The “She’s Going to Pop” baby shower turned out so cute. My sister and I hosted the soiree for our sister-in-law. Since my brother and his wife live out of town, it was fun to get local family together to shower our SIL. The POP theme made it pretty easy to pull everything together. We [...]
For my mom’s birthday present this year, I had my 4-year old help design some kitchen towels. I don’t recall where I first saw this idea, but I always knew my mom would love it. I had my son draw his favorite foods and share a story about how they were made. I gave him [...]
I have been itching to share this project for months, but out of respect to my sister-in-law I had to make sure these were mailed out to guests first. As I mentioned previously, my sister and I are hosting a baby shower for my SIL in April. We chose “She is Going to Pop” for [...]
I have used balloons for past parties, but I am not that fond of the results. If you buy one of those party helium tanks it only lasts for one party. I have gotten creative and used helium-less balloons for a birthday morning surprise and for a
Have I mentioned how fun the bug party was? You can read all about the bug party food and decorations here, but today’s post is dedicated to the fun. Any party is usually fun for kids, but I think all ages enjoyed this party. We kept it really [...]
My house was covered in bugs Saturday morning to celebrate my youngest turning 2! We had big bugs, little bugs, and edible bugs. From bug decor to bug food, we had it covered.
Bug Party Decorations:
My favorite decorations for this party, was oddly not bug-related. In the spirit of the paper lantern chandelier on [...]
The bug party invitation prototype is done. Yes, I prototype my invitations. I design and print the prototype at home and then I usually send the file to a copy center to print on nice glossy paper with their fancy color laser printer. The images below are of the prototype, which was printed on plain [...]
Since I am practically begging you to take a moment and vote for Teal & Lime as the Best DIY Blog, the least I could do today is share an awesome DIY project with you!
Remember the last bug party update? Well, I turned the inexpensive [...]
I continue to make progress on the bug party…yay! I am so excited all the projects leading up to the party won’t be left for the week before. In my last bug party update, I shared a few decor and supply finds. Since that update, I finished making the
A twitter friend, @LittleBirdyMe, shared her valentine’s cake in a jar project. I instantly knew this would be the perfect treat for my coworkers. Plus, I have dozens of clean baby food jars screaming for a project like this.
To keep it simple, I picked up a [...]
Just when I thought every clever play on words valentine was taken, I came up with my own. We made some DIY magnets with a “Stuck On You” printable tag for our nanny. The magnets feature some cute fabrics from my stash.
I found a nice little DIY magnet kit at Target, [...]
The other night I spent hours chatting up my sister as we conspired to come up with the perfect baby shower theme for our sister-in-law. I am so excited to be co-hosting a little soiree for my out of town SIL. She will be coming to town just for the celebration with our side of [...]
For classroom Valentine’s this year, I wanted my son to have something unique and not-too-girly to share with his friends. I started out planning non-candy Valentine’s, but in the end I found a way to incorporate some sweet stuff. This tutorial will cover both a non-candy version and a candy version.
These candlestick candy jars were so easy to make and are going to be a great centerpiece for my son’s upcoming bug party. I found the mercury glass candlesticks at Target on clearance after the holidays for $6-8 each. I scoped out HomeGoods for weeks to find the perfect jars. Finally, I found some pretty [...]
This is proof. Proof that I am not procrastinating.
I haven’t done much since I created the bug party inspiration board, but I have been collecting decor and supplies. This is my little collection of goodies so far. Canlesticks, placemats, napkins, bamboo plates, and milk bottles…let me [...]
