The Farmer’s Baby

Spring is just around the corner and with it comes flowers, sunshine, and… BABIES!  Yup, it’s baby season my friends and that can only mean one thing – baby showers!!!  Woohoo!  So, let’s kick off the season right with a shower design request from one of our Frosted Moms-to-Be: Dear FP,I love everything that represents middle-America and want my baby shower to be farm/rustic themed.  However, when I tell everyone this they automatically assume I want it to be a farm-animal party.  I don’t want my party to be a Old McDonald cliche, but I’m in a design rutt and …

The (not-so) Christmas Baby

Today we will tackle one of the most tragic and horrible occurrences in the history of man… the holiday birthday!  This is something that the staff at The Frosted Petticoat is uncomfortably acquainted with.  We have been cursed with (count them!) FOUR birthdays within the week of Christmas! That’s right Mama Petticoat, Trishy Cocoa, Papa Petticoat, and even yours truly, Sugar Sam were all brought into this world the week of that joyful holiday.  Seriously, no one could have planned this a little better?!

Eco Pleasures

I often receive messages from newly engaged brides-to-be whom are overwhelmed by one daunting question:  Where do I start?!  With all the bridal magazines, pretty blogs, and (let’s face it) motherly opinions, the start of your wedding planning can be a very confusing time.   One bride-to-be in particular wrote in frustration that her “eco-friendly” outdoor wedding was off to a horrid start.  None of the favor or wedding shops carried green products and she worried that her search was in vain. Well fear not, tulle warrior! Your quest can easily begin in the place where dreams are made, in a land …
