holiday prep with @theprimeparty

Happy to have @theprimeparty girls here today sharing the first of Small Fry’s Gift Guides! The Prime Party is actually made up of one my friends from childhood – hi Taylor! So fun to reconnect today and Taylor and her crew are giving away $100 to Amazon on Small Fry’s instagram, too!

So, for today’s guide: this one is all about getting you prepped for a smooth Holiday Season. It’s not easy being “in charge” time of year, so much to do and so many people to think about. I love all their awesome ideas!


You are invited to The Prime Party! 
We are 3 stay at home moms and we are passionate about Prime.
There is something magical about checking items off your errand list while you sit on the couch in your PJ’s. Christmas time does NOT have to mean long lines and crowded parking lots!! Let’s take back December! Let’s do it in our PJs!
If you don’t have Amazon Prime already, get it! Best $99 you’ll ever spend. We aren’t paid to say that. But like, we WOULD say it for money … if you know someone looking to pay us… Either way, you need prime. Get it here! Holiday Prep with @theprimeparty
Let us help you check off your Christmas to-do list right now! Are you in your PJs?
Have you ever volunteered to bring the paper goods for the class party…. and then you remember the morning of… and you run around town with kids in your car trying to find an open store just to learn that every store is closed or sold out of what you need!? We have. WE HAVE. Lesson learned. This year we are stocked up and ready for all the partying. From class parties to dinner parties. Bring it.

Happy Holidays plates & napkins // Merry Christmas Botanical Plates // White and Gold Holiday Set

Teacher gifts: 
No need to be fancy. The truth is, we’ve asked many teachers… gifts cards are king! An Amazon gift card is ALWAYS a good gift. // Prime also offers gift cards to Nordstrom Sephora, Movie theaters, and more!
Add a hand-written note from your child and there is not a better teacher gift.
Hostess Gifts: 
How many times have you been late to a party because you had to run by the store on your way there to get a hostess gift!? This year, we will be on time!
Capri Blue Volcano candle–  we haven’t met anyone who doesn’t love this candle  // Stance Christmas socks – festive and cozy! // Fun decor items are always a win!
Girlfriend gifts: 
Have you ever had a friend bring over a thoughtful gift and you were just standing there… wishing you had a gift to give her in return… ? Awkward.
These are a few of our most favorite things that could be given to ANY woman in your life (mom, sister, girlfriend, teacher…) Winning best girlfriend award!
Stanley 40 Oz Quencher — This cup is the best of the best. We’ve tried them ALL. Give it to anyone, with their favorite beverage, and they will love you. // Clarins lip oil. Everyone who has tried our lip oils, has purchased their own ASAP. Luxury on the lips. // Cool Firming Eye Gels–  For the girlfriend you really wish you could send to the spa for a day… this is the next best thing.
While you are at it, stock up on some wrapping supplies. You will surely need some.
Custom Return Address Stamp (Can you believe you can get these on Prime!? )
You’ve done good, friends. Real good. Don’t forget to take care of yourself as well!
We put this Lip Mask on every night before bed.  And this is our favorite hand lotion 
Be sure to join us on Instagram for more awesome ideas from Amazon. We always share the best of prime, from our carts to yours. Let’s Party!


Small Fry Home Tours: Johansson Upstairs

We’re back with the Johansson home! Today we’re touring their upstairs which has all their bedrooms – two shared, one nursery, one master. Catch their main floor here and all Small Fry Home Tours here.

Let’s start with their MASTER BEDROOM. Bathrooms below this post!Modern Home TourMore DIY art, seeing a theme?Modern Home Tour Lamp + SidetableModern Home Tour

DIY: art and the table underneath the TV! You can buy hairpin legs here to turn any surface you like into a Midcentury piece!

They have 4 boys and one baby girl, so the brothers share two in a room and baby Tuesday has her own nursery. Let’s go their next!


Serene greys and pinks with pops of brass and warm woods make this nursery stand apart from the other bold rooms in the house. When they built the house they were “done” having kids, but God has other plans sometimes right? Like get you pregnant a few days before your husband’s vasectomy kind of plans. True Story!Modern Home TourRashelle used my girl Mandi’s DIY for Sharpie pen graphics on a wall. It’s just the faintest sparkle that catches your eye and breaks up the grey walls tied in with that vintage brass mirror.Modern Home TourHunter are you a wizard? I love seeing Audrey reflected in that mirror. Modern Home Tour

Small Fry Home Tours: Johansson Bathrooms

The Johansson’s Modern home tour continues with the bathrooms! There are three in their space and each has it’s own personality! More Home Tours and posts from their home here!


On their main floor off you will find the bathroom with the most risks. And the most femininity! It can be hard to know where to play that up when you have mostly boys.

Obviously the main attraction of this bathroom is the wallpaper which Rashelle found on this Etsy shop – ColorRay Decor. Its a peel and stick and it was actually pretty easy to do. A lot easier than other types I have tried! This shop is FULL of killer prints. I will share a bunch more at the bottom of this post! Rashelle stuck to one wall so it wouldn’t feel like the pattern was closing in on you in the smaller space. Layered hand towels, and a patterned tile keep the bold feeling of this space going!Modern Home Tour Modern Home Tour


The circle rugs are the perfect pops of color and function, and Rashelle’s DIY art know-how add a graphic pop and a friendly reminder. Moms with boys will know. 😉Modern Home TourModern Home Tour

Rugs: Ikea (still in stock!) // Shower Curtain: Room Essentials Target — Similar: Schoolhouse Electric, Society 6, Target actual curtains, put a waterproof liner behind! Or this windowpane style is awesome, too! // DIY “Flush” print + Ikea frame. Vanity Lighting:

It is officially gift giving season and every year we say the same thing. Activity subscription deliveries make the best gifts! I love being able to give experiences and this is something totally non-invasive. The recipient can choose when they want to do it, and everything is ready right in this darling little box. (The BOXES, am I right? So good.) Let’s check The Little Archives out! Today is the last day to get 20% off too, so hop on it if you’re interested!Gift Idea: Little ArchivesThe first box we opened was a Make Your Own Monster Kit. Hayes worked on this for a full hour. It was the perfect amount of challenge and he felt pretty cool wielding a needle. They have a selection of monster templates, colorful felts, and all the tools you need to have a plush of your very own.Gift Idea: Little ArchivesHe added the arms and legs and wanted them to look like bananas. You do you, kid! It’s always a win when my perfectionist kid wants to stray from the directions. 😉Gift Idea: Little Archives

The second box we did was more Cal’s speed – miniature succulent pots! Mold, bake and display!Gift Idea: Little ArchivesHe did all the little dots and shaped them pretty amazingly well I must say. I only had to clean them up and put them together!Gift Idea: Little ArchivesWhy isn’t there a name yet for loving miniature things? Miniophile? Let’s come up with something because these make me squeal.
