JESSICA WILCOX of Modern Moments admits to being kept awake by new creative ideas. Friends are amazed that she no sooner has a great idea for a new product than it appears on her website – beautiful and ready for customers!

This artistic, high-energy entrepreneur with a degree in business discovered her flair for design as she settled into domestic life in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and first son six years ago. Since then, she’s had two more adorable boys and has begun two flourishing design-related businesses, one for custom home décor and one for print goods and party supplies.

Her flair for party details is the reason she is now developing a third business. A lover of “all things cupcake,” Jessica not only creates unique party décor but loves to cook savory snacks and bake sweet treats that creatively express the event’s theme. Lucky family members get to enjoy her design and culinary creations on a regular basis, and she’s now ready to share her party planning brilliance with the world. Watch for it!

I’m voting that Liz of The Papered Nest wins the prize for Wife-of-The-Year-Award for this amazing “Pots & Pig” Beer Tasting Party she threw for her husband’s 30th birthday! I know my husband would be in hog heaven, (pun intended, *wink*) if I threw him a party centered around beer + bacon! Even the party […]



December is the most hectic month of my (Jessica Wilcox, Modern Moments Designs) life. Every year, I promise myself it will be easier and I will plan ahead, but without fail, it seems to be crazier than the last. I know many of you feel the same way, and for me “December madness” stems from […]



This soft and furry LITTLE LAMB First Birthday Party that Carrie of Half Baked created to celebrate her daughter’s first birthday has a wonderfully calm, tranquil vibe – and is filled with seriously incredible style and grace!
