Full disclosure: I love throwing my kids birthday parties. I fully admit to going all Pinterest-y on their big days — printing out water bottle labels, baking and decorating various cookies to match their theme, and color coordinating everything from the invitation to the table settings to the cake and more. I know it's over-the-top and probably something they don't even care about, but it makes me happy, and it's a great way to let out some of my creative juices. The biggest hurdle I always face is the ticking clock — there are only so many hours in a day, and there just aren't enough to go as Pinterest-crazy as I would like for each soiree.
It appears that I'm not the only one who faces this hurdle. Fellow busy mom Soleil Moon Frye has taken her party-loving skills and put them to great use, creating different variations of a party-in-a-box that are seriously chic with her new company, P.S. XO.
