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.

Hey there!  Today’s post comes to you from Heather over at Shutterfly.  As many of you know, I’ve been so ready for the warmer spring weather to get here and Heather has to perfect ideas to ring in the new season!  Spring is in the air in many parts of the country, and if it isn’t where you live, it will be soon enough. With spring comes the perfect opportunity to enjoy the outdoors before the heat of summer is upon us. A spring garden party is the ideal way to celebrate the melting of winter and the coming of a fresh start to the year. Consider what type of party you’d like to throw and you’re on your way to a wonderful time for you and your guests. Location, Theme, and Attire via If you have access to an actual garden or somewhere flowers are blooming, it’s obviously an ideal setting for your spring party, but you can still have a memorable time at a park or on someone’s front lawn. The location may help you determine the theme and type of attire you want guests to wear. For example, if you do happen to hold your party in…
