What could be easier? Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties. We plan the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food. But we never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves. (except for children's parties where we plan and schedule every minute).
And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there. It is then we realize things aren't going so well. We have had political conversations go ballistic and strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing. There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation. That's where these Halloween printable games come in extraordinarily handy. In just a few minutes, we can change the course of the evening. Don't get caught in a scary spot. Plan ahead this Halloween by having a stack of pre-printed games ready at a moments notice. Have a fun-filled Halloween and party hearty!
One more thought … many of these print and play games work great in a classroom. Some are even customizable so you can tailor them to your lesson or set them aside for your classroom Halloween celebration.
Late summer and fall weddings are just around the corner so it is time to start thinking about your flowers. We love the idea of using gorgeous succulents, air plants, and wild and dried flowers to create fabulous bridal bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages. Best yet, not only are the bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages long lasting, they can be easily unwrapped and planted after your big day. Additionally, using succulents for your wedding flowers offers two more distinct advantages
Succulent bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages are an eco-friendly choice for upcycling your wedding flowers.
You and your wedding party can enjoy your wedding bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages for years to come.
We are particularly enamored with the showcased airplant boutonnieres and wildflower boutonnieres. These particular boutonnieres feature oregano, dried blooms, and assorted wild flowers, with a twine treatment on the stem. How fabulous! Here is another image showing the variety and detail available. Best yet, they are only $14.00 each! Continue Reading →
Let the kids do the work >> We're getting close to Mother's Day and one of the printable games by Print Games Now most loved by moms is the Mother's Day Treasure Hunt. It's packed with tasks for Dad and the kids to complete around the house, made fun in the context of a game. Just copy and paste this link into an email to your husband and let him take it from there. All he needs to do is to print the game out on your home printer early on Mother's Day morning (or better yet, the night before) to keep the kids busy while you sleep in!
Creating a gender reveal party post has been on the top of our “to do” list for ages. Since we still have not gotten around to creating our own, we thought we would at least share some ideas from one of our “go to” party suppliers, Windy City Novelties. And as usual, we could not help ourselves and ended up editing their copy and even throwing in a few (ok, more than a few) ideas of our own.
What are Gender Reveal Parties?
Gender reveal parties have become quite popular over the past few years. Oftentimes, gender reveal parties are held in the place of a baby shower, and both men and women are invited to the event. However, there are couples that will hold both a gender reveal party and a baby shower. At the gender reveal party, the guests, and sometimes the parents themselves, will find out the sex of their unborn child. The purpose of the party is to share the news and celebrate with close friends and family.
