Happy New Year!

It’s hard to believe this is the last weekend of the year of 2013. Where did the time go?

I am here again to share with you my NYE project I did exclusively for Yum Food and Fun for Kids Magazine. Who doesn’t love a yummy breakfast?

yumfood

The simple breakfast table consisted of pancakes with marshmallow butter sauce (recipe courtesy of Oh, Bite it!), Rice Krispie Balls by Eat the Dishes, a delicious pound cake, muffins, powdered sugar donuts, waffles and milk.

I set up a small table for a small family just like mine. I also designed NYE inspired hats, tags for gable boxes and noise makers. Each kid could also enjoy a clock marking midnight cake pop designed by Eat the Dishes.

The NYE printables and hat template are all available for free download!

I hope you enjoy the images!

Merry Christmas!

Nothing like updating the blog on Christmas Eve, right?

I apologize for the lack of posts. So many things I would like to share with each one of you!

Since it’s Christmas Eve today, I will start by sharing our Annual Gingerbread House Decorating Party, which is a project I absolutely love planning and executing. The kids have SO much fun and I get to showcase my lovely vendors’ work. This year, Renee Nicole Photography captured all the details and I am so thankful she was available and willing to participate!

Two great things I would like to share about this Holiday Party:

1) It was featured in Tattle Magazine. How exciting is that? It was nice to see my work in print!

Super Cool First Day of School – Top 10 Back to School Ideas

Are you ready for the first day of school? Are you already on day 6? Either way, you are probably still picking up last minute goodies for the kiddos. With everyone wearing the same uniforms with the same school supplies, it’s hard for each child to show any individuality.Here are 10 ways to help your kids look cool and stand out from the crowd!

1 – AGENDA

First, Mommy needs a place to write down all of these cute ideas. If mom’s not organized, no one in the family is either. Look fabulous with this beautiful Vera Bradley agenda by Swoozies to hold all your kids’ special dates.

2 -BACK TO SCHOOL BREAKFAST

Serve up breakfast on these DIY Apple Plates from Spaceships and Laserbeams and set their morning in a cheery mood! Homemade pancakes or just a granola bar, anything would look extra special on this adorable plate.

3 – PICTURE SIGNS

These easy to print signs by Paper Coterie are perfect for the first day of school! Even if it has already started, grab a pic with one now. Years from now you won’t care what day you took it. You will just be thankful you got them to slow down long enough to take the picture! With big smiles and backpacks these pictures are great in a scrapbook or a frame.

4 – PERSONALIZED BAG TAGS

Print out these school day tags from Anders-Ruff and add your child’s name. They are a whole lot cooler than their name written on a piece of masking tape! (Shhh…we’ve all done it.)

5 – LUNCH NOTES

Let the kids know that you are thinking of them on any school day. These free printable school lunch notes from Chickabug are just the right size for the lunch box. Toss in a couple stickers and put a grin on their face for the rest of the day! Middle School and High School kids would probably prefer $20 bills instead of stickers.

6 – AFTER SCHOOL SNACK

Have something healthy to eat waiting for them when they get off the bus. Some are going to be asleep and the others jumping around. Either way these Pineapple Orange Banana Popsicles are tasty and fresh.

7 – CUTE FAVORS FOR KIDS

These pencils look like great little treats for friends. The best part is that they are made from a tube of Rolos, a Hersheys’ Kiss and some craft paper. Add a little tag and you have the perfect gift for friends and teachers at school. These are also perfect for Valentine’s Day and Halloween. Images of these pencils are all over the internet, especially Pinterest! I was able to find the source. Go get your glue dots!

8 – SURVIVAL KIT FOR TEACHER

Print out these clever tags and wrappers to make your new teacher a first day of school survival kit that they will actually use! Throw in some tea bags, instant coffee packets, quarters for the vending machine and a Rolo Pencil from #3 and they will be so grateful.

9 – CLASSROOM TREATS

Homemade or store bought cupcakes are a great way to make new friends in the classroom. Either way you can dress up your treats in these school themed cupcake wrappers by Cupcake with Character!

10 – YOU MADE IT! AFTER DINNER DESSERT

What kid wouldn’t want a cake pop after dinner? These apple pops take a little more time to put together, but the big smile on your child’s face will make it worth it!
