Hi, I’m Alyssa, and I love seeing all the inspiration on HWTM! Aside for my obvious love of design, parties, and blogging, here are a few random things about me…

2. I just got married on 3.14.15
3. I’m from Miami, Florida.
5. I love to cook but hardly, if ever, repeat dinner recipes.Follow Me on Google+ Follow @@alyssaberns

From lemonade in […]
KABOOM! That’s my mind being blown from Paper & Cake‘s Cool Chemistry Inspired Science Lab Birthday Party (because it’s totally awesome, of course!).
