Hello! Remember me? It’s been a while since I blogged, but I’m back. I’ll be playing catch up around here for a bit — we had a fun summer with lots of adventures I will share.
First up: a baby shower.
In August, I was the lucky host of a baby shower for a friend — it’s her [...]
My boy is 6. So we celebrated.
The invitations were simple (maybe you saw them if you are following me on Instagram). I used the wording from this spy party, but simplified it some, printed it on graph paper and called it good.
We hosted the whole party in our backyard. I made two giant coloring pages of [...]
We celebrated another birthday. Cooper’s three-year-old birthday request included basketball, really big cake, sprinkles, and gumballs. Ok. Here’s what I came up with.
Grammie, JoPa, my sister and her kiddos came in town to help us celebrate.
We spent the morning at the park swinging, playing tag, and shooting hoops. We had a picnic. The weather was beautiful.
(If I was awesome, this photo would not be grainy!)
My little super hero turned 5. How come all this growing up business happens so fast?
I believe in small, low-key birthday parties. Max could invite five friends (he chose Cooper as one of those –cute!).
Lots of balloons. WHAM, BAM, POW signs hung all over. [...]
Spring time is birthday season at our house. I decided to let the kiddos have birthday parties with friends every other year. So this was our friend party year.
Max wanted a race car theme with red and orange. Done.
We tied an orange balloon to each chair. I covered the table with brown kraft paper (the kind [...]
Last week I hosted a baby shower for a good friend. She is having her fourth boy! I really wanted to have a celebration for her (not so much for the baby). Now don’t get me wrong, babies are good. But I think the party needs to be for the pregnant lady. It’s no small thing [...]
This might be a little late, but I’m sharing anyway.
I used this table setting at our Easter Brunch but it would work with any spring or garden party. The nest is made out of marshmallow and All Bran cereal.
A few weeks back, our friend invited me and the boys to make these darling chicken cupcakes. They [...]
This is fabric flower garland is pretty simple. I made the flowers out on the deck while the boys played in the backyard. Later that night I made it into a garland. It’s the perfect thing for spring and summer.
+ fabric of your choice cut into circles (3″ diameter)
+ needle and thread
+ hot glue
+ twine or [...]
A few nights ago I had the honor of hosting a baby shower for my friend and her new baby boy. I love these types of celebrations!
Some party details:
Of course the only photo I took of the food table was before all the food was on it. (I would do something like that – maybe because [...]
Christmas week was just as I hoped it would be. I spent tons of time with my little family. We (Chris, mostly) did a few projects around the house, raked leaves, and had a party. In years past, we have delivered plates of treats to our neighbors and friends around Christmas time, but this [...]
