Party On...Creative Party Place *Feature*

I'm sort of giddy right now {doesn't take much}!

The BLACK AND WHITE CHECKER party I did last Summer
for my Dad's 50th Birthday has been featured
on an amazing Party Idea website: Creative Party Place.

If you've never been to there, you're missing out! Creative Party Place features many unique and creative parties that
will fuel your imagination for the next party you host
.



And if you click HERE, you can see my black and white checkered party on THEIR site. I'm re-posting some of the fun party shots and links on my blog today as well!


ALSO!! A week later,
this posh little 50th party bash
for my Mom was featured on

Creative Party Place as well!



PS I have three boys, as most of you know, and am ALWAYS looking for party ideas for the Boy theme...if you have any excellent ideas, please share. :)

I love your party theme! Wonderful job!

Think I should enter my son's airplane theme party??

Leanne said...

Congratulations! I love the checkered theme and it was perfect for your dad. It looks amazing! I love the pink and black too for your mom. I better not let my parents see your site they might expect the same creativity from me.

Now that is one adorable party! Love all of your attention to detail, and those black and white checks are SOOOOO cute!

And the pink cake is adorable!

You'e GOOD!

Loved seeing your boys help you with the makeover. I had posted about that last night, and it really was fun to see! Your brother needs to come to my house and help US! LOL! You can come, too, if you bring those cute party things! ;-)

XO,

Sheila

You are awesome as usual. I love black gingham and have decorated with it in Bella's room (black gingham, red, and green). I love the pink and black party too - so pretty!

Lisa,
Thank you for stopping by and saying hello. I see you have been blessed by a loving family, your sons are precious! I have not heard of the Creative Party Place so will be checking it out ASAP. You did a beautiful job with your mother & father’s party decorations. They look so festive and pulled together. Also I grew up in Colorado in Littleton and went to CSU. It will always be home for me no matter how far I wander.

Congrats on being featured on creative party place.
Of course I loved the checkered pattern, I will have to store these ideas away. I can't wait to use these party themes for the next birthday. You are so right the boy theme parties are the hardest to think of. Have a great Monday!

Tracey said...

How exciting for you!! Both parties look fabulous Lisa!

I know, it's always tough coming up with ideas for the boy's parties...

Michelle said...

I love all your ideas!!!

DesignTies said...

Both party themes are great!! You really went all out with the decorations and food... and I bet you had a blast putting both parties together :-)

Congrats on being featured at Creative Party Place :-)

Mary Ellen (megardengal) said...

I had 2 boys and they could care less what I did as long as there was lots of good food! I would spend days getting ready for a party but they never even saw the decorations I think!

Hi L,

Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your kind words. I have just had a quick look through your blog and am coming back soon to read all your old posts. Love the post on your new walls! What a transformation.
Best wishes, NM.

I'm not surprised you were featured, it's awesome!

Diana said...

Awesome party themes! I'm in love with that pink and black!!!

Congratulations..............

cindy@cottage instincts said...

Congrats! What awesome ideas...everythings looks fabulous!

Ashley @ AshleysBusy said...

Hi Lisa! Thanks so much for your sweet compliments on my Halloween costumes. :)

Your blog is great! The black and white party is too cute and your bead board project turned out awesome. We don't have a backslash in our kitchen, so bead board is what I'd really like to install, just like Layla. Isn't she great?

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

I just love that pink cake with the black polka dots. I'm sure everyone had a wonderful time.

Jacky said...

Well, I don't have any ideas for boy parties (I'm the oldest of 5 girls, no brothers!), but I looove the pink and black party! It looks so chic and fun. =D

And Lisa, I wanted to say thanks SO much for following me at {This Time Around}! It really means soooo much to me. =)

Autumn said...

Fun party ideas! I'm always scoping out themes...especially because I'll have a bridal shower and a baby shower to plan in the coming months! I love Inchmark Journal (inchmark.squarespace.com) for kid's party ideas--she has a lovely aesthetic. There's a cool rocket themed party, as well as a baseball themed party.

Jenny said...

So cute! Love your saturated party themes. Just neat.

Kim said...

@cheapchichome. Hi L, Thanks for visiting my blog. I have a cute recipe for a boy cake, not necessary a whole theme. I'll dig it out and get it to you. It makes me very sad that you are doing "50" BD parties--that's my next one, but I'm not broadcasting that to anyone! ;)

Anonymous said...

You are truly talented lady. I LOVE the big ball of pink carnations. So Carrie Bradshaw!

Beth@The Stories of A to Z said...

Congrats on the feature! I can see why. You are well-deserving ;).

Blessings,
Beth

Jenny said...

Love the party theme.

Love your blog! Thanks for following mine. I'm looking forward to seeing your creativity so I'm following! I lived it Colorado for 2 years...I absolutely loved it! Wish I were there.

Dee said...

I have two boys and since we live in Colorado we did A LOT of cowboy, sledding, star wars movie marathon, and baseball fun! My boys are older now so they really aren't into it. So sad for me!

Dee said...

Thanks for visiting me too by the way!

Vanessa said...

Fun parties! I'm actually doing a race car/checkered flag for my little boy next month. Love the ideas!

Paula @ Organizing Tips For Moms said...

You did an awesome job decorating. I love it!

Sabby in Suburbia said...

Great job! I had a monkey party for my little man's 1st bday. Great theme for a boy and really fun to do. I found these cute blow up monkeys and hung them all over the house!
