Entries in party (62)



Just catching up on posting photos here.  We made these lanterns to celebrate Lunar New Year last month, inspired by this post by The Imagination Tree.  They would also work as decor for a summer party or play date!

snack bar

To make snack time a little extra special, we sometimes put out a snack bar with different crunchy options.  It’s also a great addition to play dates and get-togethers.  For this time of the year, a snack bar is perfect to set up on the kids’ table at holiday meals or for watching one of the many Christmas movies on TV this month!

Thanks to Munchkin for sending us these versatile, colorful bowls.


diy stocking stuffers

I'm at Honest to Nod today, sharing a couple of stocking stuffer ideas.  Thanks to The Land of Nod for sending these festive reindeer cups!


nate's 3rd birthday

When planning Nate’s 3rd birthday, I knew I wanted it to have a couple of handmade details and bright pops of color.  I opted for a palette of turquoise, green, yellow and gray (the names of these colors on the Paper Source site are peacock, clover, sunshine and gravel).  I crafted a couple of party elements—paper chains and flags with Nate’s first initial in washi tape.  Since Nate adores cookies, it was easy to decide on the theme: milk and cookies.  On the menu were a selection of delicious cookies and gorgeous “milk and cookie” fondant cupcakes made by the wonderful Candy Clay Cupcakes.  Happy birthday, Nate!  We are thankful for the blessing you are and your boundless energy and enthusiasm! :)
