Kate Spade Bridal Shower and More!

by Jillian Leslie on

A Kate Spade bridal shower, a pool party, a fairy party, and a baby shower are my favorite parties this week! | CatchMyParty.com

Hope you all had a fabulous 4th! We went to see Inside Out, which we loved! Personally, I think the movie might give kids a new framework for understanding their feelings. My daughter talked about her feelings a lot yesterday using some of the terminology (and characters) from the movie. It was fascinating to see how quickly she internalized it.

Now drum roll please for my 4 favorite parties of the week... This week I'm featuring a gorgeous Kate Spade bridal shower (Kate Spade parties have become so popular recently on our site!), a bright and colorful swimming pool girl birthday, a lovely shabby chic baby shower, and an enchanted fairy birthday party with beautiful details including an ombre rosette cake!

Check out my newest video with Mode Media on how to create pasta two ways -- one for adults and one for kids.

My daughter is the pickiest of eaters, so I'm used to modifying recipes. These two recipes satisfy our whole family, but don't take a ton of time.

Trend Alert: Bohemian Tribal Parties

by Jillian Leslie on

Bohemian Trial Parties Roundup | CatchMyParty.com

When I see a new trend showing up on our site, I love to share it.

That's why I've rounded up these beautiful bohemian tribal parties. They have lots of Native American touches like teepees, arrows, dream catchers, and feathers, but to give them a more ethereal feel, the color palette is usually pastel, and there are lots of soft details, like fabric and ribbons.

How I Indulge Myself...

by Jillian Leslie on

Skinny Cow asked me to share how I indulge myself -- where I put myself and my needs first.

As a working mom, I must admit, I don't have a lot of time for indulgence. I constantly ask myself, "What did I do with all my free time before I was a mom? How could I have thought I was busy?" To be fair, I do remember watching lots of movies and taking lots of naps, and that can be exhausting.
