So we got to thinking, last year at this time we were frantically putting together a pink snowman winter one-derland party theme for a visitor who emailed asking for some inspiration for their daughter's 1st birthday party. This year we challenged ourselves to create a fresh holiday take on a baby boy's 1st birthday party.
Once we found this adorable gnome costume, we were set. Our theme would be Our Little Christmas Gnome Birthday Party. Not only would the photos be #toocute, we loved the idea of combining blue and red with splashes of green to create a playful, festive holiday theme first birthday party. We also found some cute gnome party invitations with a red and white polka dot background – how perfect was that! Continue Reading →

Meet the Little Voices Inside Your Head
Each and every one of us struggles with party planning because there are so many great ideas for themes, decorations, food, and even questions about who to invite. The folks over at Birthday Express have a fun solution. They suggest that rather than letting the competing voices in your head make you crazy, put them to good use, just like Riley did in the critically acclaimed Disney Pixar movie “Inside Out!” Continue Reading →
Finally, the ideal travel mug to remind you everyday of the Wonder Woman, the Mighty Aphrodite full of courage, confidence and charisma, within yourself.
Just in time for summer – finally, the ideal travel mug to remind you of the Mighty Aphrodite full of courage, confidence and charisma within yourself. This Wonder Woman travel mug is perfect to use every day to make sure you are actually drinking your daily recommended water consumption (The Institute of Medicine suggests that an adequate intake for women is 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day. )
We also love, love, love giving this travel cup as gifts. Recently one of our customers ordered 30 cups to use as party favors at her Wonder Women Theme Party birthday luncheon. We also like them as teacher gifts, Mother's Day gifts, and as wonderful little gifts of thanks.
So seize the day and celebrate girl power—all it takes is a little boost from your favorite ’70s superhero.
Today's mom's have little trouble creating beautiful and festive children's birthday party celebrations but sometimes between our own crazy busy schedules and the quest to throw the this year's most talked about event, we forget to add the little things that make the day especially meaningful. We think it is important for kids to know how much we love them but equally important for them to understand they are not the center of the universe. Kids need to learn and develop a healthy sense of self which includes compassion and caring of others. What better day to teach this lesson than on the very day they are lavished with gifts. Teach by example – integrate a “Give back” craft activity into your child's birthday party in addition the the usual birthday fun and party games. This “Give Back” craft activity would also be a wonderful addition to any classroom holiday party and could even be incorporated into a baby shower.
Our favorite “Give Back” birthday party activity is making easy no sew fleece blankets for local children or seniors in need. This activity is super simple, appropriate for all ages and sexes and can seamlessly (yes, pun intended) fit into most party themes. Basically if you can use a scissors and tie a knot you can make this blanket. All you need is cute fleece fabric, scissors, and a ruler or tape measure. Depending on the age of the children involved you may want to pre-cut 6″ (or 4″) square cut out from each corner.
What to buy
For a larger adult size blanket use 2 yards of each fabric. And we think for small children and toddlers you can get away with using even less fabric especially if the blanket is meant more for “shlepping” around as a security blanket rather than for warmth.
We must admit, fleece can be rather pricey, often running between $11 and $15 per yard. That is why September is a a perfect time to buy fleece. Both Hancock Fabrics and Joann are a offering select fleece on sale at up to 70% off!!! Plus we just checked Amazon and their fleece fabric definitely seems more reasonably priced, especially for a craft project.
