It's that time again! My daughter goes back to school two weeks from today. Third grade, here we come!
To get your kids ready and excited for back-to-school, we put together some great back to school party ideas to inspire you. We've included party foods, free printables, fun decorations, party favors and more. So let's get into it...
Skinny Cow asked me to do a Part 2 to my first post on how I indulge myself. So I'm sharing something I do every day that feels decadent, indulgent, and delicious... I drink green oolong tea and chocolate, and I do it in the morning!
After I've gotten Lainey, my daughter, off to school or camp, I come home, and while it's still quiet (my husband works late into the night and sleeps in), I make my first cup of green oolong, and I take a piece of chocolate. I eat my chocolate and drink my tea while I ease into my morning. It's the only way I can face my inbox.
Star Wars is huge in my house. When the two teasers came out for the new movie, The Force Awakens, my husband and daughter rushed to watch them, and watched them over and over again.
So when Disney asked me to come up with a few ideas for throwing an easy Star Wars party, I was delighted. I didn't have a lot of time to plan, and I wanted to keep my budget small, so here's how I did it... And I think it turned out great.
When I see a new trend showing up on our site, I love to share it.
That's why I've rounded up these beautiful bohemian tribal parties. They have lots of Native American touches like teepees, arrows, dream catchers, and feathers, but to give them a more ethereal feel, the color palette is usually pastel, and there are lots of soft details, like fabric and ribbons.
My dad just turned 80 and we had a big party to celebrate in NJ (which is why I'm writing this from my plane heading home). It was a beautiful party and my dad is in great shape for his age, but I still can't believe he's not the young guy I remember from my childhood wearing tennis clothes, driving a Datsun, and sporting a big a mustache. Time has gone so fast.
This is why I believe so strongly in milestones and celebrations, even little one. It's a way to stop and enjoy the people you love, before life moves on.
