Celebrating First Birthday with Mud Pie

March 28, 2018

First Birthday Bash!

We had so much fun filming videos for a little something we have up our sleeve! We played with these two precious cuties and it was super sweet in more ways than one. Here is a sneak peak of our first birthday celebration dressed head to toe in Mud Pie!

What we learned:

1. Talk about a sugar rush! These two were all over the place after they ate their weight in cake. Make your little one’s birthday picture perfect and shop all of our birthday products on mudpie.com now! (and our Gold Edge Marble Serving Board Set)

2. It is going to get messy, that is OK! Baby + cake = a complete mess. But that is how it is supposed to be. Create a cake smashing space inside the house with a disposable table cover (you can get one at the dollar store) underneath the high chair. You can also move the event outside.

3. Make sure you have a bib AND a back up bib, because it’s going to get everywhere.

4. Don’t put the cake down until you are ready to roll. We learned the second we set the cake down, these two went after it. Make sure you are ready to snap a pic or record a video and then set the cake down and let them get to smashing!

5. A first birthday party is all about the birthday boy/girl, but make sure the guests have something sweet to eat too! Get an extra cake (we ordered two of the exact same cake) for your guests, because the smash cake will have baby hands, nose and even feet all over it.

DIY: MUD PIE IN YOUR HOME PART FOUR

July 7, 2017

Hey babes!

DIY projects are a great way to spend your Summer days! Get your DIY brain ready, because we have our fourth and final wall for you to try this season.

So you’ve heard it before, but if you are new to the blog party (which you should just go ahead and subscribe to us, that way you’ll stay in the loop!), we will give you a little background on our ridiculously amazing design team.

A little backstory on our Super Squad

Every year, twice a year, our Mud Pie Visual Merchandising Director, Chad Gieseke rounds up his team and creates a master piece of a showroom based on that seasons catalog.

It takes a lot of time and hard work to make a showroom as innovative and beautiful as Chad and his team does. “I’m constantly thinking of ideas for the showroom. It never stops,” says Chad. Where do all of his magnificent ideas come from? Well, it’s simply the product itself. He picks up on the color, textures and icons from the product and designs from there.

And you may think that is simple. Oh, but then add in three different lines (kids, living and fashion) and then a 11,000 sq ft showroom in Atlanta, a 3,800 sq ft showroom in Las Vegas, a 4,000 sq ft showroom in Dallas AND a 800 sq ft showroom in New York. Believe it or not, Chad, his 4 freelance designers and his MP sidekick Nola have the same amount of hours in the day as we do. And just saying, I’ve never seen Chad, Nola and the team in the same room as Superman, Superwoman and their team..

Now onto the goods

We highlighted Chad and his team’s work on four different walls in the Atlanta Showroom for Spring 2017. Our final stop on this super adorable polka dot wall. You can use these vinyl stickers anywhere! On a window, in your little one’s room, are you inspired yet? Chad and his team created a ‘frame’ out of the vinyl polka dots that looked into a baby girls birthday party. This wall featured our Baby & Kids items (hint hint: Many you can find on mud-pie.com right now!). The inspiration came straight from our Oh Happy Day Baby Socks, One Tutu Crawler, Birthday Princess Dress, Birthday Princess Tutu Skirt Set, Birthday Princess Tunic & Leggings Set and the Glitter Party Hat Headbands.

Now, off to DIY!

Dinosaur First Birthday Party

February 23, 2015

Most recently, I celebrated my nephew’s first birthday. ONE! I can’t believe he is one.  Below are some pictures from Elias’ dinosaur first birthday party! We had a DINO-mite time.

 OUTFIT

He is my only nephew so I can’t help but shower him with Mud Pie.  Elias’ first birthday outfit was an adorable Mud Pie Dino Birthday T-shirt, gray jeans and Birthday “One” Socks. I personalized the first birthday shirt – I couldn’t help it! The birthday outfit was complete with the Blue  “I’m One” Birthday Hat. He looked so handsome!

DECOR

We used lots of plastic and inflatable dinosaurs around the house. Tons of happy birthday balloons, pictures of Elias throughout the year and paper pom poms filled the room with color. The main table was decorated with a milestone chalkboard sign which featured Elias’ favorite things, colorful paper products and a Mud Pie Birthday Boy Candle Plate.  Outside a Mud Pie Chalkboard Cupcake Sign and a Birthday Boy Dinosaur Door Hanger welcomed guests to the party.

FOOD

We served up three different crostini’s, pasta and fruit salads, chips & dip, cookies and cupcakes. Crostini’s really are a great party food – easy and delicious. Check out these awesome crostini recipes here.

FAVORS

Bubbles, balloons and cupcakes—what else do you need at a 1 year old birthday party?   Dinosaur hats! Each guest was sent home with a dinosaur hat, stick on mustache, and mini bubbles. The kids had a roaring good time running around the yard as dinosaurs.

ALL GOOD THINGS MUST COME TO AN END

After a long day of partying Elias crashed hard in his Mud Pie Monster Lounge Set. We were all tired – first birthday parties are hard work!
