Parents Magazine Feature: Vintage Dick and Jane Party

This has been a hard secret to keep, but I’m thrilled to finally share that my twins Vintage Dick and Jane Party is being featured in the August 2013 issue of Parents Magazine.

This Parents Magazine Feature is definitely a “pinch me moment!”  As a blogger and party stylist it is extremely rewarding to see your hard work recognized on a national level!  Parents Magazine contacted me back in January and expressed interest in featuring my twins 3rd birthday party.  Their Vintage Dick and Jane Party is still one of my favorites, so of course I said YES!

After a dozen emails, a few phone interviews and months of waiting my coveted issue of Parents Magazine finally arrived!  I held my breath as I opened the magazine to page 38 and saw the pictures of my sweet babies and their party.

I couldn’t stop smiling after I saw the beautiful feature and my sweet little twins in a magazine!   It brought me right back to all the late night craft projects, the hunt for the perfect vintage toys and the help of lots of family and friends to make their party an affair to remember.

Parker and Piper thought it was pretty darn cool they were in a magazine too.  Piper even asked me if she could sleep with it…I guess I need to get a copy just for her!
