watermellon popcicles

I found this recipe on Kraft and since they were so cute I had to give them a try. They turned out pretty good. I didn't have the right size paper cups so I used larger ones and it was a little too much popcicle so I'll definitely use the smaller ones next time. The kids gave them great reviews.

Teacher appreciation

I'm a new mom to the whole school thing. I don't know the ettiquette for gifting for teachers. I assumed for Teacher Appreciation week it would be a good time to send a little something to Quinton's teacher. It will probably end up in the "what the heck am I suppose to do with that" pile but oh well. Anyway this is what we sent to school for his teacher. It's a clipboard, that's teacherish right? Does anyone know what teachers like to get anyway so I can be working on something for the end of the year which is quickly approaching.

I got a call this morning asking if I had anything available for a centerpiece for a teacher appreciation lunch. Of course I couldn't just hand over a bud vase with a single Gerber daisy, so this is what I came up with on short notice. I had a million ideas fly through my head but had to work with what I had on hand. Oh well, still pretty cute.

Party hat in the works

This is one of the party hats I'm working on for my nephews birthday. I am still looking for something fun for the fringe at the bottom and have decided the circles are too big. I love the ribbons at the top and am planning these in yellow and black polka dots as well. I'll be sure to post the finished products. off to do some more searching.

Party, Party, Party!!!!!

I LOVE to throw a party and I'm doing a couple in the next few months that I am soooo excited about.

Coming up first is a baby shower for my good friend who is having her fifth. My theme for the party is "five little monkeys" and the colors are chocolate brown, light brown and light turquoise. I'll be sure to post pictures as I get things done for that one.

Then I have my nephews birthday that I'm helping my sister-in-law with since it's happening at the family reunion this year. He's having a construction party and the colors are red, yellow, and black. I'm doing the banner, party hats, cupcake toppers, invites, door sign, goodie bag tags, and confetti. It's been lots of fun helping with the planning, thanks Britt for letting me.

Next up is our girls night bunco group. I'm the hostess for June and of course I have to have a theme to go on so I chose to do "barefoot bunco". Lots of stuff to do with feet and summer. I have pedicure kits I got from the dollar store to put with the invites that I'm excited to do. And of course my prizes have everything to do with feet. Hopefully it's nice enough by then that we can start outside. fingers crossed.

And I know it's not until October but I've also started planning my girls birthday party. I found some great ideas and am going with a lollipop theme with the colors being light pink, hot pink, lime green, and teal. I've already made Ellie's tutu to match, way easy. I'll also make Holland one but I'm waiting until it's closer just because she'll change so much between now and then. I wonder how long I can get away with doing one party for both girls? (their birthdays are one and then the next the next day)

So here's a picture of my first tutu.

I completely forgot one. I'm helping a friend of mine do her cusomer/hostess appreciation party in July. We're doing a flirty french theme in black, white, and pink. Using damask, feathers, pink roses, etc. This should be super cute and fun to pull together.
