Spring/Easter Door Hanger

 I am a bit late over here but I finally finished my Easter Wreath!

I found the Easter Silhouette Glitter Door Hanger over at Oriental Trading for $2.29 along with some cute spring color ribbons!

The door hanger is made out of really thick cardboard so I was unable to punch holes to tie the ribbons so I just use my hot glue to add the ribbons to the door hanger! ;)

Easter Party + FREE Printables

I always have a blast styling a party using Amanda's Parties To Go printable! Amanda designs the most adorable and colorful printables! 
The dessert table was full of easy and colorful treats that were a feast to our tummies and eyes! To create the pallet backdrop, I glued several pieces of scrapbook paper found at Hobby Lobby to a foam board. I attached the Happy Easter Banner from the Easter Collection and added mini wreaths to the backdrop. The sweets include Kisses push up pops, Tulip cake pops,  hershey's chocolate, chocolate eggs, chocolate bunnies, jelly beans and sweet popcorn. I kept the sweets simple and focused on the presentation using a lot of Spring items and took advantage of the huge items included on the Easter printable set to really make the party pop.
The craft activity was build and paint your own bird house and of course we had an Easter Egg Hunt.  A fun and  happy way to welcome Spring and celebrate Easter!

The EASTER FREEBIE PRINTABLES set includes lots of great designs like a banner, centerpiece circles, bunny cut outs, cross cut outs, cupcake toppers, drink flags, favor tags, napkin wraps, drink wraps and party signs, too.

St. Patrick's Day Party

With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, now is the time to start planing your get together!Amanda's Parties to Go and I teamed up to help make the festivities easy and fun for you! With theFREE St. Patrick's Day Printable Setthe party a breeze to style.

I created a colorful sweet/snack table for the kids with a rainbow backdrop made out of ribbons and displayed the banner from the set. Using the icons from the printable set, I creates the center pieces for the the sweet table and the kids table. 

Circle tags included in the set and ribbon were used to dress up the candy containers. I also used the tags to embellish the popcorn containers. The rainbow flags were added on the kabobs sticks and lollipops for an extra pop of color.

 As for healthy snacks, the guests enjoyed leprechaun whole wheat sandwiches, rainbow fruit kabobs, veggies and orange juice. After their lunch, the children had fun making rainbow necklaces and finding gold coins around the backyard. It was finally time to enjoy some sweets! Rainbow cupcakes, M&M's, Hershey's kisses, lollipops and cinnamon popcorn were enjoyed by all!

Instead of the traditional rainbow and pot of gold favor, I created a cute favor by dressing up green pails using cupcake wrappers, filling them with gold coins and finishing up by adding a rainbow lollipop. Each child also took home a rainbow notebook, rainbow crayons, shamrock necklace, shamrock headband and tattoos.

I hope these ideas and the FREE printable set offer help you plan your own St. Patty's Celebration!
