Lucy & Winnie’s Fairy Birthday Party

Lucy & Winnie’s Fairy Birthday Party

We recently celebrated Lucy and Winnie turning 6 and 4 with a festive fairy party! I’ve shared detailed blog posts highlighting past parties (including a cheetah/party animals party and an adopt-a-puppy party) and also wanted to recap this fairy party. We had a lot of fun putting together this party and getting lost in fun, festive details to bring this whimsical joint birthday party to life. Here are the details of Lucy and Winnie’s fairy party! 🧚🏻‍♀️🍄✨🌿 THEME & INSPIRATION A few months ago, I asked Lucy and Winnie to work together to come up with their birthday party theme. They decided they wanted a […]

Sensory-Friendly Kids Calm Down Basket

Sensory-Friendly Kids Calm Down Basket

Big feelings, meltdowns, temper tantrums… we’ve all been there. 😵‍💫 I recently put together a ‘calm down basket’ for my girls when they need some extra space, help to calm and regulate their emotions, and/or a sensory break. We also have a kids’ weighted blanket that’s available. These toys aren’t a magical cure-all, but have really provided a great outlet for our girls when they need it! I’ve included photos of everything in our ‘calm down basket’ below and you can shop all the sensory-friendly toys HERE.

Celebrating Jack’s 7th Birthday

Celebrating Jack’s 7th Birthday

This blog post is in partnership with BISSELL. We love a good party around here and never hesitate to celebrate! It’s hard to believe, but our sweet dog Jack turned 7 (!!) in November. We recently threw him a little Saturday morning tea party/dance party birthday celebration and it had the best time! I have quite the collection of extra party supplies, so I dug out the pup-themed supplies from Lucy and Winnie’s joint birthday puppy party for our tea party celebrating Jack! We brought out the puppy stuffies to join in on the fun, enjoyed a little snack plate and some ‘tea’ (apple juice), went […]

Trader Joe’s Cheese Plate

Trader Joe’s Cheese Plate

I recently made a cheese plate for Friendsgiving and was so pleased with how it turned out!  I  bought everything from Trader Joe’s — which is definitely my go-to for the best cheese plate supplies! I started with four kinds of cheese — brie, cranberry chèvre goat cheese, unexpected cheddar cheese, syrah-soaked Toscano cheese. Then I added two types of crackers (fig and olive crisps + gluten-free savory thin crackers) plus fig butter, salami, prosciutto, cotton candy grapes, blackberries, dried apricots, candied walnuts, and marcona rosemary almonds. I topped it with some rosemary sprigs for some extra color and viola – an easy-ish, affordable cheese […]
