Kids’ Birthday Parties

Bandanna Birthday Party

Bandanna Birthday Party
Creating a theme from scratch can be as simple as selecting fun paper and rubber stamps. Martha used bandanna and dot patterns to create a festive celebration that’s perfect for children of all ages.

Tea Birthday Party

Tea Party Birthday
 Cherry blossoms, finger foods, puppets, and, of course, tea create a room steeped in charm that little girls will love.

Tiny Birthday Party

Tiny Birthday Party
The big idea here is that it’s a small world after all. At this charming party, girls will feel like Alice after she goes tumbling down the rabbit hole

Polka Dots Birthday Party

Polka-Dot Birthday Party
What little girl doesn’t have a soft spot for polka dots? They’re colorful and playful — and most of all, they’re fun! With that in mind, celebrate a birthday by having everyone see spots.

Whacky Birthday Party

Invite a gaggle of girls (or boys) to celebrate silliness at your child’s next birthday.

Let’s cut to the chase yesterday I came to the realization that I am alive… but I am not living.

After losing three very close people to me this year.. It finally sank in that life is short and despite my responsibilities and daily chores… I need to find time to live.. Or at least live in the moment.. How do I do that..? That is the question that I am still trying to figure the answer to..

Maybe enjoy everything that I do in my day? Enjoy the time with my adorable kids which I already do but maybe put in more effort in it and truly cherish those moments. People are here today.. gone tomorrow.. that is the lesson I have been taught this year… I need to appreciate the people in my life and most importantly.. MAKE time for them. Even if I don’t have the time.. I promise myself to find the time and pick up the phone and ask how they are doing and wait for their answer.

There’s always a lesson to be learnt as life passes us by.. and value and appreciate the people I know and care about is my biggest lesson, challenge and blessing. Will that make me feel like I am living? Maybe.. 

Until next time.. I have a very important phone call to make.. Actually make that a few!!
