My cute little guy just turned 3 and he LOVES tractors! Not farming tractors (although, he does like those), the big CONSTRUCTION tractors! My husband uses them in his work and my son LOVES to go see “Daddy’s tractors”! In fact, he thinks any tractors we see as we are out and about are “Daddy’s tractors”. So, we planned a really fun Construction Birthday Party for him and a few of his friends and had loads of fun!

Let’s DIG right in to the fun details!

Trunk Or Treat Monster

This post may contain affiliate links. A small commission is paid to me if purchases are made through them. I was sent products from Oriental Trading to use in this post. 

Each year we attend a Trunk or Treat in my in-laws neighborhood. It is amazing to see the trunk or treat decorating ideas people come up with! My favorite part about a Trunk or Treat is that it brings everyone outside and it feels like a PARTY! I wanted to create an easy trunk or treat idea to share and came up with my Trunk or Treat Monster! Isn’t it cute?! It took about an hour to assemble the decorations and about 30 minutes to put it all up. Not bad for a totally awesome trunk! My neighbors thought I was a little odd staging this in my yard in September, but that’s what bloggers do. And, now it is all ready to put up on Halloween!

**Now, a word on adhesive. Use painters tape or masking tape if you are adhering something to the paint of your car. 

***My Trunk Or Treat round up has over a dozen Halloween trunk decorating ideas and I’ll add this over there to. Be sure to check it out!

Unicorn Party – Decorations and Food

This post may contain affiliate links. If purchases are made through them I receive a small compensation. Products were sent to me from Oriental Trading to use in this party – Thanks OT!!

When I set out to plan this Unicorn party I started on Pinterest (probably like most of you) and found some really amazing ideas! What was harder to find were ideas that were easy to duplicate. My budget and party plan didn’t really allow for one of those amazing Unicorn cakes, but I really wanted a Unicorn centerpiece. I think you’ll find that the Unicorn party decorations I made are not only easy to do, but great on your budget and time! The food at any party is my favorite part and this Unicorn party food was really fun to plan! I’ll share the rest of the Unicorn party crafts and activities in a second post. For now, onto the party decorations and party food!

Fidget Spinner Pinata DIY

Has your house caught the FIDGET SPINNER bug yet? They are everywhere and I have to admit, they are pretty fun to play with! My nephew knows how to make a fidget spinner and made some for himself and his siblings. I think building your own fidget toy is a great way to encourage mechanical minds! This fidget spinner pinata would be perfect at a tween birthday party! It is made of common products and only took about 1 hour to make (it may have gone faster if I weren’t stopping to take pictures) and about $5 in supplies (including the oatmeal in the can). If you’ve ever looked at buying a pinata for a party, they can be really pricey! Add to that the cost of the candy and it can break your budget!

Fidget Spinner Pinata - DIY your kids favorite fidget toy for a perfect Fidget Spinner party!

If you’re hosting a fidget spinner birthday party, giving a fidget spinner as a party favor is a no brainer! But I really think these glow party supplies work so great with the fidget spinner party theme!

Back To School Gift

Boy, am I ready to go out to lunch with my girlfriends! I LOVE the fun and flexibility of summer break, but it feels like I haven’t seen my girlfriends in FOREVER! Family reunions, vacations, camps, etc. keep everyone out of town and going from one activity to the next! I thought this back to school gift would be the perfect thing to give my them. I’m hoping they will drop their kids off at school that first day, draw a hot bath with the bath bomb and soak in it while sipping an ice cold Diet Coke and eating the chocolate. Sounds heavenly right about now, doesn’t it?

Trolls Birthday Party Invitation

The links in this post contain affiliate links and I will receive a small commission if you make a purchase after clicking on my link.

In just a few weeks my little girl turns 6! I’m not sure how time has passed so quickly, but I certainly am not ready to have a 6 year old! She has wanted a Trolls roller skating party since seeing the movie and so I put together her Trolls birthday party invitation the other day. I went to the DreamWorks Trolls movie page, copied an image from the main page and pasted it into my publisher program. It had some text in the center so I just added my own text box over the top of it with the party info. Then I saved the files and emailed them out. We are out of town up until the party, so this year it is going to be a little different than her past parties where I decorate the  entire party space to fit the theme (like her Pirate, Butterfly, Disney Princess and Rainbow parties). In fact, we will be having it at a fun center that has a roller skating rink, bouncy toys and an arcade. She is REALLY excited! I am excited that I at least get to put together cute favor bags for the party!  

Trolls Birthday Party Invitation

Trolls Birthday Party Invitation

I really like to theme the wording on the invite, so I used the lyrics from one of the songs in the movie as the intro to the invitation. Cute, right?! And, my favorite part is the NO TROLLS LEFT BEHIND rsvp. 🙂

Planning a Trolls themed party? These are my favorite party supplies:

  • Hot Pink Tulle : so you can make those super cute Poppy hair/headbands – this is my favorite tutorial for them on Pinterest
  • Trolls Cupcake Kit: The cupcake wrappers alone make me want this kit – so darling!!
  • Trolls Pez Dispensers (pack of 12): they are the cutest party favor ever!
  • Trolls Party kit: this is a FREE party kit done by DreamWorks that has invitations, party flags, a Pin the Hair on Creek game and free cupcake circles! FREE – that’s the best party supply ever! Just download it and print!

47 Teacher Appreciation Doors

Last month we celebrated Teacher Appreciation week at my daughters elementary school. There were so many creative teacher appreciation doors! I was at the school helping with the Teacher Appreciation lunch and breakfast that week so I walked around and snapped pictures of them. I shared several of them on instagram, but today I wanted to share them here as well. I also collected a few from friends of mine as well as a few from my daughters elementary school a few years ago.
