PO.P Art

We’re always excited when brands take a special interest in exciting imagery and design that boys (and girls) will love!  We just wanted to share Polarn O. Pyret’s new PO.P Art line of limited edition posters and t-shirts, which are all so vibrant and modern and right up Small Fry’s alley.

Here’s how we’ve stuck them into our decor:

The style has that fine art quality, you can see the brush strokes and splatters and it all feels very youthful but still clean.

Even in three very different homes the poster pops!

Valentine’s Day Breakfast

We whipped up this special love day breakfast, which is pretty simple for one festive pay-out, so if you’re looking for a way to make this Saturday morning extra special we’ve got you covered! First we started with Caravan Shoppe‘s darling line-up of digital downloads for Valentine’s Day: their back drop and  table topper are so pretty and the kids can color right on both!

Valentine's BreakfastA bundle of tulips, plump raspberries and sliced strawberries with whipped cream on our favorite Kodiak Cakes pancakes.Valentine's BreakfastValentine's BreakfastNext coat glass milk bottles (we use these – over and over again!) with a little icing and dunk in a plate of sprinkles and top with a cute straw or two.Valentine's BreakfastAnd because it’s only Valentine’s once a year, powdered donuts sprinkled with this Wilton set.Valentine's Breakfast Valentine's BreakfastAnd to top off your stack of pancakes, a little pipe cleaner heart! All you need is a skewer and a red pipe cleaner. Start with the middle of the pipe cleaner and form your heart. Then take the two remaining tails and wrap them down and around the skewer to keep it in place. Easy enough!Valentine's Breakfast

Pixelated Valentine’s Box

Just in the nick of time for our kids’ classroom Valentine’s Day parties! Valentine’s boxes are tricky for boys, so here’s a colorful and cool option that avoids all that yucky love stuff. Their words, not ours.

You’ll need colorful squares in a small color palette:
Pixelated Valentine's BoxGlue or glue stick and a cardboard box. Cut your envelope hole and then start glueing on the squares.Pixelated Valentine's BoxCover the box overlapping only slightly and trimming squares when you hit corners and slots. (Card via Paper Bandit Press)Pixelated Valentine's BoxBest of all, the boys could do it basically from start to finish (except for cutting the slot) and they love being able to be involved, so this one wins!Pixelated Valentine's BoxWould it be the week of Valentine’s Day if we didn’t dust this baby off? It’s our pride and joy and it never gets old!
