As promised, the next up in our favorite book list — Activity Books! Whether it’s to keep everyone quiet and entertained at a restaurant, church, flight, long drive, or even just after school, we love having these on hand to offer instead of a show or video game.
Books for teaching to draw, using your imagination, using your brain, and all pages of fun!
Hello 2016!!! What’s better than a fresh start, new goals and a new beginning?? Not much but your new 2016 Calendar! It’s one of the more exciting parts of our New Year #moms and so today we’re sharing some of our favorites and personally purchased calendars for 2016!
We are loving seeing all the top 9 posts of 2015 on Instagram, so for our last post of the year we wanted to know what your top posts were on Small Fry! We know not every post can be a hit, but we always love seeing what resonates with you all and here’s what worked in 2015. We can’t wait to see you back here in 2016 with more Small Fry style and more of what we know you love.
1. Why I Chose to Bottlefeed. This post went crazy and we think its because it gave a voice to women who felt like they couldn’t speak up without judgement. All sides of the discussion were so respectful and we are super proud of this one!
2. Lolly’s Birthstory and Nursery Reveal. Lolly’s arrival early last year was so exciting! She is the sweetest and been along for every ride and trip and we love you, Lolly!!
We had to share this darling Winter Party from Twink + Sis before we head out for our Christmas break! This is such a refreshing take on Holiday themes, with bright colors and natural elements. We love it!! Welcome, Marlan!
“My sister and I wanted to create a fun holiday playdate for our kids (Mila, 3 and Brixton, 2) and their friends. Inspired by gold bells, we set out to create a backdrop resembling that look. We came up with a balloon installation made up of huge gold balloons from Koyal Wholesale.
We loved the idea of bringing Christmas trees to the table, so we filled the space with three Noble fir tabletop trees from Mr. Greentrees, dripping in paper ornaments that we DIY’ed.
Our centerpiece is a homemade naked cake (gluten-free pumpkin with cream cheese frosting) topped with sugared fruit (persimmon, pear and grapes) and pine branch.
Meri Meri’s partyware provided the perfect setting with kraft star plates and napkins, accompanied by Santa and reindeer cups with matching straws.
The kids had a blast getting to pop open all the Meri Meri Christmas crackers.We love a little custom element, so each place setting has a pine branch on the plate and a gold pom pom attached to the fork. We asked the kids to wear their favorite jammies, but not necessarily Christmas jammies, because we wanted it to be fun and cozy without pushing the Christmas theme too far.
The kids did a toddler-friendly pine cone craft, while sipping on hot chocolate and listening to Christmas music.
