"Navigating the world of social media one pretty party at a time!"
My name is Keisha Sibert - WELCOME TO MY BLOG! I LOVE styling fabulously affordable parties at home, being creative and cooking delicious and healthy meals for my family! Entertaining at home is my thing and I like to do it affordably. Away from my blog, I am a wife, mother of an 8 year old son and 11 year old daughter. When I'm not writing for my blog or making handmade party decor for my Etsy shop, I love picking up a good book, creative planning, papercrafting or binging on Netflix!
ABOUT MY BLOG!
Cupcake Wishes & Birthday Dreams is a lifestyle blog with a focus on entertaining at home by sharing ways to create affordable party ideas, party styling tips, super simple crafts, diy's, easy recipes and inspiration. Throwing over the top parties has always been a passion of mine. I love to entertain, create and bake cupcakes but I also like to save money (c'mon - who doesn't?). So, I started Cupcake Wishes & Birthday Dreams, at the urging of my friends and family who were more sure than I was, that I would be GREAT at planning parties and make deliciously fun cupcakes. A few months after 'opening shop' I started blogging about my party planning shenanigans to document my crazy party and cupcake ideas. Over time, this blog has evolved and now I want the Cupcake Wishes & Birthday Dreams blog to be the place to go for affordable party ideas, party styling, easy recipes and inspiration but with a high end feel!
Being a 'Party Blogger' is REALLY a thing - trust me. It's brought me great satisfaction and is such an AMAZING outlet for sharing my creativity. I've had the opportunity to write for other party blogs like My Grafico's party blog, MG Party Impressions, where I was their party stylist for over two years. I also have been blessed to have my work featured on some of my favorite blogs like, Hostess with the Mostess' Trend Alert Series, Double the Fun Parties, Made by a Princess and Spaceships and Laserbeams to name a few. I've also been in a few party publications like, Everyday Party Magazine, Polka Dot Balloon and Ella and Annie Magazine It was also awesome to have my designs and handmade creations blogged about on She Hearts It and Houzz.com
If working with some of my favorite blogs wasn't enough, I have also had an opportunity to create and work with major brands like Oriental Trading Company and Martha Stewart Celebrations. On Cupcake Wishes & Birthday Dreams (CW&BD) readers learn how to style fabulous and affordable parties at home, cook delicious and healthy meals for family and friends, make easy and trendy handmade party decor, home decor and create fun crafts and activities for kids. Through partnering with national brands and sponsors, CW&BD helps to promote popular products by creating value based content that is both engaging and influential.
ABOUT MY SHOP!
I always loved crafting my own party decor and always made the invitations, banners, and party favor bags for my client parties. An artist at heart, I learned how to create my own designs on the computer to make my own party decor. When I realized there was a market for these items, and people started asking where I got the decorations for parties I planned, I opened my Etsy shop and started offering party kits. Soon after, I realized, people could instantly print the items I made on my computer from their own home printer. So, I started offering printable party kits along with, ready made party items like yarn pompom garlands and mini top hats.
