We have a new way of celebrating these days! One thing that has not changed is keeping events special for my boys’ birthdays and other celebrations. Keeping celebrations special means thinking outside of the box and being very creative. I am excited to share and guide you through the process of hosting a virtual party. Oh, and did I mention our theme this year was Halloween since my son’s birthday is in October?
My son requested a magic party this year, and we came to the conclusion that going to a magic show would be the most magical! After doing a quick google search, we found the fun Outta Control Magical Dinner Show at WonderWorks Orlando. The dinner was provided, my house would remain clean, and entertainment would be sublime. This party would give me much more free time than a typical Nikki party; however, I wanted to bring the WOW factor. The details below will show you how we elevated this party and made it unique.
Have you often admired these gorgeous tarts on Instagram and Pinterest made into anything from hearts, numbers, and monograms?

Succulents are all the rage right now and it’s no wonder because they are not only beautiful but also forgiving! Many of the succulent varieties come in many colors and some even look like flowers. This girl loves flowers, but succulents will outlive flowers every time. Let us show you how to put together a succulent box and we’ll also show you some really cool tips and tricks about these super cool plants.
Flowers bring so much joy to everyone. Why not host a party with a flower theme? Recently, we launched our new flower arranging business with Alice’s Table so I knew that I wanted to have a flower-themed buffet table. We will walk you through how to put this buffet together, show you where to find the recipes, and how to make a stunning cupcake bouquet!
Teacher Appreciation day was on our horizon, and I wanted to do something special for my boys’ teachers. I always feel happier around flowers and thought it would also brighten the teachers’ days to have some lovely flowers. When I thought about the vase, I wanted to do something that was not only personalized with a monogram but also reflected the teachers’ favorite color of pink. Discover how to easily make these vases for someone special or keep it around to decorate your own home.
Why not try your hand at flower arranging so you can get professional results at home for a fraction of the cost. I have expensive taste in flowers so in order to indulge my need for luxurious flower arrangements, I knew I had to teach myself how to make these creations. I’d love to show you how to easily recreate gorgeous floral bouquets in your home.
After reading Marie Kondo’s The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, we have gone a little organizing-crazy around our house! It always drove me bonkers when I purchased an item at the grocery store only to find that I already had it at home. Now everything in the kitchen has a home and I can immediately track it down. Each time I open up the cabinet, pantry, or refrigerator, the angels sing and I do feel that sense of joy. I would love to help you achieve the pantry that wows, and I will show you how!
Our number one tip for getting the most bang for your buck when decorating a party would be to make your own balloon garland! We received so many compliments on our balloon garland from our Toy Story post that I knew it was essential for us to write a step-by-step guide that illustrated how to assemble a balloon garland. You will not believe how easy and inexpensive this project is! Your guests will gasp when then see it!
What is the ultimate theatre and art experience? The experience you can eat!! On our recent trip to Barcelona, we splurged by partaking in a 23 course sensory dining experience. Ok, I know what you’re thinking… how on earth can you eat 23 courses in one setting? Some courses were one or two bites, and each course was paced in a comfortable manner. Our three hour meal flew by just as if we were watching a highly-trained Broadway play. If you’re a real food nerd like me, you have heard of place called El Bulli. The chefs at Disfrutar used to work at El Bulli (once ranked #1 restaurant in the world). El Bulli has now closed its doors, but lucky for us, some of its chefs opened Disfrutar! In a city filled with top-notch restaurants, Disfrutar has been ranked #18 in the world!
