Last year my son was obsessed with Jaws and this year it’s Star Wars. Since I was born in 1978, you can imagine how delighted I am…
I borrowed the super cool character sketches from Alecia Dawn Photography, who has been kind enough to share her designs on Pinterest since 2012. But of course, I had to make them my own to please my picky child…slightly different wording, only four of his favorite “guys” and enough space for a Starburst. 🙂
Feel free to borrow the image below for your own personal use…and if you’re a grown-up who wants to hand these out, Yoda best. Happy Love Day!

For the new year, I had the pleasure of styling and coordinating a Winter Wonderland party for little Giulia’s first birthday. Her parents had some wonderful ideas which included an artificial snow pit and a s’mores bar, and together, we decided that an evening filled with winter activities (indoors, of course) was the way to go. Being that we live in Chicago and we have been pummeled with snow this winter, that didn’t stop every guest, young and old, from enjoying the festively frosty itinerary we had planned for them. The sugar cookie decorating, bounce house, giant double slide, hilarious balloon artist, magical sweets table, s’mores, hot chocolate and a snow-pit made this the prettiest, most charming party ever for this sweet little girl’s big day.
With help from her big sister, Amira, Giulia blew out the candle on her first birthday cake. The cake was made by Alicia from Delish Cakes in Bloomingdale but the banner was designed and created by Pastiche Events.
