Can you believe it’s been two months of partying right here, starting each Tuesday,  with the Party Time Linky?  By now, you know the Party Time Linky is a great place to find anything related to parties; like party games, party foods and party themes!  One thing you may not have tried yet is linking up your own party to the linky!  If you have a great party idea, recipe, etc., I encourage you to share it with us!  Everyone here loves a great party and we would love to see yours!!!

Last week, the most viewed link from our Party Time Linky, was this Olaf Snowman Treat Jar.  It’s inspired by the movie, Frozen!  It would make a great party decoration or a neat gift for a Frozen fanatic.

This glamorous DIY Sequin Monogram made quite a sparkle last week on the Party Time Linky!  An elegant way to jazz up your next event!

Another great party linked up last week, was this “You’ve Got A Friend In Me”  Toy Story Party!  It is full of great ideas for a photo booth, decorations and party gifts.

silk health post-2

  I just want to start this post by saying I'm not a health guru, and I know this isn't a party post, but I'm sure you've noticed a bit of a change in the blog to highlight some healthier party options. There is good reason! Over the past few years, I've cleared some health hurdles and I really want to spread the word how I did it because for the first time in forever, I FEEL GOOD.

Slumber party tips for your first sleepover

My daughter is finally at that age where she's able to have sleepovers. We try to limit slumber party madness to one or two girls at a time, but even then it seems there seems to be a bit of anxiety about what to do during the party. And then there is the question of how to get a bunch of eight year old girls down for bed for a good night's sleep. After a few go rounds, I've found out you have to { Read More! }

teacher gift tag-1

Both my kids started school this week. There were equal parts relief and sadness as they are both in elementary school now--sad to admit they are no longer babies! But on the first day of school, we showed up with our smiles on and a little present for our new teachers. This teacher gift idea is easy to make, and I've even got a free printable for you to help you pull it off in a snap! No hot glue { Read More! }

shutterfly free printable

Moving into our new house has been a decorating challenge. The new space is so wildly different from the last few we've been in, nothing seems to fit here quite right. After no small amount of frustration I've put a stop to trying to shove a square peg into a round hole and went shopping for a few new pieces to put around the house. For the walls? Shutterfly to the rescue! I think I've professed { Read More! }

how to train your dragon party bunting

  One of my favorite parts of creating a party is creating ambiance. For the How to Train Your Dragon Party, I wanted the fun feeling of the dragon racing ring. The scenery is mostly natural and neutral aside from the brightly painted poles, flags and bunting strung around the ring. So our party life could imitate on-screen art, I took a screen shot used the movie's bunting as { Read More! }
