Inspired by my urge to throw Leyna across the room last night after she head butted me in the nose. Hard. On purpose. Like a ninja… only cuter.
I came up with the wintery rainbow theme for Leyna’s party after falling in love with all the beautiful rainbow parties I’ve seen online the last year. I loved the idea of brightening up a party in the middle of winter with lots of fun colors. I hired Charlotte from The Paper Cupcake to design […]
Leyna’s birthday party is tomorrow! And we all know what that means… I’m about to LOSE MY MIND. We’re having it at our house because, why not?
