I’m dreaming of a bunny brunch and an Easter egg hunt! You can’t go wrong with these pretty pastels, fresh blooms and a waffle bar. The little people in your life will love it. This theme could easily be carried out for a baby shower, school function, birthday or a bunny themed Easter gathering.

There is no shortage of party ideas when it comes to Spring affairs. A simple search of “bunny birthdays” will yield a plethora of fun ideas. What I like best about this theme is that it can be done on a dime if you’re willing to DIY some of it yourself. Even the coconut cake looks easy enough for me to attempt. My ambition in the kitchen is lacking….ask anyone who knows me. And those tulips! Hoppy trails to all of you!

Exchanging Valentines was the highlight of most Valentine’s Day parties or at least it was when I was in grade school. Many kidlets work hard at personalizing each card, writing a special note, and even some get creative and make their cards from scratch but if you have run out of time or your child isn’t that interested in DIYing his own, you can always check out my shop for some predesigned options. Simply print and cut; no assembly or writing needed.

If you simply didn’t have time to get your holiday cards out this year, you can send some personalized v-day cards to make up for that. Who doesn’t LOVE some extra warm fuzzies in the blah winter months?!?! You can purchase all of these designs and more in the Spruce & Willow etsy shop!

This past month has been a whirlwind. My shop has been busier than ever and I’m forever grateful that you keep supporting me. But I noticed something…..the orders that are pouring in every single day are 99% for boys. While I love seeing all of those unique boys names, it became obvious that I am lacking some beautiful designs for your sweet little girls. Those who know me probably aren’t surprised. I grew up with brothers, I live in a house full of boys and for most of my childhood I was considered a tomboy. I suppose I still draw my inspiration from the great outdoors and all things boy. I love woodsy, neutral colors, natural textures and simplicity. The style boards below are a true representation of me. Muted colors, fun patterns and nature references. Cheers!

I’m picturing a black and white theme with hints of woodsy inspired by a cute little bear cub. I know there are tons of parents out there who have either a.) named their child Bear or b.) have given them this nickname. And if you haven’t done either (like us), it’s still super cute and gender neutral which means it could be a perfect baby shower theme as well! I have no doubt this is one of the easier parties to throw together. There’s never a shortage of anything bear. Cooler months are upon us (well, most of us) and I think this would be a perfect fit for a Fall celebration. Before those bears hunker down for winter, of course.
