, whimsical and so much detail to gaze upon without being a commercialized assault on the senses.. And totally planned for the enjoyment of the birthday boy and his friends.

Here are are a few pictures of this brilliant and beautiful party. Head over to Natalie's blog to see the rest:)



ummm. Toy Bar? Cleva.

Come on, is this a fab sister, or what?

Adore the dessert table.
