Believe it or not, I LOVE to host parties at my home and well, GO ALL OUT! Break out the glitter and turn on the glue gun because one of my guilty pleasures is crafting DIY projects for parties that I host.

With all of my wild and crazy ideas, I have to find ways to reign it in, so DIY party decor is one way that I have learned to use my resources and not break the bank. Don’t get me wrong, the supplies can add up, but once you have a good stock pile of craft supplies or leftover odds and ends from other events it does magically come together. Plus it’s fun!

Here are a few parties at 1426 that I have really enjoyed creating!



Groovy Baby Shower for one Cool Mama! 

Leah’s Moana Party: The desserts from this one were super cute and of course fit the theme! And her LEAH in Moana characters is still hanging in her bedroom.

Conor’s 1st Birthday Party: Barn yard bash (candy in the haystack, super fun, but not recommended indoors LOL!)
