australian kids fashion

It has been awhile for our Thursday Threads but today we’re back and we’re going Down Under! Australia is consistently putting out some of our favorite brands and we wanted to share them with you today!

We can’t tell you how MUCH we love these Two Tykes onesies. Every print is unique, to die for and the cut of the onesie is so perfect. They are a thick cotton and are the most durable we’ve ever seen. You just don’t see this quality very often.australia2

Guys. Sapling Child. They have bloomers with a huge heart on them. We feel lie that should say enough about it but there’s also halter bubble rompers and cozy onesies. It’s delicate and beautiful for both boys and girls. Jaimie King also just collaborated on a line with them and well… she’s perfect and so is Sapling Child!australia3

Bow Ties can be oh so wrong or oh so right and Hugo’s Wardrobe does it more than right. Every pattern is gorgeous and will make your boy stand out in a crowd. The shape is beautiful and the craftsmanship flawless. Love this Australian Mamma owned brand.australia4Lastly but for sure not least is HUXBABY. Even if you don’t have a baby just go to their website. Their design is so innovative, fresh, clean and stunning. We love that the pieces can be mix matched within the collection making several different outfits out of a couple pieces.

Have you been following Australian fashion or are you from Australia? Leave a comment with some brands should we check out! G’day!

A May Shower

By Jenna.

I love a baby shower and I LOVE giving gifts so when I was asked by Boogie Wipes to throw a shower for some of my friends with small babies I was thrilled!! shower1I kept decor simple because the gifts I got to spoil my guests with were decoration enough!! The kids helped me put the gift bags together and were having the best time doing it. I love finding things for my kids to participate helping in for a party–even if it’s an adult one!shower2 Baby Shower Musts!Our guests were given Boogie Mist which I’ve never used, but heard rave reviews about from guests in attendance, the super mild Saline mist is great for stuffy noses, Boogie Wipes which are the ultimate for colds and running noses because they’re soooo soft and smell delicious, a Dreft pen which should be in every bag you own it’s so great for all the many stains kids accumulate and Downy Wrinkle Releaser which does JUST as it says! Get a coupon for the Downy Wrinkle Releaser here!Baby Shower Musts!My kids die over the smell of these grape Boogie Wipes, it reminds me of those grape sodas I loved as a kid! shower5Now for the fun part! We were spoiled with so many wonderful gifts I couldn’t decide how to give them away! So I did what any uncreative person would do…names in a bowl! It worked and the guests loved getting free loot!shower6I’ve never seen this gift bag behind me from Munchkin, but I’m obsessed with it. It’s the ultimate baby shower gift and they’re always so good at modern and innovative baby products! Any mom-to-be would be thrilled to get that bundle!showerfoodNow on to the food because that’s ALWAYS the best part of a shower, right?! I was feeling super Palm Desert-y so I did a center piece of succulents, a ceramic pineapple and these tropical napkins. And I had mini Fiji waters to complete the vibe!Wild Carrot & Beet Salad Recipe

Zurchers Party Store (one of three stores that Small Fry basically runs on) is working with us this Summer on bringing some of their beloved party themes to life!

Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 4.15.35 PMThey have this incredible cardboard line of brightly colored dinosaur party accessories from Meri Meri that instantly adds that festive flair. The Dinosaur Cardboard Centerpiece is so rad and looks great even as nursery room decor post-party. They come with Dino Party Hats seen below:Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 4.28.19 PMAnd then of course we whipped some up with their standard party hat, too. We like the idea of the birthday boy or girl getting a special hat and these razor sharp party toppers are super easy to make!Dino Party!Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 4.15.07 PMThe food is always super important and for this party we decided to go healthy as can be. All in the name of those veggie-sauruses!Dino Party!A party activity that the we and the boys died laughing over was “Eat like a T-Rex!” Slip their arms into the shirt sleeves and watch as they eat their party food with their stubby T-Rex arms.Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 4.13.26 PMOnce they were convinced that dinosaurs eat all manner of leafy greens they didn’t even ask where the donuts were. We also had green smoothies (dino juice), easy sandwiches and more veggies! (Milk Jars + Straws // Plastic Dinos + Plates)Dino Party!

They have them in several colors and even though they’re crazy inexpensive they’re reusable so you can get quiet a collection going!Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 4.15.16 PMThis line also has a ton of wall decals which are great for more color and interest at the party, we turned them into a Feed the Dino (Pin the Tail on the Donkey) game.Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 4.14.57 PMAnother easy party game is to make your own Dino paleontologist style.Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 4.12.52 PMThey have a million party favors so sending each guest home with something ferocious like these Dino Grabbers was a breeze and so fun to pick out!Screen Shot 2015-05-02 at 4.13.44 PMWe’re so happy to be recreating these themes with Zurchers and if you have any parties you want to see brought to life Small Fry style, let us know!

We started with this gorgeous A-Line striped dress with gold metallic slip-in slides (they come in black snake skin too, amazing.) We love simple pairing like this for the warmer months and that the dress easily carries through all seasons!

For your boy:

We couldn’t help but coordinate a little bit with this darling woven short suit. H&M Mom & MeThis baby is lined and so well-made and of course has that H&M price tag that we love. You can get the suit coat in several colors all for $34.95, and the shorts are only $17.95! Such a steal.H&M Mom & Me

Here’s the suit in that on-trend chambray denim hue with matching sneakers. We love pairing this formal suit with some easy sneakers, it makes it feel less stuffy and more playful. These are perfect sneakers for Summer and they come in a few colors for $12.95.

lost tooth favorites

It officially happened, our first Small Fry, Quinn, lost his first tooth. Make way for the awkwardly large adult teeth! With lost teeth on our minds we’ve been browsing the web for what traditions we want to accompany this milestone with our kids. Here’s what we found!Lost Tooth TraditionsThe Tooth Fairy Door — How amazing are these tiny doors?  Spotted on Jaimee Rose, where she bought doll house sized doors and accessories and created a way for the Tooth Fairy to get into the house to swap a tooth for a present. Lost Tooth Traditions

A second tradition we love is having the kids write letters to the Tooth Fairy letting her know that a tooth is on the loose. Handmade Charlotte has these amazing printables (7 more on her site!) that include replies from the Tooth Fairy, too!Lost Tooth TraditionsIt’s hard not to obsess over these tiny, tiny, TINY! letters you can customize and order via Charming Words on EtsyLost Tooth TraditionsOffice of the Tooth Fairy wins for their beautiful letter pressed set. It comes with an official record and details on each lost tooth, and linen bag, a tooth envelope. SO pretty.Lost Tooth TraditionsAnother tradition we love is sprinkling a trail Tooth Fairy dust to their pillow. Might be a mess, but it’s also magic and they will squeal with delight. Maybe dab a little on their nose and their money for an extra squeal or two. These bottles would work perfectly to catch the dust into.

And finally, losing a tooth can be scary for little ones, and we can vividly rememebr that ache that comes when it finally gets pulled free. Help ease their mind with these sweet book, Where Do Our Baby Teeth Go?

NEXT up, we love the little heirloom Tooth Fairy Pillow that they can keep forever, here’s some really pretty options from around the web:Tooth Fairy Pillows

Bright and graphic pillows with pockets on the back, this one comes with a tooth journal! Via Nordstrom. // We love that these Tooth Fairy boxes are DIY, so your kiddo can make their own. Makes that heirloom extra special. // Of course Land of Nod always has a darling option for any special kiddo occasion. // This one is called the “Twinkle Toof” and glows in the dark and opens to a compartment and a clip to hold your money. // This Pillow bag via Loop Loft on Etsy is another cool one because you can personalize it with the dates each tooth was lost and its all in once nice package so nothing gets lost. // Another cute, bright and graphic option via New Mom Designs on Etsy! // This sweet Tooth Fairy in a box has a tiny pocket on her dress and would be a cozy addition to any girl’s bed or shelf!

Lastly, since we rarely talk about teeth we just had to throw these two into this post and see who has used and loved them!? We’ve heard amazing things about this Clear Shield Flouride Paste that you paint right onto your kids teeth at night (it comes in flavors like bubble gum and cookie dough, but you need to get it from a dentist!) And then the Colgate Sensitive Pen you can buy over the counter, and paint right onto sensitive gums or at the base of a nerve exposed tooth and it seals it for up to a week! They both sound so cool we wanted to share and see what you all thought.
