Primary Dots Birthday Boy Party


Look what arrived in my inbox, thanks to Jill!
I love happy mail that includes cute birthday party photos and this little guy brought a big smile to my face.
You will just love these photos from mommy Jill and her Raleigh, NC photographer Jaime.

Jill writes, "Once I found http://www.polkadotbirthday.com/, I couldn't resist planning a polka dot party using bright, primary colors for Cole's 1st birthday party. The primary disco dots bib and custom "C" tee from Polka Dot Market were a perfect match. My husband designed Cole's polka dot birthday invitation and the amazing (and delicious!) birthday cake was made by Edible Art in Raleigh. Our polka dot birthday party was the perfect way to celebrate our little boy's big day. Thanks for featuring Cole's birthday party - we are forever fans of everything 'polka dot'!"

Look at her invitations - made by Cole's daddy!

Don't you just love how Jill pulled her theme together? Matching fabrics with the cake icing and balloons make everything so special.

Thank you so much, Jill for sharing your son's special day and photos with us.

Topiary Centerpieces for your Table


I've been meaning to share these with you - a $15.00 white silk flower topiary created by Lyndsey Keiser Designs!

I know how much you LOVE centerpiece ideas...this was created for a wedding, but can't you just see it for a polka dot party too?

This little white tree is just SCREAMING for some polka dot ribbon bows to make it complete. Tie a big bow around the pot, another bow at the base of the flower ball and throw some polka dot ribbon streamers in there pinned between the roses for good measure!


$15.00? What a steal. She has NINE left. But if you are nice, maybe (just maybe) Lyndsey will create one just for you.


Maybe a pink one? :)
