2011: A Year in Review

2011 where have you gone? 
I never realize how busy I have been until I do these end-of-year wrap-ups. You can see last year's here.
I've already got a few parties in the pipeline for 2012, including one in two weeks! So, it looks like I will be just as busy next year!

So, without further ado, here are all my 2011 parties... 

My first party of 2011 was Brett's Safari Party.  This sweet little party for a one year old little guy was the cutest! Ever since I debuted it, it has been the party that receives the highest amount of traffic on my site. I love that because this party was just adorable, and had a budget that most anyone could afford. And, I hope that my readers see that there are great parties to be had with any budget. You don't have to spend thousands to have an adorable party for your kids!

February also brought another Casino party for me! This time it was a Hot Pink Glamorous Casino!
I (obviously) love doing Casino parties and this one was extra fun because it put a spin on the tradition colors and fabrics associated with that theme. 

In March, my Grey turned 3 years old and we celebrated with a Hamburger Party! 
This is probably my favorite party of all time, just because of the theme. Everyone loves hamburgers and we had so many of our friends and family here to celebrate. 

Also in March, I styled a printable collection for Easter for Kristi's Printable Panache.  
I love how this shoot turned out. You would never know that was my guest bedroom, would you? ;)

In May, I designed a Bun in the Oven baby shower for a friend. It was totally retro inspired and totally fun. I love how this party turned out. It's so happy and kitschy and fun!

In May, we had a small gathering for our friends on Memorial Day. We did a Low Country Shrimp Boil, and you know I couldn't resist decorating a small appetizer and dessert display. 

Also, in May I styled a Ole Miss themed dessert station for a graduation party. Hotty Toddy!

I took a little hiatus in the summer, because THIS happened!

And in September, we baptized little Lachlan and had a Little Pumpkin party to celebrate!

In October, I was lucky enough to be asked to chair the local walkathon for the Tuberous Sclerosis Alliance.  Team Greyson raised almost $5000 and our walkathon total was over $50,000!

In November, I unveiled my new blog design by the super talented Michele at Intrigue Design Studio! Michele also designed our TEAM GREYSON logo!

Also in November, I was lucky enough to co-host the Children's Party Network Memphis Girl's Night Out!
Three words: SO. MUCH. FUN. 

And finally, in November, I designed a football themed party for Tate's Tailg8!
This party was adorable. If you haven't seen it yet, be sure to check it out here!

So, Happy New Year to all my readers and thank you for following me along on this journey!
And major thank yous to all my clients this year, who have been AMAZING. 
Also, to all the vendors I have worked with and the party blogs that have featured me, you guys are the best!
