White Walls Wednesday - Ashleigh Nicole Events

It's White Walls Wednesday and if there was ever a day I wanted to be a five year old boy - this would be it! When I came across Marine wife Ashleigh Goodwin of Ashleigh Nicole Events I IMMEDIATELY wanted to have a kids party and fly Ashleigh in from California!

Hi! I’m Ashleigh! Since I was a little girl, I’ve loved all things beautiful! I thrive by being creative and thinking outside the box. I remember being so excited to get school projects just so I could show off my creative skills (yes, I was that kid)!

I started planning events for my sons’ birthdays and my love for planning blossomed from there. I believe that the little details make the most memorable events. I put my whole heart into every event that I plan and it is my true passion.

I am inspired most by my 3 little boys! Their wild imagination keeps me on my toes and they make me appreciate life for its simple beauties. I styled and designed this Dinosaur party for my older two little boys, Carter and Braxton! They absolutely love dinosaurs so I went to work planning a rustic dinosaur party!

Ashleigh threw quite possibly the coolest dinosaur excavation party for her sons - and every detail was created with love. From the fun invitations to the food prep to the party favors and more - this is a birthday the boys (and their guests) will never forget!

One of the many things I love about Ashleigh is in addition to being INCREDIBLY creative - she is a sharer! On her blog post about the party she tells us HOW she created the DIY projects, WHERE she found things like the custom cookies and the party banner (and includes links!) - so not only does she inspire you, she just makes it incredibly easy for you to recreate the projects for your own party. She makes it seem do-able...and that is so rare and SO appreciated!

This party was the epitome of hands on! From the handmade dinosaur shaped crayons and activity book party favors to the make your own trail mix bar (which is GENIUS!!!!!!) - Ashleigh even hosted some real life reptiles to make the day complete!

I could go on and on and on and on about all the cool details of this party - trust me when I say you NEED to go over to Ashleigh's blog to check it out for yourself. I am so inspired by her creativity, so excited to have found her, and can't wait to see what she creates next! Thanks Ashleigh!
