Each Friday my daughter has a playgroup for two hours with all of the little girls her age in our neighborhood. The moms rotate who hosts and I got lucky enough to host on Friday, February 12th! I was giddy when I found out because that means I get to do a fun Valentine’s Day party for them!
These ideas are all really inexpensive and easy to put together. I only have 7 girls coming, but they really could work for any size group.
I think it’s safe to say that Inside Out was a favorite movie for people of all ages last year. It’s lighthearted and kid centered enough to keep my daughter enthralled, but had layers of deeper meaning that for the big kids/adults. It’s the perfect movie to turn into a birthday party if you ask me!
One of our favorite movies last year was HOME by Dreamworks. OH, Tip (Gratuity), Lucy, Kyle, Captain Smeck, Pig the cat – the whole lot are hilarious! I love that the movies are geared for kids, but have enough wit and humor that adults enjoy them too. As I mentioned in my Cinderella post, my daughters birthday isn’t for 6 months, but this is one of the ideas we’re brainstorming for her party and I thought I’d share the ideas I have in case you’re looking to host one yourself. So, again, while I don’t have finished party photos – hopefully they’ll give you a good jumping off point!
2015 was a great movie year in my opinion! We especially loved the new Cinderella movie. My daughters birthday isn’t for 6 months, but we’re already brainstorming on different themes. The new Cinderella movie is one that she really loves, and while it is similar to her Disney Princess party from last year, I have come up with a few ideas I wanted to share in case you are planning a Cinderella birthday party.
Entertaining for the holidays is one of my favorite things (along with rain drops on roses and red woolen mittens)! Being sponsored by Collective Bias, Inc. and it’s advertiser sweetens the whole thing considerably! #ShareTheJoyOfPie #CollectiveBias
A holiday pie buffet will give your guests a warm welcome to your home and invoke memories of family gatherings of the past. Best of all, pie can be served warm out of the oven, at room temperature or even cold – so no matter what else is going on that day, it’s the perfect dessert to serve at your holiday gathering. With the hurried pace of the holidays, using Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pie and Reddi-wip® Whipped Topping is the way to share the joy of pie without spending all day in the kitchen.
With just a few dollars and a few supplies, I turned a “Cousin It” looking bush/tree in my front yard into a Halloween MONSTER! Let me explain how you can DIY your own Monster Tree Eyes to spookifiy (or add hilarity) to your yard for Halloween!

Each Christmas we decorate a traditional gingerbread house, for Valentines Day we turn it into a Love Shack, and this year we are making a Halloween Haunted House! When I saw the Halloween themed PEEPS® Brand Marshmallows at Target they practically begged me to use them on a Halloween Gingerbread house. As you know, we host a family Halloween party each year and each family brings a craft, game or activity. Well, these are going to be our craft this year! I’ll make one for each family to decorate together.
Along with the perfect PEEPS® I made life super simple by using a Betty Crocker™ Sugar Cookie Mix to create the house. Let me walk you through it:
