Usher in a Rosy New Year!

Usher in a Rosy New Year!

These fabulous New Year's invitations from Tiny Prints inspired us to create an entire New Years party theme.  We love the idea of ushering in a rosy new year or starting the new year wearing rose colored glasses, figuratively. Rather than gold and black glitz and glam, the softness of these invitations set the tone for an all round kinder, gentler new year.  We'll toast to that >> Cheers! Continue Reading →

“Give Back” Holiday Party Craft Activity >> No Sew Blankets

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. Children 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.

And with the holiday spirit upon us, why wait for your child's next birthday party. This “Give Back” craft activity would be a wonderful addition to any classroom holiday party and equally brilliant to incorporate into your own kid-friendly holiday celebrations. Continue Reading →

4 Memorable Milestone Birthday Presents

Cousin Alfred turned 100 this month and my mother-in-law wanted to gift him a special present worthy of a milestone birthday. She wanted ]milestone birthday presents that told a story. A gift that told his story. Specifically, she wanted a copy of the New York Times from the day Alfred was born. After a bit of back and forth, we narrowed her choices down to three: a framed front page New York Times reprint from the day he was born, The Ultimate Birthday Book – The Times of Your LifeNew York Times Special Day Book, and New York Times Custom Birthday Book. In the end mom chose the New York Times Special Day Book because it most closely embodied her original concept. All the others had either way more than she wanted or significantly less than she wanted. Continue Reading →
