Summer Camp Link Party

Summer is in full swing and if your summer has been anything like ours it's been busy!  We've been enjoying splashing in the pool, exploring nature and creating some fun summer crafts.  I've found lots of great ideas at Design Dazzle's Summer Camp series and I even had the chance to relive my youth and serve as a "camp counselor" showing you how to make your own DIY Fishing Pole. But, summer just "officially" started today and I could use some more ideas to keep the kiddos entertained and … [Read more...]

Easter Brunch and Egg Hunt

Last year we had our first Easter Egg Hunt and I couldn't wait to have one this year.  But, with busy schedules and lots of other activities going on we ended up not having our big Easter egg hunt with friends.  Instead I planned an Easter Brunch for our family and we had a small get together with lots of fun hanging out together. I loved the Easter party package from Dimpleprints I used last year and decided to use it again this year and reused many of the same elements. I used the play set … [Read more...]

Treat Cones & Stand

Treat cones are an easy way to serve food to little kids at parties.  And with a few supplies you can create a stunning display for the treat cones at your next party. First, you will need a block of foam.  I buy mine at the dollar store and keep them wrapped in the plastic to eliminate the mess while working with it. Next, wrap it in coordinating paper, like a present.  I used plain white craft paper. Wrap ribbon around the foam and secure with small straight pins. Now, … [Read more...]

Paint Chip Silverware Holders

This idea is certainly not my original idea, and unfortunately I can't remember where I first saw.  On a recent trip to Lowe's with my hubby I walked by the paint isle and inspiration hit.  I was working on a Monster Bash and wanted to find a way to incorporate and use some of the printable images I had. I grabbed a bunch of paint chip samples in my color scheme Next, I got out my sewing machine and stitched up the edges leaving an opening at the top. After they were all put together I … [Read more...]

Watermelon Picnic {Party}

I created this sweet Watermelon Picnic party for my grandma's 80th birthday celebration. A family reunion was planned to help celebrate this big milestone.  Unfortunately, my little family was unable to make the trip to Utah to attend.  Although we couldn't be there I wanted to help make sure that she enjoyed her special day!  So I did what I do best and put together some party decorations for my mom to take with her. I set-up the party a few days before my parent's left for Utah so we could … [Read more...]

Sock Monkey Baby Shower

When we found out we were having boy/girl twins I decided to decorate their nursery with sock monkey's and vintage toys.  I used rich chocolate brown, red and cream and 3 years later still love their little room. So when my sister told me she needed some help throwing a baby shower for a dear friend, who is decorating her nursery with sock monkey's, I was super excited. I used a brown and red color palette with touches of baby blue.  I incorporated polka dots and stripes to keep it … [Read more...]
