Year of the Dog Celebrations

The Chinese New Year celebration of The Year of the Dog begins in just under a month. Yes, we have had our Chinese New Year cards up for a while now but until today never really focused on the fact that this is the year of the DOG! We love, ok we are obsessed with, anything and everything having to do with dogs! So not surprisingly, we cannot get enough of Gucci's Year of the Dog Instagram campaign. The featured photos by Petra Collins inspired us to create our own year of the dog campaign focusing on puppy love. 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 →

Bring Your Pup Howl-O-Ween Party Ideas

Our friends over at GreatGets.com have challenged us to create a Halloween costume party for couples and their dogs.  We accept the challenge and hope you all will send us your pictures of your first annual Bring Your Pup Howl-O-Ween Party.

Our first recommendation is to choose an outdoor venue. If your backyard is not large enough consider moving the festivities to your local dog park. Our second recommendation, plan on wearing costumes but if the whole costume thing becomes too stressful for either your dog or yourself, take it off. The bottom line is parties are about getting together and enjoying friends and family. It is not worth skipping the fun because of an aversion to costumes. Continue Reading →
