Gender Reveal: What will it be! A He or a She?

April 6, 2018

Gender Reveal Party at Mud Pie!

As you can tell from previous posts here on A Slice of Pie, we LOVE to celebrate absolutely everything and everyone! From becoming a U.S citizen, to getting a new dog, to even having a great hair day, we find any excuse to throw a little party and of course, eat something sweet. Recently, we found out one of our own Mud Pie gals was expecting *cue dancing Oprah meme* so naturally, we had to have a gender reveal party. We were dying to know what it was going to be, a HE or a SHE?!

Here comes the Gender Reveal! Drum roll please…

We covered the table with pink and blue everything. Cupcakes, plates, napkins and toys. We had two games so people could guess what they thought the gender was going to be. First, you had to color in either the ‘SHE’ or ‘HE’ of a Hershey chocolate bar. Next, you had to color the front of a clothespin with either pink or blue and pin it to yourself. We checked out all of the clothespins before the cake was cut and the majority of the office thought it would be a girl (are you surprised?) It felt like an eternity waiting for the mama-to-be to slice that cake! The second she lifted up the knife, we were all going crazy, cheering and screaming for a BABY BOY that will be due in September. There must be something in the water her at MP, because it seems like everyone is having boys! We can’t wait to meet this sweet pea and for him to star in future blog posts.

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 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.

Fall Bucket List: Host a Wine Tasting

Fall Bucket List: Host a Wine Tasting

So, we went a little above and beyond for the last item on our Fall Bucket List. We hosted a wine tasting + went to a winery! It seems there is always something to celebrate in the office. Our Social Media & Digital Marketing Manager, Jessica, got MARRIED!! She’s the darling blonde you have seen on our blog before (like the picnic in the park + pumpkin patch posts.) We had so much fun having a bunch of Mud Pie gals & guys over to toast the new bride and groom! We had a little wine + charcuterie board tasting and then spent the weekend at Montaluce Winery, where the sweet couple said their vows. Take a look at how much fun we had sending off the sweetest couple ever.

We absolutely love celebrating every little moment here at Mud Pie and it is even more fun when we are celebrating our own! We were #FallingForMP in more ways than one. The boards we used to lay out our meat & cheese were absolutely stunning and everything looked 10 times better when it was in a Mud Pie bowl, or on a Mud Pie plate.

Need hostess gifts for the holidays, hosting a wedding shower of your own, or want to start stocking up for the new year? Shop all of our boards/bowl/plates here (and then keep shopping around and you’ll fall for Mud Pie too)

Host a Wine Tasting: CHECK

We had an absolutely blast showering the bride and groom with a wine tasting and joining them as they took the leap towards forever together. Now, that is a wrap on our Fall Bucket List! We have had such a great time this Fall checking off every item and we hope you did too. Did you check off any of the items on your Fall bucket list? Post your photos on social media, tag us @mudpiegift and use #FallingForMP so we can see how you tackled the bucket list!

Summer Cocktails

June 6, 2016

SummerCocktails Header 

I can taste the sweet summer sun as I daydream of beach side lounging. School is finally out, pools are open and vacations are underway. Although Mud Pie says every season is their favorite, I think we really mean it when we say that summer gives the best welcome of them all, and that may be due to the fruity cocktails that come along with it. 

No matter the activity – relaxing by the water, entertaining on your porch or celebrating the long weekend – you have to have a refreshing drink in hand. I didn’t make the rules, but I promise to follow them. 

So treat yourself to sunshine and summer cocktails!


1.5 oz white rum

.5 oz Triple Sec

1.5 oz of pineapple juice

2 tbsp lime juice

1 tsp turbinado cane sugar  

Top with club soda


1 watermelon cube, muddled

1. Muddle a cube of watermelon at the bottom of a small cocktail glass.

2.Fill with ice. 3.Add rum, Triple Sec, and pineapple juice.

4.Stir in lime juice and sugar. 5.Top with club soda.

6.Stir! Sip! Enjoy!

Summer Cocktail Pitcher



1.5 oz white rum

1 dash orange run

3 oz grapefruit juice

1.Dash bitters into ice-filled glass.

2.Add rum.

3.Fill with juice.

The Big Game Party

January 26, 2016

Ask anyone, I am one of those girls who pours her soul into football. And WOW have things been looking up for my teams this year…not only did my college team pull in another National Title (Wonder who that could be? RTR), but now my NFL team is traveling to Santa Clara for the big game on February 7th!

Living in Charlotte for a few years, and my husband being from Charlotte, I have grown to love the Carolina Panthers! This year, they clinched the division – 3 years in a row! Needless to say, this is a big football year for us. So much so, that we are headed to California for the big game! Last minute trips make for the best ones, right?

In any case, we would be throwing a huge party for the day. But with all our joy, we couldn’t help and book tickets to be there in all the action.

For those of you celebrating from your home, Mud Pie has great items for the big game party. And the best part? Most of it is currently on sale – just in time!

Poodle Party!

Many of the Mud Pie girls bring their favorite fur companions to work regularly. My puppy, Olive, has been coming to the office ever since she was two months old. She is the company sweetheart! This past week we celebrated Olive’s birthday in style! Check out photos of Olive and her best friend Lola wearing upcoming Spring 2015 baby styles!  It was a fabulous Poodle Party…
