With Easter coming up this weekend, we thought we would share some photos from our recent "Bunny Hop" event held at our Roswell venue. Guests enjoyed egg decorating, face painting, crafts and a full egg hunt on the Roswell Square.

Will You Celebrate the Harvest with Me?
When one of our favorite sources for party inspiration, Occasions Magazine, asked us to style a shoot for their fall 2012 issue, of course we were honored and could not wait to get started! We decided to start with the classic childrens book "The Little Red Hen" and designed a Harvest Theme using elements from the book as our inspiration.
We selected a color palette of crimson, gold and aqua and incorporated burlap and a fun country fabric thoughout the design. The talented team at Chelsea Floral Design created the whimsical tablescape that incorporated cute garden insects, real sunflowers and a fantastic "Red Hen" centerpiece. They dressed the natural chiavari chairs with burlap sashes, rafia and more sunflowers.
We used large mustard yellow plates as chargers and topped them with red and white pattered salad plates. Painted wooden utensils and glass milk bottles with retro striped straws were at each place setting. Napkins were tied with cute red and white striped bakers twine.
Stalks of wheat were used in the tablescape and appeared again on the placecards.
What party is complete without a fabulous dessert buffet?
Apple Pie Push Pops, cupcakes with fondant toppers of baking elements, sunflower cookies, barnyard animal cake pops and popcorn cones rounded out the selection of treats.
As a nod to the baking of the bread central to the storyline, we set up a "Bread Shop" cart with asorted pastries and breads with honey butter and jams. Embracing the vintage feel of this shoot we brought out a nostalgic Flexible Flyer red wagon and hung some bunting make from burlap.
As a parting gift, we found vintage copies of "The Little Red Hen" from Little Golden Books and tied each one with bakers twine and a festive tag.

With the summer coming to a rapid end, children become restless and excited about the upcoming school year. Most children are extremely excited about going "Back to School Shopping." Who doesn't love writing in a new notebook for the first time, or opening a fresh pack of sharp crayons. New school supplies just get everyone excited about starting school, even if it means that summer break is over.
This year why not spend the week before school starts crafting with you kids. Here are some ideas for creating Crafty School Supplies!
Felt Book Cover
Children will have fun picking out colors of felt, buttons, and other
accessories to add to their cover. Add a pocket or special button for
Here is what you will need....
- Embroidery thread and needle
- Button (optional)
- Self-adhesive Velcro dot (optional)
To make a cover, open your chosen book and
measure the width and height. Add one inch to each measurement and cut
out a piece of felt with those dimensions. For the inside flaps, cut two
additional pieces of felt the same height as the main piece and
two-thirds the width of the closed book's front cover.
Lay an inside flap on top of each end of the
main piece and pin the flaps and the main piece together. With
embroidery thread, sew a running stitch about 1/4 inch to 3/8 inch from
the edge around the entire border.
If you like, add one of these extras:
Before attaching the inside flaps, cut a piece of felt that's 1 1/2
inches wider and 1/2 inch shorter than your notepad. Sew it in the
center of what will be the front cover of the book.
Faux button closure:
Before attaching the inside flaps, cut a strap that's 1 1/2 inches wide
and as long as the width of an inside flap. Sandwich the strap between
the back flap and the cover and pin it in place, then sew around the
entire edge of the cover, as noted above. With scissors, round the end
of the strap and sew on a button. Affix a self-adhesive Velcro dot to
the strap and the front of the cover.
After the cover is finished and on the book, cut a 1 3/4-inch square
out of felt. With the book cIosed, lay the square over a pen on the
book's spine and pin it in place. Take the cover off the book, then sew
on the square.

Paint Bucket Homework Caddy
This idea came from Fit, Crafty, Stylish and Happy. Cassidy used them as
teachers gifts, but could also be filled with daily homework supplies. With this crafty idea, children can decorate old paint cans with papers, stickers, paint, etc to create a school supply caddy. This one of a kind bucket can be filled with extra school supplies and easily carried to anywhere homework can be done. Don't waste time trying to find a sharpened pencil in your book bag...just grab one from your caddy!

In this day and age, a five year old pining for a Wonder Woman
themed party is rare. But, S is a unique little girl who couldn’t have been
more excited for Wonder Woman to fly into Posh Tot Events on her invisible jet and help
her celebrate her 5th Birthday. Our
event space was packed with red, white and blue décor and golden stars
everywhere! The children began the party by decorating their own yellow Wonder
Woman crowns complete with red stars and of course tons of glistening jewels
and doo-dads. Finally, our superhero of the hour arrived. In full costume and with her own
superhero music in tow, Wonder Woman was here and ready to get this party
started! The star cupcakes by Dots
Delights, “W” shaped sugar cookies from Yummy Delicious Cookies and red and
white striped starred water bottles only added to the fabulous ambiance! This
party was one for the books, thanks to our newest little superhero, Super S! Here are some of our favorite shots from the day.
Keep Calm and Party On!

Mirror, Mirror, on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all?
Why, Snow White of course! Last Saturday, Posh Tot Events had the distinct
pleasure of planning and hosting a Snow White themed birthday party for two adorable
sisters in our historic Roswell event space. Complete with apples and mirrors
everywhere, we couldn’t wait to get this party started! The children got the chance to make red
headbands, just like their favorite Disney princess has been sporting for
years, using red bows, ribbons and various sparkly jewels. Later, Snow White herself joined the fun! Not
only was she a sight to see, but she also brought along some of her favorite magic
tricks, face paint and made balloon animals for all of the party guests. Thanks C & A for letting us play a role
in your fabulous Snow White themed Affair, we can’t wait to see what princess
you girls come up with for next year! Below are some of the best shots from the
day. Keep Calm and Party On!
