Halloween Party Hats!

Are you throwing a Halloween party this month? We’ve got two tips to make your hosting gig that much easier. First, start with this Halloween Party Kit via Land of Nod!

TMNT Birthday Party

As promised, here is our Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle party for Target!  Part of the party’s agenda was to first have each kiddo decide what Turtle they wanted to “be” for the party.

Each guest was instructed to wear the colors of his or her chosen turtle … Read more

He has his own way of saying just about everything and it brings a smile to my face everyday. So why not throw party all about exactly who he is at this moment. We focused everything on his favorite foods said only the way Cal can. Now, I am an anti-party planner. I avoid going all out at all costs, but my lifelong love for … Read more
