The best meal of the weekend is having a moment right now. Host your very own boozey brunch with friends and print these free wine tags to spice up the decor. Rosé + shine!
St. Patrick’s Day is faaaar from what it used to be (i.e.; college drunkfests, spring break trips and staying up all night/sleeping all day) BUT I still view it as the unofficial start to spring. I start to notice the smell of freshly cut grass, longer days, evenings outside, BBQing. Gahhh, it’s the best. So even if I’m in bed by 9 p.m. I still love celebrating St. Patrick’s Day. And my kids really love having Lucky Charms in the house. 😉
My oldest is now a 5 year old! This year was fun because it was the first year he was super in to the party planning: he chose his own guest list, menu and helped with decor. It was so fun.
I jump at any opportunity for a good pun: and pizza has a lot of them. Most details were designed by me, the cake and piñata were made by my awesome mom–best. cake. ever. Tyler crafted the pizza paper goods including the super rad pizza bunting that is still hanging in our living room.
When Harrison said he wanted a pizza party, he specifically wanted a cake shaped like a pizza. And his grandma delivered. (Because his mom sucks at baking. Sorry, dude.)
Cake details: Like I said, my mama made this rad cake (hi mom!). She used a pizza size deep dish baking pan for the cake mix, red frosting, grated white chocolate for the cheese and cut out circles from fruit roll ups for the pepperoni. She then made Pop Pop (my dad) stop at a local pizza place for a box to make it look like a real pizza. And it really fooled some people!
Activities: We did a decorate your own apron table, DIY photobooth and a piñata for activities. For the apron supplies, I stocked up on jewels, googly eyes, poof balls, stick on letters and glitter glue from the Dollar store. Aprons are from Oriental Trading and the fabric pens I got on Amazon.
As for the piñata, made with love (and frustration and cussing haha!) by my mom. But it made for such rad party decor and a fun activity for the kids.
The DIY photo booth is our go to, easy party activity. We put out our collection of hats, glasses and props then put up a back drop where people could take their own fun photos.
I love birthday traditions. It’s such a fun way to keep the magic alive and make the birthday kiddo feel special. We started The Birthday Interview when Harrison turned 3 and will start it this year with Sullivan when he turns 3. It’s SO fun to see how their answers change year to year.
I designed this editable PDF so you can input the name of each of your kids and print it from your home printer every year.
The All About Me printable is designed with versatility in mind so it can fit seamlessly in to any party theme decor. Plus, using the same design every year makes it fun to see how their answers change–and their signature!
We’d love to see your worksheet in action! Tag + follow @BritGarnDesign on Instagram and use #ILoveBGD for a chance to be featured.

When your wine-loving friend gets pregnant with her third baby, it’s only natural her baby shower is booze themed. Guests brought her bottles of wine and we had a booze-y brunch.
Simple and classic was the idea. My friend Erin hosted in her beautiful new home.
Each guest got their very own wine glass to take home. I used to sleep, but now I just wine was a perfect tie in to the theme and perfect for all the mamas in attendance.
Mimosas and coffee were also served. For me, champagne with a splash of orange juice. Per usual.
Then for dessert–amazingly decorated homemade cupcakes.
The hostesses (one of them being me) are kind of anti annoying baby shower games. We are also against the term “sprinkle” but that’s neither here nor there. So we decided this fill in the blank guessing game was perfect–mama-to-be could take them home and have fun seeing who made the best predictions.
It was such a fun theme for a sweet friend. Baby Brunch and Booze! Best baby shower theme ever.
