Gabby's Art Party

This year has been TOTALLY different with party planning.  I will share details later.  However, I was able to pull off a successful art themed party for my baby girl.  I can't take credit for a lot of the goodies (i.e. food, cake, cookie, colorful popcorn), but the planning came together!  The kids loved painting their canvases, making sand filled necklaces, old school parachute play, and a paint themed Easter Egg hunt in the back yard.  Mommy is tired, but baby girl had a blast!
Party Time!

Mason & Co.

Things are super busy at work and I'm trying to ramp up planning for my daughter's birthday party.  However, one of my sorority sisters asked me to help create a few goodies for a shower she is hosting.  The theme is a Tiffany's theme and she asked if I could create personalized favor bags and a cupcake stand...you can do ANYTHING with a cricut and some imagination!

A Day of Love

I had so much fun watching the children decorate cookies for Christmas, so I decided to carry the fun into Valentines.  I hosted a card exchange and cookie decorating party for the little ones.  I embroidered their names on felt envelopes and tried to make the day extra special and full of love.

Cookie Decorating Party

Unfortunately, I do not have a lot of pictures to share, but I hosted a Christmas Eve party with over 40 guests.  The food was catered, but I made sugar cookies for the kids to decorate.  I also used Cricut vinyl to personalize plates and aprons for each little guest.  The kids had a ball decorating cookies!

Science Party Woohoo!

My mom usually hosts my nieces' birthday parties, but she was a bit floored when my niece asked for a science themed party.  Being an engineer and total science geek, I was thrilled to tackle this theme...even with only two weeks to plan and execute!  Check out some of the fun things from the party!  I made t-shirt lab coats and solicited the help of my crafting partner in crime to help with vinyl work on the water bottle favors.  The kids loved the science experiments during the party...growing snow and blowing balloon using vinegar and baking soda were huge hits!

 Science Badges & Lab Coats

 The kids LOVED the experiments!

 Each child received a science notebook for collecting data (Dollar Tree!)

 Who does love Pop Rocks & Bubble Gum Molecules!?!?!

Election Day

My daughter had a 2 hour delay at school today, so that meant mommy had to keep her entertained while trying to work (yay!  to early voting!)  I decided to make some election themed activities that worked on color, name, and number recognition and also threw in a little fine motor practice.

Happy Halloween!

My family has never been big on celebrating Halloween, but my neighborhood does it BIG! I decided to make my daughter a special shirt for school and made her classmates some special non-candy treats.
