A Great Day for Hockey {Montreal Canadiens Inspired}


HE SHOOTS!  HE SCORES! Amy Liu Bissett of A Dazzle Day threw a {Montreal Canadiens Inspired} Hockey Party for her son Gavin’s 9th birthday that had the crowds (of party guests) cheering!  Influenced by his dad’s favorite team, the Montreal Canadiens, Gavin had a birthday party fit for any Stanley Cup loving kid!  Amy used the team colors, hockey gear, and so many great themed foods to bring this party to life!  As always, her DIY projects are simple and ao perfect!

My favorite details are:

  • black chalkboard ice rink as the sweets table backdrop
  • bench made of well used hockey sticks
  • welcome sign clipboard with hockey trading cards
  • handmade hockey jersey fondant cake topper
  • brownie hockey stick treat


In Amy’s words:

Everyone had so much fun! This is the perfect birthday party theme for bigger boys. You get to play hockey for an hour with your friends and then enjoy yummy treats after the game. What’s not to like? Influenced by daddy, Gavin’s favorite team is Montreal Canadiens so I’ve used blue and red as the main party colors. I especially love my idea of drawing a hockey field on a chalkboard as the backdrop – simple and easy but looks nice!

Tania has once again created the ideal party printable per my request. She is awesome! Check out her Etsy shop!

Food: chocolate fondant cake, chocolate cupcakes, popcorn, brownie, dipped pretzel sticks, pigs in a blanket, lemonade

For the favor box, I gathered up a few hockey related items for the kids. I love the hockey pencil and the little gold medal!

Dreamy Woodland Fairy Party

garden fairy blog post-p001

I had the pleasure of once again working with Amy of A Dazzle Day.  Her attention to detail and many DIY party decorations really makes her stand out as a fabulous party stylist!  We worked closely together to create this dreamy lavender and mint woodland fairy party package that came alive for her daughter Mia’s second birthday.  It is equally as beautiful as her Princess Safari Party that she styled for Mia’s first birthday, found here!  This gorgeous party was featured on Hostess with the Mostess, here.

These adorable toadstool seat covers were handmade by Amy and she was so kind as to put together a tutorial for all those interested.  This tutorial and following DIY projects for this party were all featured on Hostess with the Mostess along with the party itself!  These seat covers are an easy sewing project and totally affordable, click here for the step by step instructions!


From fairy wands, custom clay ornaments, wooden peg fairy doll and hand stamped muslin purses, these little fairy guests were made to feel very special in Mia’s enchanted garden!

Princess Safari Party

safari blog post-p001Well, a few months ago, I had a custom request to create a mod safari package in pastel colors.  The very sweet and talented photographer, Amy of A Dazzle Day, was looking to create a special first birthday theme for her daughter, Mia and wow! she definitely did not disappoint!  This party is full of so many whimsical and sweet details, I barely know where to begin, but begin I will…

mia safari24 mia safari36

She designed and created the felt birthday hat, but she also cleverly embellished the patterned party hats created for the package.  It is amazing what simple tissue paper can do to spice up a party hat. Note to self…must try this out!

mia safari32 mia safari31 mia safari23

The party tables were full of so many vintage details, this favor table is just so sweet and ecclectic…lace, burlap, rik rak ribbon, all work together so nicely.

mia safari19 mia safari18 mia safari15 mia safari9 mia safari8 mia safari5

Amy designed and handmade all the felt animals and party hat.

Side note: I have used these lollipops at parties I have thrown and you can find them at Micheal’s.  The thank you stickers and ribbon actually come with the lollipops and make for great and affordable party favors!

How adorable, it really is a beautiful party, but there is much more cuteness to come…

I just love those leg warmers and the colorful tutu!

mia safari58 mia safari59 mia safari60 mia safari61

Amy layered the water bottle wrapper with a lace doily, which makes for a vintage look.  I can tell she used a glass Starbucks frappuccino bottle.  Washed and cleaned, they are a great size for the kids birthday parties!  These adorable polka dot straws can be purchased from many sellers on Etsy and really add so much to the look.

mia safari54 mia safari57 mia safari56

The cupcake toppers are backed with coordinating tissue rosettes.  The are very simple to make and I plan to post a tutorial on how to create them sometime in the near future.  Amy used the cupcake wrappers provided in the party package and I think they add are really nice finishing touch!

mia safari45 mia safari44 mia safari43

Just when I thought this momma couldn’t be more talented, I find out she actually made these adorable cookies too.  I am very impressed as I have tried my hand at decorating sugar cookies and it does take a fair bit of skill. Very cute!

mia safari49 mia safari48 mia safari37

Thank you so much for sharing your birthday girl’s very special day with us.  Simply adorable and so much love and care put into each and every detail!

Happy celebrating!
