Puppy Party Dog Collar Charms

One of my favorite puppy party ideas that I discovered was creating an adopt-a-puppy station as the party favor.  I decided to take this favor idea a step further and make it the party activity.  Due to the young age group, we focused on decorating dog carrier boxes (medium white gable boxes).  It was definitely enough to keep our group of two […] Read more…

Paw Print Puppy Cupcakes

  After a few parties of experimentation, I can officially conclude that if you are only going to have one dessert at a kid’s birthday party, stick with cupcakes. They are easy to make (or buy at a bakery in a pinch), less messy than cake and their single serving size makes them perfect for […] Read more…

Puppy Party Dog Bone Wreath

I’m so excited to share special touches from Little Bug’s second birthday party last month. One of Little Bug’s favorite things is puppies. She’s a dog lover through and through – from stuffed animals to her pull puppy toy she likes to take on walks around the neighborhood. When asked what theme she wanted for […] Read more…

Free Printable Halloween Fingerprint Pumpkin Patch Cards

One of the last projects I’m working on this week is creating this year’s Halloween cards. As I’ve mentioned before, going to the card store has become quite an experience that usually ends with a lot of card throwing. So, I’ve started to find creative ways to create my own cards at home such as […] Read more…

Polka Dot Halloween Candle Vases

One of my favorite decorations for any holiday is the candleholder. Clear glass vessels are so easy to find (you can even get them at a Dollar Store). From the plain glass vessel you can add paint, embellishments or even glass etching like I did with my Thanks candleholders last Thanksgiving. And although these polka dot […] Read more…
