Cookie Decorating and Egg Hunt Party

In Mommyhood

*This post was sponsored by Party City and the majority of the products that you see were supplied for use in planning this party. I love celebrating holidays.  Not necessarily in huge ways but I do enjoy heart shaped items for Valentine’s day, green colored things for St. Patrick’s day, pumpkins, and fireworks…you get the idea.  That’s why I started my cookie tradition with Gav.  I was able to take those little pieces that I love and turn them into a tradition.  There are a few holidays, however, that I enjoy more than others.  Christmas is pretty obvious, but I also really enjoy the Easter season.

DIY // Cartwheelin’ Cake Topper

In Uncategorized

I know what you’re thinking…a post on Thursdays?!  I thought you didn’t post on Thursdays!  I don’t but I had to share this fun DIY I did for my girls over on Pretty Providence.  It’s their blog birthday week so be sure to check out the amazing giveaways they have going on too!  I love how it turned out and it features one of my favorite people in the world, Mr. G. Also, I’m leaving tomorrow open for a fun announcement! (the suspense!) I think this cartwheelin’ cake topper would be a great way to add a whimsical touch for a mothers/fathers day treat or even a grandparent’s birthday since most of them don’t really want the candles anyway! Look at that happy little face! So head on over the MY POST on Pretty Providence for the full tutorial and be sure to drop by again tomorrow for the announcement! XO, Kelly

DIY // Snack Train

In Uncategorized

Since we’re in the process of buying a home and moving, we’re trying to save even more money than we normally do.  Not easy folks…not easy!  So this means that I’ve had to get even more creative with my DIY, especially with Mr. G’s party.  Luckily, if I think I can reuse it, I save it and that’s how the snack train came about! What You’ll Need: Empty Shoe Boxes Patterned Paper Aluminum Foil Glue Take the bodies of the shoe boxes, setting aside the tops for later, and cover them in your paper.  I just printed out some stripes on printer paper we already had. Trace out circles on the cardboard of the tops for wheels and cut them out.  Using the glue, cover them with aluminum foil and attach them to the boxes. For the conductor’s car, take an old toilet paper roll, trace out a place for in on one of the tops, and cut it out.  Cover in black paper, or paint it, and stick it in. You can place some extra foil inside the cars to line it if you like and fill with your favorite treats! The snack train was a pretty big hit…
