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.
My daughter is participating in the Kindy 500 this week at school. We had so much fun creating this Rainbow Dash Kindy 500 car. The Kindy 500 is an activity for the kids in Kindergarten where they get to “drive” to visit the different monuments in the USA and learn about them. Each child brings a cardboard box to drive around.
My son is so in love with the Peanuts Movie and LOVES Snoopy, so as his second birthday approached I knew I wanted to have a Peanuts birthday party. Hold on tight, I usually separate these posts since they are so photo heavy, but I’m combining all of the Peanuts birthday party ideas I used into one giant post today!
I’m excited to share with you my Halloween porch decorations this year. In years past, I’ve just focused on my front door (see my Skeleton, Frankenstein and Spider’s Web doors that are super easy DIY projects), but this year I wanted to decorate my entire front porch. I was inspired by the severed fingers I made last year to do a Witches theme and I think it turned out awesome!
I got a few new pieces to amp up my decor from the Halloween section of Oriental Trading and they were perfect! I still got to do a little bit of DIY crafting, but these pieces saved me a ton of time and look great!
For my daughters 5th birthday she was so excited to have a My Little Pony Birthday party! I searched the internet for great My Little Pony party ideas and found so many that it made putting this party together super easy. Now, you know I love to get my DIY on when it comes to the decorations, but I’ve been really sick with my pregnancy so this party was all store-bought – and honestly, it turned out so great. My daughter kept saying, “ADORABLE!” as I was setting up the decorations the night before, so I knew I was on the right track!
The first was Advice Cards. To help it fit with the Vintage Airplane theme, I ordered these Vintage Postcards on Amazon and asked guests to fill in advice to the new mom on them and slip them into the cute little suitcase. This was something that the guests could do while they mingled and it was helpful to the mom!
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 to create this holiday pie buffet sweetens the whole thing considerably! This post contains affiliate links.

With the hurried pace of the holidays, using ready made pie and whipped topping is the way to share the joy without spending all day in the kitchen.
