Cowboy-Themed S'mores Kits

I have super fun pictures to share with you guys today!  And not only are they fun but they involve s'mores!

As some of you may remember, last year I came up with my own version of the s'mores kit and shared the DIY on Valley & Co.'s beautiful blog.  I designed that kit specifically with weddings in mind since s'mores are such a big trend in weddings right now.  I also listed the kits in my shop and got a lot of great feedback from readers who loved the all-in-one idea.  Lucky for me, my first big order came a couple of months ago but my customer wasn't getting married...she was throwing a cowboy-themed birthday party for her one-year old son.  So I came up with a custom design for her, complete with western motif papers and red bandanas.  Basically it was the epitome of adorable!  

I was dying to have some pictures from the actual event, with the kits totally put together, so I politely asked my customer if she would be willing to share.  Thankful for us, she graciously allowed me to post these great shots which highlight the fabulous decor.  My customer did such an amazing job putting this party together because it is seriously rockin'!  Even though I'm 25 and a girl, I think this party would have been so much fun to attend.  

Enjoy the pictures!  They were taken by the talented Nicole Leone Photography.  And be sure to take note of my s'mores kits at the end!

A cow-spot cake...awesome!

Now I'm craving desserts.

Super sweet bunting.  I love the mix of patterns.

This party just got 1,000 times cooler...real horses were there!  The party was held on a ranch so the little kids got to enjoy pony rides.  I would have loved that when I was little.  My 5 year old self is a bit jealous.

Guest favors were jam jars and my s'mores kits.

Here are my kits!

The tags on my s'mores kits and a lot of the other paper goods were designed by Anders Ruff on Etsy.  They have great kits and custom printables for kids parties so if you have little ones, definitely check out their shop.  

So what do you think of this party?  This little boy is one lucky kid, right?  I would love to see the other parties that his talented mama puts together!  I had so much fun creating these and am so lucky to have great clients who not only encourage my own creativity but who also allow me to share in their party/wedding-planning fun.  

Happy Wednesday!

Valley and Co Guest Blogger

Happy Friday everyone!  I have a great DIY holiday project to show you today but you'll have to head on over to Valley and Co to check it out.  Aleah and Nick Valley, the amazingly talented duo behind Valley and Co, were in need of some guest bloggers this week and I was so happy to be able to help them out with a post.  I created a mini all-in-one s'mores kit that is perfect for the holidays (or a winter wedding) and is quick and easy to put together.  Make a few of them and hand out as favors after a holiday party or use as stocking stuffers for friends and family.  Or even better, make one and gift it to yourself.  Even though the s'mores are mini, they are still delicious! 

Here are a couple of teaser pictures but make sure to check out the full post here to see the whole tutorial.  And don't forget to leave Aleah and Nick some love...they are the sweetest!  I can't thank them enough for having me today and for their overall kindness and support that they have given me here on my blog and on Twitter.  It is people like them that make me feel so welcome in this wedding blogging community.  Thanks A + N!!
