How To Play Hooky With Your Kids | CatchMyParty.com

Last Wednesday, my husband and I picked our daughter up from school on her early dismissal day (1:05pm), and we all headed to Chuck E. Cheese's for a mid-week break. It really felt like playing hooky!

Wednesdays are usually one of our busiest days filled with school, after school activities, work, homework, laundry, etc.

I'm a big believer in creating DIY party decor that is fast, easy=, and inexpensive. And why do I believe that? Because if it's all three of those things, you're more apt to do it!

This is why I'm happy to share this 2016 tissue paper graduation party decor craft. It's simple to make, fast, and won't cost an arm and a leg, but the best part is that it is a show-stopper. Plus, you can customize the colors any way you like! We created this one in gold and black because those are the on-trend graduation party colors right now.

Patriotic Party and More!

by Jillian Leslie on

This week my favorite parties include: a red, white, and blue patriotic party, an enchanting fairy garden birthday, a wild jungle safari party, and a Little Red Riding Hood birthday party! | CatchMyParty.com

There were lots of fantastic parties added to our site this week, including an outdoor patriotic party perfect for Memorial Day or July 4th (both of which will be here before we know it)! I'm a big fan of adding a tent or teepee as party decor, and I love the homemade tent at this party!

I'm nursing a cold today. My nose is running. I have a pile of balled up Kleenex sitting next to me as I write this. But sharing gorgeous parties does lift my mood. Beauty has a way of helping me get out of my own way. So thank you, to all the creative people who add parties to our site.  You are the best medicine.

It's the end of the school year, and I like to give gift cards to my daughter's teachers to say thank you for all their hard work. But giving gift cards can feel a little impersonal.

So I came up with these easy toilet paper roll gift card holders that I absolutely love! Who knew gift cards fit so well in toilet paper rolls?
